Stayed for 2 nights. Very comfortable room and if weather is bad there's a great selection of DVDs to borrow in reception and a player in your room. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Location is right in the middle of all the car dealerships, DIY places and other big retail outlets.

My husband and I called at this motel early evening but unfortunately it was fully booked. We asked Rucahrd and Sue the owner/managers, whether there was another Best Western in the vicinity. Unfortunately there wasn't but they were so helpful and checked the Internet for available rooms elsewhere. RIchard set up an online booking for us at another hotel and...

Great location, quiet and spacious rooms, very clean and friendly owners. Convenient to beach restaurants, the Otago Peninsula and the train station. Richard & Sue, the owners, are warm and helpful. They recommended a scenic route to take on the Otago Peninsula and an easy route back to the motel in the dark after viewing the Penguins. Also, they purchased...

Thank you for the lovely review of us here in Dunedin. We are are pleased your package arrived safely back in the USA. Our position on the south side of Dunedin is very handy for those who wish to see and visit the many highlights of the Otago Peninsula, we always recommend you drive out there on the 'high' road...

My husband and I have recently returned to the United States from a three week trip to Australia and New Zealand. While in Dunedin, New Zealand, we experienced a perfect storm of failed plans regarding housing, a lost computer, and a terrible, lengthy, experience on the telephone with AIRB&B. Exhausted, driving at night in the rain, we passed a Best...

We wanted to visit both Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula during our visit. The Best Western was convenient to both. We had little trouble finding inexpensive 4 hour for$4 street parking a couple blocks from Octagon in downtown on a very busy Saturday. Also we could drive back and forth to Otago Peninsula without driving thru the city. Our room...

Nice clean and quiet hotel but not in the most scenic part of Dunedin ,being close to supermarkets and light industry. It was convenient to most places like st Clair and city centre and hosts made us welcome.

Room good size with a very comfortable bed. Seating for 4 people which was great. Lovely & clean with a cooked breakfast included in our stay which was unexpected. Very handy to supermarket. Check in staff lovely & even carried our bags up stairs to our room. Thought traffic noise might be a problem but didn't hear a thing.

Our hosts at the BW 555 were very helpful with suggestions. We were in Dunedin for the wildlife but next time we will stay for the city. The room was spacious and quiet even though next to the highway. Our purchased breakfast was delivered promptly and it was delicious. When we were dropped after our 6.5 hour wildlife trek, the...
