Winter weekend in Dunedin
Very nice hotel...lacked an onsite in-house bar and our view on the eastern side of scaffolding and walls wasn't the best - but overall a good weekend at a pleasant hotel with lots of character.
KRISTINE, nz2 night romance trip

It was ok.
Awesome staff. From reception to the cleaners. The hotel is under renovation so its difficult to be critical as room was tired and really needed updating which it will be getting. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice and quiet at nights. No road noise. Breakfast was included as well. Also has an awesome old manual lift that works perfectly. I hope they keep that piece of nostalgia with the renos. Central ish. We had no problems getting around by walking to and from town. We left the car parked up most days except when we went driving in the surrounds. When we felt a little lazy we hopped on a lime scooter😁

Very convenient and wonderful helpfulness at check in. It's about to undergo a refurb which is probably needed. Access to our room on the 4th floor was not great (no lift).

Great . But got the cheese tissue of room service menu as it was so small not worth the money. They did take some money of one of our drinks. So over all good.
