perfect location, great friendly host, affordable, comfortable bed with electric blankets. it was lovely place . great cleaning standards. and also got to borrow movie CD's . had a perfect stay. loved the spa bath.

Well appointed, good value, close to both city and Otago peninsula. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable beds. Free video loans. Had all that we needed. The room was clean and had good supplies of everything. Fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, great range of teas and coffee.

Average motel with very basic amenities, you cant cook although BBQ option is available outside your room, common laundry in the mood to watch movies, heaps of DVD available at reception to choose from free.The bathroom has heat light which is a plus so kind of relief on the stone-cold floor ..just opposite countdown supermarket and 10min walk to other food joints.

I have come to Dunedin on business a few times in the last year and have stayed at the Best Western each time. Love this place. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful. This was the only motel where the staff insisted on helping with my luggage! The rooms are clean, bed is very comfortable with electric blankets. Loved the spa bath!

We just stay for one day in this motel and our overall experience is good. The man on reception is a gentlemen. We need to charge our phone we asked for an adapter he provided us and the room is very clean with little kitchen. The washroom is also very clean. U can catch a bus from their to go to city centre. In room DVD player Is also there u can watch movies free by taking DVDs from reception he got lots of DVD range. Overall good to stay in beat western.

Stayed there on a business trip for a few days and the hosts were lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and history of Dunedin. The room was extremely clean and quiet especially as they are located on a busy road. Saying that as they were on a busy road, they are really close to some local eateries which were within walking distance. I have recommended that our company uses Best Western for the future.

Absolutley faulous place to stay. Richard an Sue took us in like family while we stayed there for work along with their warm and friendly staff that were always smiling they went out of their way to provide a first class service. They definitely went the extra mile to accomodate our needs without hesitation. Breakfast was perfect and so were the bbq's that they had organised for us. Room was clean, modern and the beds where so comfortable. The location is perfect 10 minutes walk to the beach or harbour and parks with a petrol sation and supermarket directly across the road. A number of other facilities in the immediate area and only minutes drive to the city center. Nice and quiet for being on the main road. Very happy would be the first place to call if I were visiting Dunedin again.

My stay at Best Western 555 on Bayview was the best ever. Sue (the host) was so thoughtful and accommodating - even after my flight was sent to Christchurch for a night. When I finally arrived, Sue had made sure my room was warm for me by putting my heater on. The room was excellent -everything in the best possible position. Extremely comfortable and clean. Couldn't believe how close to the city this is. Would highly recommend staying here! I travel a lot for business and this is definitely the best place I have stayed around NZ.

Stayed here for 3 months for work. Great little spot, close to town, fast food and resteraunts within walking distance. Run by great people who will go out of their way to make the stay enjoyable. Also mint omlette for breakfast!

We stayed during a storm which brought heavy rain, snow and very chilly temperatures. We were quickly checked in, the heater in our room was already going and in fact was on for us when we returned each evening. Breakfast was exactly what I asked for and adequate.
