“Fantastic - warm and friendly welcome, great room.”
Reviewed 30 August 2009

Sandra was very friendly when we checked in with helpful advice about local attractions. The room was opulent and beautifully decorated with a very comfortable bed, nice spa and an expansive view of Dunedin city from our top floor balcony. We enjoyed evening drinks in the guest lounge with plenty of interesting magazines to look through. Also we were able to check on our emails with the complimentary use of a laptop computer located adjacent to the reception. Did not notice any significant noise from George St either.

My wife loved the five star fittings and furnishings. I thought one of the best features, especially if you are on the top floor as we were, was one of the coolest hi-tech lifts I have ever seen. As I was the one lugging our suitcases around on this trip, this made my life a lot easier.

Spoke to Neville on checkout and he was very gracious as we heaped praise on their establishment. Would loved to have stayed more than the 1 night.

Deservedly lives up to the top marks acheived on Tripadvisor.

We booked the Bluestone on the basis on TripAdvisor reviews, and we certainly were not disappointed. I was a little worried by a George Street location, as it can be busy, but the property is situated well back from the road and does not suffer from road noise.

We were checked in by one of the owners, who was very friendly and efficient, and shown the comfortable guest lounge facility and then on to our room. The room was reasonably spacious, tastefully decorated, and well equipped with items like a CD/DVD player. The bathroom was very nice, with heated floor and a fantastic bath (although the over-bath shower was a little awkward). The in-room internet system was a little bizarre, but once set up it worked fine - this would be one area to improve upon to impress business travellers.

Overall this is a well designed, well maintained and comfortable place to stay. Although probably most suited to business travellers, I would recommend the Bluestone to anyone looking for a comfortable stay and excellent value in Dunedin.

My sister and I travelled down to Dunedin for the mid winter carnaval and shopping and was a little worried when we travelled down George Street but once we started up the drive way we realised we'd made a great choice!
Reception staff were welcoming + very helpful, providing maps + advice.
Modern but not garish, comfortable and clearly newly decorated to a high standard. Bedroom in cool greens, comfy large bed, even the feather filled pillows were monogrammed!
Bathroom contained a Spa bath, power shower + lovely cosmetics with underfloor heating.
Kitchen was well equiped and modern, complete with washing machine, iron + ironing board.
Tv + dvd/stereo system was top quality, with a wide selection of dvds available to borrow from reception.
All in all a lovely trip completed by a lovely hotel. Well worth a visit.

One of the very best places I've been to any where in the world. Beautiful place . Could not fault it in any way except that the view of the backs of houses in a bit drab. The things that matter-cleanliness, comfort, quality, room size, bathroom --superb

The reviews on here were so good my partner and I decided to splurge and stay here while in Dunedin. We're so glad we did. The spa was great and the heated bathroom floor and towel rail perfect for the chilly evening. Hope we can come back to Bluestone on George and Dunedin as we just didn't get enough time at either.

We chose this accommodation solely on the strength of the tripadvisor reviews and we were completely satisfied. The rooms are still in "as new" condition and kept that way by meticulous service staff. Free internet in the lobby, free gymnasium, free in-room laundry and free parking at the front door. And it's just a just a short walk to the restaurants, cafes and many of the tourist sites in Dunedin. The staff are friendly, courteous and helpful. An excellent establishment.
