“Modern & Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Exellent location to walking to movies, out for dinnner or seeing the town. Rooms are fresh, modern and warm (no need for flanette P.J's and socks!! Good water pressure and with double glazing you hear very little traffic noise, beds are comfy. Hosts are warm, welcoming and will help you find or locate sights or eating establishments. We enjoy our stay at the Palms that we have booked two years in a row and will stay again this year!

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, really friendly and helpful. Two of us were sharing a two bedroom unit and it was perect - clean, modern, very comfortable and a fab big walk in shower. The location was perfect for us, fairly central and suprisingly quiet; easy to get back to the main roads for heading off on our travels. would definitely stay here again.

We just stayed one night but it was probably the nicest room - spacious and airy - of all the hotels we've stayed in the last 5 weeks in NZ. Stylish, modern, comfy bed, lovely bathroom and good facilities.

Room Tip: We had room 206, by the road, but not noisy because of the double-glazing. Lots of window.

My husband and I stayed there midway through our 10-week trip to NZ, so we knew a thing or two about what we want and like in a Motel. We liked EVERYTHING about the Dunedin Palms Motel, including the new Managers Malcolm and Liz.
We chose a studio as we were only there for 3 nights and decided to eat out each night and sightsee a lot, so didn't need the extra room.
First, the place was immaculate, brand new everything, most comfortable King size bed, huge fluffy white towels changed daily, large modern bathroom with oversize spa shower (like something from Star Trek!), small kitchenette with microwave oven and fridge and toaster but no other cooking facilities (as they have in larger 1 or 2 bedroom units). Inexpensive Internet, Sky-TV, very soundproof unit on 1st floor guaranteed an excellent sleep. Free morning paper as well. Short walking distance to Speights Brewery where we took a tour and booked a dinner, well worth the experience!
Walking distance to downtown, along Princes Street, through the Octagon, you won't need your car!
Our lasting impression was the friendly Managers, who went out of their way to make everything tip-top. we will not hesitate to recomment this property and would love to go back one day! Stay here, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: Unit 221 is a Studio with King size bed, far away from the road, so good sleep is assured!
