As a night before decision we decided to travel over to Dunedin and from the available choice left on the hotel search sites was attracted to this accommodation from the look of the travellers photos and the free parking offer on TA. The photos do represent the room so you know what to expect. On arrival there seemed to be quite a lot of parking space around the grounds anyway so that offer maybe was superfluous. But seriously when booking city centre accomodation there can be the hassle/additional parking cost considerations. The fact that the rooms looked/are ok and we could drive over and park/you can - won us over.
Basic cooking ie MWave and toaster/kettle only but plates, cutlery etc fridge are here., unlimited internet which remembers your login device, TV & dvd/stonking Philips TV picture quality, free dvd library at reception,a spa bath that was the only one on our trip that had enough power to work!, as additional features made it a good deal.
The motel is not city centre though. By car its only a few minutes there though and I am sure if you know where to park that would be fine. We chose to go in by bus (stop around the corner and in daytime every 20min at $2.70 adult fare). Just be aware that nighttime services are pretty infrequent. We found the 27 from the Octagon (M-F) did bring us back at the bottom of Anderson BAyview road so we had a short walk too back to the motel. In retrospect we should have driven in and payed for street parking. However the positive side of its position is that its on the SE of town and therefore at the base of the Ortago Penisula area for the exploration of the nature activities which turned out to be (another) highlight day of our NZ tour.
If you get a good deal then well worth considering.
