“Flawless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Stayed for a night with my friends and this place is flawless. Hidden off the main high street, as many other reviewers have said, this place is awesome. Beautifully furnished, a real home away from home. You can tell the staff are passionate about what they do, would 100% stay again if I was to return to Dunedin.

This is the establishment that other establishments should visit to see how it is done....and done properly! Everything was spot-on - the decor (lovely muted greys) the size of the room, the equipment ( washing/drying/cooking/coffee making etc) the bathroom, the linen, the bed, the staff. The walk to the other end of town, along the main street is very pleasant with many little shops and eateries along the way. Very enjoyable indeed - can't recommend more highly.

This boutique accommodation was one of the highlights in our round-the-world trip, it was so nice.
from the moment you walk into reception you are greeted with the most gorgeous and stylish property. We highly recommend this property. I posted a photo of the spa bath on Facebook at the time we were there because it was so huge, I couldn't reach the taps without climbing in!!

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it excellent. The units were well equipped - first time ever we have had a unit with it's own washing machine/tumble dryer; what a great idea. The units were immaculate and the service was warm and welcoming. The views from the unit balcony were gorgeous and the motel is well placed for walking down George Street to the shops and cafes, while the Otago Museum is just round the corner and well worth a visit. We would recommend this motel to anyone planning a visit to Dunedin.

We have stayed at Bluestone on George on a number of occasions. It is very comfortable, well appointed, immaculately kept, excellent service - cannot recommend highly enough. Neville and Sandra are welcoming and helpful hosts who keep a lovely establishment. Helen West, Wellington

This place is excellent and puts many chain and 5 star hotels to shame.

Rooms very clean and modern and lovely bathroom including spa in our room.

Takes about 10 or 15 mins to walk to Octagon in the Centre but its a pleasant walk along a main street packed with shops, bars and restaurants so not really an issue.

There is also a small kitchen in room as well as washing facilities so you get much more than a normal hotel room.

When back in Dunedin this place will be top of the list.

Recently stayed for one night at bluestone. We arrived early on the off chance our room would be ready but it wasn't. I was happy to come back later but the owner suggested that if we wait for 10 minutes he would ensure the room was ready. He raced off to give the cleaners a hand. That's service! Beautiful room with a lovely outlook over the city and to the hills. The accommodation is set back from the street so it is very quiet. The room was immaculate. The spa bath was luxurious. Lastly, we encountered several staff during our brief stay and they all engaged in polite, friendly conversation. I highly recommend Bluestone to anyone looking for upmarket accommodate in Dunedin.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first level have access to outdoor terrace which would be great in summer.
