Nice hotel. Even though it's in the city the double glazing meant our room was quiet. The valet parking was convenient. It's right in the city so it's easy access for shopping and business. It's an short walk to the old railway station where the Taieri Gorge Railway operates.

Well appointed room in the centre of the city. Close to restaurants and museums. No view to speak of from our room. Parking has an additional charge. Casino downstairs although we only went for a look.

I hoped it might rain to at least cleanse... More

Our tour guide dropped us off here and they brought out hot/wet hand towels to freshen up and orange juice to drink! Then I saw our room and it was so big and modern! Had a problem with an electrical plug/ converters and they lent me one at the front desk! Very nice!

Very central, clean, good laundry room. Comfortable beds and large bedrooms. Decent sized bathroom. Convenient for the octagon where excursions can be booked. Also not far from the very attractive station building.

Great hotel in the middle of Dunedin CBD. Staff were friendly and efficient at check in, room was very comfortable, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was nice and was nice to be able to get barista coffee with our cooked breakfast. Overall a great stay
