“Such comfort!”
Reviewed 19 March 2013

This is a great self contained apartment. So well equipped , with everything you could want in a very clean and modern apartment. Good outdoor seating and indoor tv area. An easy walk along into the centre and also to the University. When in Dunedin do not miss walking to the Station and climbing up the steepest street in the world!!! Amazing. The Best Cafe is great for fish teas, and feels right out of the 1950's

Sgjsn has it just about perfectly right. I think the walk into town is a bit more than 15 mins, though. It was also perfectly sited for the new Forsyth Barr stadium, which worked well as it happened. The place itself is very modern and clean, and the beds are good. The Internet is free for 200MB but very cheap for a major upgrade which is available for the duration of your stay, so I thought that not too bad. Sky TV all included, even with some movies. Recommended.

Room Tip: We were in 301, which worked very well, and right next to the lift - which wasn't a problem.

Not much to add to the other reviews. We based our booking on the Tripadvisor feedback, and were not disappointed. Modern, clean and well-equipped (even a Fitness room was available). Once you negotiate the rather steep carpark, everything is perfect for a short stay. It is about 15 mins walk to the centre of Dunedin. The immediate surroundings are near the University, and so the shops/bars/restaurants are a little downmarket - but not sleazy. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Well situated. New and very clean and comfortable. Small kitchenette with microwave, stove and washing machine a great addition. Friendly reception/owner. Parking on site. Limited free internet. Only downside was that the bathroom was small and cramped, with much of the space being taken up by a large spa-bath. The bathroom would have been better with a walk in shower or standard bath/shower arrangement. Recommended.

This was the best accommodation we have had on our 5 week stay in NZ so far. The room was immacculate. The location is very good. The kitchenette is very well equipped and the washing machine is a huge plus on a long trip. The decor was very nice and relaxing.
We recommend this hotel without any concerns.

I stay at Bluestone for work and is my place of choice for Dunedin. The service and amenities are fantastic. Everything has been thought of and well presented. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The beds are so comfortable it makes it hard to get out of bed in the morning!!

We spent 5 nights at the Bluestone on George and very highly recommend it.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean, the rooms extremely well equipped and comfortable and the service first class.

Excellent!
