5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Handy to the city centre. Clean spacious rooms. Friendly helpful staff. Comfy beds. Room was a bit too warm. TV was muffled, something wrong with the volume? But wee didn't really go to watch the TV so not a real issue for us. Will be staying again for sure. Many thanks team :)

Stayed for 3 days and nights and really enjoyed our stay. The place is spotlessly clean, the staff superb and unobtrusive, the rooms spacious and quiet. A great lot of facilities in the room too.

Worst feature was the television which had lost some colour in the flesh tones and the poor choice of channels and how few you had to choose from. Because the Hotel is in the centre of the city you have to use their valet service for car parking and while i was worried about this it turned out to be superbly done and certainly well worth the small extra charge. The hotel does charge a small surcharge for credit card use which I didn't expect as everybody pays for their rooms by credit card.

Room Tip: Didn't use the swimming pool or spa so can't rate them.

Dear Steven M,

Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay with us. We were delighted to read all of the great comments you made, especially the spotlessly clean spacious rooms, superb staff, and that you ended up enjoying our valet carparking service for the small daily fee ($12 per day). Thanks again and hopefully we can host you again some time.

Kind regards. Greg

This hotel is a great base for a brief stay in Dunedin. It is very central, close to all amenities including Cadburys World and Speights Brewery.It is also very close to plenty of restaurants.

The room was huge, and the bed comfortable. The tv was very large too. The bathroom was good.

You get what you pay for with this hotel and i'd definately stay again.

I startyed here with my family and friends very recently. We had 4 rooms between us and each one of the rooms were huge. What a nice surprise to find rooms that actually fit all your luggage and extra visitors. Couldn't fault the staff, everyone we met were happy to help and seemed to really want to be at work. They loved their jobs

Room Tip: We had the 6 and 7th floor rooms. They were large and the corner rooms triple the size

We stayed here in August for a conference and were impressed with the decor and the service. The rooms at the top with a balcony and great view are huge, with lots of room to spread out for my daughter who was doing her homework all over the floor. The furnishing is modern and luxurious. The staff were acomodating and nice and very quick to fetch our car every time we went out, which was often. Great location. Comfy comfy beds and pillows. The breakfast buffet is ok and I liked the option of purchasing just the hot foods half since I don't eat all the carbs in the pastries and breads. That was nice.

Stayed on business for a week, extremely comfortable bed, quite noisy due to proximity of the lift . Room service excellent with very good food quality. Well situated for access to all the amenities and attractions of the CBD and easy access to all the major roads out of town.

Room Tip: Worth the extra corridor walk for a room at the farthest point from the lift. Minimum noise.
