“Stunning accomodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

The view from the queen bedroom was amazing, with full views over the city and harbor. While a bit of a walk from the center of the city, the location is fantastic for a good night's sleep. And the home-made bread at breakfast was a real treat.

Room Tip: We had the Queen Room which was great.

Our room was very spacious with a great view of the city and harbor. The hosts were helpful and welcoming,giving us a splendid tour of the city. We would stay here should we ever return to this lovely place. We highly enjoyed our stay with Steve and Finney and they took us to the rental car and train station.

This B&B is located close to the city centre. Its a easy walk down the hill, but being Dunedin, a stiff walk back up the hill! , we had the room at the front with a good view especially at night over the city, the room was excellent, very comportable double bed, excellent shower and bathroom adjacent to the bedroom which in this case was shared. We hardly knew anyone else was staying there. Stephen , the host, could not have been more helpful and really helped me out as my laptop had imploded. If we are in Dunedin again, we will stay there again.

We had the self-contained room which had a big bedroom space, ensuite bathroom, kitchen and dining table area, which was ideal for our 4 night stay over the New Year period.
We could easily eat in, or get into Dunedin city centre for restaurants.
Rooms were comfortable (maybe a tad old fashioned) but were fine and good value for money.
Stephen was a lovely host, doing good breakfasts and providing local tips.
The location is ok - 10 minute walk down the hill to the Speights Brewery and the Octagon.

My boyfriend and I stayed with Steven and Fiennie for 3 nights in early Jan. We were only planning on staying for 2 nights, however we liked it so much we stayed another night. Lovely house with an amazing view from our bedroom of the city, a home away from home. Very central with only a walk down the street to the centre of the city. Steven was so lovely, very friendly and helped all the guest as to what the good sites were, where the best places to eat etc. The breakfast was great! I am gluten-free which was no problem for them. 100% reccomend a stay here, we hope to be back!

Room Tip: We stayed at the room at the front of the house, great large room with balcony and views over the ci...

I really enjoyed our time at Highbrae Guesthouse. The room was very nice. The breakfast was really nice- nice breakfast room, nice ambiance, tea and food. An example of the hosts' kindness-my friend sprained her ankle and our hosts drove us to the attraction we were planning to visit. They had a lot of information about Dunedin and were fun to talk with. The location is close to the city, but up a very big hill.

Stayed at Steven & Fiennies Guest House twice. I must say Steven could not be more friendly or helpful during both our visits.Rooms are spotless. Breakfast is great ( super home made bread). Highly recommended.
