Great location for hotel, walking distance to octagon. Got the rooms on special on the 6th floor and facing the back street. Lots of light and commodities. Only a bit noisy...they might have some machinery on roof and hear noise and some slight vibration, we did not feel it at night.

Being in New Zealand for several months, we wanted to see the South Island. The culture in New Zealand is more to utilize storefront travel agencies and less online brokers, so we went to Flight Center (the fast food of travel agencies). They made arrangements for a night's stay in Dunedin at the Park Regis. Great name and I was... More

when checking in we were greeted with a 15 dollar car park fee to a car park 200 meters away from the motel The room while clean was very old and worn. The leather chair had lost most of its leather from wear and tear. The old style lift where you have to open the door yourself, while quaint, when... More

Close to Octagon, walking distance to a great variety of amenities. Daughter slept over & walked to lectures, met up for brunch - a great chance to catch up & purchase more winter woollies!! Especially welcome was the warm room on check in.

Apart from not being able to find car parking space at the start everything else was great. Distance from theatre within walking distance, room service was prompt and staff super polite and friendly. No problem with traffic or street noise.

Great service, and comfortable to work from the room for a couple of hours... room was very spacey with the only downfall being the noise of lift in the am hours... Location wise, you can't really get more central than what this Hotel offers.

Good location. ideal for a business trip. My room was on the top floor, which was a bit difficult to carry suitcases up and down since the lift does not go to the top floor. Clean, comfortable, but basic.
