  • Older travelers

    Pleasant people. THe room was fine, warm and welcoming considering it was a very cold miserable day in Dunedin. It was nice to get back and be comfortable.

    Nothing really. It was good for us and what we needed.

  • Family with children

    City experience of Dunedin

  • Group of friends

    The fact that the motel on York is one of the only motels in Dunedin that takes the 'host accomodation' booklets is such a great plus for us in the fact that it allows for us to stay in such a nice hotel so close to the city. This has been our second stay now and we have enjoyed every bit about it. The hotel is walking distance to pretty much everything and is very modern and the rooms are very cosy. The owners were very nice in allowing us to book into our room early and to also leave our bags at reception for a few hours after we had to vacate. This saved us a very big hassle of having to cart our bags around Dunedin.Thankyou for making our stay so enjoyable!

    nothing really. maybe to have de caff coffee sachets? :)

  • Older travelers

    Comfortable,clean,pleasant hosts and location.

  • Older travelers

    Visit to Ecological centre, Plato restaurant

  • Single

    Very friendly staff, excellent accomodation, extremely clean and tidy, room was serviced daily, close to town and easy drive to Mercy Hospital which was the reason for my stay. Would certainly stay at Motel on York again next time I am in Dunedin.

  • Older travelers

    Very central location. Everything advertised about Motel on York was factual. Would definitely return.

  • Older travelers

    Warm and welcoming hosts. Efficiently dealt with at reception and kindly shown to our room and the facilities in same. Lovely sunny room.

  • Group of friends

    The room was lovely and clean. The location was great for a one night stay in the city. And it was nice and quiet. The owner were very welcoming and showed us to our room and where everthing was. This doesn't happen offen when arriving at our motel. Our Aussie guests were very impressed with the motel. The owners were helpful with guiding us to bars and resturants. We did go to the Angus Steak house it was ok but nothing to rave about. Thank you we will recommend to others

    We found the bed really bouncey. You new when the other person moved. There was nothing wrong with it, we are just used to a bed that is more stable.

  • Couple

    Very clean and quiet rooms. Excellent shower.

    A large amount of rules, not only in the guide, but also posted in the room, made us feel a bit on edge.

  • Older travelers

    clean, location, realistic price

  • Older travelers

    Location is excellent, very comfortable and quiet.

  • Older travelers

    We liked that it was close to everything we needed

    We didnt enjoy standing on the street to have to smoke there could be a smoking area placed somewhere out of the way from non smoking guests

  • Older travelers

    The location and all equipment was in good condition.

    The only thing that was not up to the very high standard was for me the bed. My husband thought it was fine.

  • Older travelers

    Staff very friendly and everything was clean and tidy.....will return for sure.
