    Great place to stay, lovely staff.This is also a great location and close to the wonderful Otago Peninsula. Close enough to the city. Very comfortable and convenient to a number of food outlets and conveniences.

    « Best Western is best »

    Stayed one night at Best Western 555 the rooms were good and clean and with double glazied windows insuring a very quiet room and spacious equipped with fast internet and it has a food store just across the road for supplies of food and drinks with cafes not too far away. It was a good Motel to relax it .

    « Good place to stay on the outskirts of town »

    We stayed here for just one night, and selected it as the location was just outside of town and on the road to the Otago Peninsula. We had a great welcome from the lady on reception, who also offered us some excellent dinner tips which we took up. No issues with parking, and the rooms were nice and spacious as well as being relatively modern too. It was a pretty bitter night too, so the heating really was nicely needed. Other than that, we didn't get disturbed by any traffic noise and had a mighty fine sleep. So if you're looking for somewhere a bit out of town, but still easy to drive into town or go to the Otago Peninsula, then the Best Western Dunedin is a decent shout.

    « Great stay »

    The owners were very welcoming, insisted on assisting with moving our luggage into the room, gave a full explanation of TV and internet services. We were with a group of approx 45 and no one appeared to have any grumbles whatsoever. Only issue was the TV would not start up next morning but we had no time to watch it anyway.

    « In Dunedin for Ed Sheeran »

    Fantastic service! Don't let the fact this hotel is on a busy road, it is all double glazed so very quiet when doors closed. Bed super king and super comfy. Extremely clean room, great facilities but the owners who greeted us on check in were so friendly and helpful and the highlight for us! They had even organised a shuttle bus to and from the Ed Sheeran concert for their guests! Also received an up to date mindfood magazine on arrival with further magazines in the room. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!

    « Nice rooms »

    A nice clean room with excellent hosts. The television was a pain as it was tricky to turn on and would sometimes lock up when you change channels The location is a few kilometres from the CBD, just too far to walk comfortably

    « Lovely motel »

    What more can be said. This hotel meets all your needs and then some. But the bonus of the warm reception and being made to feel like your staying with friends takes it up that extra notch. It was a post cyclone cold summer day in Dunedin ??. After a very long drive from Christchurch, we greatly appreciated the toasty rooms and hot water in the kettle ready to make a cup of tea upon our arrival. The room was clean. This is coming from someone that travels with their own Lysol wipes and spray. The bathroom had a big shower and good water pressure. The room is a good size and has everything you need for any length of stay. The hotel is located on a busy roundabout which was a little tricky for our first day driving in NZ...and on the left side of the road! The location is convenient to the city center and restaurants near the beach. It was a nice bonus to have the option of breakfast brought to the room. Overall we had a great stay.

    « Nice Best Western....Location not so Nice »

    We had two nights here before flying out to go back home to the States. Our first impression was not very good since you are located in the middle of an industrial area on a busy street with lots of fast food places to choose. After staying at lovely B&Bs, cottages in the country, condo's over looking lakes, mountains and oceans, this was a shock to our system. Instead, our view was under the stairway looking out at a chain saw dealership. You are not close at all to the down town city area, and parking in town was tough. We ended up navigating to the beach area for dinners, and I would recommend this if you happen to stay here. Personally, I would have tried to locate myself closer to the beach and the restaurants there. If you prefer city living, then the down town area would be another option. I'm sorry to rate this place a Poor, because the folks that run it were very nice and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable ( not overly large ). Bed was very comfortable. The location for us, especially for our final two nights in NZ was a deal breaker for us.

    « Dunedin Gem »

    What an unexpected gem with exceptional customer service at a reasonable price. Having our luggage carried up to our room, the kettle put on for a much needed cuppa and noticing the cleanliness of the room made a wonderful first impression and continued throughout our 2 day stay.

