I have just returned from a weekend stay in the Dunedin with 3 friends.
We had the roomy attic room which had 4 single beds in and an en-suite shower room. Both rooms were bright, very clean and tidy and the shower gels, shower caps etc were a nice touch.
The room was up two flights of stairs, the second being quite tight and windey (which were 'fun' after a few drinks!) but David did offer to carry our bags up when we arrived - to which we refused but were sorry we did when we saw them!!
The guest house is decorated beautifully and had lovely features. David was very helpful in explaining where the bus stops, restaurants and touristy things where even though there were plenty of leaflets available. He even supplied us with an ice bucket for our pre night out drinks, Theres plenty of on street parking and we felt happy leaving our cars there the whole time.
The breakfast was fab with a good choice of fruit, cereal, cheeses, oatcakes and juices even before you order your cooked breakfast. This really set us up for the day sight seeing and walking up and down those steps and hills.
We were given three sets of keys which were handy as we didnt return at any 'reasonable' time!
The guest house is only about a mile away from Princes Street and cost £1.20 per person on the bus or between £4 - £6 in a taxi, depending on where your going. This made the night times quiet and comfortable.
We would definately stay here again and have recommended it to everyone who has asked.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dunedin Guest House is a semi-detached Victorian Villa located on a large sunny corner with gardens and a lovely view of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags. Built as a family home in 1882, the three-story house was divided into two homes in the 1950s and returned to a single dwelling around late 1980s. Sympathetically converted into the present accommodations, the house is a listed building and therefore retains such original features as a magnificently lit cupola that dominates the central staircase and gives the house an airy spaciousness. Other original features are the mosaic-tiled entrance and vestibule, ornate cornices and a spectacular plasterwork thistle ceiling in the breakfast room. Original woodwork prevails throughout the guestrooms, as well, with massive Canadian pine doors, paneling and dados. ... more less
