“Nice Stay and Helpful Owners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

I stayed here one night and I must say they were very helpful and ver accommodative. We booked for 2 nights and over plans changed and they let us leave one night early without charging us. Great service. If I go back to Dunedin I would surely go back there.

Stayed March 2014, travelled on business

My wife was with me for this two-night stay and we were split over the ratings for Farrys. Mde thought it was too small, especially the bedroom, and too expensive. She hated the net curtains screening the walkway/balcony. I was away at meetings during the day so my impressions were a little different.
Yes, everything has been shaved down to minimum dimensions, including the parallel fence-line parking spaces (which took some negotiating on the slope) but to be fair, it had all we needed, clean and tidy, excellent wi-fi, a proper dining table, no-hassle check-in, check-out. I'd stay again.

Had a two night stay in a Premiere Terrace Suite which was lovely, one of the best apartments we have stayed in during many years travelling. Manager was very friendly and personally showed us to our Apartment and through the apartment when we arrived. We had had a few dramas before our arrival due to three persons from our seven person group pulling out just prior to travel resulting in us having to change our booking twice before arrival and this was done for us with no problems at all.
Apartments are in a great position, just a short walk to George Street shops and restaurants and easy walking distance from Forsyth Barr Stadium where we were attending an event. Although it was University O Week and Dunedin was very busy we did not have any problems with noise, which we would have expected in a location so close to the Central City and University.

This little "gem" is situated within walking distance to the city and our upstairs unit was very spacious, clean and comfortable with good Wifi, and very well appointed kitchen. The adequate breakfast consisting of cereal, eggs, toast, jam spread, and yoghurt was included in the tariff. The use of the laundry facilities was complimentary. Linen and furnishings were clean and it was a pleasure to stay here. Highly recommend a stay if you want a comfortable unit close to the city area.

The room we had was very clean and spacious enough for my wife and I and my 2 young girls.

The kitchenette was well equipped and complimentary coffee and tea were part of the package.

Walking distance from town centre was an added bonus.

Highly recommended.

Visiting Dunedin for a week for the bi-annual marine mammal conference at the University of Otago, we stayed here for five nights in December of 2013. If returning to do anything at the University I would stay here again and highly recommend it to others. Clean, blazing fast Wifi connection for NZ, very close to both campus and the main eateries and bars on George St, this place turned out to be very comfortable and well worth the cost. The have free laundry and off street parking at no extra cost. Our room was on the second floor, and almost every night we were woken to large groups of students returning to dorms or off campus housing after long nights of heavy drinking. This didn't bother us too much, much a part of the experience of city life in the Southern Hemisphere.

Room Tip: If you are upstairs the rooms are quieter.

Two of us shared a one-bedroom apartment for 9 days. We were attending a conference at the Univ of Otago, which was very easy walk. Apt was well equipped for cooking full meals, and a supermarket about 10-minute walk away. Didn't hear the neighbors nor the street. Clean, comfy beds, wonderful staff. The wifi was superb - fast, and steady. Two flat-screen TVs and a DVD, radio in the bedroom. Fairly busy street, but we could not hear traffic as we were in the rooms towards the back. Free washer/dryer. Excellent price, great value - I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: As for a room away from the street - it is a tad busy.
