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.

I love the small town of Milton and the St. John’s Court Motel. The town is small, with warm friendly greetings. We were able to walk to the motel from the Intercity Bus stop. The two bedroom accommodation was cozy and beyond what we expected in terms of space and kitchen facilities. The owners, Eion and Bev, were fantastic hosts. When we could not find a driver to get us to our tourist sites, they graciously offered to drive us for a small cost to us. It was a perfect day, with a personal touch. I hope to return, using the motel as a base camp, as I further explore the area. They were in the process of building a bike storage area, with an e-charger, making touring on electric bikes easier.

Business trip for 1 night stay. Motel looks good on the outside and the rooms are well appointed and tidy. The bed was very, very soft though so far too uncomfortable for me. Also i opted for the 'continental breakfast' for $14 which was a mistake. see pic provided. Not really continental and overpriced. The wifi didn't work for a while but eventually came right. Overall for the price paid compared to other motels i've used it was a pretty average experience.

Clean and comfortable. Stayed two nights as in town for a family gathering. Good location to shop and supermarket. Has all the basics you need. Shower pressure was great. Clean room. Little kitchenette for heating up food. Was a cold weekend and both heaters worked well.

My wife and I stopped here during a South Island tour. We booked a two bedroom suite with spa bath but discovered at 9pm the first night that the spa did not work. We explained this to Robbie, the owner, who seemed to know that there was a problem with the spa and offered us a reduction in what we had paid. Generally everything else was satisfactory apart from a very uncomfortable sofa and one or two lights which did not work and no shelves in the bathroom. The kitchen fittings were comprehensive with a full cooker and plenty of substantial cupboards work surfaces etc. There was a full Sky TV package and free very good wifi. The bed was comfortable and we could hear no traffic at night even though the motel is situated on the busy State Highway 1.

Needed motel early evening, chose this as believed all Asure group motels maintained high standard.. how wrong we were to think this especially at $165 for the night. Person on duty amiable enough the room how ever was far from hospitable. Carpets sticky, work surfaces sticky, table top so sticky my arm stuck to it and took all the dead skin off my arm when I moved it. Certainly one way to exfoliate if some what expensive. Needless to say apart from kettle and toilet only other thing used was bed and that was reluctantly. Did not unpack a thing and did not use facilities to wash, seemed better option not to. An all pervasive odour was everywhere which we could not decide whether stale beer or incontinence. Genuinely our worse experience in New Zealand. Not whinging poms, we are citizens, proud of it but this fell far short of the NZ image.

We managed to nab the very last room on a VERY busy weekend - Dunedin was full to bursting and the last motel room in Dunedin was priced at $380 (we'd stayed at this same place before and paid an average of I think $140 for the night - extortionate pricing inflated due to demand!) So we tried our luck on our way through Milton, no harm in asking right? Best decision ever. Rather than having to drive all the way home we secured a wee room, was very tidy with a comfy bed, just what we needed! The owners were very hospitable, and despite them dealing with a guest's medical emergency at the very same time, they still made time for us AND kept smiling! Fantastic people and we definitely recommend checking them out when you're needing to stay in Dunedin, it's only about 30 minutes away!

Last minute booking made the night before, arrived around 1 pm and the room was ready, it was the disabled room, which suited us as my husband is partially disabled , a nice clean comfortable room with two easy chairs, comfy bed, every thing you need for an overnight stay or longer, the only won thing was the TV I like my TV as we dont go out at night so would have liked a better choice of programs, but this is just me and lots of motels do not have much choice in the programs they offer,

Stayed here with a couple of friends in their 2 bedroom unit. Very tidy and plenty of room to sit around and have a chat. Had a pull out sofa which one of us slept on. Was very comfy. So really all 3 of us had our own room. Was great. Walking distance to shòps.

Where do I start? A heater that only works for 2 hours at a time. No iron and ironing board, but instead you need to go a very cramped and untidy Laundry room to use an iron and ironing board that have seen better days. Poor TV set up and woeful channel selection. Very depressing place to stay in for a business traveller. Now, I avoid it like the plague.
