“Classy hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

We loved our stay at the Bluestone. The rooms are well-appointed, clean, and comfortable, with a couch and plenty of storage room for luggage. Our room had a view of the harbor and the Otago peninsula as well. The in-room kitchenette and laundry are great. Plus, it's an easy walk to the city center. Service was also excellent at both the front desk and the custodial staff. I can't recommend the Bluestone highly enough.

Was a very pleasant stay. Staff friendly, rooms very well appointed and clean and the Motel is in a great position on George St. One of the best motels we visited on our trip and would choose it again on another trip.

We stayed 2 nights here just a few days ago and found the accommodation great! The bed was very comfortable, we slept really well. The service was friendly and the rooms very modern and clean. The double spa was a treat and overall we had a great time!

Room Tip: High floor - level four if available, studio apartment with double spa :)

We stayed here for 3 nights and didn't want to leave! Our room had everything we needed including a washer/dryer combo. I've used those before and found the "dryer" part of the machine quite useless, but this one worked very well. The rooms and the entire property are absolutely spotless and one of the cleanest motels that I've ever stayed in. While I've heard that it can be noisy in the area, we didn't have any problems with that at all. It's about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town and there are lots of shops and restaurants in between. There's a computer in the lobby for use while the main desk is staffed and a small gym as well. We found the value here absolutely stunning and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! Keep up the great work!!!

I stayed for three nights while in Dunedin for a concert. The room was modern and tidy, and the bed was comfortable. The trendy artwork hanging on the wall added some ambience.

The washing machine in the room came in handy on the last night, and meant that I didn't have to take a bag of dirty laundry home with me.

The only fault that I could find was with the combined spa bath/shower. I am rather short, and found it a bit difficult to climb over the side of the spa bath.

We only had a one night stay at the Bluestone and we wished it was longer.
Great hotel with friendly and very helpful staff.
Room was clean and very comfortable. Large enough for 3 adults without feeling crowded.
The best decorated and outfitted hotel of our two weeks in New Zealand.
Would love to stay here again.

Easily the most modern and stylish accomodation we stayed in during our trip around New Zealand more akin to a luxury hotel than a motel. It was well situated for restaurants and only a short walk into the centre of town. The area has a nice buzz due to the many students nearby. The room had a nice view over the city and a small balcony to take advantage of that view. We had free internet use and a good kitchenette for self catering. There was an excellent recycling policy and they were really helpful in disposing of all the things we had gathered during our sdtay and were unable to take on the plane. We would willingly stay there again.

Room Tip: The higher the better the view.
