Quiet haven in centre of city
Well appointed quiet rooms and very comfortable bed. It was the only hotel I have ever stayed at where there was no night noise from other guests or outside. We would definitely stay there again. The kitchen and laundry facilities were a bonus although we didn't make full use of them this time. Also separate bedroom with another TV while husband watched rugby was ideal.

All I can say is WOW!!!! This place is amazing! Friendly staff, very comfortable beds, no noise at all from outside and awesome shower. We also got to do all of our washing in the washing machine and dryer located in the bathroom! We extended our stay to 2 nights and could have stayed longer if we had time! Totally recommend this hotel as it is worth every penny!! Thank you!!!!

Lovely hotel
A lovely hotel in the centre of Dunedin. What a wonderful refurbishment of the old chief post office. Rooms were lovely and spacious. Bed extremely comfortable. Only small downside was the buffet breakfast priced at $30.00 per head was rather ordinary. But on the whole very nice.

Loved it !!
Absolutely loved staying at the Distinction Hotel. The hotel itself was luxurious and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Everything was so clean !! The location of the hotel was absolutely perfect as we could take a stroll to the Octagon and all the great restaurants in the area. Would definitely love to stay there when we go to Dunedin next :)
