Dunedin Palms Motel
Ranked #14 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The Dunedin Palms Motel puts many hotels to shame. This is not your typical motel.

The rooms are finished to a high standard with big comfy beds.

The location is just on the fringes of the CBD - a two minute walk to the Casino and about five - ten minute walk to the Octagon.

The spa bath was a welcome bonus.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are away from the road.

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 :)
