Aurora On George, Dunedin, New Zealand
Modern, Quiet, Comfortable
After a couple of “dodgy” nights of hotel quality in Christchurch, we hit the jackpot a couple of days in a row in Dunedin. The hotel staff was, as always in NZ, just exceptionally nice, (walked us to our room, gave us some details on the unusual history of the place (it’s actually been split in two, which is to say that half of the hotel is literally a completely different hotel now). The grounds of the small but nice inner courtyard were immaculately kept, and it was QUIET. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and modern (and we LOVED the heated floor) and the kitchenette facilities were all new and in good working order. We would absolutely stay here again.

The best of the best
I had a lovely week here and I have stayed at many Dunedin places and this is the best. You would think it was brand new.Its in a great part of town, on the bus route into town , or walkable . The bed was wonderfully comfortable, that bathroom had a heated floor. I made toast each morning although I did have bacon and eggs one morning in a wee caffeine the grounds. And the very best of all was sitting in the sun in my room reading the complimentary newspaper looking out onto the beautiful garden. The owners are friendly helpful and very nice people.
