We chose to stay at Trinity Court as it is just one block away from Dunedin's fencing club where this year's U15 & U17 Nationals were being held.
The accomodation was 'cheap and cheerful' and of course very conveniently located from our point of view: 2 minutes to the tournament venue and about 10 minutes stroll to the Octagon. It has a large lounge/dining room at the end of the motel, which would be useful for larger groups wanting to eat together.
The manager was really helpful - extra milk and a roll of duct tape we needed to prepare foils for the competition appeared in our room after I asked him where I could get some!
The first night was very quiet, the next two less so as the motel filled with lots of other fencers. The walls are not sound-proof.
The motel offers breakfast, although we choose to make our own or eat at the great cafe beside the motel. Lone Star is just across the road for evening meals and there's a great takeaway pizza place - Momma Mia Pizza - 5 minutes walk away at 74 Crawford St (it doesn't do deliveries). A good selection of both vegetarian and meatlovers pizzas.
