The Up-side:- The actual hotel room is great value, decent bathroom living and bedding. Hotel staff were always pleasant and room was cleaned each day. Bit disappointed Discovery Channel was not offered. The Kingsgate is a short walk to the Octavian, I-Sight and Speight's Brewary. Walk a little further and you will hit the cadbury, railway, museum and Chinese gardens.... More

Good value for money. Basic accomodation but very good location. So many restaurants and attractions within walking distance. Nice staff. Average buffet breakfast. Free parking but can get full at times.

Nice big clean rooms with a view from the 6th floor. Parking is ok. It does have a good location to many bar and restaurants. The breakfast itself is rather over priced which is so is the internet but that is standard issue for hotels in NZ. Dunedin is a great city have fun.

I was rather disappointed with the attitude of the girl at the reception desk when my daughter and I arrived. She wasn't welcoming and she took ages to find our booking. She then just handed me the key with no mention of what direction Our room was in. We did find it eventually and found the room was nice with... More

As with many of the other reviews. I agree the hotel is dated and no free wifi is ridiculous. The meal I had in the restaurant was awful. Frozen fish that had been deep fried it managed to be overcooked and watery all at the same time. On the plus side the staff were very friendly and helpful allowing me... More

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
