Adequate hotel to visit the University City of Dunedin with only an afternoon and evening to explore. Small bar served a bottle of beer to help me get the lay of the land before settling into settling into the small but adequate room. We later had dinner which again was buffet with the Chef carving up a delicious fresh Ham...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Short walk away from the octagon, yes the way back is uphill but it's not that bad. The rooms are very basic but it has everything you need even a little balcony. It was a little bit run down but not shabby. The only thing I didn't like was that you only get sheets...

Thank you very much for your feedback, it is much appreciated. We are currently working to convert the hotel to duvets instead of woollen blankets and have already completed this in our Junior Suite rooms and we hope over the coming year to have all rooms changed. Thanks again.

Great location - short walk to the Town Hall, the Octagon, Railway Station etc. The room was quite nicely presented. It did have nice views over North Dunedin up to Mount Cargill. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great if you're looking for a 'nice' hotel (not a luxury hotel) and don't want to spend a fortune.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The young girl on reception was very very helpful, and explained to us in detail how to get to Baldwin Street which was on my "must see" list (it's the steepest street in the world, go and visit!). Clean and comfy room, beautiful views across the town, there was even a balcony...

On the positive side is a good location and nice large room with a couple of chairs and good view. The bed was very soft so we didn't sleep well and unfortunately there was a large group in for breakfast the first morning no table available we had to understand that they hadn't had time to sort things out! Carpet...

Difficult access and parking. Nowhere to unload car (because of a queue behind) and then a very steep road to get cases up to the hotel lobby. No help in the lobby, they seemed a bit short of staff. Room was OK, clean and adequate facilities. Bed was comfortable. Shower was in a bath making access difficult for two oldies!...

The location is great as pointed out by most reviews, its a very quick walk to the octagon and malls etc The reception area is small and a bit dated, however the service was polite and efficient. I found my room very hot and I had trouble sleeping in the heat, the bed was comfortable though. As others have mentioned...

We arrived here in the rain to find the reception area was being updated and access was through the restaurant. Unfortunately the door to the restaurant was closed and despite banging on the door we could not gain access. We tried the reception door and rang the bell but still no answer. We were stood outside in the rain for...

Since our last review in July 2016, we've returned on three other occasions (all wonderful stays), but on this latest trip, we were given one of the recently refurbished rooms. I guess it was totally the luck of the draw in having such a room, but I thought that by giving readers plus the hotel some feedback, both would benefit....
