“Great breakfast and host”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We booked a room with shared bath at ground floor. We were welcome by Simon the host and he was more than helpful to provide us tourist information and places to dine in. We enjoyed the house decor and settings of breakfast, breakfast was well prepared and good choices with good coffee as well. However, our queen bed could be a little bit more comfortable if the four-posted bed shake and create less noise when we make every turn during our sleeps. Other than that room was very clean and decor was great too. Great view over looking Otago Peninsula in the breakfast room and also on the upper deck on mezzanine floor near outside of house. Location was convenient and is walking distance to the Otago Square which is the town centre.

We had booked a one week 'tour of the South Island flying in and out of Queenstown. After a three and a half hour drive from Queenstown, We arrived in Dunedin at 7.30 in the evening. We were greeted by the host Simon who showed us to our room, the aptly named Grandview room with a view over the city of Dunedin.

We stayed two nights here. The room was comfortable with an en-suite bathroom and continental breakfast was provided in the downstairs dining room. Simon the host, was a mine of information not only on Dunedin but had really great tips for the rest of our stay in Christchurch and Queenstown.

The B&B is on High Street, up a fairly steep hill out of the town centre. It takes about 10 minutes to walk down to the CBD and all of its restaurants and bars and about 15 minutes to walk back up. It's a great spot for a base in Dunedin and we would certainly use it again.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have en-suite facilities. We stayed in the Grandview room which along with the en-suit...

We stayed 5 nights here and enjoyed great hospitality from Simon and Trish. We certainly were made to feel at home. The location is great, the rooms lovely and the views grand. Having a kitchen to prepare our dinner is helpful when travelling. Simon is very helpful re sightseeing and giving directions around the Dunedin region and Trish was able to cater to my dietary requirements for breakfast. In fact, nothing seemed too much trouble.

We would recommend Grandview as very good value and will definitely stay there next time we are in Dunedin.

Grandview lives up to its name with a great view out over Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula. The owners were unbelievably accommodating, with Simon going above and beyond with his hospitality and recommendations of sights to see both locally and around the south island. Free wifi, breakfast and cooking facilities are also much appreciated.
It is only a very short walk into town which is well equipped with restaurants, bars and supermarkets.
Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Grandview, a lovely old building a few minutes walk to the centre of town. The common areas as well as the bedrooms are really nicely furnished as befitting the grand style of the building. As others have mentioned, it is on a hill and takes a little effort to climb (especially after a few beers and a mammoth meal at the Speights brewery!) but you are rewarded with a gorgeous vista, and quite frankly Dunedin is a hilly city so almost everything is on a hill. Simon looked after us and was very friendly and accommodating. His knowledge of the south island is expansive, and we took his advice on things to see in Dunedin and on our way to Wanaka. If I could pick one small negative, it would be that the bathrooms in the rooms with ensuites aren't fully enclosed, but in saying that, there is also a full shared bathroom as well. I would definitely recommend this lovely place.

Room Tip: Some rooms have ensuites and some don't. There is a large common bathroom. I think the 'Gran...

We had the pleasure of staying at this B&B for 1 night. We enjoyed our stay and the short walk into town which gives you great access to shops and restaurants. Don't be put off by the hill it looks steeper than it is 10 mins down and 15 mins back up, but the view makes it all worth while.
Simon and family made our stay feel more like staying with family not strangers.
We would stay there again and recommend others to consider this B&B if staying in Dunedin.

My wife & I enjoyed a relaxing two night stay at Grandview B & B. Simon answered all of our questions regarding what to see and do during our limited stay in Dunedin. He suggested walking to restaurants in the city center. It was not too far to walk downtown, but a bit of excercise up and down High Street that is a fairly steep hill. We enjoyed the exercise. The community lap top computer worked the best and fastest of all B & B's we visited in three weeks. The en suite bathrooms were different being behind glass in the same room, yet they functioned quite well. My wife and I really enjoyed the four poster antique bed. Breakfast was continental with cereal including hot oatmeal, toast, jams, fruit, juice, coffee and tea. Overall this is not a fancy B & B but it was great value. We felt like we were at home when talking to Simon, Sarah or Trish at breakfast.
