I like the location of the hotel. Only issue I had with the hotel was the lateness of the cleaning of our room. We arrived back twice in the afternoon after 3 pm to find the room not cleaned. We had actually gone back to rest before dinner but couldn’t due to the cleaning. We had been out on both days all day until 3 pm.

Great motel in the heart of Dunedin only a block from all the eateries. Extremely comfortable bed in a nice sized room. Only thing that annoyed me was having to pay $18 to park for the night in the motel carpark.
