Arrived for a two night stay and met by a cheery gentleman whose first job after greeting us was to explain the area, where things were and where one could eat. Booking in what's that? Totally insignificant! We were directed to our studio room on the 1st floor no5. The room contained bed, table and two chairs, TV, fridge, microwave,...

Don't know how many times I've stayed here whilst the children were at Otago University but always consistent, with hospitable hosts . Just good, clean and comfortable and a good location away from the madding crowd.

After a long day driving, it was lovely to arrive to a welcoming, friendly, clean, well appointed apartment. We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment which our boys (teens) loved the upstairs apartment to themselves. Clean furnishings, fresh milk upon arrival and plunger coffee. Lovely. Nice gardens, fresh white fluffy towels and crispy white linen is perfect. Our sons iphone...

What a find. Will be our regular for Dunedin trips in future. Everything you need and nothing you don't. Wifi, sky, clean, gorgeous furnishings. Very well priced. We had executive with spa bath - $50 cheaper than our other quotes. Highly recommend.

Located on the main shopping road very handy to every thing. Very clean tidy motel. Manager very helpful and friendly. Large units with modern fittings. Only fault I could find was the floor sited door stopper in the bathroom tripped you up at times. Great value for the price. Would we stay here again? YES.

By the time we reached Dunedin we had already been travelling for 13 days and had racked up over 2500 km in driving. This was the shower we had been dreaming of after staying in lots of different motels and hotels. The room was spacious. Breakfast was provided which was a nice unexpected touch. The owner was really helpful and...

From the outside you wouldn't necessarily think this was a motel. It feels more like a bunch of houses; with only a small number of units in each building it was really quiet and tranquil. 858 proved to be an excellent location to base ourselves to explore Dunedin and the surrounding area. It's 20 minutes walk on level ground from...

Wonderful architecturally designed motel. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the friendliness and helpful advice provided by the owner/managers. The room was nicely furnished with 2 television screens and a great selection of channels for a change. We were handed fresh milk - thank you!! on our arrival. The decor was contemporary and the rooms were clean...

We stayed here (Mum and two sons 15 and 10) in a lovely executive 1 bedroom (#10) with separate living and small kitchen. The place is immaculate and was very comfortable for our 4 night stay. The university is close (5ish mins walk) and the centre of town a brisk 10min walk. There are buses going up and down George...
