Sahara Guesthouse is fairly centrally located, and it has plenty of parking. It is about a 15 min walk to Dunedin downtown. We stayed at the main building (the old mansion), on the second floor.
The room was fairly spacious, with high ceilings, which was one of the nice things about it. It has big windows so lots of light. There was a bathroom in the room (one separate room for the toilet, and one separate room with a sink and a tub). There was no shower in the room, those were shared among the other rooms on the floor. The tub in the bathroom didn't have a shower head, so one couldn't shower in the room, only take an actual bath. There was carpet in the bathrooms, something I haven't seen in a very long time. The rest of the room and the hotel was quite old - outdated furniture and carpets.
Despite the outdated and old, the rooms and bathrooms were clean. The mattress was comfy enough and there was plenty of hot water.
There is a small restaurant that serves breakfast in the morning and then a kitchen/TV room. The TV room was a bit messy, the garbage wasn't taken out and it was overflowing, and the dishes for general use were a little questionable.
The service was good, no complaints there.
If I were to come back to Dunedin, I'd probably try to stay at Hogwarts or similar, but this place was sufficient for the price.
