“Great accommodation and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

This is a lovely motel. Very clean and roomy - in a quiet location but close to the downtown and the Cadbury Factory. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Dunedin. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly.

Stayed in a 2 bed room. Was quiet, comfortable and sooo clean!! Kids were too tired to go out by the time we got there so we even managed to get pizzas delivered to the room! Was a bit out of town but we chose this motel as it was near to the gym where we were attending a competition.

We had travelled extensively around the South Island of NZ and stayed in many motels and this one would have to be the best we stayed in. Spacious living area for the four of us (two children). Lovely modern décor and excellent location. The Managers were very nice and friendly and always very accommodating. Some of the little touches that others didn't offer like DVD's available, magazines to read, make-up wipes etc really made this property a stand out. Will definitely stay here again.

This was our first taste of New Zealand hospitality and was very impressed. The manageress who greeted us was really lovely and could not be more helpful. The accommodation from the outside looks quite basic but the rooms are gorgeous. Extremely clean, warm (it was June) and cosy, well-appointed and spacious for the four of us. We only stayed overnight but I could not fault any aspect of this motel - would highly recommend.

Went there with my husband and three children under five for some r and r away from home, and was made to feel like pig and a bad parent from the moteliers wife, before we had even checked out of the motel!! She was concened about pathetic things like a pen mark she could not find, and a bent $5 whisk, the cleaner would not vacum it, as I had to, and we were not even given toliet paper. We paid over 700 dollars for three nights and would not go back again to be threated like that again.

adrianmotel, Owner at Adrian Motel, responded to this review, 10 July 2013
At Adrian Motel we take pride in our rooms and present them to a high standard for all of our guests to enjoy.
We have had numerous families stay here which have thoroughly enjoyed their stay, and we have never had a problem with their rooms.
We service on a daily basis to make our guest's rooms as tidy and comfortable as possible for them whilst staying with us.
Unfortunately the state this room was found in, upon servicing, on the 1st day, was totally appauling and disgraceful, our staff were unable to enter the room with their trolleys to even start cleaning. Our staff, who have worked here for 5 years, had never seen anything like this before.
This person clearly had no respect for our rooms, and did no appreciate when we raised our concerns about the state of her room.
This problem was isolated to the guest herself making her stay negative due to her own actions.

Apart from suggesting you try to avoid room 17 which is right on the road. This is a great motel. Clean, spacious, good water pressure, and well kitted out. very comfortable and warm. Hosts are very friendly and accomodating. It's only a 5-10 minute drive from the center of the city - very easy to find. Nice pub just around the corner and close to St Clair and St Kilda beaches. Room 17 is right next to the road and while the fence and hedge does block a good chunk of the road noise you do get the occassional boy racer heading up the road on a Friday night. Didn't stress us too much.. But if I wasa booking again would ask to avoid that room. Outside of that would go back anytime we're back in Dunners.

Room Tip: See above would try to avoid room 17 if possible
