Its in a good location, so easy to walk around town. Parking is good. The place was very clean. Unfortunately the bed was a queen and had seen better days. Quite uncomfortable if we're honest. We'd booked an extra large bed, which we expected to be a king size or two singles joined together. Probably should have asked for an upgrade in hindsight. Room was okay, the duvet was nice and warm, and the room temperature good. It was a bit noisy due to the road outside and some people noise, but that's not the properties fault. The water pressure in the bathroom sink was fantastic, but the shower was pretty lame. Overall it was just above average. We're probably just disappointed because we'd paid similar money somewhere else and this it was not nearly as good.

Room Tip: Check the bed size. Extra large does not equal a king size like others on other booking.com...

Motel was good if a bit pricey. About a 1km or more walk to the octagon. On a very steep hill... Not so good if your knees are bad 😳. Nice beds and pretty quiet except for the occasional guy shouting early in the morning from elsewhere.

Quiet and comfortable, with an excellent bathroom. Staff were superb - they had a park specially reserved for our EV with a handy power outlet nearby for us to trickle-charge overnight; we probably only used 80c of power but it makes such a difference being able to head off in the morning with a fully charged battery.

We stayed here as it was close to a wedding venue we were going to. Handy to town and clean and tidy. Apparently the floor in the shower of the accessibility room was slippery so perhaps a rubber non-slip mat may be handy? Very accommodating in letting us check in early so we could get changed for the wedding which was really helpful thanks so much...

We loved Dunedin Palms motel, always a pleasure to stay there, but now, its changed, No Sky TV, no extra pillows, no alarm clock, no complimentary newspaper, yes they have wi fi, but its slow as, the room is lovely but the service is not, and we were paying full price, when we arrived, we had to pay and got given our key, but nothing else,, we phoned reception a few times to find out if we could get an alarm clock (not everybody has a cellphone) but no answer, the next day when we left, nobody in reception, we wont be going back,
