Motel on York
Ranked #21 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Thankfully, in a very hilly town, this place is near the bottom of the hills and a stone's throw from the CBD. Numerous restaurants nearby. Clean, well appointed business style place. Rooms have all hotel amenities inc laundry facilities and ironing board. Complete kitchen and utensils. This includes the beverage supplies for the morning, including proper milk. Note a cold breakfast can be arranged and it will be delivered to your room the night before. Easy on site parking. This place is popular with the business clientele. Eoin, the owner is knowledgeable about the area and very helpful. You could not ask for a better place. Limited wheelchair access. The value is so far the best we have encountered in NZ.

Room Tip: Reservations are suggested.

Don't get me wrong this is a nice complex but I am not sure how it is a 5 star property. The units are nice, clean and not bad for size. However they were not double glazed so there was a bit of noise from outside. There was only 1 spare blanket for 3 beds and it was a cool night. Sure there was a heater but do not like sleeping with it on. They had a microwave but no jug or bowl suitable to use in it. So you really couldn't cook anything. I would stay here again but if you are basing your decision solely on a 5 star rating you may be dissapointed. Must say the hosts were great also.

Stayed: October 2013

I stayed at the Motel on York in Dunedin for two nights last week - very convenient location (as I was working in the City) and the motel was super clean!

I hadn't stayed there before however iot will be my motel of choice in the future - and the tariff was very good value.

One night stay only although room very spacious, staff friendly and bed very comfortable. Would stay again when next in Dunedin. A little traffic noise in my front room although was so tired it didn't interrupt my sleep. Recommended

Room Tip: Request a room away from York St which would be a bit quieter

I would not hesitate to recommend this motel. Clean, modern, good service and friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help. Little things like fresh milk instead of UHT, and an excellent guest information folder really put the finishing touch on a pleasant stay. To top it off they were happy to post back my glasses that I had left behind, at no extra cost. I would definitely stay here again.

Clean, modern and comfortable with spacious rooms and kitchen facilities (I stayed in #6) Lower floor has shared patio area which was lovely to sit out on, upstairs rooms have individual balconies. Decor spot on. Free internet access - always a plus. Easy walking distance to restaurants and plenty of parking a the motel. Only minor point was the size of the shower would prefer a square base and not a corner shower which can be a bit tight for room, lovely to have under floor heating in the bathroom though.

After consulting friends and looking at TripAdvisor, we settled on Motel on York partly because of its proximity to the center of the city without being directly in the midst of all the noise and activity. We were very pleased with our choice. It was comfortable, clean, and well appointed. The studio was perhaps a little smaller than other rooms we have stayed in recently, but that was not really a problem. Just wish the wifi allowance was a little more generous but, considering some places still charge for wifi and we knew the free allowance was limited, it's hard to complain. We're just not used to watching our consumption quite so carefully! We were pleased with the way the staff dealt with our having exceeded the limit -- they could have dug their heels in, but were willing to compromise. Perhaps next time we will opt for a place with a more generous wifi plan? All things considered, though, we really enjoyed our stay at this motel. I appreciate the efforts to make the business as green as practical and the fact that the whole establishment is smoke free. The new owners (managers?) were very pleasant and professional, and I expect they will continue to have success running this establishment. We were grateful they allowed us keep our car parked at the motel after we had checked out, while we met friends at the Otago Farmers Market. Gestures like that do make a difference!

Room Tip: We had a studio. It was very convenient to the car park -- helpful if quite a lot of luggage needs...
