“Okay hotel, but there are better choices in Dunedin”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

We stayed here for five nights, this hotel was recommended as being close to the conference my husband attended. Good things: fairly quiet for a central location, queen bed was comfortable, service was helpful and friendly. However, the seals around the bath were moldy and the sofa bed provided for our five year old was incredibly uncomfortable - an adult would not sleep well on the thin matress. The shower is poorly designed so that it leaks onto the floor.

No hassles at all- booked online and got what was advertised. Hotel is older but spotless,comfortable and quiet. Staff are great- were available if required but privacy was guaranteed if you need it. I will choose this hotel again.

Travelled here for business once. Old hotel, quite musty with limited facilities. Internet was very poor. Meals were good. Hotel provided me with gym card to a local gym which was a 10 min walk up hill. The only thing I remember is that it has the worst parking in the world. There are limited spaces because it's on a hill and the spaces it has were quite tight. Would not stay here again.

I stay in a number of hotels and one thing that has struck me about this trip is the large costs for Internet access in hotel rooms and this was easily the most expensive of the lot at a shade under NZD$30 per night with a measely 300MB usage allowance. Yes, that's MB and not GB. I do >300MB on my smartphone most days! The hard stop (after a slowdown) at 1000MB (so not even 1GB = 1024MB) was also mad and the online screen that went with it comical.

Apart from the odd Internet service (online should be free in all hotels around the world) the room was functional and clean, the location is good and the staff friendly although the facilities all closing early was a bit of an irritant as I had to go back out to get a drink post 9pm on the Sunday night. Dunedin is a top town and always worth a visit, definitely check it out - but the hotel could be better value for money.

Good service, pleasant surroundings, good food, handy to the City. It's a shame I don't travel to Dunedin more often.

The hotel could use with updating. The rooms were a little dated. There is not a lot of parking available. The best part about this hotel is the restaurant. A great deal - the food was great and did not cost a lot. The hotel is average. If the rooms were updated this could be a great hotel. Very close to downtown. Good location.

Disappointed. Does not live up to the brand of Millenium hotels. Friends of ours stayed at the same time and had the same impression.
It badly needs reno and maybe front counter staff could have some customer service training.
