“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stayed one night in August; our last night in Dunedin before flying back to the U.S. The hotel is tucked above George Street, up a somewhat steep (but short) driveway/parking lot. The couple who runs the hotel (and staffs the reception desk) are incredibly friendly and welcoming. Our room was wonderful -- expertly furnished and appointed, and above all else, quiet at night. The only thing missing from this hotel is a restaurant, but there are plenty of nice restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk on George Street toward the Octagon.

Room Tip: There is no hotel restaurant, so if you're arriving after a long trip, plan to dine on nearby Ge...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

My husband and I recently stayed in a studio apartment but were rather disappointed that the advertised kitchen didn't have a frypan or any other cooking facilities. The room was really just a motel room with a microwave and very small . Our advertised view was supposed to be a view of the harbour but was a very small "slice of a view" . Bluestone was well positioned for restaurants.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and check this upon arrival

This hotel is fabulous. Located only a 15 minute stroll from the Octagon town centre it has everything you need. The room was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom with a huge spa bath. Everything was polished to shine and looked brand new. The kitchenette facilities had plenty of everything. The bed was ultra comfortable and the sitting area with the large flat screen TV was lovely. We had a small balcony with great views and it was nice to be able to open the doors and bring in fresh air. The hotel staff were delightful to deal with and went that little bit extra. We would definitely stay again.

Bluestone is only a short walk away from good cafes. There's ample parking but most spots are on a slope so take care walking up when it's a wet day. The room we were in had a kitchenette, spa bath and good sized queen bed. Comfortable, clean and conveniently located. There is a laptop in the reception area with free internet access which was very handy. The family sitting area here is cosy. And if you're lucky you will catch a glimpse of the rabbits in their garden cage or maybe even pat Honey the cat. Will stay here again next time.

Bluestone really surprised us with the luxurious level of fitout. Really comfortable rooms with a wonderful big bathtub in the ensuite. Washer and dryer included in the little kitchenette. TV included all the Sky channels which was good for a relaxing night in. Lovely views from the French doors which opened onto the little balcony. This place is first class. Great friendly service. A not too taxing walk into town (Octagon) takes about 10-15 minutes. Plenty of eating options around. Would stay here again in a shot and highly recommend. Great value. Even has a wee gym although limited equipment.

Room Tip: There is a book in reception with dining reviews by other guests which is a nice touch I thought. Sh...

Exceptionally appointed, aesthetically pleasing executive apartments!

Faultless!

Beautifully positioned guest lounges, with northerly and eastern views.

Exceptional staff! Extraordinary service!

Close to the university and great eateries including "the good earth cafe" and "the lone star" as well as fabulous florist "Joseph Jones" who also offers quality gifts and top notch gift wrapping.

We will be back!
