Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

Having chosen Bluestone on George on the strength of the numerous adulatory reviews, our expectations were high - and well met. It is hard to fault this excellent motel. It is well placed with a short walk into town, well appointed with everything that one needs and very well maintained so that it appears almost new. The owners are friendly, helpful and work very hard at keeping the place immaculate. It should be a template for others to follow.

My husband and I stayed at Bluestone on George for 2 nights while visiting Dunedin from the Far North so were not quite sure what to expect way down south. What a lovely experience it turned out to be. The motel is modern, spotless, convenient to the city and with excellent hosts. Our room had every thing we could wish for including a washing machine so we could wash my husband's dirty tramping gear after he had walked the Kepler track. If we return to Dunedin, we will have not hesitation in staying here again.

This is the second time that we have stayed at Bluestone on George. The apartments are faultless...clean, very well equipped and very comfortable. With the sun shining in the morning, it is very pleasant sitting out on the terrace reading the paper provided, there is also a lovely client lounge where you can enjoy a drink in the afternoon. Hotel owners are very helpful, this is a great place to stay in Dunedin.

We stayed here for 2 nights while touring New Zealand. The on site owners were friendly and helpful, and the place is like new, and very well maintained, clean and bright. The kitchens are well equipped and all utensils seemed new. It was ideally located for walking to the shops and restaurants.

We stayed at Bluestone on George for our latest South Island touring holiday.
Rooms are superb, very well appointed and seem to be like new.
We prefer to cater our breakfasts ourselves and the kitchenette facilities made this so easy.
Location was great for us as we like walking. We ate at Speight's Ale House and after a big meal were able to walk back in 25 minutes and then have a spa batch before retiring for a super sleep.
Another walk we took was through the University nearby, into the Botanic Gardens and then after exporing a lot of local streets we found ourselves at the top of Baldwin Street (the steepest street in the world) From there we took a city bus on a bit of an impromptu tour of Dunedin.
Free parking was provided and on leaving it was an easy drive to exit the city.

Room Tip: Top floor gives a great view.

This little boutique hotel is seven years old but seems brand new. It is perfectly located to visit the university or the CBD. I found the owners ( on site) to be very helpful and friendly. The little kitchen is very nice with a microwave, fridge and all the plates, silver etc and all this looked very new, no chips in the ceramic. There is no hob though if you are really planning extensive cooking. There is an amazing whirlpool and an in-room washer/dryer which is a rarity. The bed was good and there was a lift up to the third floor. There was only two small negatives. The climb up from the street to the entrance is a bit steep if you aren't in good shape, but isn't too long and is less if you are driving and parking in the off road parking lot. There was some student partying both nights we were there, which mercifully stopped at 11:30 pm. Didn't bother us, but might bother you if you are really sensitive to noise. This is why I recommend a room near the office end of the hotel. I can't comment on the value because someone else got the bill.

Room Tip: I'd attempt to stay on the end near the office as it seemed quieter and further away from partyi...

This hotel is well maintained, clean and in a very convenient location (an easy walk to the downtown area and to the university, within two blocks of numerous good restaurants). The views from the third floor were very nice and the spa bath/shower was a nice bonus. Absolutely no negatives to the Bluestone and a visit to Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula is well worth a few days during your NZ stay.
