“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Our room was in the large old home on the property. The room was large with a sitting area and a comfortable bed. There was a fridge but no kitchen (we knew this when we booked it). It is very close to the road out to the Otago Peninsula which was our main destination in the area. The helpful staff told use exactly how to find the road. It is not close to the main town but we stopped there on our way through first.

We stayed in the Rose room in the main house which was clean and comfortable. Lovely big bed! On a main road but little or no traffic overnight. Bathroom was small but functional and clean. Need to drive if going into town.

Stayed 1 night at the motel. Staff is very helpful, furnishing is old but there's everything you need. It is a long way from town. We took a bus tour of the city - excellent! Next time will try to stay closer to town as Dunedin is fantastic.

It's hard with 4 kids too find places to stay but this placed filled the bill really well. Although tired decor it was great for the family and close to town and peninsular. Fairly quiet location and was nice to drive down to the beach and go for a walk. I would return again with family, but if you are new and trendy, this isn't the place. Nice owners and staff.

We picked place from the AA book, we were walk-up. We did called ahead. Nice place, friendly hosts, The are a little old style. The shower did not have anyplace to place a bar soap, limited space for toiletries. The bed was good, quite location. Full kitchen.

Stayed in their room with nice big king bed which is attached to the main house but very seperate. Clean, nice big TV, comfy bed. Recommend when need to stay in Dunedin, esp if going to the Edgar centre. Fridge in room and basic kitchen stuff. Great value for money. Just a short drive to supermarkets etc....

We enjoyed staying here as it was a great location to go into the city or to the Penninsula.
A Supermarket was not far away and there were a few food outlets just up the road. Units
were very adequate for our needs and the host was very friendly and helpful. Value for money.
