Booked ourselves a room at this hotel. We arrived in a Thursday and departed on Sunday morning. Our room was spacious and the bed was most comfortable. The room was warm, and we were able to set the temperature control to our liking.the check in and out was efficient with no delays. A great place to stay.

We were on the 6th floor. Staying in Dunedin during a particularly cold snap, we appreciated the warm room and comfortable super king bed. The bed had a feather and down-filled topper which was soft but didn't stop the bed feeling supportive. There was a fair bit of early-hours noise from the street below but as it was the evening...

This hotel is well located just 5 mins walk from the Otagon - the heart of Dunedin. The rooms are huge and have very large big windows. We weren't street facing and had no noise issues at all. We really liked the comfortable bed and lovely sheets/pillows. The bathroom is fairly plain but very clean and functional. It has a... More

We arrived on the evening of the rugby so accommodation was short and despite advertising a website price when calling for a room they were only offering rooms at 'rack rate' - so a good $300+ which should mean a fine room, excellent service and breakfast. On arrival the short term parking pay was taken so we had to wait... More

We have stayed here several times & always had good experiences, however that was not the case this visit. The room was facing Princes Street & we found it very noisy! There also seemed to be a draught, we think coming from the windows but not positive. I was sleeping in the bed closest to the window so for me... More

This was a walk-in off the street as accommodation had not been booked. Reception was not overly thrilled to have another paying customer late at night, so the welcome and experience were rather bland. The room was clean and tidy, and quite roomy. One let down was the TV channel selection, hoping to watch State of Origin, but only Sky... More
