We stayed as a group taking 4 rooms. We chose on location and price. Considering that it was a very busy week in Dunedin, university students returning and lots of visiting parents plus a big rugby game, we were very happy with the price. The rooms are clean and an ample size with the amenities that you expect from a...

I recently stayed there Owen's Motel with my 10 mth old baby,4 year old son and my mother. My baby girl has just started standing and crawling she is on the move. While she was crawling around the coffee table she found a pill on the second shelf of the table and was attempting to get it into her mouth....

We have stayed at Owens before because it meets all the Family requirements. The rooms are big and nice and clean with great linen and towels. The motel is in a very central location and has the benefit of a 24 hour mini mart a few metres away. The owners are nice and friendly and there is good car parking....

Large rooms, both living area and bedrooms. Great central location - just 10 minute walk from Otago Museum. Reasonably priced and lovely owners. Unfortunately the rooms are not sound proofed very well and when full, ignorant guests can make for an unpleasant experience. Also will need to be updated in the near future as starting to show signs of use...

Stayed for one night in a 3 bedroom apartment. Apartment layout was a bit strange. Kitchen and dining area were separated by a large bedroom. One of the single bed is at the corridor, not in a room. Kitchen is a bit tiny and hot plates needs some fixing. Bathroom has no heater and I wonder how one takes a...

Very pleasant & accomodating on arrival, especially as we changed our booking from two nights to one. All a little worse for wear but I guess that happens. The room was very warm & as we were at the front beside the street opening a window wasn't an option. Two bags of laundry were sitting outside our door when we...

I like this place. Its cheap as long as you book in advance. Close to town and huge rooms. We could have slept 5 people in the room. No plankets for the pulout couch however Owner was apathetic unfortunately Definately will use this place again.

We stayed 1 night at Owens Motel and after driving from Christchurch after landing at 5am we arrived a bit early but the owners were more than happy for us to check in early! An absolute life saver because we were all knackered. We booked a 1 Bedroom Apartment which could've easily fit a family of 4 or 5 with...

Second time I've stayed here. The owners were happy to let us book at late notice and gave us a good room. With a late check in, the outside light had been left on 😊 . A spacious room at an affordable price. Room was big, double sizes bed with a spare single. Plenty of milk and coffee supplied, along...

I have stayed here a few times. It is clean and functional, but a little dated. On my recent trip the weather in Dunedin was really cold, and the heater in the room barely took the chill off with the drafts coming through the windows. So I went to bed only to find the electric blanket didnt work. It is...
