A fantastic place to stay in a stylish old building, close to the center, and with a very friendly service. Nice and very complete breakfast. And with Jimmy and Sol two very friendly mascot hosts. A place I can only highly recommend!

I dislike writing negative reviews because I know this is someone's livelihood. But, I guess my view of a B&B is different than at Hulmes. Rather than a period house carefully restored, this place probably better fit a definition of hostel . We were relegated to the house next door, and while the set of rooms was clean, it was... More

Rooms large and spacious with TV, video and extensive library in dining room. Friendly staff and more than adequate breakfast. We had alternate accommodation booked and paid for elsewhere but after checking in there, went back to Hulmes rather late. They were very accommodating upgrading us for free. Made us feel like being back home. Thank you Hulmes :-)

What a singular pleasure to stay in a Dunedin icon. Why visit museums when you can stay in one. Hulmes Court smells like a museum, all is solid wood and large graceful windows. In the Forest Room the two of us were accommodated in the main house; our place had an excellent bathroom with separate toilet. Interesting guests partook of... More

Bedding not changed during the week I stayed here. I was expecting to stay in the house but was allocated to a 2nd rate house next door with poor furnishings, no music facility and generally unclean. Far better places in George or Harriet Sts. This place is not value for money

I stayed here on my roadtrip aorud the NZ South Island, what a place! Convenient location, good service, friendly staff, free wi-fi, nice views. Everything worked, no complaints, except for the steep road up after dinner...;-)

This b&b comprises 2 houses with about 8 rooms. Rooms are big and airy (flower room had some nice view out over the harbour). Some rooms have ensuites so there is rarely queues for the bathroom for the cheaper rooms that dont. Its only about 2-3 minutes walk down the the central octagan yet the area was surpisngly quiet, with... More

I hate to give a bad review as it is messing with someone's livelihood - and running a B&B is tough work. So I will start with the positive - it was clean and convenient to town with off street parking and had a cute lollipop on the bed when we arrived. They also kindly allowed us to leave our... More

Not a usual place, rooms different from each other, have a lot of character. Close to the city, didn't move my car. Nice breakfast, with a lot of fresh fruit. 2 beautiful cats live in the house, not for allergic people.

Stayed here for 1 night whilst travelling the South Island. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds that were warm enough, help yourself breakfast with quite a good choice of food and drink, great location for night life (5min walk) but away from centre so as not to be disturbed, good value for money. There were kitchen facilities to store and make food... More
