        Big room comfortable bed convenience store across the road short walk to shops and restaurants. We were on the top floor so if you have alot of luggage or big heavy bags this is not for you as there is no elevator. It's hard to get a wifi signal on the top floor so use your own data is easier.

        The location of the motel is their main strength. It situated right in the city and within walking distance to restaurants and major attractions. The furnishing is a little old and the set up of the room is open concept. Staff is helpful.

        Reasonable price, relatively good location, spacious

        It was so-so, okay for the price I guess. The fixtures and carpet in the motel is due for a change. They are old and tired looking. The shower know is also a bit of a challenge to work. Unlikely that I would stay there again as the Reception did not even make us feel welcomed. It was very transactional. Cut and dry.

        Adequate parking, warm room, quality linen, crokery and appliances.

        It was ideal as we were in Dunedin for a grandaughter's graduation from Otago University two blocks away. Only niggle was some light bulbs out and no spares available. We would definitely use it again if the occasion ever arose.

        Price, location, staff

        Due to an illness in the family it ended up being me and my three young boys spending two nights in Dunedin alone. The accommodation and location were great though and made the holiday easy and enjoyable. The staff were very helpful and very nice when we had a bit of an incident with a hot chocolate and the carpet. The only thing I didn't like was that the water in the tap was extremely hot and could've been dangerous with the kids.

        Great location and lovely hotel”

        Loft was a hit with the children; motel was also very conveniently located and easy to find.

        In general, the motel was great. Free wireless internet was provided but sometimes the same userid/account was given to more than one guest resulting in conflicts and disconnections. I understand that the owner is trying to fully utilize the usage of each account, but he should work out a better way. It was extremely annoying to be disconnected and having to reconnect again repeatedly, and I'm sure the other guest was facing the annoyance as I was.

        absolutely delightful”

        Spacious living area; loft bedroom; large spa

        everywhere i usually stay in dunedin was booked out and was therefore "forced" into seeking accommodation with a higher price tag than i usually do. given this, i then expected more than what i usually receive, and i was not at all disappointed. in fact, i would very definitely return again, despite a higher than normal (for me) tariff. speaking of tariff, however, do check very carefully what you are being actually charged against what the motel is offering. i found the agency through which i booked (on line), had misquoted the actual tariff by 50%, so i spent a great deal more than was expected. despite the expense, the motel is absolute value for money, particularly if you get an upstairs spa studio. when i first arrived, the roadside sign announced it as an “econo lodge”. having stayed in many of these while travelling in the united states, the room (which is actually a series of rooms) was very well furnished with a leather lounge suite (all recliners), very stylish table and chairs, mobile television set and queen size bed (amongst other items). adding to the unique atmosphere was a loft bedroom (a first (and wonderful) experience for me). the unit also had a balcony, as well as a separate bathroom and toilet. the bathroom (which is separated from the toilet has an enormous spa bath, from which you can soak and watch television at the same time. now that (for me anyway) is luxury. the guest information booklet is also very informative. there is a 24 hour general supplies shop right across the road, but dunedin’s main shopping centre is a mere 10 minutes’ walk away, where retail outlets and restaurants abound. it may take a great deal longer, therefore, than ten minutes to reach the city centre given the many diversions you are likely to make.
