Stayed for one night in June the checking was good with welcome drink the room was well appointed bit of a rabbit Warren with old style lift the parking was expensive
The continental breakfast was sufficient as long as u did not want to pay for extra cost of a full breakfast coffee was a Xtra cost and I thought the price of the room with parking and coffee was little expensive but iI can't fault the service and sometimes that what u r paying for

This hotel is above a 5 Star rating. On entering the hotel you are greeted with friendly and helpful staff. A complimentary refreshing drink on arrival. Valet parking and luxurious reception. The rooms are well equipped and clean with espresso coffee machine and pods not just the usual instant coffee as other hotels. From the moment you enter to the time you leave you are treated as royalty. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they go out of their way to help or advise. The food in the restaurant is exceptional and I would highly recommend the restaurant. I cannot thank you enough for making my birthday weekend a most luxurious and relaxing one. I look forward to visiting more of the Fable Hotels and Resorts in the near future. Well done

I don't know why anyone would stay anyone else. The modern boutique hotel, Fable, was unpretentious, the rooms were spacious, and the beds extremely comfortable. Some of the noteworthy features are Nespresso makers in the rooms, massive flatscreen TV, and a ton of free movies (both blockbuster old releases and new releases). The hotels greatest assetts however, are the staff. Special thanks to Charlotte and Mohammed at the front desk and concierge who checked us in, and concierge extraordinaire Quenton - member of the exclusive Clefs d'Or - if you know you know, and if you don't google it. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was gourmet excellent. Do not look for any other hotel in Dunedin.

Room tip: Fable offers a $30 valet parking but you can find street parking for $3 an hour , but free from 6PM to 9AM

A highlight of staying here was Hayden the enthusiastic & knowledgeable concierge. He is by far one of the hotel’s best assets.
This hotel is quirky with outstanding carpet decor.
There are lots of stairs so accessibility could be an issue for some.

Arrived to helpful staff Guru who phoned me when the room was available for an earlier check in which was much appreciated
Beautiful environment, gorgeous furnishings
and a comfortable bed in a cosy room was so welcome after a busy cold showery Dunedin day.
Would love to return and have more time to enjoy the hotel. The cocktails especially the Fable Special was presented very nicely!

Room tip: Busy in the bar but staff made space to accommodate us
