Esplanade MOtel

the esplanade is waiting

Your Dunedin ocean view motel accommodation, Esplanade Motels are situated on Dunedin’s esplanade, just minutes from the city centre. Overlooking St Clair’s sweeping surf beach, we offer apartment accommodation with one and two bedroom units, sleeping one to seven people. Our 4 one bedroom apartments lead onto private balconies overlooking the million dollar beach views , whilst the Heritage Character House offer 3 two-bedroom apartments ideal for groups or families, one with a partial ocean view.

ABOUT THE LOCATION

Completely renovated December 2021.

Keen to try surfing? Check out the Surf School, situated right on the beach! Or maybe you would prefer a more leisurely activity, Esplanade Motels’ location makes it the perfect Dunedin motel accommodation to just laze, go for a walk or swim, or indulge in a gorgeous lunch. At the southern end of the beach is St Clair hot salt water heated swimming pool, a must for visitors, open annually from October to March Dunedin Spring Summer months. This unique pool is nestled within rocks just metres from the ocean. In 2004 the sea wall was refurbished to provide a modern, wide esplanade, with steps leading down to the beautiful sandy beach.

Explore the esplanade and choose from the great range of restaurants and bars catering for every occasion, from a quiet morning coffee taking in views of the Southern Ocean, to a lively night out in a fantastic seaside setting. There is also a remodelled playground for children.

St Clair Beach is a ten minute drive from the Dunedin city centre, or hop on one of the local buses that run regularly from the beach to the city.

Under new management.
