    This motel is great, friendly owners, clean and a great views. Easy access just off the main road with dinning options nearby. We have also enjoyed the Penguin and Albatross projects. A bit of a drive from Dunedin CBD but well worth it.

    Very cute, comfortable cottage overlooking the bay on Otago Peninsula--clean and cozy! It's a winding drive from Dunedin but worth it! Sue was so friendly and helpful! Right down the road is a penguin/albatross sanctuary--this is the place to stay if you are headed there!...More

    We loved the motel - the ambience, the cleanliness and the friendly smiles of the hosts! We had arrived late from our penguin tour and our room was already prepared and heated up - it gave us a warm feel during the cold day.
