We only spent one night in Dunedin to avoid an expensive direct flight to Queenstown from Brisbane, AU. The location is favourable, with The Octagon (city centre) just down the road.
We booked online and requested a high floor and was pleasingly given a room on level five (highest) facing east towards The Octagon and Otago Habour. This provided a great view over the city, whilst still allowing for the northern sunlight to shine through in the morning.
The room is a bit dated and could be revamped in the near future. It was small but adequate, fitted with a balcony, old television set, lounge, mini bar, kettle and tea and coffee. I remember the double bed to be quite soft and comfortable. The bathroom appeared to have been renovated not long ago as it appeared more modern than the rest of the room.
I had forgotten about the included buffet and did not take advantage of it. However, the Jimmy Cook's Kiwi Kitchen downstairs for dinner was quite tasty.
We didn't interact with the reception much, but they were very helpful with checking us in and providing directions, as well as baggage storage after we had checked out the next morning.
