“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Beautiful interiors, great views, great location, most comfortable beds we've managed to find so far. The bathroom was lovely as well.
The only negatives - very noisy, you can hear the people in the rooms next to you in the shower etc, and the TV was surprisingly small. I know not many people go on holidays to watch TV, but we love watching a movie in bed after a big day/night and the TV was TINY!!!!
The owners were away, and the manager Joanna was very helpful and friendly, we were able to make our booking via email contact only. Nice little selection of DVDs, laptop in the reception area where everyone can use the Internet, even if they don't have their own device. The wifi was not free, but that seems to be a common trend in NZ. There were lots of little things that we really appreciated, like the note book in the reception area with brief , to the minute reviews of local eateries.
We definitely enjoyed our stay, Dunedin is a great city and Bluestone on George was right in there.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a 3rd level room for good views of the city

In my trip to the South Island of NZ, this is the best motel I stayed. The room is clean and comfortable, staff is polite and helpful. In checking out, the gentleman offered to me to keep my car in the car park so that I could walk to the city centre without the hazzle of looking for car park space on the busy street.

We stayed one night in a Premier Apartment. This complex is lovely and almost like new. Stylish from the moment you drive up the driveway with perfectly manicured hedges and gardens. The reception area and guests lounge is very welcoming and modern. The room was well appointed, with a kitchenette, underfloor heating in the bathroom and huge spa bath. King size bed was very comfortable with quality linen. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in something more pleasant than your average city hotel room. Excellent location very close to city centre and hospital. The owners were away but the lady who looked after us was very friendly and professional. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed one night here and thought that it was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff and a large comfortable room. It is very well located for restaurants and bars down George street, but also very quiet and peaceful.

We stayed here during the winter, so were thankful that it had a washer/dryer as when we came back after a long day it was much appreciated..We had a front facing room overlooking the driveway to George St from our balcony. I cannot commend this complex highly enough, as the rooms were spotless and I did watch them making up another room and actually saw that they remove all the bed linen including the matress and pillow protectors - now how many hotels have you ever seen do that, I never have and I've been in hundreds of hotels. The kitchen is fully equiped with all the utensils that you could ever wish for (if you are going to cook) The bathroom was also spotless.. this place makes sure that they meet their own high quality standards for all their clients... if you are looking for a place to stay in this town, then I cannot recommend this toooo highly..I would definitely make a return visit here.
