Stayed at the Bluestone on George on 5th and 6th May and was very impressed with its style, cleanliness and overall chic presentation. Albeit it is still new ( opened in 2007) the effort put into the presentation by its owners shows. The room while not overly large was definitely adequate for our needs. The bathroom was well thought out and the Spa bath ( even though not used) gave a very good area for the shower. Just as well thought out was the kitchenette with its very well appointed utensils and its ingenious washer/dryer combo - we used this with no problems ( although the unit can get a little noisy in operation). The owners instructions for the room were clear and perhaps a little over explicit regarding the need not to cook/prepare any odour causing foods ( eg. fish) but I can see why they did this because, as they rightly point out, such odours can spoil the stay of guests that use the room later. Therefore, no quibbles on this point as the room we had was pristine. The property is one of quality and a credit to the owners desire to present a different hotel experience. Our stay was excellent and definitely value for money. Dunedin is arguably the pick of the South Island cities. It is very much alive largely due to the University students that are everywhere. This means there are lots of good value for money places to eat. The similarity also to Edinburgh, Scotland is remarkable.
P.S.( I was first in Dunedin in 2002 and had a great seafood meal at THE REEF restaurant - cannot say the same in 2008 - definitely not recommended!)
