The owners were very nice and friendly, all their recommendations (food, places to visit) were great, they were real locals and looked after us very well, nothing was too difficult. The room was spacious, very clean and had all the facility we needed (free WiFi for multiple devices, parking, cooked breakfast option delivered to our room, etc), beds were comfortable...

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms very clean and they had comfortable beds. Located close to beach, cbd, and shops. Free parking and DVD rentals. Stop in and say hello to the turtle Franklin and dog Max.

We stayed two nights here in a king studio room. We stayed at a lot of hotels and these was my favourite. The employees were helpful with things to do around town and were very friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. They had a large selection of DVDs which were mostly new. The bathroom was large...

In short: fantastic place to stay. Our decision to stay here was based on reviews on this site. The hosts, Richard and Sue, together with Jason were simply the best. Greeted warmly upon arrival and tips given as to good places for dinner that evening. Also indicated on a map for us. Location was fine for us as it's only...

Tidy and spacious and clean room, well equipped bathroom and kitchenette. Fantastic hosts - they really went the extra mile including turning on electric blankets and heaters in our rooms when we were out on a cold night, drove us to and picked us up from our conference venue when it was raining. They were happy to store our luggage...

Stayed at the Best Western 555 On Bayview while visiting Dunedin for work. The room I stayed at had been completely redone and everything was spotless. Very comfortable bed, desk space to work and big screen TV. The bathroom was a decent size and the shower was phenomenal. The managers and staff are very nice and helpful. I chose to...

This place was excellent. The room was spacious, the people who worked there were friendly and capable, and the service was prompt. I could not believe how big and nice the bathroom, kitchenette, and storage were. I only stayed for a weekend, but I could have comfortably stayed for at least two weeks. Everyone who worked there was warm and...

We loved our 3 nights at 555. Great location just outside the main CBD, a few local eateries were ok but we ended up mostly eating in town. Bed was the comfiest we had through our whole trip and the hosts were so helpful with knowledge of local attractions, orientated us to our room and clearly very proud of their...

I knew this would be a good stay from the initial phonecall booking the room, when the man on the line wanted to know when I would arrive, so he could get the heater on and warm the room for me. The hosts were very hospitable, and did their utmost to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They pointed...

The Best Western Dunedin is a not a view property, it's a spectacular property ... run by two of the finest hosts (Richard and Sue) that I've ever met. For those of you used to BW properties in the States, this is much different and greatly exceeds those U.S. BW hotels. Everything was spotless clean. There was a large, slim-screen...
