We spent 4 nights at this hotel whilst attending a conference held at the Art Gallery in Dunedin.
Great central location - lots of fabulous restaurants near by. We arrived late on a Tuesday night - around 9.35pm. When asked, the receptionist invited us to have dinner in the hotel restaurant -warning us that the kitchen closed at 10pm. As it was bitterly cold we didn't feel much like going out for food so we dropped our bags in our room and headed back downstairs. We were the ONLY people in the restaurant and the staff were already setting tables for breakfast. They, however, gave us the warmest of welcomes, assured us that even though it was by now 9.45pm, that we could have anything we wanted from the menu. The food was great, but the very helpful and friendly staff really made our night.
The restaurant staff were equally delightful every morning at breakfast.
Our room was large, with two queen beds and plenty of space. Our only quibble was that the room heating was off when we arrived, and took quite a while to warm the space.
The hotel is only 2 blocks from The Octagon, so really is very central to everything. The room was quiet and the amenities nice.
The hotel has wi-fi which by NZ standards was not too expensive and was quite fast with good connections. There was an option which allowed you to connect up to four devices which was very handy.
Would definitely stay here again.
