Good Value and Location

Review of Motel On York
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 May 2023via mobile
A pleasant enough stay, in a studio room with a comfortable bed and the room getting the morning sun.
The bathroom had plenty of bench space although the shower is small with its angled door. The motel is in a great location, easy walking distance to restaurants and the Octagon in the centre of town.
The not-so-good… a parking spot is not assured with parking not allocated to your room and 2 of the 3 nights we stayed the carpark was full when we arrived back after 7pm. Housekeeping did not make the bed or renew the ‘complimentary’ supplies of tea bags or milk; not ideal the milk is given in a refillable bottle. Be aware you may be given a room with stair access only.
It was great to be given a few suggestions for places we had not visited before - we may not have known about these otherwise.
We recommend the motel as a good place to stay and good value for Dunedin.

The location is ideal with restaurants, markets, and sites close by. The hotel itself is well thought out. It is just rooms, no bar or restaurant or anything. They are very useful for tips on activities that guests have confirmed enjoyable and have a guest laundry which was wonderful having been living out of luggage for over two weeks. Just really pleasant proprietors.

First time staying at Motel on York and it was great. We were on the top floor Room11 and it was clean and very tidy. Everyone that worked there was polite and pleasant to talk too. It is within easy walking distance to the octagon and to the main street. We will definitely be staying here again when we come and visit our son at Uni.

Great location, efficient, friendly service, spacious, clean, and comfortable. What sets this property apart is the attention to detail. There's obviously an owner pride in the way this place is run and maintained. Everything works well. Heating is great, and amenities are well thought through and good quality with attention to detail. Highly recommended.

Room tip: Stairs only, no elevators. So if you have mobility problems, ask for ground floor.

Perfect
Everything was perfect starting with a warm welcome from the friendly and informative receptionist. Our room had nice views across the city, was warm, spotlessly clean and very close to the Octogon - about a two minute walk. Loved it.