    « No complaints whatsoever »

    We stayed a couple of nights during our road tour of the South Island. Motels were a new experience for us and after staying at a few, we began to understand the essential features. This place has them all. We were allocated a ground floor room which meant that we were able to park right outside the door - very handy for unloading our luggage. From the moment of arrival we were made to feel very welcome and my wife remarked that every time you meet Sue (co-owner) she is smiling. Location is a short drive from the city centre in one direction and from local eateries in the other. Our room had TV, free Wi-fi, king size bed and tea/coffee making facilities - all you need in a motel. No hesitation in recommending this establishment to anybody undertaking a road trip.

    « Good, but overprized »

    We needed a place to stay overnight because of a concert we were attending. This was one of the few hotels/motels available. Extremely friendly reception, clean room, not big but good enough. Nothing special, but also not much wrong with it. Near a very busy roundabout, but at night the traffic dies down. Free parking and wifi. You'll need transport to the city center. However.... We understand prices go up during event weekends, but we payed more than 400 (!) bucks per night. Way to much for a venue like this. We might go back there, but not for these prices.

    « Neat spacious room with everything we need »

    The hotel exceeds my expectation, the host Sue is very friendly and helpful, she actually walks us to our room upstairs, and boils some hot water for us! The room is spacious, neat & clean and has everything we need, even a thoughtful porcelain coaster on the bed side table!

    « Friendly and accommodating staff »

    What an awesome hotel! The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. We arrived late and had to leave early the next day. The reception stayed open for us to check-in and even provided us breakfast so we wouldn't leave in the morning hungry. That is really going out of the way. The room was clean and well stocked. Parking was plenty. No problems at all.

    « Stay Here »

    My girlfriend and I vacationed to New Zealand in December of 2017 and loved the trip. Our first stop was Dunedin and this hotel. We didn't realize how long the trip from the Christchurch airport and ended up arriving a day later than we booked. As soon as we checked in the female owner of the hotel dropped everything and said,"I was so worried." Apparently she had stayed up later than usual because we had not checked in at our prescribed time. While we were taking care of the paperwork, the first day there, she immediately offered us breakfast and made sure we had everything we could possible need. No hotel in the US would have give a second thought about us. We were also dealing with lost baggage at this point in our trip. I informed the owners that they would be shipping my bag to us at the hotel. After a day of sight seeing we came back to our room. While walking to it the gentleman owner ran, and I am ran, out of the office and yelled, "They found your bag." The customer service was beyond anything I could have expected. On top of all of this, I don't think I have met a nicer pair of individuals working in the hotel industry. The husband and wife team were always welcoming and I doubt they ever stopped smiling. Side note, they have a really nice dog who wonders the property and loves to "greet" the guests. Overall if I ever have the opportunity to come back to New Zealand, and Dunedin, I will, without a doubt, stay here.

    My friend and I stayed here on Friday night. The owner, Sue was fantastic as was Jason. She arranged our transport to the concert via Jason who also kindly picked us up making everything so easy for us. Our room was spacious, very clean and we couldn't fault the place. Thanks for the great hospitality!!

    Average motel with very basic amenities, you cant cook although BBQ option is available outside your room, common laundry area.you 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.

    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.

    « Fantastic Hosts »

    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.

    « Excellent and handy to everything »

    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.

    « The best stay ever! »

    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.

    « Warm, comfortable haven in storm »

    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.

    Just hubby and I visiting family. Lovely room. Large comfortable bed. Always the room cleaned and heater on for our return. Perfect place for us and what we were needing. Our room had a fridge, jug, toaster and microwave. Excellent water pressure in the shower. Double glazing so minimal outside noise and warmth kept in.

    I love this motel. It is close to the shipping port where I work all hours of the day or night. The owners always make sure I am looked after, with my shift work coming and goings. They spoil me rotten and I am very apprecitive of the extra mile they go. Max is a wee sweetie pooch whom I always look forward to seeing. The motel is comfortable, warm, clean, excellent parking with a friendly crew. Id never stay anywhere else while in Dunedin. Thank you and see you again very soon.

    « Richard & Sue were so helpful »

    My husband and I called at this motel early evening but unfortunately it was fully booked. We asked Rucahrd and Sue the owner/managers, whether there was another Best Western in the vicinity. Unfortunately there wasn't but they were so helpful and checked the Internet for available rooms elsewhere. RIchard set up an online booking for us at another hotel and printed off the booking confirmation for us. They were so friendly and helpful. Although we were not able to see a room, with them being fully booked, we were certainly given first class service from Richard and Sue and would most certainly call on them again if we are in the area. Thank you both - by the way, the hotel you booked for us lived up to our expectations!

