The motel owner was lovely, very courteous and let us check out the room first; the room/apartment was fine, had drive on access, was clean; BUTwe didn't realise that staying in this location during 'O week' would mean very little sleep due to the noisy, partying students all around us. Having a lawnmower started up outside our bedroom window at 11:20pm, then again at 1:10am kind of ruined the night for us!! Hilarious if you are 18 and drunk, not so much if you are 84 and just out of surgery!

The 3-bed unit we booked at Owens was perfect for our family trip to Dunedin. There was plenty of room for our children to play in and it was really helpful having a full lounge and kitchen. Very tidy and worked perfectly for us.
