Positive Reviews

A winning location

Guests agree that the motel’s setting could not be better. According to reviews, the location is within walking distance of many of Dunedin’s centrally-based attractions.

Guests return here as friends

Owners and staff are very friendly and approachable. They are very happy to take time out to advise their guests on places to visit or the best value shops and restaurants. Guests also say they feel like they are welcomed as old friends.

Rooms are very appealing

Guests agree the accommodation is very appealing, spotlessly clean, and provides very comfortable beds. Guests note with pleasure that rooms offering balconies enjoy the beautiful city views and outdoor furniture.

Negative Reviews

Lacking the essential air conditioning

Guests state that there is a real need for air conditioning or a fan in the room. While many find opening windows or balcony doors can help alleviate the heat in the rooms, visitors still complain that this is not always enough to create a cooler climate.

Not very quiet

Light-sleeping visitors are upset that they can hear noises when they are looking for a good night's rest. There are nearby paths with locals walking them, and guests say these crowds can be loud and intoxicated. Travellers would like to see the property improve its soundproofing measures.

A lift would be welcome

The absence of a lift is seen by guests as being one of the few deficiencies here. After a long journey, newcomers say there is no assistance with luggage, and to they have to carry it upstairs single-handedly to their rooms.
