Lake Dunstan Motel

Reviewed 22 February 2012

We spent two nights here -- lovely setting, surrounded by golden hills, next to a golf course, with beautifully tended flowers. We got a very warm welcome -- the owners are friendly and helpful. Our room was immaculately clean, quiet, very comfortable beds. Nice small patio out front with table and chairs. Within easy walking distance to the local mall with several dining options, liquor store nearby. And a short drive to the wineries of the Central Otago. We would highly recommend the Lake Dunstan Motel.

We were shown to our motel unit, which was an awesome welcome as no other venue around the south island greeted us in this manner. We were given muffins (nice touch) and the motel was nice and handy to the mall for dining out. The motel itself was nice and quiet, very modern up to date furnishings, gardens etc, recommend to anyone that wants an awesome experience.

Room Tip: They are all good

We were welcomed by the owners who were only to happy to provide information and suggestions on how we might entertain ourselves. The motel is located nice and close to the main town centre and offers a BBQ among the usual motel type facilities. The place was very tidy and is going for the green image which we like. Great value for money, highly recommended.

We have just spent 4 days in this motel in Cromwell. This is a well maintained clean motel in a quiet, garden location overlooking the golf course. The owners were friendly and helpful.The motel is only a 5 minute walk away from the town centre with its shops and supermarket. We had a lovely time in Cromwell which is central to all the holiday destinations in Central Otago.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the golf course have a wonderful garden outlook.

We are just coming to the end of a two-week tour of the South Island and Lake Dunstan Motel was by far the best accommodation we had on the whole trip, especially as it followed a really disappointing over-priced experience at a motel in Haast.

When they said "Best room in the house", Bob & Laurel weren't exaggerating, We were given a lovely clean, airy room with a fantastic view over a beautifully maintained golf course to the mountains. The tasty home=made muffins were a wonderful surprise welcome.

The hosts were friendly and knowledgeable about local facilities. The motel had attractive gardens and a child-friendly play area.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this motel and its owners to anyone visiting Cromwell and the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Unit 13 - Sunny corner unit.

Lovely units with well kept gardens everything is immaculate. The golf course is a step away and 5 minutes to Cromwell shops on foot. All the major attractions around Central Otago are easily accessible so this is the perfect base for Alexandra, Wanaka, Queenstown and even a trip over to the West Coast. Wouldn't hesitate to come back for a holiday here on our next trip south.

Welcoming room (we parked our motorcycle right up to door) surrounded by an array of multicolored flowers with white sheer curtains flowing in the mountain breeze. Owners were gracious and helpful. We have good memories of our stay.
