I stayed here for two nights for a business trip.
My initial impression of the accommodation was that it was akin to student digs. The decor and facilities were dated and there were layers of hairs and dirt around the base of the shared shower facilities. This property was built in the 1930's and the kitchen etc looked like it hadn't been touched since.
That aside, the room seemed adequate, despite having an overwhelming smell of chemicals from sprays etc, which started me coughing. Against my better judgement I decided not to be so judgemental and stay the duration.
On return to my home I came down with what I thought was a severe chest infection, and just put it down to the damp of Dunedin in winter. Two courses of antibiotics later, I was hospitalised with breathing difficulties. Tests have shown it wasn't a bug as suspected. The only hypothesis we could ascertain is that it was a severe reaction to the chemicals used at this property, which I breathed in whilst staying there. I am contacting environmental health.
