About Highland House

At a restored Edwardian property in Dunedin's northern suburbs, Highland House Boutique offers accommodation in self-contained studio units. Found five minutes’ drive from the Forsyth Barr Stadium, this property provides perks like free parking and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Along with a private bathroom, each of the ten studios features a kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. Modern conveniences such as flat-screen TVs provide the perfect contrast to the studios' period fittings.

This smoke-free property offers conveniences such as laundry facilities and luggage storage. Guests may book individual studios or, in the case of larger groups, the entire property outright.

Tea and coffee-making facilities are provided for guests as standard. For meals, nearby dining options include the Bracken Restaurant and Savoury Japan – both just one mile from Highland House Boutique .

This property is a ten-minute walk from Dunedin Botanic Garden and a little over two miles from the Unity Park Lookout. St Kilda Beach is a 15-minute drive from the property.

Positive Reviews

Characterful property makes a good impression

These studios are continually described in reviews as being unique and rather quirky. Guests tend to appreciate the blend of historic charm and modern convenience offered in the rooms at this place.

Amenities are up to scratch

All the essential amenities in the studios prove satisfactory, judging from traveller reviews. In particular, guests find the Wi-Fi to be fast and reliable, while also noting that the showers are excellent. There is also praise for the cosy beds.

Negative Reviews

Tricky to control the temperature

Guests explain that they can find it tricky to control the temperature in the units here. A combination of no air conditioning and windows that are often jammed shut makes for an unpleasant atmosphere on warm days. In addition, those guests in need of a bit of heating when staying during cold weather find the provisions to warm up the studios can be fairly inadequate.

Cleanliness can cause concern

Guests have mixed feelings about the cleanliness standards at this place. There are claims in reviews that the units could often do with a deeper clean to address issues such as dusty surfaces, dirty carpets and insufficiently cleaned bathrooms.

Location not for everyone

Guests with their own transport should find plenty to like about the location of this property. However, those who are relying on public transport and taxis often find the accommodation is a little too far from the city centre to be convenient. A lack of amenities within walking distance helps to create the impression that the location is not to the taste of all guests. Light sleepers also note that certain rooms facing the road can be exposed to nuisance traffic noise at times.
