Cheap & cheerful, highly recommended

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 May 2022
This place isn't flash, but the customer service is exceptional & they helped me out when another accommodation provider (see previous review) let me down spectacularly. They were willing to provide affordable accommodation at VERY short notice at 10.45pm on a weekday night. The room is comfortable & basic, but the overall experience was enhanced by their willingness to assist and help when others didn't. Highly recommended.

Reviewed 17 April 2021

We had the 2 bedroom unit for 4 nights.
The bedrooms have no windows , just a small glassed area looking into the lounge. The heating was an old electric heater that smelled awful so we didn’t use it.
The only window in the place (apart from the bathroom one) is by the kitchen . It doesn’t lock so just rattles in the wind all night . we had to buy cutlery as there were no forks and only one spoon.
The bathroom is a tiny area , totally wet floor so when you had a shower the whole place got wet. When you used the toilet the floor was always a puddle.
The walls were so thin that we could hear the neighbour speaking and snoring all night.
Internet went fine but the TV reception was shocking , the sound cut out every third word so we were left playing a game each evening trying to fill in the blanks.
Very noisy lads moved in next door on our final night and kept us awake until 4am, Great!!
When we booked we read the good reviews and saw the lovely pictures. Sounded quirky but great - not our experience at all. This place is tired , noisy and cold.
On the plus side.....
Management were friendly and let us arrive early which was very nice , linen was clean, handy location, lovely second hand shop next door and a great cafe 2 doors away. Very close to a bus stop, Dunedin buses are awesome.
if you are a student or used to living in a dorm, this might suit you.

This motel was situated in a very convenient location. The city centre was close by. There was under cover parking. A ramp was there for people in wheel chairs.
The street was very quiet and there was no disturbances at night.
I can truly recommend staying at this motel.

Reviewed 12 August 2019

The room was not as pictured online, it was old and cold. Couch held up by a brick, tacky furniture and the bed was not level. The carpet was old and stained. Room was heated by a single heater. For the $180 price tag, go elsewhere.

Room tip: wouldn't book here
