Very clean and tidy. Had cooktop and fridge which made meals a lot cheaper than eating out. Had it's own ensuite which was excellent. Really enjoyed a very comfortable stay here and would highly recommend. Really quiet place to stay away from the city in a superb location on the Otago Peninsula really close to Penguin Place and the Albatross... More

After reading some of the previous comments, our unit (5) was quite OK. When making reservations two weeks earlier, our only alternatives in our preferred area were $145 or $155 so $120 at Harington Point sounded appealing. Our unit was a little dated with two solid ring hotplates, lounge lighting very dim, but we had heaps of space in a... More

We stayed here the night on the night of 18/19 February (2016). We booked Unit 1 (2 bedrooms with full kitchen) and were pleasantly surprised. The motel is under new management of Robin, who lives close nearby and she was very friendly, helpful and sociable. Perhaps for this reason our experience was very different from those of some earlier travelers.... More

Worst place we have ever stayed! Double booked our unit so made to stay in a shabby tiny room with nothing!! No discount just horrible. Had a communal bathroom that had no door handle or lock just a hole in the door. Up the unstable stairs was a kitchen that smelt so bad had broken power sockets hanging off the... More

for a very modest price we got a 2-bedroom cottage with full kitchen and a view of the bay. yes, the interior is quite dated, but not in unpleasant way. spacious and light-filled. yes, a bit too far away from Dunedin, maybe 25-30 minute drive, but close to a few natural attractions, including albatross centre, penguin colony, a few DOC...

We stayed one night ; normally we enjoy being surrounded by nature - but this felt too isolated even for us ; we wish we had stayed somewhere closer to Portobello ; the room was on the small side as well - a little crammed.

We found Harington Point motel (cabin style accommodation) to be comfortable, clean and well equipped for our stay. We were warmly greeted on arrival and enjoyed a leisurely walk to the beach area. The quiet environment was appreciated. We were pleasantly surprised after reading previous reviews and would recommend them as ideal for visiting the Albatross Centre and penguin viewing.... More

We did not see staff for 2 days including check in. No cleaning, towels upon request but no pick up of old towels or rubbish disposal. Remote location far from everything except albatross and legions (a feature, I suppose). For sale for a good reason: the owner couldn't be bothered. And, the topper, room rates at Hilton prices. Stay in... More

We stayed with another couple in these "cabins" - see photo. These had updated shower/toilet - very clean and efficient. Kitchen area was fine - microwave and hotplates. Sink was fine - not sure what previous reviewer means. You can park car right next to the units and there is plenty of space round most of them. We picked it... More

This motel is really a mixed bag. We rented one of the self contained units which turned out to be 1/2 of one of the free standing structures on the grounds of the motel. The motel is really well located near the penguin and albatross colonies at the end of the peninsula. The room we rented was very clean and... More
