The B & B is located just at the edge of the city centre. It's surprisingly quiet at night. The room is spacious, warm and comfortable. The furnishings match the house very well. Every detail has been attended. It's like you have travelled back to the beginning of 19th century.
Stephen the host is very kind and accommodating and considerate. He offered us one extra room for my daughter with a small cost. The breakfast is typical kiwi style and plentiful. We were also glucky enough to have the bread freshly baked by Stephen.
Stephen REALLY knows the history of Dunedin. He also has quite a collection of the paintings and books about the city. I guess he knows the stories of all of the houses on High Street.
We totally enjoyed our stay at Highbrea Guesthouse.
