Hi Anonymous thank you for posting your review. Some power points are controlled from a switch in Reception, unfortunately this must not have been activated during your stay, our apologies for this oversight. If we had known it would have just been a matter of turning the switch on! Should you ever have any problems during a stay any where just phone Reception and advise them. Staff are always happy to help if they are made aware.

We had a room with morning sun and a view over the city. It was quiet, close to town and we will certainly be back.

Superb

Pros: Attention to detail - there was even a small pair of scissors. Comfy bed, clean spacious room and good car parking.
Location: Great location - hop skip and a jump into the centre of town.
Great location, great people running the place and nothing was a problem. Cannot get better than that.

Convenient location, and Comfortable

Pros: Pleasant surroundings, clean and comfortable.
Cons: The suite we were in had no air conditioner and got quite hot at night. A fan would make all the difference in Summer.
Location: Shops and restaurants, Cadbury's Chocolate Factory, Olveston House, University Book Shop, railway station, Settlers Museum.
We spent three nights at Motel on York. The suite was comfortable and spacious with a lovely view of Dunedin and surrounds. Friendly staff did everything possible to make our stay pleasant. Within walking distance of Dunedin CBD meant ease of access to restaurants and shops. We'd definitely stay there again.
