“Pleasant surprise in Dunedin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

What a surprise to find a very clean and modern motel in such a great location in Dunedin. There seems to be many older motels in Dunedin and this is a great find. Sue and Richard are very obliging with maps and local information. I intended staying for a couple of days and ended up being there for four days - riding out Winter weather in great comfort but also enjoying the local area. I have a Great Western Rewards Card and if this property is any example I will be searching out Great Western motels regularly.

Room Tip: All rooms are modern - whether new or recently upgraded.

We were pleasantly surprised with this Motel. When trying to find accommodation we did not realise that it was graduation and a lot of places were already booked up. Luckily we rang Richard who gave us a very good price for a room for my husband, myself and daughter. Booking direct was also cheaper. The Motel is a five minute drive out of the City Centre, on quite a busy road but it was very quiet once inside the room. There was no noise at night so a good night's sleep was had by all. There was a huge range of DVDs to borrow which was great. We would certainly stay at this Motel again.

What a great place to stay! The rooms were clean, and really comfortable. Richard was so helpful recommending places to eat and things we should see and do when in Dunedin. Thanks very much, will definitely stay here again! The Motel is very close to a supermarket, money machine, and petrol station .

We were given a very warm welcome with lots of information about trips and offers to book them. The breakfast was very good value and well cooked. We were not aware of traffic yet we were conveniently placed to get into the town. Toiletries and towels were generously provided and the bed was very comfortable. You had the feeling that nothing would be too much trouble. Should anyone we know be coming from the UK to Dunedin I would have no hesitation in recommending this motel to them.

We are pleased that your trip to Dunedin was enjoyable. It is always wonderful to have International visitors stay with us and we are keen to show off what Dunedin can offer, whether it be the local wildlife on the Otago Peninsula or just recommending some good restaurants.

We stayed two nights and I would recommend this motel because they just get it right. The service is excellent, the rooms are modern and well appointed. They are also quiet, the motel is located near a reasonably busy road and it was fully booked and I wasnt bothered by road noise or other guests. It is handy to a supermarket and takeaways. I enjoyed just the little things like they didnt scrimp on towels etc or have annoying little notices everywhere. Great stay!
