Great Value. Great Service. Great Motel. ★★★★★

Thanks Brendon for another great stay in your Motel. The George Street Motel is an excellent location, close to the centre of the City yet quiet. Plenty of off street parking. The Units are very clean, warm and spacious. The owner/operator of the Motel is full of great tourist information and helpful with all requests.Super friendly staff. We have stayed here numerous times when in Dunedin and never been disappointed. Totally the best for value for money.

Comfortable and close to city ★★★★

Was a good place to stay, apartment was warm (2 deg out) and got all the morning sun. It was quiet in terms of traffic, lean and comfy bed. There were parts of the room that were a bit battered but overall, tidy and clean thanks guys.

Comfortable, clean and conveniently located. ★★★★★

This accommodation surpassed my expectations! We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was tastefully furnished, the bedroom was quiet with very comfortable bedding and the kitchen was more than adequate with modern quality appliances. The apartment was located very close to an array of restaurants and cafes and was about a 10-15 minute walk from the main attractions including Dunedin Railway Station and The Octagon. The staff were very helpful and obliging. Would definitely stay here again!
