To begin with the floor in the rooms were not level. Sounds crazy but they slewed towards the corridor. This was very noticeable even when laying down. We asked for a non-smoking room in our booking some weeks before-hand. Our room was anything but! The street rooms were noisy and the rooms themselves were very 50's and the noise from...

This hotel is situated on a major road, trucks and cars roar down the road. The room I was in had curtains which provided no insulation and the sash windows were not insulated. If you want a decent nights sleep take earplugs.

The hotel is a heritage building with some great antique features within and an interesting history, but it appeared much of the grandeur has been lost. The location was good, close to the railway station and within a few blocks to the Octagon and city centre, the theatre and a couple of two supermarkets. The university was a bit further...

I have to say this place was very dated and run down. We were very surprised that such a central and well used place has not been cared for and restored. It looks shabby and unclean. The beds were very old and soft. The linen was of poor quality and dated. The pipes make a horrendous noise when you run...

We love this hotel. Very reasonably priced right in the centre of Dunedin with free parking and Wi-Fi. We had a large room with small kitchenette and lounge area. Laundry facilities are available. Meals are excellent and large. There is a bicycle storage area and the hotel is a 5 minute walk to the station and CBD. However traffic noise...

The Leviathan Hotel saved our life! Dunedin was fully packed with students and their families on the eve of the new university year, and we looked for a room everywhere with no success. We even had dinner in a petrol station bar because our accomodation quest lasted for hours and it was too late to look for an open restaurant....

I wasn't thrilled with the manager of this hotel. I asked three times for a heater for my bedroom because it was so cold but it didn't come. Otherwise, it's not a bad location, central and close to the city. Traffic noise is a bit of an issue if you're a light sleeper. It's an old hotel and could do...

The staff are reluctant to help. Everything is too difficult. Even the small stuff like asking directions is a challenge. It seems like too much trouble. The building itself is alright, kind of an old style, though a bit cold inside the rooms, especially in the morning.

Definitely a great place to stay, comfortable, staff is fantastic and the price is great. Great room, nice and clean. Very highly recommended. I've stayed here a few times in the past and it's always consistent and hassle free.

This hotel is in a historical building from the early 1900’s, and still retains some of its grandiosity in patches. However, beyond the occasional historical décor, the hotel itself is not particularly attractive for a number of reasons. Reception was prompt, but without any form of warmth, greeting or even information. Just a “here is your key, you are on...
