We loved our stay last wk end. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The room was nicely set up, bed was very comfortable and large. Had a great shower and the complimentary toiletries were very nice. The hotel also offers some nice looking restaurants that we did not get to try, definitely will next time!

Great value for money, spacious and clean rooms, able to walk anywhere within central city (and Dunedin is a fabulous walking city, tons of character buildings and street art). Staff very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Our room was a great size and appeared to be recently painted, as it looked fresh. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff on arrival were friendly and helpful. I'd recommend - a good hotel in a good location.
