There were 7 of us. The suite was spacious with well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. There was only one washroom in the suite and very inconvenient for us. They provide free wifi access as well for all of us.

We were three male friends who were in town for the Rugby. Great location, clean, comfortable and spacious enough despite one of us using the sofa as a fold out bed. Free Wifi was great and the hosts were very friendly. 150 meters away is a 24 hour dairy (corner shop) which was handy.

The kitchen area was large and bright and clean and was just off the main room. There was a separate bedroom with a queen and twin bed... More

Its in a great location, out of the immediate city, so avoiding the noisy students at night, however only 10-15 minutes walk along the main st into town, so easy to navigate without a car. The rooms are large & comfortable. The staff are friendly & always have time to answer questions. Perfect place to call 'home' for the night... More

We arrived in dunedin late with our miniature dog. Its not always easy to find good motels that accept pets and often the worst rooms are kept for us dog lovers. But the owner was really nice.
