This was budget accommodation - homely units up an extraordinarily steep drive. The two bedroom unit was well appointed and very comfortable. Parking was a bit of an issue with having to juggle cars in a tight space at the top of a steep hill. The manager was very welcoming with plates of brownies on arrival. The major drawback was...

We came down to Dunedin at short notice and were delighted to get a booking so close to where we needed to be. We told Sandi we would be arriving very late at night but it was no problem for her. She left a welcoming note for our arrival, plus turned on the heating so the unit was lovely and...

Lovely welcoming host, spotless room, and a bit of a find for character accommodation. The studio unit is a converted ultra-large room with a magnificent, ornate plaster ceiling. Kitchenette tucked into bay window, small bathroom in another corner. Great for a night or two when you want to spend your money on other things :)

A better welcome would be hard to find anywhere in the world! The host 'Sandi' is a New Zealand treasure, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay so returned for another night after riding the Otago Rail Trail. Our studio unit was spotless, really comfortable with plenty of room. Not sure if we will make it back to Dunedin again but if...

We found this place through trip advisor, and the reviews could not be more spot on! Our 2 day stay here was excellent. We just popped in off the street and Sandi had a room ready and waiting for us. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit which was exactly what we were looking for! Lots of room for us...

We stayed in the Edwardian style studio unit - room 4 (with the corner bay window and superb decorative plaster ceiling). The management were very friendly and welcoming with a nice piece of cake and we enjoyed our stay. The unit has a moderate sized room with smallish separate toilet and shower. The kitchen is in the cleverly converted bay...

Great wee place, extremely helpful and chatty owner and just what we needed after a long drive from Central Otago on the spur of the moment AND the day after New Year's - so lucky to get a place, let along one so central and so good. We even got a chocolate cake, how about that!

I needed to stay somewhere while my wife had surgery at Dunedin Hospital and a work colleague recommended Manor Motel. From the moment Sandi answered the phone when I made my initial enquiry I knew I would be in good hands. Nothing was too much trouble. I didn't know how long I would need to stay - "no worries; stay...

Only complaint was the bathroom was a little too retro but, it was perfectly functional and clean. Otherwise very comfortable room. Sandi was a great host. Service was above and beyond. Highly recommended as a place to stay in Dunedin.

All the reviews are true, Sandi is a fantastic host! Mum, Gran and I stayed at the Manor Motel for two nights and were not disappointed. The unit was absolutely immaculate, and kitted out with everything we needed. Sandi could not have been more helpful, with tips on where to visit and eat, put the heating on for us before...
