Booked online, one of our priorities was onsite parking which this hotel advertises. When we arrived late afternoon we found there was very limited parking and all the available spaces were full. The room was adequate but the walls were paper thin meaning we heard every word of conversation from the family on the other side and every cry of... More

We stayed at the Kingsgate when visiting Dunedin Uni open day. Great location with good parking and a good price for a basic hotel. Clean and tidy and the staff were helpful - would stay again for this type of trip.

we stayed here for one night, the experience was so so. It was after driving 5 hours from lincoln and a tour to larnach castle we then checked in. The staff was quite friendly, but when we took a nap, the fire alarm went on, and we had to wake our wee one up, and ran downstairs, it wasn't good... More

Close to Octagon with nice view from the balcony. Large clean room and friendly service. Great value. Worth the short uphill walk to reception from the car park as the entire hotel is elevated and in a great spot. No free wifi and stairs faster than elevator but very nice place to enjoy Dunedin.

Been to this hotel a few times and haven't been overly impressed so this time I thought I'd have a better look and work out what it is I was unimpressed about. So from the get go the car park is downhill from reception which is odd . If you have bags and baggage it's a real struggle. Given its... More

Location of Kingsgate hotel was good, however, the climb to reception was a bit steep, not good for the Senior citizens that we have in our group. We got rooms 103, 111, 112, 114. Reception was good, as they heeded to our request to amend room of my mother who got injured during our Christchurch trip, managed to get a... More

the hotel should make it known that there is a steep climb from carpark to reception area not good for older people or injured people to be lugging suitcases up it..room should've been a lot cleaner..wasn't comfortable sleeping in the bed as it didn't feel clean.. we wouldn't use the kettle as it looked liked someone had been heating up...

Stayed here one night. Check in was easy enough, they managed to organise a parking spot as there were none left. Room/bathroom was clean. Hotel is a bit dated and tired, but more than adequate. Breakfast was included in room price and was good. Very convenient to city centre with definitely is worthwhile. Would consider staying here again.