    « GREAT PLACE TO STAY »

    What a lovely little place to stay. Here for 2 weeks for business. Although the downside was no cooking facilities, there is plenty of places to choose from, and not expensive either. What was great after a long day of work and it being very cold - I came back to my unit and they had turned the night light on and the heater was on. Very welcoming and very friendly approachable staff. Countdown over the road for basic necessities, plenty of takeaways up the road, unit had a spa bath, microwave, and a very comfortable huge bed !!! Thanks guys for making my stay memorable and with your knowledge of the area, it made my stay away from home great. The cooked breakfasts were amazing !

    « Perfect place to come back to at the end of the day »

    I had an incredibly relaxing stay here. Its central location made it ideal for both popular destinations (tunnel beach, albatross colony, and penguins) and the excellent restaurants in town center. The manager was very kind and welcoming and made sure I was well taken care of. Thanks Sue!!

    The welcome was warm and friendly and the hosts Sue and Richard couldn't do enough for us. Richard even drove us to the theatre!! The room was pleasant, spacious and clean. A supermarket across the street and lots of interesting restaurants a short walk away(will try them out next trip). We had a great breakfast delivered to the room the next morning with a cheery greeting and 'take your time no need to rush away'. Real value for money. We will most certainly return.

    Richard and Sue were most gracious taking our last minute booking and kindly arranging an early check-in for us, even though we were in Dunedin only one night.

The beds are super comfortable with fabulous pillows! Thank you!

    Richard & Sue Hanning are just the best hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were absolutely lovely, clean and warm. The breakfasts were lovely and great value too. We would highly recommend this motel to anyone travelling to Dunedin. The added touch of going into our room and closing curtains and turning on the heater for us each night was really appreciated, along with looking after our laundry and finding it all folded and waiting in our room on our return. You guys made a very emotional time much easier for us. Thank you Richard & Sue.

    From the friendly hosts through to the beautiful neutral decor this is my favourite place to stay in Dunedin. Richard, Sue and Jason are always welcoming and friendly and provide a top notch service. The rooms are peacefully decorated in warm neutral colours and contain everything one needs. The bed is enormous and very comfortable. The room is super clean and very quiet. There are sport channels included with the TV package and they have DVDs to borrow in the reception area which are fairly current. I have stayed here numerous times and I cannot fault it. I usually only stay one night at a time but would happily stay longer.

    We spent two nights at the Best Western on Bayview. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was basic, but spotless and comfortable. The perfect place for a short stay in Dunedin. Despite being on a major road the rooms were quiet. Close to the supermarket and other fast food chain stores. You do need transport if you want to explore the Dunedin CBD and wider Dunedin area. The rooms had facilities for making tea and coffee, a microwave and toaster. If you need a friendly place for a short stay this is ideal.

    We had a two night stay. We were very warmly welcomed and given advice as to what to do and places to eat nearby. Our room had basic cooking facilities and we found the big supermarket across the road to be a great asset.The room was very clean and comfortable, we did find it quite warm at night though and fan was not terribly effective in reducing this. When going into town, we used the local bus service as there is a stop right outside the motel. With hindsight, I would have booked a hotel closer to the city centre although this did the job well enough for a short stay.

    « Very Clean »

    We stayed here two nights and the staff were very friendly. We had a two room unit with a queens size bed in on room and two beds in the other room. Both rooms had a T.V. set but they both had different channels available. There was a microwave and toaster available also a small fridge. I think that it was a bit on the expensive side seeing there was no cooking facilities only the microwave. Looking at other accommodation in Dunedin you can get a fully serviced apartment for around the same price. It was very clean and quiet seeing that it is on a major road There is a supermarket across the road and also a Couplands Bakery just down from the supermarket. There is a laundry on site but didn't use it. Max the motel dog is very friendly and welcomed each guest when they arrive.

