Good location, clean and bright
Hotel is in a great location and the owner was lovely. Easy walk to town for food and shopping, or to the university. We were in a downstairs room and could hear when people walked about in the room above us but the size of the room was great, it was really clean and light. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all the utensils etc that you might need Would love to see recycling offered - from what I could see there was no option for this

Good location, however the room we had was looking a little tired. Needs so work done on maintenance etc.

Clean, spacious but dated.
Staff were nice and welcoming. The rooms were spacious, light and sunny. The bathroom and kitchen were quite dated and the shower didn't drain properly.

I found the staff very helpful and friendly. My room was nice and clean, bed was comfortable,my only grip is the couch was very uncomfortable, it sagged and smelt bad, it smelt like someone sprayed it with something to mask another smell. Everything else looked like it had recently had an overhaul.

Short stopover
Hotel position not as close to town as advertised, floor in bathroom just laminated with some paper done in a bad welly way. Air conditioning just turned itself off during the night and we were sitting in the cold as it did not unsuitable for anyone with disability
Inge, au2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
The apartment was spacious but dark, bottom floor far corner, and basic.There wasn’t much interaction with management which was fine. It was nice to get a phone call regarding check-in. I had made the booking online and was out of range for confirmation email so hadn’t noticed there’s no late check in.

A gem in Dunedin
A quick two day trip to Dunedin. After a long road trip, a cheerful natural smile and welcome on check in really was nice. Unsolicited advice given on what to see and do. Convenient location. If you are fed up driving and don’t want to walk 1 km into the city centre the #8 bus stops just outside the Motel.
