The location is great...short walk from the Octagon and the Church...very close to a number of other Dunedin attractions...however, the property is quite old...the rooms are decently sized...have most amenities...don't have a fan though which can be a bit of a problem during summers...the buffet breakfast is pretty good...in room WiFi is also decent...restaurants are a short walk away...

I stay at this hotel regularly for work visits as the location is ideal. I would, absolutely, choose this hotel if I was to be travelling for personal reasons. Ideally situated, great service, food and rooms and I truly appreciated the personal touches and the recognition that I am a regular stayer.

It was pleasing to have a decent size room! When you are on the road a lot it is good to be able to spread out and feel more like home. Another feature is having a standalone shower! Very central and close to the main shopping areas. The bed was extremely comfortable.

I came here on a business trip and found that this hotel is quite and friendly. The room rate is quite good for what you get. Breakfast is quite expensive considering. To park you car you have to pay a valet fee, unless you wish to drive around for a while looking for a park.

Stayed in room 715 which was at the back of the hotel, it was very good and the staff were all very helpful. Breakfast was very good but did not dine in the restaurant apart from that. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I had a corner room- it was a huge room with large windows affording a great city view. The staff was really friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. Blackout curtains were very appreciated on those great big windows when it came time to sleep.
