“Wonderful Hosts”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Holly and Robyn are lovely hosts and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and give us all the information we needed to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfasts were delicious. Our room was huge but gloomy (despite two large windows overlooking the street) and poorly laid out with functional furniture. The bed was comfortable but the en-suite had been built into a small corner of the room and there was nowhere to put anything in it, nor anywhere to dry towels. Luckily these were changed every day. The light and airy conservatory overlooking the garden was a good place to go and read and eat.

We enjoyed our two night stay at Deacons Court. Beautiful old house with large comfortable rooms. Conservatory looking over charming garden was a lovely place to enjoy breakfast. Holly and Robyn very welcoming and friendly. Great location!

We really enjoyed our two-night stay with Robyn and Holly. The room was great--large and comfortable. The breakfasts were better than what we had had in restaurants. The location was convenient, too. We did have to climb up the hill to get back from the city, but because we walk a lot, that wasn't really an issue. Great place to stay!

The Old World charm of the beautifully maintained historic house was matched by the welcoming friendliness of hosts Robyn and Holly. The house is immaculate with attention to detail both practically and aesthetically. Robyn and Holly live discreetly upstairs so with our three couples we had the private use of the downstairs area including kitchen and beautiful fully glassed conservatory looking out over the pretty “English County’ garden. Perfect for breakfast and afternoon drinks. Our king bed room was spacious with a spare single bed, two leather armchairs and beautiful bay window looking out over Dunedin and the bay. Ensuite tiny but adequate. Comfortable bed, warm room, quiet. Free wifi. Delicious full breakfast with fresh ingredients. Central position on High Street with its historic houses and a pleasant 10 to 15 minute walk down into town. It is a steep uphill walk back. Take the car if you don’t like to walk. Nova Café was a good restaurant option and Taieri Gorge Rail worth doing. Highly recommend Deacons Court.

Room Tip: The king bedroom at the front with the view over Dunedin.

We enjoyed our one night stay after going to Doubtful Sound. The home is old but beautifully maintained. Our bedroom was like a palace. The hosts were just attentive enough.

Breakfast was enough to feed a small army. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Any of them are wonderful.

Very clean, extremely comfortable, outstanding breakfasts, a beautiful sunny atrium, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful hosts. Our luggage was delayed and Ash went out of his way to help us. We enjoyed our conversations in the morning and learned a lot about New Zealand in general. With all the choices Dunedin has to offer, I would stay at Deacon's Court again. It was a wonderful place to stay 3 nights. It's located just 1/2 mile from the town center, which makes it a little quieter.

From the moment we walked through the door my husband and I felt at home. Deacons Court is a beautiful old building and the bedroom we had, which was located at the front, had a view across Dunedin looking towards the Otago Peninsula. I loved the breakfast, reading room and chatting to Ash in the morning whilst cooking our breakfasts. Our room was spacious, the ensuite small but very servicable, I would much rather have a larger bedroom than wasted space in a large ensuite. Our room consisted of a large bed, a single bed, two loungeroom chairs, tv, heater and a cute little table and windowbox seating. Both of us would go back and stay there in the blink of an eye. Well done to Ash and Chris for an exceptional B&B.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the room that faced towards the road and it would be the one that we would request again...
