This is a good hotel but my reason for Average is the noise levels between rooms is pretty bad. The staff, rooms, beds and overall ambiance is very good but no matter how quiet people try to be it comes through the walls too easily and if you're light sleeper then you'd have problems. Oh yes if you want to... More

For the price it was ok. The lighting in the room was pathetic thou and the beds are very small meaning the first night of our holiday was spent in separate beds like school camp. The service and staff were very friendly and is nice and central to the city centre

It sits in pride of place on the hill behind the Octagon/Moray Place circles of Dunedin. It has served many a business traveler and proud parents of graduates of the University. As many say the location is optimal, the rooms and surround tidy but dated. It does the job in a workman like fashion. No complaints no salutes.

Stayed two nights, bed great, shower ok, rooms big enough, the hotel is old but in good order and well looked after, the restaurant looks dowdy but serves up a great feed, recommended the lamb shanks, the breakfast menu is average, its only 200 meters down the hill to the centre of town, value for Money to stay here.

This is a very dated hotel with quite difficult parking (not many parking spaces and very steep - not so easy with suitcases). We stayed for two nights and had a room with a really nice view over Dunedin with a large deck. The rooms although dated are very clean. The major downside to this room was the noise, you... More

We weren't sure what to expect, judging by the reviews, but were totally rapt by the room, the view, the food and the service. All the staff we encountered, from the receptionists to the housekeepers to the F&B personnel, were all happy and cheerful, as well as interactive (absolutely essential !). The quality of the room was higher than we'd... More

The soundproofing in the rooms were terrible. One could hear the slightest conversation in the next room, water pipe noises and water flushing as well whenever your next door neighbour uses their bathroom. We requested if a different room would help but was given a knowing grin and told all rooms are the same. Would not go back again because... More

This hotel was perfect for our one nights stay. Although we had stayed here before. Location is perfect as a base. Room was spacious enough for the 2 of us although there was 2 queen beds in the room. The price was a good for location. This hotel is on a hill. Our room had a great view of Dunedin... More

We booked a standard double room but were given a "twin share" which had 2 double beds so this was great. The room we had was clean & modern & had double glazing (not all the rooms have this) so was lovely & quiet. Nice views, super friendly staff & close to the centre of town. Plenty of choice for...
