“Great stay with large & comfy room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2009

Albatross Inn has apparently been renovated recently as everything is in good condition and looks fresh. We selected a spacious room that had a kitchenette, small dining area and comfortable chairs for reading. The large bed provided a good sleep. Breakfast was excellent with different sorts of cereals, fresh bread, cheeses, fresh fruit salad etc. The place is 20 minutes by foot from the city center.

Walking in the door was like walking back in time.
The rooms were elegant with lots of oak furnishings. The brass bed reminded me of the old movie "Bedknobs and Broomsticks".
A real bath!!!
Free internet access was a huge +
Fresh made blueberry muffins for breakfast!!! Was only there one night but would go back at the drop of a hat.
Lovely hostess, great local knowledge, recommended great restaurant.

Large comfortable rooms, excellent continental breakfast - yoghurt, homemade breads, fresh fruit, jams, honey and muesli. Free internet access in reception. Home is in quiet area within walking distance of the University, the Octagon, the Railway Station or city bus stop is a block away. Host Glynis is well informed on the area and most helpful with recommendations on tours, rental cars, restaurants, etc.

We stayed one night on our trip to the south. The inn is in a charming old house, well maintained. It is close to the university, and city centre is not far, but we did use the car.
The friendly host gave us good advice about the trip to Albatross Centre. We liked the breakfast. Free use of an internet connected PC came in handy for checking e-mails and udating our travel blog.

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Albatross during our visit to Dunedin. Hostess Glynis could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The Albatross is a fairly large (7 or more rooms) B&B-style inn located a few hundred yards out of the main part of Dunedin. It's an old house that has been modernized some. But we found it clean and comfortable. Our room was adequate in size and quiet and the bathroom was modern and efficient. The bed, in fact, was probably the most comfortable we had in NZ. The breakfast is continental but varied and was fine for us. There is Internet access. Parking is a bit of an issue as there are only three spaces. But Glynis will find you a place on the street if the need arises and it was not a problem for us. For the money and given the location, it is a great place for a nice stay in Dunedin.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2008

The Albatross Inn is located in a charming old Victorian house. We wanted just a room for the night and the manager was so nice to show us several rooms we could choose from. Since they all vere very nice (being freshly redone a few months before) - furnished with antiques, very clean, ensuite bathrooms - we settled for the smallest room. The breakfast was very good, including fresh homemade bread and homemade muffins. The next day we found out that we had to spend another night in Dunedin and asked the manager if we could extend our stay in the same room. There was some maintanance to be done in there, though (not our fault ;) ), so she gave us a bigger room with sofa and kitchenette for the same price as the small one. All in all, the Albatross In is a great "original Dunedin" experience - plus, it's just a short walk from the city's main attractions, restaurants and bars.

We stayed here for one night as we passed through Dunedin. It's a large victorian house fitted out with loads of authentic victorian features. The room we were in was very spacious, comfortable and well appointed. There was a large flat screen tv, kitchenette, sofa area and ensuite bathroom. It's a 10min walk down the road straight into the town centre which is really handy for grabbing a meal in the evening. We really enjoyed our stay here, the place has got some real charm and the owner was really friendly.
