Kingsgate Hotel Dunedin
Ranked #39 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Reviewed 15 December 2012

This hotel is in a great location about two minutes walk from the Octagon (the centre of the CBD).
Shops, bars, restaurants are nearby and there s a supermarket about 10 mins walk away.
The room had a nice view over the CBD. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms seem to have been recently renovated. The cleanliness of the bathroom was excellent.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
I will be staying here next time I visit Dunedin.

My 2 daughters and I only stayed 1 night in Dunedin however we found the Kingsgate to be ideal. It is superbly located, parking was fine ( although it's a bit scary when you are used to flat car parks!) and the room service we ordered for dinner was tasty. All the staff we encountered were friendly and professional. I would recommend this hotel as a value for money, well located and well run establishment. Thanks.

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms have balconies, but it's great to see the lights of Dunedin at night.

I have reviewed this hotel before, but as we come and stay quite often i would like to say a little more about this hotel, The location is great, just a short walk to town and every thing you need, ie shops movies etc, the hotel has been getting a make over with new carpet paint etc, the rooms are very fresh and modern. We arrived late in the day quite tired as we had spent the day at the hospital with our son, we ordered a evening meal off room service which arrived promptly and was of excellent quality. If you book in advance with grab a night you can pick up some really good deals. Value for money its great, once again thanks for a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: They are all good

Conveniently located, easy to find and plenty of parking spaces which required no advance booking. The room was clean, quiet and very comfortable.

There was an iron in the room which was very convenient.

We were supposed to stay 2 nights at this hotel in October. When we arrived at the hotel around 6pm we were advised by the receptionist that we had been relocated to the Mercure Dunedin due to renovations to the hotel (Kingsgate). The receptionist, to her credit, was very apologetic and gave us directions to the Mercure. Our original booking, made more than a month prior, was for a balcony room with city views, car park and breakfast included. When we arrived at the Mercure we found that our room faced the fire escape, and therefore had no city view, and also that no breakfast or car park were included! Due to telephone problems at the Kingsgate, we were forced to drive back there ourselves in order for them to confirm breakfast and carpark with the Mercure.

While the receptionist at the Kingsgate was apologetic and helpful and we were eventually given an upgrade for the 2nd night of our stay back at the Kingsgate, this could all have been avoided had more care been taken when relocating us in the first place. (We discovered that the room at the Mercure had only been arranged at 4pm that afternoon! Also we were not contacted about any of this AT ALL prior to our arrival!)

When we wrote to the manager of the Kingsgate to ask for an explanation for our frustrating experience, we were left even more frustrated at his single, unsatisfying response and lack of further contact.

A frustrating and unpleasant experience.

Stayed two nights at this hotel in October. The room was a good size and very clean. Decor was very modern. Carparking may be a problem if arriving late, we managed to get the last park. However the website does state limited carparking so we expected it could be an issue. We had a bed and breakfast package which was great value for money. Staff were polite and helpful. Great location for our stay in Dunedin.

The rooms are on the smallish size,but very clean and very quiet (no road noise). Impressed by the modern decor of the room & the beds were extremely comfortable. Car parking was no problem. I found all staff I talked too, to be very polite & courteous on all occassions.
Centrally located to shops & restaurants. Will stay then again when visiting Dunedin.
