Affordable central Dunedin
Bathrooms and Kitchette ready for an upgrade , but a very comfy bed !! A little noises from upstairs guests and not sure if that heater would be enough on a cold Dunedin night - I would stay again and recommend

Very good 8.0
My stay was good, sadly however the students were returning to Dunedin and I did not know that the motel is surrounded by student flats, they are very noisy and messy. Nights were hard to sleep as hot and no aircon to cool room, with window open all you heard was student music, talking to each other, etc. Host was fantastic, helpful with possibilities for dinner and where to go and get around.
Amanda, nz2 night business trip

Rooms a bit tired. When the bathroom window was open the door wouldnt close. Was comfortable enough for what we needed.

Central location & pleasant stay.
Great location, can basically walk anywhere - uni, hospital, CBD & mall, supermarkets etc. Great off road parking. Soft fluffy towels, fab options for tea, coffee, hot choc, milo etc. Only thing not overly impressed with is the uncomfortable couch & single bed. Woke up with such a sore back & barely got any sleep as was unable to get comfy.
