The bathroom was a little small but functional. The frontdesk staff were wonderful; very helpful and accomodating. From the motel it is a short walk...

Fabulous hosts. Could not do enough for you. I have stayed there before and the upgrade to a bigger room was very much appreciated. I was there for two nights and the room was beautifully serviced between days 1 and 2.

Nice room ,clean and nicely decorated.,but our room was rather cold and dark. We were there on a cold day in Dunedin so it took a while to warm up. All the windows were opened when we arrived at 3.30, so we had to shut them and crank up the heater! Shower water pressure was terrible so didn't bother washing...
