“Great service!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Our second night after arriving in New Zealand we stayed at this cute cluster of hotel town houses known simply as 858 George St. The service is fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The accommodation is spacious (two storey), clean and comfortable. Very central being on one of the main streets in town. Highly recommended!

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

Great hosts, very helpful and friendly. Excellent accommodation with everything we needed, clean, modern and a great base for our Dunedin stay. Short walk to town. Had off street parking. We were in the two bedroom two storey. Would recommend highly.

The location is in the heart of town. After a long day of traveling, I walked into my room to find a spa tub! It was such a treat to soak my weary bones. The host of the motel (Sally) was so eager to help us that we didn't know where to begin our exploration of the town. Its was wonderful treat!

These apartments are very nice but make sure you are not on the roadside. We stayed with friends in the very front unit which was great. We stayed the night of a Super 15 rugby match and got to bed after midnight. We never slept at all the cars and idiots walking past kept us awake all night. It was a real shame. Get a unit away from the road.

Room Tip: At the rear.

I stayed here one night while on business in Dunedin and would definitely stay again. My room was spacious, clean and had it's own little balcony, which I would have sat on had I arrived earlier. The bathroom was very, very spacious and the spa bath was amazing. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Back your car into a parking space as not much room for turning.

While on business, five of my staff stayed for two nights across 3 different units. We were thrilled with the warm, modern, clean and comfortable units. The units are new but all have been designed with a character feel. The owners were responsive and helpful. It was perfectly located and we will certainly be back. Thank you.

First stayed here many years (soon after it opened) and loved it then.
Decided that we needed to treat ourselves to a night away and chose one of the Executive Double Spa Bath units.

The owners (Sally & Michael) were actually away when we stayed, but the service was still as excellent as we had come to expect. They have always delivered a high level of friendly service (even when we were customers at their previous business), so it's good to see that they make sure it continues even if they are away 8-).

The bath and shower were HUGE with plenty of complimentary extras (shampoos, shower cap, bath salts) and luxurious towels. The kitchen area was simple but exactly what we needed, with plenty of room in the fridge to put our treats (including a bottle of Moet that we'd been saving).
The bed was large and comfortable, with plenty of pillows and cushions to lie on/against when reading and watching TV. The TV was a large flat screen, with Sky TV (50 channels) + a DVD player.

The wardrobe was a good size (with spare hangers) and there was a nice blanket in the drawer if we had needed it. Which we didn't - as the heater was excellent and got the room warm very quickly, especially with the good quality curtains.

We particularly liked the table and chairs on the balcony, giving us another "living area" if we wanted.

Having stayed in many hotels and motels around the world, we can definitely say that 858 should be at the top of your list if you are staying in Dunedin.

Room Tip: 858 is within walking distance to town. If you end up at the Dunedin Casino at the end of your eveni...
