This time last year we were 'wowed' by the Edinburgh Suite (Luxury) ....this year we were unable to book this suite and instead stayed in The Wickliffe Room (Premium) .and were again wowed.Obviously there is a price difference and it is NZ$145 per room per night - as there should be - the facilities are very much in keeping with the price - it would be naive to think otherwise.The Standard rooms are cheaper again ($125 less than Premium) ...and are priced accordingly - it all depends what you require.
The rest of the service is identical - magic breakfasts , safe secure parking ,all the bells and whistles - nothing spared plus wonderful hosts.
Dunedin itself is a wonderful city - but like most cities it can be a bit frayed around the edges ( can't think of a single city without graffiti - can you?) - Fletcher Lodge is not frayed in any respect . Stay in hotels NEVER ( well sometimes you have no choice) - give me personally hosted, owner operated, luxury B&B's any day.Dressed with history and I am home in one - B&B heaven if you like..Maybe next time I will sample a standard room - I am sure I will not be disappointed - it's the service,location and the hosts that count for me every time - and Fletcher Lodge has this in 'spades' (- they are 5 mins from the Casino too...if you need a flutter!)
To be honest I would have given Fletcher Lodge a '6' but Trip Advisor thinks a '5' is max!
