  • Family with children
    10.0

    The staff were polite, friendly and welcoming as well as informative. The room was very comfortable with an excellent selection of bathroom products. The room service menu was excellent and well priced - good and speedy service too. As people that have travelled extensively we are happy to say that this is definitely one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Would come back again or stay at another scenic hotel in the future.

  • Older travelers

    The comfort of the bed

    Why do all hotels have limited real coffee and real sugar I hate decaff & never use artificial sweetener. Low Fat milk should now be standard. The toilet was situated in a most inconvenient place and the paper holder almost impossible to use, Would have liked a bath.

    It was very central, clean and modern. Had car parking available too!

  • Single
    8.8

    I arrived into Dunedin to attend the GP conference at 9am on Friday morning. I understood I could not get into my room until later but it was not available until 3pm. I think this was too late and unreasonable.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The bed was great. Loved the pillows and the underlay. Size of room, excellent, particularly liked having a table and chairs.

    The pressure of the shower could have been better. Vanity unit too small.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Location to city centre, friendly staff and facilities and room of very good standard.
