Law Courts Hotel, Dunedin, New Zealand
Very Good8.0
Warm,clean room and welcoming staff. Food from the restaurant very nice and quick service. On the minus bathroom window would not shut and toilet seat slid all over the place (probably due to toilet suite placed awkwardly close to wall therefore not easy to sit normally on toilet). However, we would stay there again. We enjoyed the easy walking distance to many of Dunedins attractions and shopping.

100% And we had the room the Queen stayed in 1954
Sure, We were warned about night time road works, so that was ok, The Staff were amazing, The old hotel has the old bygone days feeling about it, but so good, and punters that drink there are so friendly, and the food WOW!

Will stay again
We were pleasantly surprised with our 3 night stay here. There were loads of positives - ie, location is right down town Dunedin, good unlimited free wifi, spacious room, good housekeeping, great shower pressure, nice towels, free parking. We were not bothered by noise, and although the lift was not so reliable and noisy when it got 'stuck' we managed to use it 90% of the time. A great value place to stay, just don't expect the Ritz.
