A Home Away From Home

Dear Pam and John

Can you believe that we’ve been back in Perth for over two months now!  How time flies!  We had a wonderful time in New Zealand – wish we were back there right now! We would like to thank you very much for showing us great hospitality and offering us advice on sights and events in Dunedin and surrounds.  Pam’s computerised “tiki tour” was very informative and she showed much pleasure in presenting it to us.

Your motel rooms were delightful – clean comfortable and well equipped – like being home – and we would readily recommend you to one and all. Once again thank you for your warmth and assistance. Hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

Also if you are ever in Perth do not hesitate to contact us.

Kindest regards,
Lina and Chris Gondinoudis,

A Real Little Gem!

Thanks so much for your awesome accommodation – one of the very best places we’ve  stayed in over the years.  We spend a lot of time on the road working. We hope to be back again soon!  Please accept a little token of appreciation.**

Kind regards
Liz & Siegfried Grassner

Lovely Accommodation – Definitely Value for Money!

Thank you for a wonderful stay.  Lovely accommodation, definitely value for money.  Hope to stay again

Nice touch drawing the blinds and turning lights on for a warm welcome.

Thank You.

Heather, Lauder.

Quiet and Comfortable

Clean and comfortable motel on the outskirts of town – approximately 1 mile from the centre.
Friendly staff and good value for money.


Excellent Value for Money

We have stayed in Dunedin at least ten times over the past few years and have booked reservations in B and B’s and hotels in all price ranges.

We decided that what was important to us most is a clean and friendly place.

While the Tourist Court Motel was built the 70’s, it has been tastefully updated.

The owner are extremely friendly and accommodating (they made sure the rooms were toasty warm when we arrived on a cold winter day).

And, at how many motels in this price range do you get a morning newspaper delivered to your door?
Most importantly, the rooms were spotlessly clean and incredibly spacious.

The room came with a complete kitchen, separate sitting area, and free wireless internet.

I have already booked again with them for our next trip to Dunedin.

Mercer Island, Washington

Cutest Little Place to Stay!

This place is run by the nicest, most helpful couple.

We stopped in to check availability, and since it was graduation, all they had open was their budget room.

It was small, but the space was utilized and decorated so well, we didn’t mind!

The room also had a fantastic flat screen TV and DVD player (much appreciated since it did rain that night and stayed in).

Conveniently located about a 15 minute walk to the Octagon.

    We booked our room from America while planning our trip to Dunedin and are glad we selected Tourist Court Cottages! The rooms were clean as was the well-stocked kitchen (pots, pans, utensils, silverware, plates, etc) and we were quite comfortable during our stay.

    John and Pam were very helpful, even booking our visits to Dunedin’s sights before we arrived! Fabulous hosts!

    My only complaint would be a need for carpet in the lounge, but that’s a minor flaw and easily corrected with a throw rug. There are plenty of restaurants and food shops nearby and lots to see within a short walking distance.

    We will definitely stay there again and recommend Tourist Court Cottages to our fellow travelers.

      Thank You Gordon & Dorothy for your kind words.

      We agree with you comments of the carpet in KIng George Cottage and are on the lookout for suitable rugs.

      Gordon is so right, there is no bad time to visit NZ and Dunedin.

    One quick addition: we visited in mid-September, the weather was great most days. We have been to NZ in October, November and December and encountered all sorts of weather, so we can’t recommend any best time to visit. However, Gordon is a native Kiwi and we both agree, there’s no bad time to visit NZ and Dunedin was fabulous!
