Upon arriving in Dunedin I had an accomodation guide which was usefull and good advice on all occasions bar this one. We arrived in The Law Courts Hotel around 8pm and asked for a double room which came to $99. I was quite shocked at the totally out of date by about 50 yearsness of the place and I had not actually ever seen a building which carpets its walls in thick pink carpet up to half way then dark green wall paper the rest of the way up, I felt like I had just stepped into a 1960s YMCA. The hall ways up to the room were of a similar state, very old with peeling wall paper and dirty old carpets.
The room itself was very basic. We were staying on the 3rd floor of the hotel in room 308. The room included all the usuals for that sort of price TV, Fridge, ensuit etc. The room did not have double glazzed windows so it let a lot of heat out and a lot of noise in. Being right next to a very busy road it really was noisy. The room was cold and a similar decoration to the rest of the building. The bed was clean however it was very uncomfortable. The ensuit bathroom was covered in mildew and generall dirtyness. The location of the place however is really good and it has its own carpark.
All in all for one night it did the job however it was not a comfortable nights sleep at all. After traveling on we found motels which were 100% nicer and usually costing between $80 to $110, much better value for money. The best thing for this place is to totally gut it out and start again.
