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.

The moment I stepped into the room, it felt clean and tidy. The bed was comfy. Room was bright. Plenty of space. Bathroom was basic but also sufficiently clean. The rate was very reasonable at $105per night. The only downside was next door room Tv was against our wall where the beds are and the tv was played loud I... More

Stayed at the Kingsgate for 5 nights while attending a conference. Rates are reasonable. Room was tidy and clean, however, lights were very dim. Location is good, close to town hall where the conference was and close to the Octagon. Staff were professional and friendly, however, when ever we needed to order a drink in the bar, inevidently we had... More

Very basic accommodation, which I would consider to be budget except for the price which was above what you would expect to pay. Location is good, just a couple of minutes walk from the Octagon, for restaurants and bars. Very thin walls in rooms, I was woken by someone snoring next door. Also we had a fire alarm activation at... More

I've stayed here occasionally since 2009. Service is great. Dining Room food very average - service excellent. Now there is no mini bar. Saved me a fortune but when I arrive I have always enjoyed a wine and some chips / peanuts after usually a long drive. One thing that has always annoyed me is the lack of plugs around... More
