Chosen from very imaginative advertising materials produced by the owners which made it look promising. Initially owners seemed helpful but I became disappointed on seeing the rooms which I had chosen for our two night stay. The suite was large with small lounge attached which had fantastic view. However, the furniture was worn with faded and frayed upholstery. The bed clothes were clean but not matched or well ironed. Above all the room was cold because 'windows had accidentally been left open'. The bathroom was a bit old fashioned with a basic shower up a step which was carpetted. The in room tea making facilities were basic. The TV was a tiny 12' model which took signal from the lounge. The house lounge was large and full of mismatched furniture which I suppose was meant to be charming whereas it was really just cheap. We had also booked a second night and had agreed to go to another room - it was much smaller than I had anticipated even for two though the owner had kindly agreed to add a third bed for our daughter. The wallpaper was old fashioned and the room dull and depressing as it was on the rear of the house.Lighting was inadequate.There was no en suite which had not been made clear so it was to be a shared bathroom across a corridor. Owner admitted this. We decided to stay only one night under the circumstances. Breakfast was quite satisfactory. We paid for the cancelled night because the owner said she had turned hundred away because of the Rugby World Cup matches in Dunedin. Wasted $135 here - owner said she didn't want to charge us but felt she had to. Did however drive into Dunedin and despite everything secured a very good motel a short walk from the Otargo Stadium straight away. Main road down driveway is SH1 and makes for an extremely dangerous entrance to this B and B. Overall not a happy experience and felt I had been taken in by glossy pictures.
