Excellent service and great location
I travel quite a bit for work and this is the best motel I've found in Dunedin. Modern, spacious, and the service is excellent. My colleague and I were caught by the snap lockdown but had no issues as we had great support from Peter and Morag. Will definitely stay here again.
