I stay here every time I come to Dunedin, for work or for university. The rooms are of good quality, and the hosts are helpful and welcoming. Location is great too, close to university, gardens and shops. Highly recommend this as the place to stay in Dunedin.

We recently stayed two nights at the Commodore in a two bedroom unit. The unit was spacious, clean, and positioned well back from the road, so very quiet. It was within walking distance of both the Botanic Gardens and Otago Museum. Great selection of DVD's for the whole family too.
