“Great Place To Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2012

Just a short walk to downtown. Close to shops & restaurants. Spacious, clean rooms and a neat kitchen. Breakfast provisions a bonus. Great place to stay.

This was fine for a short stay it was clean and the staff friendly enough but i wouldnt stay any longer than maybe 2-3 nights as it felt a bit cramped for a family.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

Judging from other reviews, I was a little apprehensive before arriving. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was large (living area, small kitchen, and separate bedroom) and comfortable. I read a review where someone complained about the beds, but mine was very comfortable. The room had good heat, was quiet, and, most importantly, was clean. Free internet! and a newspaper at your door in the morning. In the refrigerator, there was milk, butter, two eggs, and bread (nice touch). Staff was very friendly. If you are not in shape, make sure you ask for a room on the bottom floor. I was on the top level and had to walk up two flights of stairs with my luggage. All in all, a very comfortable, inexpensive place to stay. It is also very close to the university and has ample off-street parking.

Booked online from Australia 6 weeks previous to leaving with adult family of four. The price was good below $200.Provided was queen bed separate room with 2 singles in the combined living lounge. Close to shops and easy interesting walk to town center.
The whole family was satisfied which is hard to do for 4 fuzzy adults. Internet connection and laptop provided free. For overnight or short stay very good value. Clean cosy and comfortable.TV a little dated but works ok. Hosts very friendly. Would use again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

We really enjoyed our stay at Farrys and wonder if the negative comments relate to another place as they don't match our experience at all. The rooms were spacious and the bedroom was separate from the living area. A further bonus were the two couches which meant you could really relax and watch TV in comfort like you were at home. Everything was clean. Decor was perhaps older in style but not offensive at all - and less clinical than some hotels that try too hard to be fancy. The best part was how quiet it was at night. We were not woken up by noisy street antics in George Street - something we cannot say for the newer places on the same street. And the guests themselves were more quiet when they came and went - with no echoing of stiletto shoes clumping up stairs that we have experienced in other Dunedin motels at busy times of the year when people are in party moods. We would happily stay at Farrys again - value for money.

Not at all like the reviews, otherwise we would not have stayed. Room was newly decorated, good, more than adequate kitchen area and comfortable bed. The room was well serviced, very clean and the staff friendly. What else would you want from a motel at this price? George St can be noisy on Saturday night, with students returning from holidays. If you want complete quiet, find a place in the country. Free internet is a bonus.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2009

Driving along George St. looking for a motel on Melbourne Cup Day and we stopped at Farry's as they were displaying a Vacancy sign. After agreeing to the rate they then directed us to our room/apartment which was located about 150 metres away on the other side of the street. Nothing wrong with the room although it looked to be somekind of ex-gov't facility that had been converted into accommodation. Quite spacious, good bed and no complaints although access to the place was a little weird. You would never find it without clear directions. A pleasant enough experience. I suspect there are better places to stay.

FarrysMotel, Manager at George Street Motel Apartments, responded to this review, 7 December 2009
We ensure that every arriving guest with a booking for those particular apartments is personally directed to them. We are sorry to hear that you found the access a little strange, however we find that the access to those apartments gives them better privacy from the street and provides excellent car parking facilities.
We are happy to learn that you found the apartment spacious and that the bed was comfortable and thank you for your comments, we are always endeavouring to enhance the experience of guests staying with us.
