“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

A great place to stay; the staff are friendly and very helpful - nothing a problem; they were warm and welcoming; unit was neat and tidy; bed was comfortable; breakfast was just right - each day; and always delivered when we asked. Location is excellent; handy to everything;supermarket right across the road; and handy to eating places. We would definitely recommend and would stay again.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our journey across the South Island. Room was very spacious and clean. The complex was very quiet and the owners quite helpful with directions etc.a Grocery store and restaurants were within walking distance. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Bayview? The street is called Bayview - but there's no view of a bay! There's a BP filling station across the street, a CountDown supermarket in a different direction, a flower shop nearby, all quite convenient but the environment is more commercial/trade estate than bayview.
The motel sits on a corner, the folks in reception are really friendly and helpful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is also on the route from the City Centre to the Otago peninsular which has a very scenic drive around it which leads to the Royal Albatross Centre where you can see Albatross on the nest and flying around. Spectacular.
So, it's a pretty good motel, at a reasonable price, but not exciting.

Hello Peter, thanks for your review.
Regarding the name Best Western 555 on Bayview, we are situated on the corner of Bayview and Andersons Bay Rds,and all the land around us has been reclaimed, starting mainly in the 1940s and finishing in the late 1970s.
Anderson Bay Rd then followed the site of the original shoreline, so there was a 'bay- view' once. I hope that helps to understand where the name comes from.
Dunedin is an amazing small city with so much available for a tourist to see and do, and I'm pleased you enjoyed your time here.
Kind regards Sue

Lovely stay for 2 nights. Good for getting around and sightseeing. Close to city and Otago Peninsula. We were given a upgrade with king sized bed and spa. Very helpful when we had a bit of car trouble. They helped find somewhere to get a tyre fixed on a Sunday. When mentioned no vegemite on breakfast tray they found some for the next day.

A standard motel - nothing overly special apart from its a place to sleep. Room was warm and clean, reception fella friendly as needed. Had no ice trays, heater was good, pretty quiet unit, close to supermarkets and maccas, kfc etc

Had no where to stay and stumbled across this motel. The young guy on reception was really helpful and accommodating. We ended up staying two nights. Very clean, comfortable rooms throughout the unit with a little kitchenette stocked with a good supply of tea, coffee, hot chocolate. Supermarket across the road didn't close until late which was handy. Bus stop right outside for transport into city so we didn't have to drive. Quiet location & handy to the Peninsula and St Clair. Only one negative which is I think the driveway entrance to the property off the street could be wider. As I recall I don't think two cars could pass each other. That said I would definitely stay here again.
