Bluestone on George

We were only here for one night but loved the place. It was immaculately clean inside and out. The service was great and we very much enjoy the rabbit hutch with resident rabbit. The spa bath was huge and provided a great soak although the jets are never in the right place. It was a short walk to food and drink and there was plenty of parking.

Would definitely recommend this motel. Everything was perfect. Far better than our other accomodation in Dunedin. Suits singles or couples. No facilities for children.

We stayed for 5 nights, ever have we been contended!! I have traveled quite a bit and stayed in 5 star plus hotels around the world but the atmosphere and personal attention was outstanding for a hotel!! The rooms are presented as if it was opened yesterday, clean as seen in the pictures, forgo the cost and enjoy the cozy and appealing ' host' where you can walk down George Street in Dunedin and take in New Zealand ' AS PURE AS IT GETS'!!

We stayed in the Premier Elite room for 2 nights and it is the most expensive stay we had for our 12 days south island trip. The room is cozy and well appointed with a huge and comfy super king size bed. The reception staff is helpful and their dining recommendation was great. Stove is not available in the kitchen and we could make simple dish using the microwave provided.

Only thing that disappointed me was the noise we encountered in the first night of our stay. There is an old building opposite to the hotel and gangs were yelling and chatting loudly in their balcony in the mid night. I could not sleep at all and had called the reception for help at one o'clock in the morning. The reception actioned promptly and the gangs had lower down their voice in a few minutes and I could finally fell into asleep. It was quiet on the 2nd night and had a very good quality of sleep.

Upon seeing the rooms in this hotel we immediately bumped our stay to two nights from the one we had planned. It's lovely, with very comfortable beds (most important!), great linens and towels, and nice features like the in-room washer. The giant spa bath was also a perfect accessory after a long day of sightseeing. Beautifully maintained, and the small touches like ehough detergent for a couple of loads of laundry made this a fantastic stop on our round-the-South-Island drive.

This is very elegant hotel in an excellent location. We had lots of room, our own washer/dryer, a balcony, free Internet access in the lobby and free parking. Our accommodations were beautifully appointed and I hope some day to have a kitchen like the one that was in our room. Everything is as pictured on their website. Before we arrived, I managed to add a third night online to our stay. We liked Dunedin so much we tried for a fourth night, but they were booked up. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, which seems to be the norm in New Zealand.

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.
