Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent stay, we were upgraded when we arrived for no extra cost our unit was very comfortable and was spotlessly clean. For a busy part of town and the units all being full it was very quiet. We will return and would recommend these motels as excellent value for money.

Owner cancelled booking with a "false" excuse, which was disproved by my bank and the accommodation booking service. I can only speculate that he was able to get more $$$ from someone else as Dunedin was booked out due to a concert. Not a "business practice" that I will support and will always look elsewhere.

I stayed here on and off for a total of about three to four weeks in March, April and May 2022 while the bathroom at my house was renovated. The renovations were delayed by months as a result of trades persons getting COVID-19 and sub-contractors making errors with supply orders. As a result I ended up staying at Allan Court for much longer than expected. This is an excellent motel. I had two rooms for my various bookings, both spacious one bedroom apartments. They varied in terms of fittings and fixtures. One had a large kitchen, the other a tiny one, one had a spa bath (jacuzzi) and another just a shower, one had been refurbished while the other would have benefited from a fresh coat of paint and new carpet. However, both were comfortable, warm and inviting. As the motel is close to my office at work I even had friends over for afternoon tea. I was fortunate to be able to make reservations at short notice as Allan's Court is often booked out. The owners were always friendly and accomodating though, and because I was such a frequent guest over these months always managed to find a room for me, usually my favourite spa suite (deluxe unit). The beds were comfortable, although they tended to have heavy blankets rather than fluffy duvets (I prefer the latter). As a result I found it difficult to regulate my nighttime temperature while sleeping and often woke up too cold or too hot, especially as autumn progressed into cooler nights and I needed to use the heater. But this would be a minor issue for just a couple of nights, and most people wouldn't notice it as the mattresses and linen were excellent. I recommend the spa suite, called the deluxe unit. There might be more than one available. It includes a huge two person spa bath (jacuzzi), almost as large as a spa pool. It was totally luxurious and made me somewhat regretful that I didn't include one in my bathroom renovations at home. The spa suite is also more refurnished than some of the other rooms. The one I had is a spacious one bedroom apartment, with a completely separate bedroom and open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area (not a single room studio), the size of a spacious apartment in many major cities. Allan Court Motel is good value quality accomodation in central Dunedin, perfect for either a short or long term stay. I highly recommend it.

Very happy with the location. Our room was comfortable and had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy except for paint flaking from the ceiling over the shower. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We had a booking in June and it was cancelled as the manager said we were a group booking and didn’t want our custom as we would bring covid with us!!! I explained that we were not a group booking and we’re just visiting Dunedin for a event. He said he didn’t want our business and had to cancel. Be warned with this motel that he could cancel your booking at any time. Certainly not good for business.

This is quite an old motel, not well insulated, very loud plumbing noises, one small heater is not enough for July weather in the South. The toilet in our unit could do with a 'deep' clean. Although there is sky, there is far from the full gambit of channels, a poor selection. The channel list it the motel info book was certainly no where near what was provided.
