Good things happening here!”

I've stayed at the Sahara a few times over the years. Usually with friends, this time solo. It's a great location, walkable to town, yet has on-site parking which makes it easier for trips further away. New owners this year who have been doing a major overhaul during Covid. Big changes within the guesthouse already and breakfast is back. The tell me the motel rooms at the back are next. Whilst tired, they have always been comfortable. This time I was in a Delux studio, which was extremely comfortable and has Sky TV including movies and a well equipped kitchen. (Microwave and two plate hob for cooking). Future plans include another space that will be suitable for a group of up to 8 they tell me, so keep an eye out for that. The new owners are very friendly and welcoming and I wish them every success. I will certainly be back again!

Great place to stay”

Ok it's not the newest place in Dunedin. But you get no complaints from us. If you want some where central, close to restaurants, easy to drive to the peninsular, and a short walk to town this is it. Helpful staff, clean rooms which are a bit dated, we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Would be my first port of call next time in Dunedin. Value for money here.

Disappointed Guest”

I only have one day stay in Dunedin. i arrived at 1230. Sahara is quite far from the bus station. so they should consider picking up guest from the bus station. They should also be able to organize trip to places of interest. I had to request for a heater in my room as it was cold. It should be provided without me asking for it.

Nice motel”

This motel is old building but very well maintain. I love the interior design. The facilities was fantastic. They provide free coffee, tea and chocolate drink. Would recommend this motel.
