“nice modern room in a great location!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

We spent one evening here and found the room delightful. It's a great modern room with a balcony and has plenty of space with a kitchenette. It's just about a street away from Speights alehouse which was delicious for dinner and about a 5 to 8 minute walk from the octagon. There is also free parking in the lot. We would recommend it.

This is far more than your average motel. Beautiful modern rooms, well equipped with new kitchenette and comfy bed. The value is excellent considering the rooms and location - situated in the heart of Dunedin. It should be called a boutique motel or a hotel.

We stayed two nights and loved The Palms. Really friendly management, well appointed rooms, good wifi connection and so handy to the shops and cafés.

Modern room with a lovely bathroom, nice bedding and a small kitchenette. The motel is handy to the Casino and shopping.

In a great location, walking distance to the octagon. Room was well decorated and spotlessly clean. We had a very comfortable stay, toasty warm in cold Dunedin. Karen was a great host, with advice for places to eat and drink. We will definitely recommend.

We stayed here for one night but would have happily stayed longer. We were greeted with a warm welcome and the owner kindly carried our bags up the stairs which was a first in our whole 3 weeks of staying in motels. The rooms were very flash, modern and clean and the location of the motel is excellent - walking distance from town. Shower pressure could have done with being a bit better but that's just nit picking now!

This lovely hotel situated close to the centre of the city. We loved the separate bedroom and the comfortable lounge area....
Wifi was strong and reliable.
The only downfall was it was noisy on the top floor of the hotel....bear in mind though that this is a university town and there are lots of students :)

We recently stayed here as part of our 6 week tour of the South Island. The accommodation is outstanding. The location is very good, just a short walk down the hill to the city centre. The owner was very helpful, he found out for me that the Six Nations Rugby was on Sky Sports which was available on the TV. I got up at 3 am to watch it in the living room, whilst my husband was left undisturbed in the bedroom. We lost!

We stayed in 14 motels/hotels/B&Bs during our trip and this motel this was by far the best. Highly recommended.
