Comfortable beds and shared lounge. However one toilet for at least 17 rooms doesn't seem adequate, nor does the two showers. Decor is outdated but tidy. Shared lounge with free condiments was a plus.

In Dunedin for a week and stayed here in the Guest House rooms. It was perfectly adequate for my needs. Location is excellent, and it was good value too. The house was warm (in the middle of winter) and clean.

Date of stay: June 2018
