Beechwood is beautifully positioned to walk to the city, enjoy the local vibe and restaurants and so easy to find. The place is undergoing renovations and it was managed so sensitively for current customer comfort.

I do not know how previous reviews were given. Very outdated and in need of renovation badly. Smelt old and damp. Bathroom in the era of the 50's as is kitchen. We booked the hotel by the reviews but were extremely disappointed. Reception very welcoming.

This was our best stay ever during our 3 weeks in NZ. Jo provided awesome and friendly service, ever willing to provide us assistance and extra information. Location of the motel is great, with food places nearby. Parking was good, the room was clean and tidy and comfortable and totally worth the money. Would totally recommend this place :)

We stayed in a 2-room unit at this motel one night in January 2016. It was newly renovated and in excellent condition. The manager was very helpful. Wifi, free, worked without problem. An extra plus for the book exchange library in the room.

Could do much better. Uncomfortable bed. Everything old. Poor blinds. Lack of small personal details. Hard to tell if it was clean as carpet was so stained. Towels didn't smell fresh. However we did receive a warm welcome. Choose another hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting Dunedin for a concert at Forsyth Barr Stadium. Very conveniently located for walking to the Stadium. They're older-style motels, but very clean with everything you'd need. Nicely maintained, pleasant gardens and helpful host. No road noise, had a peaceful sleep. We enjoyed our stay.
