So much to do and see in and around Dunedin.
Loved our visit to Dunedin, unfortunately did not allow enough time to see everything I wanted to see and do. Took my 2 11yr old grandchildren and the loved the hot pools and walking up the steepest street.
Diane, nz2 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Friendly check-in and easily walk into town. Speights brewery just round the corner which was a bonus
Andy, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good location.
Nice studio room close to the centre of town. The front of the motel faced a main road so our room heard a lot of traffic noise late into the night. If you are a light sleeper then this might not be the place for you. Otherwise it’s close to town, comfortable and convenient.

Good 6.0
Noisy but OK in every other way.
We had a 2nd floor corner unit on the Main Street. The room was very warm and so we had to open ALL windows to cool the place down as well as opening up the door. It was simply too noisy with the traffic just outside the room. Perhaps had we been away from the Street our experience would have been different. Word to the wise....Canadians have just come out of the deep freeze and need the windows open, so give them a quiet room.
Veronica, ca2 night family trip

Room was very basic. It was clean but a little run down.
