Quest Dunedin
Ranked #48 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Reviewed 15 March 2009

Quest is right in the centre of Dunedin and near to all the amenities. The accomodation is very modern and well equipped. It is not like staying in a large hotel but more like renting an apartment in a small block. It was excellent value for the price.

The location is fairly central, next to a supermarket, but also next to a very busy, noisy road. If you stay here ask for a room at the back away from the main road. Accommodation is very clean, modern and comfortable, but not large. The laundry facilities in the bathfoom are very useful.

Hello Manth10. Thank you for your review and feedback following your stay with us here at Quest Dunedin. We are sorry that your stay wasn't as pleasant as you would have liked but I am very hopeful that you enquired as to whether another apartment was available if you found it too noisy - we are only too happy to accommodate guest complaints if they raise it with us at the time of their stay. As can only be expected when a property is situated in the very heart of the CBD of a substantial-sized city, noise pollution is sometimes going to be a factor. That said, the entire frontage and Southern side of our building is equipped with commercial 'Hush' glass and this normally reduces any noise 'pollution' to acceptable levels - unless a window is not correctly sealed. Our location is, arguably, second to none in Dunedin, situated within 100 metres of the two largest supermarkets in Dunedin and within 3 minutes walk of the Octagon and numerous cafes, restaurants and bars. Unfortunately this blue-chip location cannot always provide amazing vistas but I guess you can't have it all! Thanks again for your feedback Manth10, we're always delighted to receive a guest's comments.

I stayed one night, and it was great. Across the road from the Chocolate factory - a bonus. The staff were helpful and friendly, the breakfast pack was simple but great value. The room was big without being huge; it was clean and comfortable. This was good value for money - I'd stay here again.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. Well located as only a short walk to the "Octagon" area, which is great for breakfast and lunch. Also very close for the Tairei Gorge Rail Trip.
The units are very clean and tidy, comfortable beds. Free use of Laundry facilities. Staff very helpful. Would certainly recommend.

I stayed one night @ Quest. The location is hard to beat. Near the octagon and the cathedral, and opposite is the Cadzbury choc factory. Next to it is a big supermarket where you can get all the supplies you need. We booked a studio and it was clean, ok size, with cutlery complete enough to cook simple meals and breakfast. Parking is 15 nzd per night @ the hotel. Self-service laundry is available.

Hm.. I just don't feel it in Dunedin, I'd rather stay in Otago Peninsula the next time I visit and embrace the french atmosphere. The scenery is much lovelier and there're more things to see or do. The tour to the choc factory is so-so for me, although it would be a good activity for the kids.

Hi tahudantempe, thank you for your kind review and recommendation. I just wanted to correct the car-parking charge that you quoted, the daily charge is $12.50 per night rather than the $15 you noted. The car-park charge exists because of the limited numbers we have available and, as you know, it is secure, undercover, extremely well-loctaed within Dunedin's CBD and has internal access to our property. Thanks again for your review, we look forward to seeing you return to Quest Dunedin in the near future.
