Positive Reviews

Ideal location to explore central Dunedin

For those that want to stay in the heart of Dunedin, few places provide the convenience of this particular hotel, according to the accounts of guests. Major points of interest like the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, Dunedin Railways and Cadbury World Dunedin are reportedly within comfortable walking distance.

Welcoming and helpful staff

With regards to customer service, the staff members of the hotel produce positive feedback from travellers. The front desk personnel are particularly noted for their accommodating and welcoming attitude.

Spacious rooms with views

Some aspects of the rooms are complimented by guests of the hotel. Clean and with plenty of space for moving around, most rooms are also said to provide picturesque views of the city.

Negative Reviews

Tired and in need of an update

When it comes to overall condition, the hotel's rooms are criticised by travellers. The rooms are described as outdated and requiring significant updates. One of the issues raised is that the rooms are missing out on air conditioning, which can cause them to get overly stuffy during the summer.

Parking a potential headache

Although on-site parking is free, this aspect of the hotel is not judged in a favourable light by guests. As well as accessibility issues, the parking lot is said to only have a limited amount of spaces available – to the point where visitors often have to use alternative parking solutions nearby.

Wi-Fi service a disappointment

The Wi-Fi service at the hotel is something that generates disparaging comments from travellers. Along with its range and reliability coming under question, the limited free data provided is especially lambasted by those that utilise the service.
