Though it was not a very easy drive to the motel on Otago Peninsula, it was very worthwhile. The couples who run the motel were very friendly, which made us feel very comfortable. We were also very glad to know we can buy fresh eggs from them and we did so. They seems surprised when we said we would like to buy all the eggs :-). As Chinese people, we were also very happy to see the kitchen is very well equipped and we were even provided a rice cooker which helped us to make the best rice for dinner during the whole trip. The motel is a very good choice if you plan to spend some time visiting Otago Peninsula, which I will also strongly recommended for very beautiful beaches. But if you only want to visit the city of Dunedin, it may be too far away from the center.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Motel is set back off the main road through the little village of Portobello. The setting is peaceful and quiet. Our 4 studio rooms have lovely views over Portobello Harbour. Our 2 one-bedroom and 2 two bedroom cottages, whilst not having harbour views, are both spacious and comfortable. All the units come fully equipped for self catering although the delightful 1908 Restaurant is situated just across the road from the end of our drive. The Hotel next door has a Bistro bar, providing good food and beer and the Penguin Cafe offers hot and cold snacks and picnics. The local shop is well stocked too. The Portobello Motel is 20 minutes or less from Royal Albatrosses , sea lions, seals, penguins and many other sea and shore birds. There are some lovely walks in the area too. Bring your binoculars for wildlife watching! ... more less
