Having stayed at this motel several times before and enjoyed my visits I booked my stay for my son's graduation without checking to see if things may have changed since I was last here. The rooms are still large and the location perfect for visiting offspring studying at Otago University. Bonus, the washing machine was free of charge! Unfortunately I...

Staff were exceptionally friendly at all times - we got quite a lot of noise from the road and outside as this hotel is located on a fairly busy strip. This being said it's close to lots of things and was clean and had plenty of space. The shower in the master bedroom was pretty average - not great water...

In Dunedin for a sporting weekend, group of 11. Two units , the large family one in particular suited our needs perfectly. Spotlessly clean, cosy, big well equipped kitchen. Everything appears to have been modernised. Great value, we will be back.

Stayed there for two nights. Late check-inn, no problem. Friendly helpful staff. Room? No we had a kitchen/living room with two beds and one level up a separate bedroom. Maybe all a bit outdated, but well maintained, clean and fresh. Coffee and breakfast nearby, takes a 25 minutes walt to the Octagon. Enough free parking.

The motel is right next to the botanic gardens and about a ten minute walk from the university. I had a one bedroom that was clean but a little cramped. Like most motel rooms in NZ, the room had a small kitchenette. There is a grocery store within a 5 minute walk (on the other side of the botanic garden)....

Stayed 4 nights here. Service was excellent. Room clean and bright. Staff friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to anyone who wants a stress free vacation stay. We left today and left behind 2 baby items which they were so sweet to contact us. We didn't realize that we have left it behind. Now that's great service!

Four of us in 2 bed disabled unit. Spacious enough and could move furniture to suit. Bathroom smelled musty and staff are aware and indicated this needed to be rectified. Linen good, great fridge/freezer combo in kitchen. The real big plus of this place is their staff. Places I've stayed in, no matter the rating, turn into unpleasant places to...

We recently stayed at the Commodore in a two bedroom unit with my daughter and granddaughter. The unit has most things you would need for an overnight stay. The bed was a little hard but warm enough. The decor is pleasant enough but the kitchen and bathroom areas could do with a little updating. Satisfactory for an overnight stay.
