We spent one night in Dunedin in January.
It’s a very good place to be used as a starting point to visit the Otago Peninsula.
The Mercure Leisure Lodge is a standard Mercure Hotel.
It’s quite far from the city center: both from the Octagon and from the Railway Station so you need a car.
The hotel is quite small and all the rooms are on the ground or the first floor.
The reception can be improved.
The room was quite big with two beds.
The bathroom was ok and both the room and the bathroom were absolutely clean.
Pay attention: We had an international phone card and even if we used a local number this was the first hotel where we had to pay the local call.
In the hotel there is also the restaurant but we preferred to eat in city center both dinner and breakfast.
There is the free car parking of the hotel.
Suggestion: go to the Albatros center on the Otago Peninsula, look for the penguins, buy a Paua shell on the Otago peninsula (they are cheaper than in other places, be sure to visit the railway station and to drink the fresh water at the brewery (but pay attention only 5 minutes car parking allowed, and they always check).
