“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Nice, large room that was comfortable and warm. Equipped with all of the necessary amenities, and good internet. Motel is in an excellent location, short walk from the centre of town and the university. Would recommend.

Largish lounge with fully equipped kitchenette. Table and chairs to eat at and settee and two armchairs and large TV. Large bathroom that included separate shower and spa bath. Bedroom a good size with lovely bedding. All very clean. We stayed in upstairs room, no views but as only one night ok. Easy walk to restaurants / shops. Can recommend The Fish Hook fish & chip, excellent fish and nicely cooked, either battered, grilled or crumbed.

Free internet access in the room. Room recently refurbished by look of all furniture / decor. Very good for this type of accommodation. Parking right outside. Helpful receptionist.

I love how Tripadvisor reviewers take a little time to wrap together a few kind words. We really appreciate your comments. Come back soon, Dunedin has a lot to offer. We have been in Dunedin for ten years, but are new to the motel, and we can always find something “new” around town to explore. Thanks again.

The unit we stayed in had new carpet and was very clean. It was spacious and provided everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the unit was quiet. We liked having the stovetop as well as the microwave. We had plenty of bedding and the heating was good. If we were out in the afternoon/evening when we arrived back we would find the unit warm and cosy because the heaters had been turned on for us.
We were able to walk to most places we wanted to but there was also a bus stop right at the door in George Street.
The staff were really friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for two nights in May 2014. Staff were very friendly and helpful, room was quiet and clean, and kitchenette was well-stocked with everything we needed to do our own cooking (including fresh milk in the fridge!). Location is quite good--it's at the end of George St. (main road through the campus end of town with plenty of shops, restaurants, and groceries nearby).

Room Tip: We had a room right on George St. and weren't bothered at all by street noise.

Apartment had 4 separate rooms - lounge/kitchen, bedroom, shower, toilet. Plenty of room. Very helpful and accommodating staff. Hotel is close to hospital, shops and restaurants - all within walking distance. Only one small (would be significant in winter) problem was heaters were not adequate. Would definitely stay again.

Thanks Karen. Yes Dunedin is unforgiving in winter. We have purchased a stack of new 2kW and 1.5kW heaters and we will be installing them, perhaps a little quicker now after your helpful nudge, over the next few weekends. It is interesting how the bathroom design with separate rooms (toilet / shower) has cycled around and become new again! Much appreciated. Matt

We arrived at Amross Motel this afternoon after a very cold motorbike ride from Invercargill. We were met by Pat who couldn't have been more welcoming. Rooms were immaculate and Pat even popped in to give us an extra key so we could leave the heater on while we went out for tea to make sure the rooms were warm! She was amazing! Would recommend and definitely come back to stay :)

Stayed here for weekend in Dunedin. Motel is centrally located and walking distance to Octagon. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Surprisingly quiet for a motel so centrally located. Very well equipped kitchen if you were self-catering. Owners were very friendly and helpful and really appreciated the heater being on in our room when we got there late after a long drive. Would happily stay there again

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back are very quiet
