It's a clean, neat, and comfortable motel with a great location. Close to St Kilda beach, downtown Dunedin, and Larnach Castle. We always seemed to run over our wifi allowance but were never charged and we always needed more coffee and they were happy to oblige. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because we prefer a firm...

We were delighted when we arrived here after a long drive over from the west coast. The unit was beautifully presented with lots of little touches. Parking great, laundry on site and a very helpful reception. Countdown supermarket around the corner to load up on ingredients and a beach up the road. Don't hesitate to book these guys if you...

Adrian motel is nice, clean, on the beach (500 mtrs) and close to the Otego Peninsula. Kitchenette, seats, tv, free wifi. We stayed for two nights and had a good time. Cooked our own meals, witch was good after days of restaurant-food. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The man at reception was friendly and welcoming. The motel had a good off street parking and great bed, very warm and comfortable, however the bedroom was so cramped that the door didn't open fully as it jammed against the bed. This made it difficult getting up in the night for comfort visit. It is a budget motel and as...

This motel did not look much from the outside, but it was great! Very clean, with attention to detail. The staff are very helpful and obviously care about their motel. It was handy for the beach, the city and the Otago peninsula. We had two nights but would have enjoyed more.
