Bluestone on George
Ranked #1 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Whilst I had high expectations based on Trip Advisor reviews, this property exceeded those. This was perhaps the cleanest hotel room and property that I have experienced and I add, I do not normally pay strict attention to cleanliness at hotels I visit. But here, I was overwhelmed by the cleanliness of well designed and furnished rooms. I will go back. Unless some of the facilities of a cityhotel are required, I would not hesitate to stay here again. Cafes are within walking distance for a good breakfast. The bed was SO comfortable too.

This plush upmarket B and B is right in the heart of Dunedin’s main street and is easy to find. From the moment you walk through the front door you’ll know you are in the right place. It’s like stepping into a page of Vogue Living. It’s new, fresh, clean and classy. The rooms are uniquely decorated to the highest standard with the very best of fabrics, plush towels and pillows. Accessorised beautifully and finished with the very finest cosmetics in the bathroom. The bluestone colour scheme is simply stunning. The rooms are light filled, comfortable with a super big bathroom and oversized spa bath. The balconies are quaint and offer a beautiful view over Dunedin. The kitchenette would be great for a longer stay and was fully stocked with everything you’d need including a full mini bar. The reception staff ( husband and wife managing couple I suspect) were extremely helpful with restaurant options, holding baggage and booking our airport shuttle collection, which incidentally is $20 NZ per person. The service is good and comes right to the front door. (It’s either shuttle or a $70 taxi fare to airport which is around 35mins away) The car park is just 5 metres from reception also. You can walk everywhere from this most central address. My only regret was, that we were only there 3 nights. Dunedin’s City Centre has many many great restaurants and cafes, all of which we sampled. It’s a fun city although nights were really cold so bring your woolies. Shopping was brilliant, and we enjoyed having the car and being able to get out of town. I loved walking the Botanical Gardens also.
Can’t imagine there’s any better address than this place. Would highly recommend, its really beautiful and smells so good too, the minute the doors open at reception. A 10 out of 10 for our perfect stay!!!!!

Stayed here for two nights recently. We selected the Bluestone on George for our stay after seeing the ratings on Trip Advisor and were certainly not disappointed.

The room was immaculate - spotlessly clean, with tasteful, modern decor and a large and very comfortable bed. Room was beautifully heated (important for the time of year) and the location was perfect - a very short walk to a number of quality restaurants.

Would absolutely recommend and look forward to returning.

What a great stay. The room was immaculate and warm. The linens soft and spotlessly clean. The decor modern and comfortable. The facilities ideal for self catering and I love the touch of front loader washer/drier so you don't have to travel with your dirty gym gear.
The staff are cheerful and helpful.
Have stayed before and will stay again.

We stayed for three days at the Bluestone on George during our recent holiday in the South Island . This motel was by far the best we stayed at throughout our 11 day holiday. The shops and restaurants are within walking distance as George Street is the Main Street in Dunedin.The warm greeting from the people in the office through to the helpful staff were simply awesome. The fittings , bedding, size of the room, stunning deep spa bath etc were all of the highest quality and the whole set up was fabulous! There is a Car park on site and the small shared lounge in the main lower floor area is also fantastic. The owners are very welcoming and even dried some washing for us and delivered it back to our room! We highly recommend this wonderful place to stay. We stayed in room 402 on the top floor with a super view out across the city.

Stayed for only one night, but this was not enough. The room was spacious, comfortable and well thought out. It had a warm - home away from home feel. Staff were extremely helpful and polite. When I stay in Dunedin Bluestone On George will be my absolute first choice. You wont be disappointed with this hotel, and within walking distance to main street and restaurants
