Very close to Dunedin's central Octagon but quiet (I did have a room away from the street). Friendly, helpful management. The room was large, clean and comfortable and in my case had a small outdoor garden. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location 300m from CBD. Super comfortable beds and the kitchen was perfect for preparing our own meals. Very very clean.

8/10 Very good

Friendly staff that are very helpful. Room was tidy and clean. Starting to show age a wee bit though. Outdoor areas need some TLC with the weeds. Usually stay here in Dunedin as its pretty close to everything and is reasonably quiet from road noise and night life

10/10 Exceptional

The room we had probably the best motel /hotel room we have stayed in. Quite some thought has been taken in the design processed and showed. The attention to detail was exemplified in other way. For instance the motel was fully booked with no parking available on Saturday night. However Motel on York were able to provide off-site parking at business across the road. It was also no problem to provide secure luggage storage on our last day. Highly recommend.

Property was clean and tidy. BUT nearly impossible to lock and unlock door (manager had a big problem when he showed us the room). Bathroom heater did not work first night, but did work next night. Extract fan in bathroom kept going all night
