Our family of 4 (incl 2 teenage boys) stayed for 2 nights in late September 2013. This is a lovely hotel especially if you like places with some history and character. I'd requested a room close to the only available twin room (in which our boys stayed) and unfortunately this meant we ended up with a small room with a...

Thank you Kerrie for your kind words and comments about The Brothers and for encouraging Ciaran in his music. With respect to the room size I have endeavoured to highlight where ever possible to all considering staying at The Brothers that most of our rooms are considered small (particularly for New Zealand). We could have knocked walls down and made...

Stayed one night at this uniquely individual hotel whilst on a quick tour of the South Island. Very clean, comfortable and quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed a glass of wine with the host prior to heading down the hill for dinner. We loved Dunedin and enjoyed a meal at Scotia located not far from the hotel. Would definitely stay again.

It is lovely the hosts make you feel welcome. It is a quick walk down hill to town and a cheap taxi ride back. The rooms are warm, well presented, the shower has a wet floor that almost runs the wrong way...into the room.

We had a lovely stay in this hotel. Lovely room with a kingsize bed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and the hotel is in a great location. Great host, very friendly welcoming and helpful. Evening chat with wine is a nice touch. We would certainly go back if we get the chance.

This is a charming place with more of a feel of a B&B than a boutique hotel. There are a LOT of stairs. Make sure you park around the back to get your luggage at least up one level before you start. Anyone who has a disability or a lot of luggage should really think again about this place. But...

I am sure you are a better person for airing your thoughts. The ranting to our Housekeeper over the missed complimentary breakfast however was over the top and unnecessary. Though very regrettable it was the first time since opening eight years ago that this has happened. A genuine misunderstanding with my our Housekeeper which I must take the blame for...

The hotel website is perfectly accurate and the welcome could not have been warmer. We did enjoy the cameraderie of the cocktail hour the owner hosted, and the room and WiFi were just fine. One should bear in mind this is a vertical hotel, so plan on stairs. The owner was kind and would have helped schlep our bags had...

We stayed here at the end of cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail.

Really great location in a fabulous town. The reception was very warm and helpful. He was enthusiastic about all the options available in town and the otago peninsula. Rooms are sparse but adequate- the lighting could be better. Loved the balcony view and large lounge area. The breakfast room is charming.

After travelling around NZ for a few weeks and experiencing quite a variety of accommodation styles, we were really hoping that our last few nights would be perfect. And they were! From the moment we arrived Rod made us feel extremely welcome, and spent some time advising us where we should go and what we should do. Our room on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to a special place in Dunedin. Relax in our European style family run Boutique Hotel close to inner city amenities with spectacular views of the City and harbour. Extensive renovations have been done to this former Christian Brothers 1920's stately residence transforming it into elegant heritage accommodation with 15 bedrooms and all with modern tiled en suites. The Brothers offers a mixture of convenience, history, charm, elegance and tranquillity, with the building retaining much of its original grandeur. Unfortunately the Hotel is unsuitable for infants, babies and young children under 16 and can't be accommodated. The Brothers is also quite different from anything else in Dunedin. The intention during the refurbishment was to be sympathetic to the building's history and wherever possible the original character has been retained. As a result most of our rooms are of a size often found in European Cities and maybe considered small by some. If room size is important to you or the prospect of walking 10 minutes uphill from the city centre is a daunting issue then other options maybe more suitable for you . A welcoming drink is offered early evening in the main Guest lounge. Book direct with us for better price and room options. ... more   less
