Not only was John welcoming and friendly with loads of info about the city when we arrived late as last minute booking. When we decided to spend another night as he sold the city to us so well and we knew the city motels were full due to a concert he sent a message round and worked to find us another nights stay in another motel... wonderful.
Thank you

I've been meaning to write this review for a while now. I travel to Dunedin quite a bit for work and I all ways stay in the Garden Motel. Its extremely clean and the own always turns on the heater in the room before I arrive, its a really great touch. About 100m from the motel there a lovely Thai & Turkish restaurant which also does take away. I definitely this motel when visiting Dunedin.

The unit was clean, with a full kitchen and electric blankets. For us the unit was a little cold, we only had the wall heater and a separate fan heater. This is commonplace for Kiwi motels, but it really needs addressing. Otherwise everything was up to scratch and the location is central to everything, handily pizza and other fast foods are nearby. Something the motel cannot do anything about but we noticed it soon enough; State Highway 1 runs through the city, heavy trucks run down the hill into the city and their exhaust brakes can keep you awake. We found it really annoying. If you are noise sensitive then a hotel even more central would be advisable.
