Not where i will reccommend in future to anyone

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Dec 2023via mobile
Customer service from front desk and breakfast was average. The room was dissapointing. Old,worn and not well maintained. However, very clean. Great job housekeeping. The room did not supply a toilet brush. And most dissapointing there was no hot chocolate in the room or at breakfast. The view from the room balcony over town was okay. Very close proximity to the centre of town. Parking avaliable but difficult for large vehicles.
Date of stay: December 2023
Room Tip: Off street parking is avaliable however can be diffucult to enter and exit for bigger vehicles
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Great location but that's where it ends.
Both restaurants were closed except for breakfast. Booked a junior suite with a balcony expecting something above average but it wasn't. No furniture on the balcony and the hotel is dated and requires a major refurbishment.

Room tip: Restaurants are closed so check before booking.

The hotel is in a great location, just above the Octogen, however it is dated. We felt we were back in the 70's. But the bed was comfortable and the room sunny. I also think the hotel needs to move away from all the plastic! mini milks, jams, butter etc at breakfast, shampoo and conditioners as well as the soaps wrapped in plastic!

This is my fourth stay at the Kingsgate Dunedin and it was great as always. The hotel is centrally located, just a 2 minute walk from the Octagon and an easy walk to everywhere else I needed to go. The rooms are clean, well equipped and secure and the beds are really comfortable. the staff are friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast (included in the room rate) was basic but perfect for us. They have very limited parking but it is free to park on the street overnight if you miss out, you just have to remember that street parking is metered from 9am.
Thank you Kingsgate staff, we will stay again.

Hotel is excellent for its location in the CBD as I was attending a conference at the Dunedin Centre across the road. Also great for shopping and proximity to restaurants and cafes.
The one bedroom was spacious and well-appointed however some of the furnishings were dated and past their best. Blackout curtains would be nice. The bed was very comfortable and cosy, ensuring a good night's sleep and there was good heating and bathroom amenities.
Such a shame there is no longer an evening restaurant on site though...

This was booked as an alternative to the motel options available in Dunedin (having experienced a wide range of these in previous stays).

We booked two rooms - one was modernised with new looking balcony with new doors and balustrades, and a new ceiling with nice lights; the other was retro with no ceiling lights, stipple ceiling, with old sliding doors and balustrades (it's apparent they are upgrading this over time). Both rooms were great for our family - beds very comfortable, bathrooms great, and overall a very clean and tidy look.

Continental breakfast was included in our bookings - we didn't think much of what we saw of the cooked breakfast offering, and what we had available was more than sufficient with ample cereal options, yoghurts, bagels, croissants, juices and coffee (so don't recommend the upgrade to a cooked breakfast).

Staff were very friendly and helpful - one of whom went out of their way to retrieve a library book we left behind in one of the rooms.

Excellent value for money - way better than any other place we've stayed in Dunedin. We will definitely look to stay here again next time.

Room tip: If they run out of croissants, ask the front desk to replenish them (they seem to ration them out to stop you eating too many!).
