2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Ebb is a modern boutique hotel that provides relaxed luxury for a restful pause on your journey. Inspired by the land, sea and sky that surround us, our contemporary neighbourhood hotel serves friends, locals and guests a slice of our unique way of life. Dunedin’s history was the inspiration for the hotel, co-designed by local lead architect Gary Todd and Sydney based interior architect Indyk Architects. The team wanted to respect the past and provide a modern influence for the future, Ebb is designed as a modernist building primarily of concrete, steel and glass. The hotel was named Ebb because of the site’s historic location on the edge of the tidal flats of the Otago Harbour before the land was reclaimed. Each level has its own distinct atrium lounge for guests to enjoy a drink or read a book, surrounded by the work of local artists exhibited on our walls. Ebb Dunedin is the perfect base to explore, escape or simply go with the flow. Dunedin is a unique destination, renowned for its music, food, wine and design. Surrounded by South Pacific Seas, it combines rugged and picturesque landscape, perfect for wild and woolly walks, with historic city sites and a buzzing contemporary city scene.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
On a night stop for business but a wonderful place. Really good architecture - winning a named architecture award in 2022, so one of the best commercial buildings in the country. Innovative layout, great textures, material use and generally pretty cool. Interesting managing of what is inside and what is out. I will stay again.

The hotel is excellent and located very conveniently in the heart of the city. The staff is professional and friendly. The rooms are spic and span. We stayed in a suite with two rooms and a living room. There is a small cafe downstairs which mainly caters to breakfast. But having said that there are lots of eateries all around and shopping area. Value for Money!

We were a group of four and stayed in the suite. There are lots of design in this hotel. The suite is super spacious with two en suite bedrooms and a huge living room with a full kitchen. Perfect choice for a family like ourselves. The hotel location is oerfect. Guests have access to a gym next door. It is the best hotel during our two week trip in the South Island.

Ebb Hotel: Where Modernist Design and Award-Winning Architecture Converge. Nestled in the heart of the city, this captivating inner-city oasis seamlessly blends contemporary design with a tranquil ambiance. Inspired by modernist principles, Ebb Hotel showcases clean lines, minimalist aesthetics, and innovative use of space. Its award-winning architecture, recognized by the New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA), is a testament to its exceptional design. The hotel's in-house cafe not only offers the best coffee on my trip but also boasts an atmosphere that perfectly complements its modernist design. For design enthusiasts seeking a sophisticated urban retreat, Ebb Hotel is an extraordinary choice.

Ebb is our go to hotel whenever we stay in Dunedin, this was our third visit and we will definitely have many more! Comfy beds, amazing location, just across the road from the Meridian mall, so quiet plus the convenience of a great cafe, makes it the perfect stay over for business or pleasure.

Great hotel within a 10 minute walk of the city centre. We enjoyed our stay at EBB-Dunedin. Arriving on Christmas Eve, Dylan, the part owner of the establishment, was very helpful finding us places to eat over the ensuing three days. The rooms are very spacious, indeed, ours was on the topmost floor with two huge bedrooms each with an ensuite, as well as a lounge and dining area with a small kitchen. The only downside is that their cafe on the ground floor was not open for all but the last morning of our stay. The hotel is reasonably priced - not cheap but not outrageously expensive either. Highly recommended.
