Our home away from home

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 19 Jul 2020
We stayed at the Dunollie Hotel for the entirety of Covid 19 lockdown (8 weeks), and for a further 7 days in June, with our two young girls.

We found an oasis; a home away from home. Ross and Lynette are terrific hosts, with a tremendous knowledge of the local history and great social connections to the community. Throughout the lockdown, our girls had toys to play with and cooking to help with, and space to run around and be themselves. With Ross and Lynette's unwavering generosity, the Dunollie Hotel transformed what should have been an arduous couple of months into a much-needed break from life on the road.

The showers are excellent, the food is excellent, the beer is excellent, the prices are excellent. As well as the quiet and calm living area, there is a lively and welcoming community around the bar.

To stay here is to be immersed fully in West Coast hospitality and culture. Ross and Lynnette are legendary publicans, and the passion they put into the Dunollie Hotel makes the place sing. They are the best hosts we found during our 7 month tour of New Zealand. We live on the other side of the world, but we will be back.

So Myself and a Friend went travelling around the South Island in New Zealand, we had nowhere to stay for the night, found the Dunollie Hotel on Google, as soon as we arrived, Lynette made us feel extremely welcome, had dinner when we arrived which was excellent, and stayed at the Bar for Drinks after, everyone was so friendly, had afew games of Pool with the locals and had great conversation with everyone, Lynette and Ross were great hosts and cannot recommend them enough for the friendly atmosphere they provided. If I'm ever in the area again I will definitely be staying for the night and to grab a drink with all the great friends myself and my friend made that night.
Fantastic.

Only needed a room for 1 night and this was perfectly adequate. The bed was comfy, clean with good sized tv. Excellent shower, AND a bath, although the shower room could do with a heater. Good value for money

Reviewed 28 June 2017

Okay, so we were expecting budget and basic and booked two rooms to accommodate our party. While there was heating in the rooms there was no heating in the passages and communal areas - including the ablutions, kitchen and dining - very cold. The kitchen is available for guests to use. The showers were good and had plenty of hot water. The whole place needs a good clean up, inside and out. We paid for two nights up front but forfeited the second night and didn't return. Disappointing.

Room tip: Ask to view before paying!

We stayed for 2 nights the beds were very comfy and got provided with 2 pillows and plenty of blankets which made bed super comfy! There is a bar attached to the front which we never got a chance to check out but by looks it looks pretty good! Good kitchen to use and comfy lounge!

Nice place here, in a quiet village 10 mins from greymouth. Friendly welcome from guy on the bar, who showed me around and to my cabin room. Twin bed, everything nice and clean

Wifi signal didn't reach outside but no bother, there was a comfy lounge with huge TV, equipped kitchen with fridge etc. Couple of showers with plenty of hot water. Wasn't disturbed by any of the drinkers! Slept well, comfy bed. Can't fault it for $60!im sure the locals would welcome you if you wanted a drink!
