    Beautiful and comfy room, sparkling clean, helpful reception!”

    Motel was located right along the road from Dunedin to Royal Albatross Centre. Room was modern and tastefully furnished. We stayed in a studio with a little balcony that would have been ideal for stargazing if the weather had been a little warmer! Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended!

    Clean, bright, and helpful”

    We really enjoyed our two nights here. Tastefully decorated Studio 2 has a great view of the water and warm afternoon sun. Jo was very helpful in suggesting where to view penguins and take walks. The laundry area is available from 2 PM - 7 PM at no cost. The water pressure was wonderful.

    Excellent”

    Pros: well maintained, good self catering facility, reasonable value for money in an expensive market. Cons: a bit far from the town. Units à bit haphazardly placed on property. Not a problem bit was slightly off-putting for a place calling itself an escape.

    Dunedin? Definitely Otago Penisular!”

    Located in a quite peaceful area with amazing mountain and beach view from the room. As what posted by the travellers, the lady operating the place was very helpful indeed. She even helped to call up the Royal Albatross Centre to check on the timing for the penguin viewing tour. Even gave us a handy map and some great tips on the day of departure. The free internet quota for 2 days was 2GB which I think is sufficient. Will definitely come back as a happy guest!

    A Happy Accident”

    We spent three nights in the small village of Portobello, located about twenty minutes from Dunedin. We might have missed some interesting and memorable experiences had we chosen differently. Our hosts were welcoming and the accommodation very comfortable. We highly recommend this lodging.

    The location was wonderful with quite a view. It was out of the hub-bub of Dunedin and near some very private beaches off the beaten path. We were also close to the Albatross Center.. Keith and Sue could not have been more accommodating and personable If we ever return to New Zealand we would be sure to come back. Jim and Barb
