“A top quality stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stayed here twice now, lovely rooms with quality fit out . Very handy to town and uni, we stayed for my sons graduation. It was warm comfortable and very clean. Great to have washing machines in the rooms . Free wifi was awesome. Great bath, wouldn't want to be too frail tho as is quite a step into have a shower. Definatly stay again.

This was probably the best hotel out of our 3 week stay in New Zealand. The rooms were great, comfortable, spacious with a great view over the city. Good location at the end of the main street very close to bars, restaurants, takeaways. Staff were very friendly.

One point to note is reception isn't open all night so if you call when it's closed you get directly through to the manager who doesn't appreciate this much if you call late! Also, the spa bath doesn'twork after 11pm(although in our case it didn't work at 10pm either which was disappointing:( )

All in all a fab stay at a great place.

We stayed at the Bluestone on George for 2 nights in March whilst the test match was on. We hadn't realised this when we booked and thought it might be a bit noisy, but not a bit! we found the hotel to be very quiet and the room (a premier studio appt) very clean, and spacious with modern facilites that include everything you could want for your stay. As we had been travelling for over 2 weeks it was also a bonus to find a washer/drier in the room so we could do all our washing for free! They even provided the washing powder! The bed was extremely comfortable with good quality linen.

The hotel is central for the many actvities in Dunedin which are all within walkable distances. We would definitely recommend staying at the Bluestine on George. And, if you have time, we would also recommend a trip on the Taeiri Gorge railway and a visit to Dunedin's Botanical gardens where you can get a great cup of coffee!

We stayed for two nights at Bluestone on George. The hosts are very accomodating (particularly considering we misjudged our arrival time and did arrive well outside reception times - their understanding was most appreciated). They are also very knowledgable about the region and happy to assist. The room was nicely appointed and beautifully cleaned. Bathroom was large and the spa a lovely touch. Having washing and drying facilities was great for us as we were nearing the end of our trip.

Bluestone is a little bit out of the main center of town but still within pleasant walking distance.

My most recent stay proved, as expected, that the establishment is worthy of the complimentary rating they enjoy.

Modern, will appointed apartment (402) with spa bath, large flat screen tv and very comfortable beds met my expectations completely.

I would highly recommend this establishment to both business and recreational traveller.

I have stayed at Bluestone On George on a number of occasions, at least 4 previous, and have always been very happy with my stay. This, most recent, visit, is no different.

Room Tip: 402 was excellent.

Beautiful modern apartment style hotel in the heart of Dunedin. Our apartment had a wonderful view of the city & the most comfortable bed you could ask for. The hosts were fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. We would definitely recommend this as the place to stay.

We spent 6 nights here in March for the cricket. It is a lovely place, spotlessly clean and very modern. The host and hostess were delightful and extremely helpful. Washing/drying machine in room and drying rack available. Internet access Would definitely recommend.
