The Motel facilities and staff were fantastic.
After travelling down from Christchurch for a long weekend in Dunedin with the family we were welcomed by the friendly staff, swiftly checked in and shown to our room.
We had a 2 bedroom unit, one room with a queen bed the other with 2 singles. It was clean, welcoming and had everything you would expect. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of blankets etc to hand for those extra cold nights. We didn't need them even though the nights we were in Dunedin were cold as the rooms are well heated.
Parking was available immediately outside the room.
The Motel is located on the peninsular where access to gorgeous beaches, fantastic views and wildlife reserves are close by. All within a quick drive of the city centre.
Next time we are in Dunedin overnight we will definitely stay here.
The whole family loved it!
