“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Not much to add to the other reviews. We based our booking on the Tripadvisor feedback, and were not disappointed. Modern, clean and well-equipped (even a Fitness room was available). Once you negotiate the rather steep carpark, everything is perfect for a short stay. It is about 15 mins walk to the centre of Dunedin. The immediate surroundings are near the University, and so the shops/bars/restaurants are a little downmarket - but not sleazy. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Well situated. New and very clean and comfortable. Small kitchenette with microwave, stove and washing machine a great addition. Friendly reception/owner. Parking on site. Limited free internet. Only downside was that the bathroom was small and cramped, with much of the space being taken up by a large spa-bath. The bathroom would have been better with a walk in shower or standard bath/shower arrangement. Recommended.

This was the best accommodation we have had on our 5 week stay in NZ so far. The room was immacculate. The location is very good. The kitchenette is very well equipped and the washing machine is a huge plus on a long trip. The decor was very nice and relaxing.
We recommend this hotel without any concerns.

I stay at Bluestone for work and is my place of choice for Dunedin. The service and amenities are fantastic. Everything has been thought of and well presented. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The beds are so comfortable it makes it hard to get out of bed in the morning!!

We spent 5 nights at the Bluestone on George and very highly recommend it.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, the rooms extremely well equipped and comfortable and the service first class.

Excellent!

We only stayed one night but this is a very nice upmarket motel. A recent build so the decor is modern and the rooms and facilities very clean. A lovely bathroom with spa bath and friendly owners. The location was great and we walked to the stadium in 10 minutes. Plenty of good cafes nearby.

We chose this place based on other Tripadvisor reviews and it did not fail to live up to them. It's close to the town centre and as you arrive, there is a steep driveway taking you up to the hotel reception. There are a couple of disabled spots next to the receptions, one of which they kindly reserved for us (one of our group is disabled). We welcomed at reception and given 2 adjoining rooms (201 and 202) which each had a double and single bed. Perfect for what we needed. The hotel is 6-7 years old but looks brand new as it is so well maintained. You walk into a full kitchenette with in room washer/dryer (and free detergent). To the left is a beautiful bathroom with spa bath and ahead is the main room with sofa, TV etc. WiFi up to 200 Mb was free but that's all we needed. The room was so nice and clean and the place so friendly we didn't want to move on but we had to. They kept our luggage for us whilst we went on the Taeri Gorge Railway and even rang ahead for us to check where we could park and how much it would be.

Are there any negatives - well there is no in room safe and no air conditioning but that doesn't stop me from giving it 5/5 and this is the place we'd choose to come back to again.
