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...

On entry to reception you are hit with how dated the building is but it was tidy and clean. On to level 2 we get out of the elevator that looks like an original from the 50s we noted the repairs to holes in the walls that had been patched up not painted to match the rest of the paint... More

Thanks for your feedback Hilda. Yes the hotel is an older building but we do our best to keep it well maintained. At the time of your stay we had patches on the walls because we were in the process of carrying out maintenance on the corridors, this is now complete and all painted again. I am sorry that you...

Location of the hotel is within a stones throw of the Octagon and within walking distance of many of the must see attractions in this beautiful city. The hotel decor is dated, but our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower in our room was in the bathtub so an elderly person or one with mobility issues... More

A very pleasant friendly welcome and registration, comfortable bed and room, ideal central city location - one block above Octagon - quiet neighborhood and reasonable rate. Certainly intend to stay again.
