“Wonderful Location”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We stayed two nights at the Bluestone in October 2013. Staff was extremely helpful when we had rental car problems. We could easily walk to 3 wonderful restaurants. Our bus tour picked us up at the hotel since it was so close to the center of town. Driveway was fairly steep for a walk at the end of a long day. When we arrived, the manager on duty helped us with our luggage. Large modern elevators looking out on beautiful courtyards. Several options for a great breakfast nearby.

We stayed at Bluestone on George for 2 nights in early November and loved our stay. The room was really were decorated and the bed was very comfy. View over Dunedin was nice and kitchenette was well stocked. Even had a washing machine which was great! Bathroom was clean and large and modern with a spa bath which is always appreciated after a long day of walking around cold Dunedin. Free Wifi and also DVD library for guests to use. Only negative was that it was about a 10min to the centre of Dunedin which didnt really matter much at all but if I had to say one negative that would be it.

We had a reservation for two nights at the Bluestone on George.
The first thing you notice is that the hotel is located right in the center of Dunedin but still a little backed up from the main street so you don't feel like you are right there on the street.
Check in was easy and pleasant. We had no problems getting our room within minutes and even had the pleasure to be greeted by the resident cat (we love cats). A quick elevator ride up to our room and we felt right at home.
There was a little kitchenette area, a sofa area and a super comfortable bed. A little balcony rounded up the great room experience. The bathroom was comfortable with a heat rack for the towels.

Internet was free and the room service/cleaning was flawless!

It was just great!

Absolutely loved the spa in the bathroom. That was definitely the differential point. The rooms are spotless,spacious and filled with all the amenities we needed. The beds are firm and big and the view is spectacular. Only slight downside was probably the lady at reception who looked up when we walked in the door and then looked down. Not even a hello. That was a bit unusual for that type of accommodation. The lift was convenient and parking right outside was a bonus!overall would return and stay again.

Centrally located, the apartment here was very modern, spacious and with high quality fittings. The staff were very helpful and with onsite parking, you can walk to many of the city sights. Being a university town, Dunedin has a safe and youthful feel about it; there are students walking around at all hours which gives the town a unique feel about it.

I've been staying here twice a month for the last 6 months, and can't speak highly enough of the hotel and staff. Rooms are all fitted out to a high standard with excellent beds and bathrooms. I won't stay anywhere else in Dunedin.
DVDs are available from Reception if you fancy a night in and local restaurants will deliver direct to the room.
