Reviewed 20 December 2011

My owners stayed here for one night at the end of a long and fun road trip. When they did get to the motel they were so pleased, there was so much space and everything was clean and ready for them to chillax before the long drive home back to me. They said I could have stayed too so maybe I'll get to meet the really friendly lady human who gave owner mum the key, she was friendly and helpful owner mum says. She gave them milk for a cup of tea, she sounds nice. They have 2 cats who I would like to make friends with, owner mum says they were friendly too. Owner mum used the 1/2 hr free interweb, owner dad got some more from the office which cost a few small monies. It was a good walk into the city centre, I would not like it, I would prefer to go the other way to the park and botanical gardens which is closer, so I would be very happy here.
Thank you Garden Motel, my owners were well rested and had a safe jouney home with their friends thanks to your lovely comfy beds.

The motel is in North Dunedin - too far to walk to the city centre, but not difficult by car. We had a two-bedroom unit which was completely satisfactory. It had a full kitchen including an oven.

We had a one bedroom unit then swapped to a two bedroom unit, both were very clean, comfortable and very pleasant. Very convenient situation, and a dear little cat who came to visit. Friendly owners who were very helpful. Would happily recommend staying here.

Stayed overnight and were impressed by the quality of this motel especially for the price. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable, and the location was excellent. We will be back on our next visit to Dunedin.

We have just spent 2 weeks at the Garden Motel and it was a good choice (thanks to reviews on TA). Clean, well laid out, very quiet (considering the location) and helpful owners. I can't fault this place and its pet friendly too, keep up the good work :-)

Clean, warm, spacious and very good rate for a family apartment. Comfortable beds. I fractured my ankle skiing and when my ground transport to the local airport was 50 minutes late, Chris the manager/owner offered to drive me.

This is by far the best motel apartment in south island. Most of them are tired looking though adequate.
