Chapel Apartments
Ranked #9 of 61 Dunedin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I stayed here this week while at a conference. The location was fabulous, right on the Octagon. Was clean and very tidy with all the mod cons. We had a two bedroom apartment and both rooms had ensuites. The upstairs lounge area was really nice with comfortable furniture.
The small issues that were a bit of a pain were that they only had earl grey tea bags - no regular ones and only one hot chocolate but heaps of coffee and sugar. The website said off street parking but when we got there only some apartments had allocated parking. We were told we could park across the road at the Wilson's carpark and we'd be reimbursed but that sounded like way too much mucking around. Luckily we found some parking on the street (although it took a few trips around the block as it was Saturday night and really busy). The website needs to be more specific.

Room Tip: Choose a room with allocated parking - check before booking.

The rooms we're tidy and the bathrooms are nice and clean.

But no service at the door just a whiteboard with our names and room numbers. Rude manager as he yelled at us over the phone well we where out for dinner with familie and friends.

Simply the best place I have stayed in NZ in four years of being here. Contemporary, stylish, unique. Superb! A breath of fresh air in the accommodation market!

Great value for money (the other two places in my top three are five star hotels that cost more than double the price of the Chapel Apartments)

Looking forward to going back in just over a week.

Thanks! Jean

Here for two nights with family. Superb location right in the centre of Dunedin. The apartments are excellent - ours was on 2 levels. Two bedrooms with en-suite showers on the lower level and a lounge with huge wall mounted TV and fully equipped modern kitchen upstairs. There was also a washing machine and tumble dryer - great after touring round New Zealand for a month. Parking is limited and although there is parking with meters on the road this is on a very steep hill. Alternatively there is Wilsons car park opposite and the Apartment owners will reimburse your fees. Despite the hill next to the Chapel it is a level walk in to town which is just minutes away. If you want to go to the cinema that is just 100 yards away. Also about a 10 minute walk away is Speights Ale House next to the brewery. If you like your beer try the $20 taster of 8 beers! . The food looked good as well though we chose to cook - and make use of the apartment facilities. It is a novel place to stay but would recommend it. Although there is no reception and just a note of which room you are in, you can talk to the owners on the free phone and someone visits each day.

I had the pleasure of staying at Chapel apartments.It was well appointed with wonderful furnishings and a very unique setting within an old church. The beds were very comfortable and there was ample space to entertain and to cook and it was very clean. It is well situated nearby to other great restaurants. There was no one there to greet us but they were at the end of the phone if we needed anything which was not a problem at all.

I would highly recommend Chapel Apartments to anyone wanting a luxurious and convenient place to stay.

Room Tip: Very unique

We booked this hotel from the beautiful photos on line, big mistake. We arrive to find no one around, our name and room code advertised on a board in the main foyer for everyone to see. Our car park already taken. We get inside & it looked nothing like what I had booked & paid for. The first thing you notice was an awful smell & It was dark & filthy. I couldn't wait to get out of this place. The only good thing I can say about the place was it was in a good location. This place is hugely over priced. Apartment 1 is disgusting.

We were surprised to arrive and no one there to see us. There was a piece of paper at the door to say which apartment we were in. Not very cosy, but very smartly decorated. Rooms were comfortable. Apartments are very close to central Dunedin which was good.
