Will not be back
We had plumbing issues in our room, the toilet cistern was leaking and kept filling back up every 10 minutes which kept us up all night. The manager didn't really seem to care and we were only offered a room change for our last night. Also found faeces on our shower curtain! Not a pleasant stay. We will not be back again. Seems like this hotel is going downhill since the change of ownership.

Great views, great staff.
A really nice stay a bit out of Dunedin on St Clair beach. Good off street parking. Very nice staff. Room nice and the bed incredibly comfortable. Very handy to some nice places to eat. Would stay here again.

Comfort and relaxing

A few minutes to the Octogon but worth the trouble
Sadly only an overnight for us with an early morning departure but for quality and location beats our previous experience of downtown Dunedin hotels with only a few minutes extra drive to town required. But the upside of the sound and sight of the ocean night and day a consolation to die for. We will be back to this great hotel and perfect location
