We found the Arcadian after being badly let down by another motel op. Well they did us a favour. The Arcadian is a gem of a motel we stayed in the 3 room apartment for two nights. Really friendly hosts and staff,..... just nice people!!! The rooms were very clean, large and comfortable. The beds are extremely comfortable. Located within...

We stayed in 2 bedroom house-part. It had separate entrance for your car and nice little yard. Rooms were both huge with their own bathroom. Spacious and clean. Rooms looked really historic with wooden details near the ceiling. Beds were comfortable and large enough. A short drive from city it still had a great location from the beach. Really helpful...

We really enjoyed our stay at this motel, fully equipped kitchen, great shower, nice and quiet, with separate bedroom, huge TV w/ tons of extra channels, lounge area and eating area and chairs to sit in outside. It's in the perfect location within easy walking distance of the beach or the bay and tons of inexpensive restaurants, supermarkets etc. and...

Highly recommend the Arcadian as it was highly recommended to us for our 3 week stay. The Hosts Lauren and Peter and their staff looked after us really well. Hopefully there will be a return booking in my future. We were a couple of Sisters visiting Family.

We were return customers, having stayed here many years ago and while the hosts had changed the hospitality had not. While not 5 star the motel is clean, tidy and has everything you need. the hosts are very friendly and helpful and the units serviced every day. Definately the place to stay in Dunedin

Owner and employees all are very nice!  We arrived before noon, but they our unit ready.  Like most motels in New Zealand, we parked the car right in front, but there was plenty of space so it did not seem like you were driving into the front door like some other motels!   We stayed in a one bedroom unit...

we stayed here for one night. the room was what looked like part of the old house and whilst it was a very big room this did make it quite cold and it did take a lot of heating. there wasn't a kitchen area as such but a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities and a toaster all inside a cupboard. the...

Kind and helpful host, room clean, tidy and quiet. Although the weather is cold outside but we felt very warm inside. The location of motel is easy to find.

My third visit, and again had a good experience. A clean room, good bed, cooking facilities (really appreciated the good knives), and an easy walk to shops and supermarket. A quieter part of town and everyone was very friendly and helpful. All for a good price. Appreciated the free WiFi,too.

We stayed here for 1 night in January and were very satified. We had a room in the house - downstairs - rather than the traditional motel type rooms. Everything was clean, it was a large room with a small area to make drinks/breakfast, sofa and TV, free wi-fi was appreciated. This was the cheapest place we stayed in in...
