Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    We visited Dunedin as a large family group booking a studio unit and a 2 bedroom unit, which was very spacious, tidy and modernised. We had a very comfortable stay.

    Was surprised they didn't supply shampoo, but this wasn't a big issue at all.

  • Older travelers

    Great to have a separate bedroom from the living quarters in this motel. Very thoughtful layout. The self-serve laundry was great. This was the perfect spot to explore the Otago Peninsula as well as Dunedin itself. Also close to Fitzroy hotel On the Park which is the best value pub meal I have ever seen.

  • Couple

    The owner Peter was very kind and helpful. We forgot to bring our drivers license to nz and had to travel by bus. He came into town to pick us up. We stayed in the Jade room, which as spacious and comfortable. Just wished it had a desk. The location is better if you have a car. We didn't have a car, but still walked (about 20-30 min) to the ocean front and it was beautiful, even in the rain.

    If you are not traveling by car, it can be difficult to reach.

  • Couple

    Large room and very helpful and friendly staff

    Hot water ran out quickly

  • Older travelers

    Everything as per the website including good free broadband internet connection. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

  • Older travelers

    We were in the Jade room and it was very quiet and we were separate to other part

  • Older travelers

    Hosts were very accommodating, room was large and comfortable, parking just outside door

    no problems

  • Group of friends

    Motel was quiet, close to Dunedin to access city activities but far enough away for peace & quiet

    Whilst rooms were clean & functional, they could possibly benefit from decor update. But still fab value for money even though decor is a little dated

  • Family with children

    We enjoyed the friendly staff and the well-equipped kitchen. It was clean and well maintained and the beds were comfortable. We were able to get internet wifi from the unit and they even supply a laptop if you've forgotten yours which was very handy.

  • Couple

    Clean rooms, kitchenette with all equipment, free wireless internet, just between city and otago

  • Older travelers

    Excellent range of self catering facilities and equipment made it easy to cook what we wanted , do washing and use internet free

    Looking a bit shappy but update in pipeline

  • Group of friends

    easy reachable ex town and ex suburb - free wifi

    nice stay - free paper appreciated

  • Older travelers

    Nice people ,helpful ,good location ,nice quiet at night

    I did not enjoy standing on cold floor in bathroom or toilet when using these facilities ,during the night or when showering ,suggestion a small mat would rectify this

  • Older travelers

    when I made the booking did I made a payment. NZD 285. from my c/card ?

  • Family with children

    The motel unit we had comfortably fitted our family of 7 persons - 4 adults and 3 young children. The unit is clean, quiet and reasonably equipped for our one night stay. The motel location is good, situated at the entrance to the Otago Peninsula, away from the city centre and yet close to food outlets. It exceeded our expectation. Good value for money!
