“Historic Hotel with value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

This hotel started life about 130 years ago, and has some interesting grand old furnishings in public areas. We have stayed 3 times before heading for tramps in the Southern Alps and have found staff helpful and facilities adequate. They have a locked luggage room so you can store things not needed when going 'bush'.
Rooms range in size from back-packers to various en-suite, and reasonable prices to match. All have reasonably up to date facilities, are clean and bedding comfortable. The lowest priced are fairly small. But don't expect luxury. It is a very central hotel directly across from the railway staton.
The dining room provides good breakfasts (continental and cooked), over quite an extended time band. Other meals can be arranged.
The convenience of situation makes this hotel ideal for a short stay or stop-over in Dunedin.

Room Tip: Try to overlook the internal coutyard, or secondly away fro railway station side.

We have stayed here twice now and find it good value for money. It is suited to budget travellers and back-packers which we have been each time. Make sure you get a room on the inside of the building, it over looks a small courtyard. The rooms on the outside are on a main road and VERY noisy. The grand old dining room has a great atmosphere, and the cooked breakfast is excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms on the inside overlooking the courtyard are a must for quietness

The room was cold, fairly drab; location was good; just cold. Staff were generally quite good, except one girl on reception who was rude.

Came for world cup match and paid too much for a suite which was dated and on the corner of two main roads. Shower too low and people could see into bathroom if they wanted. No complimentry tea or coffee despite kettle etc. Crappy small tv. Asked for late check out. Denied. Crap crap crap.

There is no doubt that it hasn't had a facelift in a while (if ever) but we found it decent enough. The staff were ok to deal with. There is not a whole lot in the immediate area but the quad or whatever it's called is only a few minute walk away as is the main town centre. It is absolutely not luxurious or anything but for a short stay I would say there is nothing wrong with it.
It probably would be no harm for them to invest in some paint and new furniture.

This is more like a boarding house than a hotel, with dated and clunky furnishings. That said, it is clean with comfortable enough beds and adequately working showers. It's not the sort of place you would want to stay in for more than 1 or 2 days. The location is fine, just outside of the main commercial drag of Dunedin. The reception staff was friendly enough if appearing a bit jaded.

I stayed in the backpackers dorm which was a small, dark and cold room which only had 1 heater that didnt work very well. They did provide us with another heater on the 2nd night so it was alot warmer with 2!
The location is good - about 10 minutes to the city and supermarkets.
The kitchen was compact but in good condition and the showers and toilets were well maintained.
The staff were not very friendly or helpful which was unfortunate.
The TV room on the 1st floor was cosy and had quite a number of sofas to choose from!
Overall an ok hostel which needs updating and more heating!
