Ranked #1 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We spent 5 nights at the Bluestone on George and very highly recommend it.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, the rooms extremely well equipped and comfortable and the service first class.

Excellent!

We only stayed one night but this is a very nice upmarket motel. A recent build so the decor is modern and the rooms and facilities very clean. A lovely bathroom with spa bath and friendly owners. The location was great and we walked to the stadium in 10 minutes. Plenty of good cafes nearby.

We chose this place based on other Tripadvisor reviews and it did not fail to live up to them. It's close to the town centre and as you arrive, there is a steep driveway taking you up to the hotel reception. There are a couple of disabled spots next to the receptions, one of which they kindly reserved for us (one of our group is disabled). We welcomed at reception and given 2 adjoining rooms (201 and 202) which each had a double and single bed. Perfect for what we needed. The hotel is 6-7 years old but looks brand new as it is so well maintained. You walk into a full kitchenette with in room washer/dryer (and free detergent). To the left is a beautiful bathroom with spa bath and ahead is the main room with sofa, TV etc. WiFi up to 200 Mb was free but that's all we needed. The room was so nice and clean and the place so friendly we didn't want to move on but we had to. They kept our luggage for us whilst we went on the Taeri Gorge Railway and even rang ahead for us to check where we could park and how much it would be.

Are there any negatives - well there is no in room safe and no air conditioning but that doesn't stop me from giving it 5/5 and this is the place we'd choose to come back to again.

Stayed here for two nights in February 2013. The staff are super helpful and will assist with any request. The rooms are well appointed with a very comfortable bed and even the couch can turn into a proper bed if required. For those that have time full range of Sky Sports channels. Believe the hotel is just over five years old and has been well maintained. The potential only negative the bathroom could have had a stronger fan whilst showering. The hotel is in a great central location to the new stadium, the university, shops and restaurants and even some of the other sights are all within walking distance. Good stuff!

Had a couple of nights stay.The owners have thought of eveything you could need and we felt very comfortable.Location is good - a 15 min walk into the centre of Dunedin. Deserves the glowing reviews already posted!

Room Tip: Suite 305 was great!

The other positive reviews have said it. Bluestone isn't a B&B and although technically it is a motel, really it is a block of apartments and you get one. Location is good, it's quiet, yet it is central and not far to downtown. If you are an academic it is a stones throw from the university. The staff are welcoming and helpful. The washing machine/tumble drier is a godsend to UK travellers on the road for some weeks Everything is clean. The linen, towels crockery etc are good quality. The spa bath cheered up my wife after a day sightseeing. They've all said it before.

If I had to nit pick (and it is nit picking). First: I'd have liked a small table in our room rather than the foot rest by the sofa. Then we could have eaten off a table having prepared a meal in our more than adequate kitchenette. Second: the car park is on a steep slope which makes loading and unloading a bit difficult. But the reception offered to help, and if you are infirm, I am sure that they wouldn't hesitate, they are such nice people.

This is a brilliant place to stay. The location is right by the University and very close to town. The room was very spacious and everything you need to cook for yourself is available. Tucked back off the road with off street parking this is one of the best places to stay in Dunedin.
