This motel is very nice. The rooms are spacious and the decor very attractive. Comfortable beds, good shower, off street parking all excellent. And the owners are very helpful and pleasant.

Loved staying here. The owners are very pleasant and very helpful - allowing us to check in early. The accommodation was well above what we originally expected - I could not fault a single thing about the place

My parents had stayed here several years ago and had raved about it. When we returned to Dunedin it was the only hotel we considered and we were thrilled we did. Firstly the accommodation is in a great location down by the University but close to the CBD. George St is the Main Street of Dunedin so it is close...

When we were last here a year ago I could not fault the experience. Unfortunately this time there were several areas that were not quite up to scratch. We stayed in the front building which I suspect was built some time after the buildings towards the rear. The decor is perhaps more modern but as a result did not have...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Our room was upstirs, clean and good connection Wifi and very cosy. We've got warm welcome from the owner, and he was very kind and helpful.

This is a family owned 14 unit quaint little hotel. Units have small refrigerators, two burner stove top, kettles and utinciles. The wood working is beautiful and the units very comfortable. There are huge Windows in the sitting rooms and since the units are close together you pretty much have to pull the blinds or you feel rather exposed. The...

We stayed 2 nights in 858 and were very impressed with the size and quality of room finishing, especially the bathroom. The, very enthusiastic and helpful owners, have chosen good amenities etc. The only disappointment we had was no coffee refilled for the 2nd morning breakfast, which again was pure Continental, only cold. I do miss a warm item at...

The owner made every effort to make our stay successful. The room was clean and comfortable. The owner carried our heavy luggage to the first floor.He gave us great tips on where to go in the city. One suggestion for improvement: The fan in the bathroom can only be turned off by closing the bathroom's door and waiting for ten...