    Sue and Richard were again very good hosts during our almost three week stay. We have stayed for an extended period two other times and each visit they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. This time Sue had to make some changes since there was a scheduling problem that we probably created. Again showing concern for all of her customers. I would highly recommend the 555 Best Western in Dunedin.

    During our stay of 5 plus nights, our hosts were extremely accommodating and assisted all members of our party. Rooms were well appointed and clean, couldn't fault them, hospitality staff polite and very helpful. Each room was equipped with at least a microwave, crockery and cutlery, enabling some basic food preparation purchased from the large supermarket 100m across the road. Further up the road were a couple of specialty wine stores as well. Internet was free! Would stay there again.

Incredibly comfortable beds, great showers (the 2 most important things!), the most friendly yet professional receptionist we have encountered for a long time, excellent room service breakfasts, well appointed and spotlessly clean rooms. I will definitely stay here on my next visit and will recommend to anyone I know that is visiting Dunedin. It is also very well situated with a supermarket and bakery and lots of eateries within a short stroll. Disabled friendly units available which was great for my elderly mother as there was a wet room with seat in the shower. Absolutely the best accommodation at a very reasonable price.

    « Great service & great comfort »

    My hosts couldn't have done more for me and made me feel right at home. I only stayed one night but will definitely be back. Absolutely perfect for business travel as well as general travel accommodation.

    « Excellent stay and well situated for excursions to Otago Peninsula »

    The room was very neat and tidy. The hotel owners were extremely welcoming and helpful (for example helping me with a load of laundry at the end of my rail trail ride). They also provided me with maps and advice on things to do and see. The hotel was also a convenient access point for some cycling rides on the Otago Peninsula.

    « Quality Service & Accommodatiom »

    The motel is well appointed, clean and the the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough for us, e.g. advising and assisting when our car broke down, and running us into town.

    The unit was fresh and clean although there was a bad smell in the bathroom coming through a floor drain that obviously hadn't been cleaned for a while. The bedroom was roomy and had a TV Wifi was free. Beds were comfy and spacious. The motel was very handy for our needs. Staff were helpful and friendly

    « Perfect location »

    This is our second visit to 555 on Bayview and if we don't need to stay in the central City it is a perfect location close to St Kilda beach and surrounds. Although on a main thoroughfare it is so quiet with plenty of off-street parking. Jason on Reception made us so welcome and offered us a choice of units. These are always spotlessly clean and well presented and the beds and pillows are extremely comfortable. Electric blankets are provided and the room and bathroom heating is good. The Good Oil cafe has opened up in the garden centre across the road which is always great for coffee or breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to 555.

    « Friendly and Comfortable spot to stay »

    We stayed 2 nights travelling around NZ. Spacious rooms, super beds, free parking and wi-fi. Very friendly and helpful hosts Sue and Richard, noting was a problem. Also great breakfast. Handy location to access Beach and Peninsula and plenty of services close by. Would recommend this Best Western.

    « so clean! »

    a very friendly gentlemen welcomed us here to a spic and span room. the bed was nice and warm (some pillows a bit hard for my wife), electric bed warmers, excellent hidef tv, free wifi (which played up ever so often), really, really, really clean bathroom, clean kitchen, lots of DVDs to choose from, free car parking. Location is 8 minutes drive from town which is the price you pay for free car parking I guess.

    « Another Great Stay! »

    In Dunedin for family function with my partner and on return visit to 555 got a big friendly welcome from Jason. Lovely, clean room which, while we were out Jason had turned on electric blankets and heater which was really appreciated on a chilly Dunedin nite. Love staying here really convenient location for us.

    « Friendly Staff, Clean and Comfortable Rooms »

    We stayed here with a High School Basketball team and absolutely loved it. Its location was perfect for us, as were the comfortable and clean rooms and friendly staff. Do not fear - teams staying here is a very rare event, we were the exception, not the rule. Even though the hotel was at full capacity the atmosphere was relaxed and quiet, and would be very well suited to business guests and travelling professionals. The owners and staff were super friendly and accommodating, even coming to watch our boys play a couple of games! I highly recommend this hotel.
