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.

Clean older revamped holiday units, did I mention clean. On-site laundry 1 machine & dryer, ample as this is short term. Debbie manager seems like a one women dynamo & very friendly. Kitchen supplied with clean pots and a Teflon frying pan that actually has Teflon & clean. Crispy sheets & fresh towels when needed. Great location supermarket & takeaways, restaurants within 1 klm. Much more relaxing than staying in town/Dunedin 5 minute drive. Very comfortable.

The apartment was clean and tidy, however it was a little run down, i thought the price for a studio was a little bit overpriced. The toilet and bathroom are narrow. The host was friendly which was nice. It is nice to be out of town, close to the beach. Grocery shop and grog shop 5 min drive. Our studio was around the back, was nice and quiet, i liked being away from the main st

Very comfy beds but otherwise the unit was very tired needing a lot of work. There is 1 separate toilet (tiny!) and a separate shower (tiny!) but sleeping 9 people in 3 bedrooms it would be very crowded if there were actually 9 in the unit! It is a short walk to the beach.

This is a moderately priced, old-fashioned concrete block style motel which is kept well maintained. We stayed in a studio unit with a queen and single bed in the main room which had good heater and comfortable sitting area. There's a small well equipped kitchenette, and separate shower, handbasin and toilet. Recommended for a couple on a budget and perfect for a short stay of 1-3 nights.

Super friendly. Heater had been put on for our arrival. Beds clean, lots of towels. Had 3 bed apartment. One bathroom. Door wouldn't shut on toilet or shower. Shower handles fell off every time we used it. Wiring in kitchen dodgy. Had to tilt microwave at certain angle to get it to work. No microwaveable bowls to heat food. Laundry good but expensive at $5 a load. Very close to beach.

Recently we stayed at the Beach Lodge Motel with a group of 15 students. They were so accomodating to us and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were cleaned of rubbish daily and the students dishes were washed properly and put away. The students were really impressed to come back each day to a tidy unit and this encouraged them to keep it tidy too. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay with a group as its off the road and safe. The basketball hoop was a hit for down times with the boys!

Our ice hockey team (20 players and helpers) had a great 4 days at the beach lodge. I minute from the ice rink and 2 mins to St Clair. Staff couldn’t be more helpful. Already booked in for next year. Thanks for making our arrangements so easy.

Lovely clean rooms with great cooking facilities. Very close to the beach and Natalie told us about Back Beach at Port Chalmers so we went for a beautiful walk looking at the boat houses then to the pub for a great lunch. Very helpful staff.
