Positive Reviews

Highly accessible location

Travellers verify that the property is situated next to New Zealand’s first university – University of Otago. Students find it convenient to stay here, given the easy access. Those interested in museums and local shops are delighted that these establishments are in close proximity. They also mention that many restaurants are just within a short distance from the property.

Fully equipped kitchen facilities

The in-room kitchen facilities are much appreciated by the guests. They indicate that the kitchen is well-equipped with the essentials to prepare meals. They are not forced to go out to a restaurant, since they can easily cook for themselves.

Spacious apartments

The rooms here are described as large and clean. The space in the units gives visitors more room for their luggage and comfortable movement.

Negative Reviews

Noise issues

Reviewers complain about the insufficient soundproofing of the apartments. Since the motel is close to a university and next to a students’ flat, noise of young people and student parties disrupt the peaceful stays of the guests.

Outmoded room furnishings

Whilst visitors appreciate the rustic theme and cleanliness of the rooms, they are bothered by the quality of the fixtures and furnishings. They critique the outmoded floorings of the rooms. Whenever they walk in the units, they hear creaking sounds. Moreover, some of the sofas and beds are reportedly displaying signs of old age.

Steep stairs

Guests who stay in units on the second floor of the building complain about the two flights of steep stairs they need to pass through. They suggest those who having mobility issues should request rooms on the ground level.
