A cozy place to stay at Dunedin”

We spent one night at Aria on Bank Motel. It was a small but comfortable place with stylish design. The room was well equipped with a kitchen and a bathroom. Everything looked very new and sparkling clean. The only thing I can complaint is that the mattress was too soft and thin, which is not very good for my back. Otherwise it was a perfect experience here. The lady at the front desk was nice and welcoming. She gave us all the details about Dunedin including dining, parking and location to visit. That was extremely helpful to us. I would highly recommend to stay at this motel.

The staff at the counter were very friendly as well. I will love to visit again. It's not the cheapest place in Dunedin but it's definitely one of the nicest!

The accommodation underestimates themselves as a motel, actually it's more like a villa with self pataking space. Staff friendly and great location. In the kitchen you can find the cutlery and cookery, in the toilet you can find the toothbrush and toothpaste and even once off shaver and gel! They care about details. Highly recommend ~

Awesome place to stay!”

I booked a small studio but was upgraded to the loft apartment which I recommend highly over the studio which is really small. Easy free parking outside room, located away from main city but only 2 min drive to get there but very close to a large park/ gardens nice cafes and the steepest street all walking distance from here. The loft room was very modern - recently renovated with latest appliances etc and a very comfy bed. Would def stay again!

Very strict Infant policy!”

The hotel has a very strict infant policy. Infants although stay free, they are still considered 1 headcount. Therefore even though my infant (22mths) sleeps with us in the same room, we had to take up a 2bedroom apartment. the other room was left empty throughout. Not recommended if you have an infant travelling with you. Rooms were quite small and there are stairways as it is a duplex. However apartment is clean and tidy and well equipped.

Property very clean and very well-maintained, with car park just right in front of the apartment. The 2 partners Jenny and Mao were very helpful and hands-on and that makes lots of difference. Only 2 drawbacks - just 1 shared Washer/Dryer and no dish-washer in unit.
