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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Spotless, welcoming, well appointed rooms. Excellent location and easy parking. Kitchenette allowed for a little cooking. Staff very friendly. Would happily stay there again.. good WiFi and a range of tv channels. Restaurant next door was good.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed for a couple of nights in a luxury executive studio and we wished we could've stayed longer. Outlook over the garden was so peaceful and lack of loud traffic noise great. The studio was spacious, spotless and couch was great to snuggle on at the end of the day and the bed was devine to sleep in! The two cookies on arrival was a nice touch, as was the sustainable wee mini milk bottle you get upon arrival. Adrienbe was a lovely, friendly host and one of the highlights was Cinder the cat following us up to our room on the second night, including a trip in the lift with us, and then spending half an hour telling us all the gossip from around the place in our bedroom 🤣 The studio room had some great facilities, including a great toaster, an invector microwave and a spa bath. The motion-sensing nite-light in the bathroom was a good idea to not blast your eyes in the middle of the night with a bright light if you needed to go to the bathroom, the AC was just the ticket for the very warm December nights we were there...honestly, just everything was so good. We will most definitely be back. Hopefully next time, we'll meet Tax the Jack Russell too! 😊 Bear and Sue

Response from Chris and Adrienne Roy, General Manager at Aurora on George
Responded 2 Jan 2023
Aaahhhh! We are just so pleased that you came and stayed with us and had a great time. I'll be sure to let Cinder know that she was a highlight and that her conversation was exceptional. She is curled up under the reception desk as I type - she must have spent another night gossiping! Just ask for Tax to check you in next visit! He is a treat - and a Cavoodle rather than a high energy Jack Russell (hehe). You just made my day!

Great place to stay, spacious well equipped room and helpful staff. Lovely extra touches like home made cookies and lavender bath salts. Nice and quiet yet handy to travel to attractions. Other guests were friendly and respectful. Felt like a home away from home.

Excellent accomodation! They had thought of so many little extras, such as underfloor heating and a night light in the bathroom. The laundry also had clothes horses we were able to use in the room, which I appreciated. The garden outside the rooms was lovely and the off street parking was free.

Fabulous place to stay! When I arrived, I was greeted by the owner, and she escorted me to my room. Pointed out its features and made sure I knew how to contact them if I needed to 10/10 Room was lovely, very clean and new looking (and the shower was amazing!!) Personal touches such as cookies and your name printed on your welcome notice. Great hosts!!!

Very nice, tidy and clean place. Has everything you need. Would suggest a smart tv but they have SKY so there are options. :) The outdoor area is such a peaceful place. They also have elevator, that is handy. I stayed in a good room.

Comfortable room with absolutely beautiful garden outside the rooms. Good location near the botanic garden and the university. The manager was very helpful with walking recommendations and dining options. Parking on site. First trip to Dunedin-wish we had been able to stay longer. Highly recommend this hotel.
