Neville and Sandra are running a lovely, spotless, serene, and beautiful hotel. We travel quite a bit and this was such an amazing surprise for us - to find one of our all-time favorite hotels on our trip to visit our daughter. The photos do not do the beautiful, soothing color combos justice. The room is outfitted very nicely with...

On returning to Dunedin after a visit 2 years prior, it was comforting to know we'd be staying in such a fantastic property as the Bluestone. It's still spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet, and for a property that is about ten years old it looks like brand new. It's a credit to the owners.

Doesn't look like much from the outside - but it had such a nice ambience. We only spent one night - after visiting the Royal Albatross Centre. The room was really clean and bright and a reasonable size and had everything we needed. The colours were tasteful and the bed was comfortable and the shower was wonderful. We had a...

The Bluestone is exactly as advertised, small, friendly, great rooms, linens, service,hospitality views. Everything is immaculate. The owners work hard to make you feel welcome and attend to your every need. The hotel is very accessible, something important for my wife who uses a scooter. The location is perfect. Short walks to most of the Otago campus, downtown Dunedin, the...

This is the first place we stayed on our first visit to NZ. Our flight arrived around 2am and the owners were very accommodating in making sure we had access to our room even though the front desk was closed. They gave us some great recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants as well. The room itself was immaculate, spacious and the...

We stayed two nights in this impressive hotel. Great facilities and very well appointed. This was our last nights on a two week holiday around the South Island with our friends. Highly recommend a stay and the owners really take pride in this accomodation.

Located on quiet part of a central street in Dunedin, a brief walk from University of Otago or from central city, the property is set back a bit from the street, on a small hill. Although a motel, it is very nicely designed and constructed, and rates highly compared to other options in this quaint city. Immaculate and very well...

Marvellous! Neville the manager was brilliant throughout. Strongly recommended. Close to all the city amenities and sites. Bluestone is definitely at the high end for this type of accommodation- really enjoyed it.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else. This is perfect. They have thought of everything for a cosy, stylish stay right on the fringe of everything you could want. Quiet, with beautiful views and places to relax inside and outside.
