“comfortable accommodation in Dunedin”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This hotel is sited in North Dunedin & is very close to the Botanic Gardens but not far from the city centre & only 5 minutes down to the North Road shops where there is a good selection of shops including a supermarket, chemist & cafe. It dosn't take long to get to any of the tourist attractions & only 30 minutes from the airport.
. It has very good free car parking & is set in a lovely garden setting-. being spring,all the flowers are out & from my room I had a lovely view of the garden.
The room was large with 2 queen sized comfortable beds, plenty of pillows & the usual hotel amenities. The bathroom was on the small side but had a good shower.
There are tea & coffee making facilities in the room & a free newspaper is delivered to your door every morning. The restaurant meal was excellent , we really enjoyed the food , as did other patrons dining that night.There is a well stocked bar & nice booths to sit & relax & view the garden. We found the reception & bar/wait staff very nice & pleasant & the room was well serviced every day. There is free WiFi in the bar area for 20 minutes or so but it is very annoying having to trapse up there whenever you want to use the laptop, especially at night. Overall though it is a very pleasant hotel to stay in & I will be staying there again when I visit Dunedin in the near future.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are very convenient but most rooms have a lovely view of the garden

2 night stay in a double room with 2 kids. Rooms are standard size, however a motel would give you more space for the money you pay.
We had to ask for additional towels twice while here and we also asked of any recommendation for places for dinner with 2 kids, but were advised "We have a kids menu". We at here one of this nights and the food was very nice, but expensive.
Car parking was convenient and the bathroom was new and clean but small.
Free WiFi of 8MB....... 8!!! Motels in NZ are leaving the big hotel chains for dead when it comes to this!
Again, seems like you would get better value for money out of your accommodation by staying at a nice motel that is privately run.

The rooms were very good and served their purpose. The location was very good and we had a lovely walk in the Botanic Gardens, which are right next door (about two minutes walk away) before breakfast. Great crepes in the cafe in the Botanic Garden!

The service was very friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend this to friends and happily come and stay again.

Overall impressed with this accommodation, nice room with amenities, good size car park . I chose it as it was close to where my son lived, so suited my needs. Check in was efficient, it is like a mini Hotel. Only complaint was and this is something that I may think twice about booking here again is I was not informed that if paying by credit card there is an extra fee on top of the price quoted. When I booked by phone I as informed of their cancelation policy, but not the extra charge if paying by c/c, I mentioned this to the girl on reception, she just said sorry. This is the first place in Dunedin that has charged this extra. Maybe they should quote a price including c/c fee and give a discount for cash, this would be nicer than at check out you are charged more than quoted. This is not a good look for our tourist industry, I think being honest up front is important.
