                Very good quality of room, hotel, and service including parking service.

              • Couple
                9.2

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

                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.

                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.

              • Couple
                10.0

                We couldnt fault the excellent service from the reception to the valet service and the restuarant staff, nothing was a problem

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The beds were so comfortable with super pillows!Clean tidy and well equipt. Great location as close to town were we needed to be.

                The lifts are very small, but ok if only a few people are in them.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The bed was so comfortable and the breakfast buffet had lots of choice.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                Departure time...

                On arrival, we were 'upgraded' to a 'suite...' which had not been renovated in ages , 2 old TVs ,and badly located. We were insulted.. refused the upgrade, and insisted to have the room that we booked. They obliged but we did not like the new location of their 'quiet' rooms either - overlooking roofs with A/C systems etc..

              • Single
                10.0

                Great room, easy step through booking process and positive staff attitude.Good bquality toiletries

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                The overall experience was fantastic. The hotel staff were very helpful and the room meet and exceeded all our expectations.

              • Single
                10.0

                central town position

                wall could do with a bit more sound-proofing

              • Family with children
                6.6

                parking, cafeteria, restaurant open till late

                rooms need better maintenance or complete refurbishment (e.g. windows, bath room)

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                It was OK but a little pricey compared to American Hotels. We felt it was overrated.

                The toilet was a little close to the wall
