I arrived at the Kingsgate after a long evening drive after work. I knew the hotel was full and would have to park elsewhere and that was ok as was check in. However when I got to my room it had clearly not been service. The bin had an old sandwich in it, the bed wasn't made and there were... More

Very pleasant staff. Great location - right there in the heart of Dunedin. Walking distance to train station and Cadbury factory. Amenities and cleanliness were tops. Very nice room. Would certainly return there. Good value for money.

I stayed in this hotel for the weekend from October 11 to 13. The standard rooms have two double beds in it so if you are just a lone traveler, you will sleep with the other bed empty (that is somehow freaky for me...). I raised my concern to the reception staff and I was informed that the first and... More

We stayed for two nights with our three children. The view was amazing and the rooms are modern and clean. We had a standard twin room with bathroom and also a queen junior suite with lounge, bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Plenty of room for us all and easy walking distance to the central city. Only issue was that there were... More

My standard central-city Dunedin hotel accommodation, first impressions of the slightly dated exterior belie the consistently clean & comfortable rooms, friendly service, and the sunny north-facing location a short walk from the Octagon & central city. I stayed in a 5th (top) floor junior suite - the small balcony, with sweeping views over the city, was a very pleasant spot... More

We booked Kingsgate Dunedin through a deal on GrabOne. It was in a good, central location - a perfect base for retail therapy! Spacious room, lovely bath, balcony and city views, yummy buffet breakfast. A perfect place for a weekend getaway. Would stay here again.

This hotel is in a fantastic location- really close to the Octagon. The staff were really friendly and really helpful, despite being a little understaffed. The rooms were good, had everything you needed and were nice and clean. The walls were a little thin, you could hear the people in the rooms around but this was never a problem. Overall... More

This hotel is dated, but some rooms have been renovated to a good standard. I was lucky enough to get a fresh room, but my friends room was dark and desperately in need of updating. The staff were great, restaurant not good at all and I would get breakfast elsewhere. Poached eggs on bread from a per sliced packet.......no way,... More

Perfect location for spending time in the city. Close to shops, restaurants, theatre. There is no parking in the city or at theatre so hotel location very important. Kingsgate right in town and still quiet. Very clean and comfortable. Pleasant staff. Definately recommend.
