“Very nice”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

We had an extended stay at Bluestone recently, and thoroughly enjoyed my time. The room was spacious, and all the furnishings and appliances were extremely modern. Each room had a kitchenette, which included a microwave, kettle, and toaster. It was fully equipped with cutlery, dinnerware, and even cooking utensils.

My wife rates this one of the top motels in New Zealand and who am I to argue. Modern, with good quality furnishings and an enormous spa bath. Well situated between the town and the Botanic Gardens - plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance. Free internet access from a desktop in the lobby. Friendly and helpful management. Note: Management say it is unsuitable for childen.

Having enjoyed it so much three years ago, we had no hesitation in booking Bluestone again. The location is great, about a ten minute walk to city centre and very close to the must see Otago Museum. The rooms are perfectly designed and very contemporary. Loved the robes in the drawers. The washer dryer is a great bonus too. Don't bother looking elsewhere, stay here.

We have stayed at a number of locations in George Street but this is by far the best we have found. There can be a real noise issue with some of the accommodation due to road proximity or night-time revellers on the street, but Bluestone is set well back from the road and we found it very quiet. I can't find anything to fault with our stay, and highly recommend Bluestone.

Room Tip: Relaxing in a Spa rooom is great after a day in town.

We stayed here for two nights in a studio room. The room was very well appointed and spacious. Unfortunately we had bad weather so could not make use of the great outdoor area. Motel is within walking distance of the main shopping and eating areas of Dunedin. Great place to stay!

We spent just one night here. The rooms are absolutely lovely and with the outside balcony, have a kind of tree house feeling. Very light and airy. Good location for walking to restaurants.

Modern, clean, light and great location. Wireless internet was not free, but there was a laptop that could be used for free and the whole Octagon is wireless.

Room Tip: If you would like to cook, take a room with a kitchen, not a kitchenette. Apparently that means Micr...
