Always stay here on my monthly work visit to Dunedin, love having a washing machine and dryer in the room, night light in the bathroom, amazing walk-in shower, quiet rooms and easy walking distance to the Octagon.

Hi LTC-NZ,

Thank you so much for your fine comments. It is very satisfying to learn that you vote with your feet, and that you are one of our many regular guests. Our facilities are ample and ideal for business folk such as yourself, and the feedback we constantly receive from our corporate clients confirms that this is the case.

The particular aspects of the hotel amenities which you note, as well as many others, combine to make Distinction Dunedin the first stop for discerning quality-seekers, in both business and leisure categories. It would be great if you came to visit in a more relaxed and leisurely context, relieved of pressing deadlines and the like.

Many thanks again for taking the time to convey your experiences at Distinction Dunedin. We trust we will have another opportunity in the not-too-distant future.

Kind regards

Nigel

Hi The_Real_Burt_Munroe,

Thank you very much for contributing your thoughts about your visit to Distinction Dunedin. It is gratifying to read that you were so impressed with our property, and indeed the properties comprising the wider group.

It is outstanding that you found your room to be superb, and that you intend to return in future. Whilst you make mention of your sub-optimal experience in our onsite Parcels Restaurant, as you do not provide any detail, I therefore I cannot speak knowledgeably to your comment. Should you wish, please contact the hotel directly and pass on any issues directly.

Thanks again for your input. We hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards

Hi Mariam,

Thank you very much for your contribution. It is excellent to learn that your first visit to these southern latitudes was so memorable and well received.

Our staff are always excited to read such positive comments regarding their service, and we are especially pleased that you enjoyed the fare on offer in our on-site Parcels restaurant. Customer recommendations are always aimed for and welcomed, so thank you for doing this.

Many thanks again Mariam. It would be our pleasure should you choose to stay at the Distinction on your next visit to Dunedin.

Best regards

Spent four nights at Distinction Dunedin, staff friendly, studio room on 7th floor, spacious, clean, well equipped with small kitchenette, bathroom good size, good shower with both overhead and adjustable hand held shower head options. Bathroom floor is polished marble and a bit slippery when wet, could do with a grab rail especially for older folk.

Breakfast was not included in my rate, so paid for the hot buffet option at NZ$30.00 per day - not cheap and not great, I lasted two days and then found better breakfast options out of the hotel but still close by.

Parking readily available at cost in the adjacent hotel car park.

Overall a great hotel, walking distance to the centre, museum, railway station and the upcoming warehouse precinct. Would certainly stay here again.

The welcome, service, check-in, room and food were all excellent and faultless. The room was clean, airy, spacious and well designed. I stayed in a 'studio' and it was beautiful, comfortable and quiet. Feather pillow and duvets, silent air-conditioning which never got too hot, beautiful modern spacious shower. Huge well equipped clean gym on the 2nd floor - this was the best gym I've seen in a long time. Breakfast was perfect - omelette and I couldn't fault any of it. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Studio is probably lowest cost and includes a full equipped well designed kitchen
