“The Only Place To Stay In Dunedin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2009

Only stayed 1 night but would certainly recommend this apartment style hotel to anyone visiting Dunedin.
Situated just back from the main road into the town, it was easy to find. Slightly elevated gives all rooms a view of sorts over the town but the hill from the road to the car park would cause difficulty for less abled people walking back from the town.
The hotel is fairly new and this was evident in the standard of the room. We had a queensize and single bed, plus a cot, available for a small extra cost.
The room had cooking facilities plus a DVD, flat screen TV and spa bath. The bathroom also had underfloor heating and a heated mirror and was extremely modern and clean.
A lift serves all floors and reception has free internet access plus a library of DVDs to borrow.
Recommend this hotel to all visitors to Dunedin.

Stayed at Bluestone on George for two nights. Asked for a room with a view which they gave me. My room was on the 4th floor (elevator) and I had lovely views across Dunedin and the harbour.

The room was a typical hotel/motel layout. Walk in and ensuite on the right, then the bed and finally a sitting area with a couch, coffee table and tv. The standard of the room was very high and very clean. The pillows were monogrammed and the bed was a very comfortable king size. There was a small balcony which you could sit on and take in the view. The ensuite had the biggest spa bath I have ever seen ( you need to request a room with a spa)

There are restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Downstairs in the reception area they have a computer with free internet access. You can also pay to use the internet in your room. Also downstairs there is a lounge area and you can order drinks.

A very nice relaxing place to stay. Highly recommended.

Stylish & modern looking motel, with nice interior & furnishings, is located not far from the city centre, about 5 min drive away from the 'Octagon'.

It has to be one of the best motel I've ever stayed! Its even better than commercialized 5-star hotel chains. The room is spacious & clean. The owner had put in tremendous effort & personal touch in carving out all necessities and niceties to address every single possible needs & wants of their guests: Soft & comfy bedding, bathroom under floor heating & heated towel rails (which were great as we went during winter), fluffy bath towels, clothes washer/dryer in room, kitchen facilities & equipment, huge patio with staircase leading to the car park, mini home theatre system, free car park etc.

There's even a table at a corner opposite the reception counter with note book for guest to share their reviews of restaurants they've visited in Dunedin - that's really thoughtful!

There is a PC with free internet usage in the cozy sitting/waiting area. Even the guest lift looks sleek and one of a kind.

Called up one night for a full day internet access. Instead of revealing the password over the phone, it was printed out and delivered to the room - that's really good service!

Two thumbs up for this motel and highly recommended!

We stayed at B on G for two nights in June, and greatly enjoyed our time there. Upon arrival we were welcomed by our hosts who were very professional and helpful, and were shown to our clean, comfortable, and stylish apartment. Our room had a very well equipped kitchen, with a remarkably affordable, and thus enticing (!), mini-bar, and our bathroom was also of a very high standard. Overall we found B on G to be among the best accommodation we visited in New Zealand, and look forward to returning.

We had four nights at the Bluestone on George and found the accomodation all that we had expected. Very clean and well maintained by a friendly and helpful staff. The owner/Manager Neville & his wife Sandra always had time to speak to us and generally helped make our visit memorable. Well situated and easy access from the carpark. We enjoyed the double spa bath and the warmth of the heating in the room.

Sandra was very friendly when we checked in with helpful advice about local attractions. The room was opulent and beautifully decorated with a very comfortable bed, nice spa and an expansive view of Dunedin city from our top floor balcony. We enjoyed evening drinks in the guest lounge with plenty of interesting magazines to look through. Also we were able to check on our emails with the complimentary use of a laptop computer located adjacent to the reception. Did not notice any significant noise from George St either.

My wife loved the five star fittings and furnishings. I thought one of the best features, especially if you are on the top floor as we were, was one of the coolest hi-tech lifts I have ever seen. As I was the one lugging our suitcases around on this trip, this made my life a lot easier.

Spoke to Neville on checkout and he was very gracious as we heaped praise on their establishment. Would loved to have stayed more than the 1 night.

Deservedly lives up to the top marks acheived on Tripadvisor.

We booked the Bluestone on the basis on TripAdvisor reviews, and we certainly were not disappointed. I was a little worried by a George Street location, as it can be busy, but the property is situated well back from the road and does not suffer from road noise.

We were checked in by one of the owners, who was very friendly and efficient, and shown the comfortable guest lounge facility and then on to our room. The room was reasonably spacious, tastefully decorated, and well equipped with items like a CD/DVD player. The bathroom was very nice, with heated floor and a fantastic bath (although the over-bath shower was a little awkward). The in-room internet system was a little bizarre, but once set up it worked fine - this would be one area to improve upon to impress business travellers.

Overall this is a well designed, well maintained and comfortable place to stay. Although probably most suited to business travellers, I would recommend the Bluestone to anyone looking for a comfortable stay and excellent value in Dunedin.
