Best motel in Dunedin central ”

Fabulous motel with everything I needed for my 2 night stay. About 5 minutes to walk into the Octagon, surrounded by restaurants and cafes. My interaction with the staff was minimal, however when I did need something they were so happy to help. Very friendly, accommodating hosts and receptionists. I would not hesitate to recommend this motel to others, and I look forward to my next stay

This was a great motel we stayed at for 2 nights. The staff were all lovely and very helpful. The room was everything we needed with a kitchenette and sink which was so helpful, travelling with our baby. It was also a nice surprise coming back from lunch to have our room nice and tidy! I would recommend this motel to all travellers visiting Dunedin.

This was our second stay at Dunedin Palms and it was just as good as the first 2 years ago! It is a modern motel located near the centre of the city with plenty of parking.

Friendly stay”

The staff were super friendly and helpful

I would like to rate the hotel higher, I really would, as the staff were just incredibly friendly and helpful, but the bed was a tad ordinary, the fittings were a little simple. It's unfortunately not 4 stars. Everything was very very clean and relatively quiet - couldn't hear any traffic noise once the front door closed but I could hear my neighbor through the thin toilet walls! It is a VERY high 3 stars with everything you would need but it lacks the finer comforts that would qualify it as a 4 star. I would happily stay here again as is but let's be fair in the ratings.
