“Clean modern but away from town center”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

Newer motel that was okay for two nights. It has a nice kitchenette. There is a big grocery store across the street. Must have a car as it is about 5 miles from town center/Octogon, out near the big box stores and car dealerships. If you go away from town the other way, hotel is close to beaches. Free DVD movies in the lobby.

I stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks on business. The managers are extremely friendly and helpful and all facilities worked fine. There is a rich library of DVDs you can borrow for free, the wifi works well. Slight downer (for those staying long) is the lack of cooking facilities beyond microwave and toaster. Also it at the end of a characterless strip of car yards and big box shops, but my work was up at Larnach Castle so it was very well sited for that and St Clair.

Had reason to visit Dunedin often over the last 6 months and found a wonderful Motel with great service just 5 minutes from the center of Dunedin. With a little practice, everything is 5min from this hotel. Up to Larnachs Castle, off to the Beach, head out on a lovely winding road. This Motel is excellent, really helpful owners, rooms are clean, well appointed and maintained. I would recommend this place to friends

A friend and I booked a nights accommodation here last weekend. We were warmly welcomed to the address and shown promptly to our room by the motelier. The studio room had everything necessary (and a few extras) for a good stay - wall mounted flatscreen tv, comfie beds, coffee and tea making facilities, and a fridge. The furnishings were modern and tasteful, and the double glazed door and window were successful in blocking out all but the loudest noises.
We found the location to be excellent as I was competing in a bike race on the Peninsula, and this was the closest hotel to both the area and town. It was just a short drive to Dunedin Central, and a short walk to the nearby Countdown grocery store, Couplands bakery, McDs, BK, and a myriad of petrol stations. Also very close to the St Kilda/ St Clair beach areas.
An added bonus for me was the presence of "Max", the hotel dog. The coolest poodle on the block!!!

Room Tip: We had a downstairs south facing room, which while lovely, appeared to be just a tad dark, due to th...

We have stayed at 555 On Bayview four times in the last six months. Every visit has been better than the last.

The new rooms are flawless with all the creature comforts, including king size bed, modern kitchenette, spacious bathroom, and large flat screen TV and DVD. Double glazed windows and sliding door keep the rooms warm in winter, cool in summer, and whisper quiet from outside noise. The onsite car parking is easy and safe, and the location is close to all destinations – city, beach and country. Additional amenities include new business/meeting rooms, wireless internet access, and immaculately clean laundry facilities.

The service is second to none. Staff are friendly, fun and efficient, and always more than happy to help in any way they can. And hosts, Richard and Sue, are simply delightful. Everything they do is professional with a personal touch, and they always go above and beyond to provide the most comfortable and enjoyable stay. From your first enquiry to your final check out, nothing is too much trouble, and they treat every guest like the most important one. They also know Dunedin inside out and can point you in the right direction.

555 On Bayview is a home away from home for business and holiday travellers alike. It offers outstanding quality, service and value, and is easily the best accommodation in Dunedin. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Let Richard and Sue know the purpose of your trip (business, holiday, family, couple, etc.) and they...

I travel the South Island every week in my job. A friendly greeting and a comfortable bed are important. The hosts are very helpful and always smiling. The rooms are new and modern and very comfortable (love the new big flat screen tv). I look forward to my visits to Dunedin and 555. Handy to town and the beach. Well done.

We arrived on Xmas eve and stayed at the Best Western in Dunedin for few nights, and it was new and clean, our hosts were so friendly, produced a plate of goodies on Xmas day for us and let us leave the car onsite while we went off for 5 days on a cycle trip.
The location is not in the city centre a cab ride approx $13-$15, but you have all the major take aways around you, KFC, MacDonalds, Burger King, a super market and garage across the road. Dunedin city is just lovely and we will definitely return one day and will stay again at the Best Western.
We hope you enjoy your stay as we did ours.

Room Tip: Our room faced the main road and was upstairs but they have double glazing we heard minimal noise.
