A clean spacious studio unit, comfortable bed, excellent bathroom, in short everything we needed for a two night stay. Bonus was location, less than 5 minutes to anywhere we needed and everything else within a comfortable walking distance.

This motel is in a good central location but quiet. It is modern, spacious and clean. The hosts are friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We walked to attractions within the central city. Highly recommended

Our room was very clean and spacious. It had a great outlook and was light and sunny. The rooms are over three floors, we had a third floor room which we liked for view over the rooftops and peeps of the sea. The sliding doors opened to a narrow balcony not wide enough to sit on but nice to step out onto or to open the door for fresh air. I would definitely stay here again.

From the moment we arrived, Andy & Vicki could not do enough to help us. Reason for staying was partner was in hospital having major surgery. A short distance from the Dunedin Hospital and main shopping center. Room was warm, comfortable and spacious. I would say without a doubt, when we are back in Dunedin for follow up tests and visits, we will be back.
