Arrived at this nice hotel. Hoping it was better than the last Mercure places I had stayed at. The guy that checked me in was so unhelpful and very impersonal.We had to find our own way to our room which was very difficult with two heavy suit cases having to walk up stairs as there are no elevators, not to...

The hotel is made from the old Dunedin Brewery. The Haggis ceremony is performed here which is exciting and colourful. I loved the taste of the Haggis. The botanical gardens are just a few minutes walk away and is beautiful. Dinner was served along with the haggis which was good as well.

Decided to stay again whilst down for daughters Graduation. Last visit was ruined by the parking debacle caused by trailers hogging many parks and other guests being allowed to park taking up two spaces to avoid damage to their cars. This practice actually encourages it. Upon our return from dinner around 930 we had to park in a spot not... More

The room was fine - very clean, with an adequate shower and plenty of space. The breakfast was good and the staff were friendly, the bed was also very comfortable. Very pleasant grounds and we would stay there again.

This was a return visit - we stay here at least once a year. We enjoy the cosy feel of this hotel. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Heaps of car parking in the grounds. We get a good price with our Accor membership. Hotel is a bit away from the centre of the city - about 20 minutes walk.... More

Hotel was easy to find and easy to navigate to but was a little dated and is a drive out of the entertainment district of Dunedin. Front desk service was very useful and helpful although we found the restaurant service to be a little lacking to be considered good. Things like placing 4 knobs of butter for a breakfast table...

I had the pleasure of staying here for eight days mid Winter 2016. The first impression was that the premises were a little dated. The whole is just two storeys high and occupies the site of a former brewery, with pleasant gardens outside to the rear and a fair amount of parking out front. The rooms seem to be in... More

Easy location when arriving in Dunedin from the north. Friendly staff, free wifi, clean and tidy well presented rooms. Corridors can be noisy and water pressure in shower not very good. Very good price for hotel accommodation.

This was my third stay in the hotel, I received a great welcome at Reception. The rooms are comfortable, clean and have tea & coffee facilities. The breakfast & supper meals were very good as was the bar service. Mrs Jan McDougall and her team run an excellent facility.
