An awesome stay ! Very convinient, with wondefully equipped, charactered home. A very uniquely architectured house, with yet reasonable tarrifs !
If I'm ever coming back to Dunedin, I'm heading straight to Arden Street House !!
Lovely hosts, Joyce and Dave !
And you will love that place as you enter.

Room Tip: Choose a room where washrooms and toilets are attached with your bedrooms !

If you are looking for something a bit different when you stay in Dunedin, this is a good place. Very friendly people, clean cosy, quirky rooms. Close to restaurants and bus route. Good 20 minute walk to the Octagon. A welcoming place to stay.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in a charming comfortable double room with ensuite facilities, and a lovely view of the Botanical Gardens. Our hostess and her staff were warm and welcoming, and the breakfasts were healthy and delicious, served in a breakfast room with a good view of the valley. The (optional) dinners were tasty and inexpensive, and provided an opportunity to talk to many of the guests and staff present. Loved the creative,eclectic decor - made us feel very happy and relaxed. Arden St House is close to the Botanic Gardens and the University of Otago, but a longish walk to the heart of the city (at least 45 minutes). But a delightful location, nevertheless.

This is the second time I have stayed here. I enjoyed it so much last year I returned again.
It is a lovely house with very friendly hosts.
The breakfasts are delightful: fresh fruit salad, toast, cereals, coffee and juice, sitting at the dining table in the bay window overlooking the North-East Valley.
The dinners are excellent value. Healthy, delicious and inexpensive. Better than any of the restaurants in the immediate area.
The rooms are warm and comfortable.
The decor is eclectic, so don't stay here if you are looking for a bland hotel experience.

Room Tip: The single rooms are small but very cosy and warm and have a great view out over the valley.

My friend and I were looking to spend one night in a B&B or motel after many days in a camper van or hostel-type lodging (Dec., 2010). We had such a wonderful experience at Arden St House we changed our plans and spent a second night there. We both agreed our stay at Arden St House was one of the highlights of our 5 weeks in NZ! Our lovely hostess, Ms Leppard, showed us a great time. If she serves dinner while you are visiting, by all means, dine with her and her local guests. Worth every penny. You'll have a fun evening of excellent fare and fun conversation. Ms. Leppard is also very knowledgeable about things to do and places to see.

Room Tip: Visit was in Dec. 2010, not May 2011.
