Our suite was a spacious apartment. The bedroom doesn't have much room for walking, but had a great bed. The location was great - about a 10 minute walk to the octagon (downtown), and 2 blocks from a great cafe. We loved the hosts and free Internet. They also have laundry machines - need to purchase detergent and drying time, but very affordable. The reception room also has a DVD and book library, with a tourist highlight of Dunedin.

We have stayed twice here. Both times were excellent in all respects except that the second was in the studio across from the office and on the street corner. The unit was noisy at night due to the main (George?) street, both road and foot traffic. Drapes are also required for privacy in that the unit is ground floor. Our first stay was in an upstairs unit bordering the side street and noise and privacy concerns were negligible. If the corner unit were the only one available we would probably still stay here but bring ear plugs and close the drapes.

Room Tip: Avoid corner unit across from office, due to noise and privacy.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

When spouse and self walked in we said, with a little surprise “Been here before” but many years ago. Changes since then have been very little, if anything, if memory prevails. This is a central city motel, convenient to most services one may need. A 15-minute walk towards the Octagon takes one past restaurants which may be of excellent quality but have an outward appearance of otherwise. Even the nearest pub, so far as we know it, is not as it was. Does memory fail or has this part of George Street had a downward trend?
The room provided everything we needed for 2-nights and the hospitality at reception was excellent with the room clean and spacious. With certainty, any information we may have needed would have been available but, simply put, we did not need any. We ordered an Indian takeaway, for evening, from somewhere which turned up by their stated time – enough for two evenings in fact. The nearest restaurant is at the Quality Inn but the menu in the motel folder didn’t appeal, neither did the venue which I visited for a look-see.
I believe it true to say this motel is busy, provides an excellent service in the central city with clean and satisfactory rooms though has nothing exceptional going for it. Nevertheless, we would happily stay there again due to convenience to the city centre if that was required.
