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.

There are great views of Dunedin from this B&B. It is high up on the hill but you can walk down into Dunedin in 15 minutes or so. And then there are plenty of taxis for a $10NZ back up the hill afterwards. It is a beautiful old house with a lovely, helpful hostess. I felt the breakfast could have been better - the egg soufflés were a bit tasteless, but we enjoyed our stay. But note there are lots of stairs up to the house and inside.

Loved our spacious room with the stained glass window and comfortable bed. Cally 's suggestions of places to visit were acted upon and thoroughly enjoyed. We managed the walk up from the town - it is good exercise after an evening meal and only takes 20/25 minutes. Breakfast was one of the best of the holiday and we had been spoilt by other hosts. A great stay. Thank you.

Hilltop by name , and hill top it was. Reaching it by foot was a great exercise in itself, which one does welcome during a holiday which involves so much good food an drinks!!! Our hosts Cally and Lloyd were so very friendly, kind and helpful and discreet. There was definitely an "artist air" about the place, and a lot of interesting pictures and antique articles, each with a story. After a great breakfast, we'd happily visit places for the whole day, and return to be welcomed by our hosts and invited to share our experiences over a few glasses of wine. And may I point out that in their spare time, both Cally and Lloyd are renovating an interesting old church in Dunedin to provide for their orchestra an acoustically-safe venue for rehearsals, and generally for Dunedin , a historic building accessible to performing artists etc. Admirable and community spirited is how I would like to describe our hosts!

Cally was the perfect hostess and suggested restaurants and places to visit. We had a large room on the ground floor with a stained glass window above the bed. Breakfast was very good. Hilltop is an imposing century old house at the top of the High street with great views over Dunedin.

Cally and Lloyd were perfect hosts and offered good suggestions for places to eat and things to do during our stay. The room was large with a stained glass window over the bed! It was very comfortable. Cally's breakfasts were delicious and set us up for the day. A great place to spend an enjoyable few days. (We stayed from 4-7 January 2016 but only reviewing on our return to the UK.)

This place is incredible. The rooms are AWESOME! The views are great. Our guide, John Fitzwater of GoTourNZ booked us here and he always knows the best places. But the best thing here was our introduction to Vogel's bread at breakfast.

Hilltop is a stately century old house which has large, beautifully furnished rooms. Cally and Lloyd were the perfect hosts who turned on our electric blankets when we went out to a show and then got up at 4am to light a fire, provide tea, coffee and toast for us while watching an All Black rugby game live on their large screen TV! This was way better than home!! Breakfasts were great and served using elegant tableware and silver. Hilltop is in a quiet location with lovely views and a garden setting; close to city and within walking distance but car access is preferable. We thoroughly recommend this boutique bed and breakfast.

this house is marvellous. We had a beautiful view over Dunedin from our room as well as from the breakfast table. Cally was very helpful with booking some sightseeing for us and cooked a very tasty breakfast. The room was large and the bathroom very good. The furniture suits the lovingly restored historical house. We liked it very much.

Excellent in every way. A very friendly welcome from Cally, who helped us with our heavy cases, a very strong lady! Super views over the harbour at breakfast time. And what a breakfast. Nowhere else will you get a soufflata. The house is so tastefully decorated and the rooms are large and the bed comfortable. Cally went to extraordinary lengths to find a particular wine to celebrate my birthday. Our comfort was her main concern and what a great sense of humour. It was our last day in New Zealand and we had to repack our cases etc, yet Cally was generous with her time and did not 'kick us out' on the dot - for which we were most grateful. Wouldn't stay anywhere else if I visited Dunedin again.

Are you ready for a touch of history blended with class? Then book this very lovey restored historical home with hosts who do it right. We really enjoyed our stay and learned quite a bit from our kind and knowledgeable hosts. Luxury all the way. Service amazing and not at all what you would expect. When you walk in the door you know you have found something out of the ordinary. If you are riding the rail trail and taking the train into Dunedin stay here for a bit of luxury and pampering, you deserve it.
