Fair 4.0
Unable to contact manager to resolve problems
The check in whiteboard in the main lobby gave our apartment number & keypad code for access but no indication that Apt 3 wasn't in the main building so it took me quite a while to realise I had to go out of the building, along the street, round the corner into the next street and up the hill to find the apartment in an annexe behind the main building! The apartment itself was lovely, well-equipped, very clean and quirky (the bedroom & bathroom were on a mezzanine up a spiral staircase) being originally a church. The heat pump & heated bathroom floor worked very well. BUT although the TV worked fine in the afternoon, in the evening all we got was sound & no picture. WiFi was erratic & unreliable to the extent that it was unusable. We tried many times to contact the manager but the phone in the lobby with a button for "Manager" just got the engaged tone. The room guide had an 0800 number that was wrong (or out of date) and a mobile number that just went to answerphone. The guide also had a note from "Hannah" (the Manager was "Jon" elsewhere) about WiFi problems over the holiday season that should be fixed in the New Year (!) Other information in the guide was obviously out of date too, e.g. the heat pump instructions said to put a key card in a slot, neither of which existed; there were references to Cadbury World and the Cadbury factory, which closed in 2018 and 2019, respectively, so we eventually decided that the phone numbers must also be out of date and gave up with them.

Great location, quiet and spacious apartment, it has everything you need. Will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Dunedin.

Very good 8.0
Great if you want to be in the thick of it
Great location (right near the octagon) and unique accommodation are the real attractions. The major draw back is that the owners/mnagers are off-site so check-in is a little fiddly but not difficult and there seems to be no disabled access/lifts if you needed this. Parking in this part of town can be tricky also.
Brendan, nz3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Clever restoration, squeezing apartment boxes inside the chapel without harming the heritage listed building. Given that this meant only one small opening window, I would not want to stay more than a few days. Great service and location... just not pleasant marinating in my own farts (due to bathroom and bedrooms having no fresh air.

Fantastic facilities, no expense spared in fitting out this place, loved it! And so convenient to the central city!

Great location, and parking included
We stayed in a studio apartment on New Years Eve. Needed somewhere close to the centre of Dunedin, but not close enough to be noisy. Very useful to have parking as it was very busy. The apartment was well-furnished and very clean, and had everything we needed. One small problem was that the set-top box was in a different part of the room to the TV, and out of range from where I was sitting, which made it a bit awkward. Otherwise, all well.

Good 6.0
Great location and nice furnishings , however the bed squeaked badly and was saggy in the middle. Shower set up is overly complicated and is broken so our shower taps leaked badly Also the windows are filthy on the outside and need regular cleaning. Could be a lot better fit the price charged

Pretty unique but really good! Lots of space with everything you need. Really enjoyed it. Some apartments don't have parking space which is annoying as the pay and display over the road was full. Not a huge deal, just took time to find a parking space.
