Modern room and facilities. But no air conditioning, and no windows to open. Provided with pedestal fan at least. Bed comfortable but musty smelling pillow/duvet/underlay. No opening windows. Staff friendly and helpful. Location okay. Room service dessert okay.

In Dunedin on business and stayed in a top floor room (804). It was big airy and light. Really comfortable and a welcome retreat after a day of meetings. Recommend and would certainly stay here again.

An average city type hotel without any particular redeeming features. Lifts need servicing. Rooms were basic but functional. Duvet needed washing and bathroom needed a deep clean. Valet parking was $16. Didn’t go to restaurant so can’t comment on that aspect.
