Tidy, Clean Motel

Pros: Fully functioning kitchen including utensils
Cons: I would have preferred an additional lock for the door.
Location: very close to univeristy of Otago. Noisy students at night during orientation week.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was quite big and had a fully functioning kitchen. A bit noisy with university students close by during orientation week.

Easy check in. Unit by the road with car park right beside unit. Shower in that unit was in a dark area of bathroom, could do with more lighting.

Suited our Needs

My family and I stayed briefly overnight. It was a warm, comfortable two bedroom unit. The queen bed was on rollers. It has no headboard so be aware that it might not be flush against the wall. The parking area is a little cramped for larger vehicles. This would be my only real negative. The host was polite on arrival and departure.
