Our premier studio apartment was located on level 3 and had great views over Dunedin from our small balcony. The room was very large, with a small kitchen area, a large bedroom with a very comfortable queen size bed and a 2 seater lounge and coffee table plus desk and chair. Also a flat screen TV. The apartment was spotlessly clean and we could not fault it in any way. The bathroom had a spa with shower over the spa.
Check in was quick by very friendly staff who showed us around. The building is 4 years old but looks about 1 year old, very well kept and bright and very comfortable. It's a 5 minute walk into the main shopping area and you can walk everywhere quite comfortably. It's a little difficult to find as it's up a long steep drive and a bit hidden from view.
The only complaint I have is the washing machine/drier combination. It takes hours to do a load and dry it, also it's extremely hard on your clothes, so if you don't need to wash don't.

We had a premier studio elite room. It was a large, well furnished room with a huge comfortable king bed, a settee with a footstool in front of it, a small balcony, a desk and chair, a wardrobe, a kitchen area and a bathroom with a huge jetted bath in it. The towels were thick and luxurious. There was a washer/dryer in the room in the kitchen area. The crockery was white porcelain. Wifi didn't cost very much. Everything was spotless. they have a free parking area to the front of the hotel. it took around 15 minutes to walk into town, so the location is very good. They have a 24 hour store a couple of blocks away. The room was higher up and it had a lovely view across Dunedin to the hills beyond.

If you want a GREAT hotel that is clean, comfortable, great owners,large rooms, kitchen, free internet, free DVD's and wonderful room views and close to the city............ Then this is the place for you. We travelled over New Zealand (both Islands) for 4 weeks and stayed in Hotels every stop, and I thought that we had stayed in Hotels marked 10/10... well Bluestone on George was an 11/10. No complaints. From the time you check in with reception the stay is delightful.They even have free off street parking, which is great for a Hotel in the City.

My husband and I stayed at the Bluestone on George for 4 nights of our New Zealand vacation. It was such an excellent hotel (in a truly gorgeous region) that we were sad when we had to leave! It was very modern and our room was huge! It was also very clean (looked like we were the first guests to stay there, even though the hotel is 3 years old!), quiet, comfortable, AND located close to the Octagon. AND - all that for a reasonable cost!

There were a few little perks that made it that much more comfortable: the computer with free internet in the lobby/lounge area was a nice relief (we had just traveled from Sydney and internet was $20/day!) and the restaurant journal, where guests were encouraged to note their experiences at local restaurants... a nice reference for people who had never been to Dunedin.

I will highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again upon future travels to Dunedin.

Received room upgrade upon arrival which was lovely for our first wedding anniversary. Chic and well decorated and furnished. Lovely double spa bath. Great location for city sightseeing with a car park for guests who hire a car. Very nice and friendly couple on reception.

Classed as "boutique motel" accommodation, we found this a far cry from anything yet experienced in Australian motels ! The emphasis is definitely on the "boutique", and on spotless presentation, friendly service, stylish comfort.
Due to the winter season of our visit we decided to pay a bit extra for ensured warmth, and Bluestone on George was worth every cent. Under-floor bathroom heating is a definite winner in our book. Location is close enough for an easy stroll to The Octagon and the numerous eateries from which one has to choose.
