simple stop over no problems

Pleasant Stay
Originally booked a room with a spa bath but had to change that on arrival as access to that room was a bit too much for a couple of gold card holders. More suited to a mountain goat. Only gripe we had was that the wifi dropped out regularly

Enjoy your stay
It’s an older hotel but very spacious rooms. Because it’s a bit older it does creek st night.

Stayed in worse hotels, but......
I've stayed in a lot worse hotels than this, but the lingering odor of old, and food, and just unpleasantness was too much for me, and I cut a two day stay in half. They have made an effort to upgrade obviously old interiors and the staff was nice and well meaning, but for me this is a hotel you would stay in if there was no other vacancies elsewhere and you were facing a last resort situation.

nvenient place to stay in Dunedin
Convenient place to stay for central Dunedin and the University of Otago. 24-hour shop across the road was an asset too. The only significant challenge I had was getting my room cleaned at times that suited me. Otherwise, a good place.
