This hotel is clean with the usual amenities. Rooms are nice & clean, updated bathroom. My review is to give kudos to Glenn Muir, one of Front Desk Staff. Glenn went beyond, in assisting me to check in on line for my flight. The computer system just didn't like the data I input. Glenn came through and had me email...

Excellent service, lovely restaurant and room service is great. Room is an excellent size and well appointed. Valet parking was great but hard to find a place to park to let them know your there! No air conditioning and one lift wasn't working but really great and helpful staff.

I only stayed one night but it is really hard to find anything to fault at this hotel. The room was spacious and very well fitted out. The bed was super comfortable and I slept like a log. A spotless bathroom with a great range of toiletries. I ordered room service breakfast, which I rarely do. It was a very...

Check in was apauling for Valet parking , double charged on room , hotel did give free valet parking to make up for it .When I got home found that they had charged me on my credit card for room instead of reading instructions and charged back the room to the Travel Agent.

This hotel is located in the centre of Dunedin near the Octagon on Princes Street. The room was well appointed with very comfortable mattress topper. The room had a fridge, ironing board, iron and safe. The hair dryer was good. The toiletries were particularly good and they supply you with a little bag to take them away with you. I...

I stayed for work. I found the staff to be lovely, friendly and very helpful. The room was immaculate and clean, with very comfortable beds. I had a mixture of room service and dine in, the food available was delicious. The dining room is fine for breakfast but lacks in ambience for dinner dining.

We passed through Dunedin, and were sadly only there for one night. Hotel is centrally located, and decorated in a contemporary style. Nice large room. Very comfy bed. Friendly staff. Parking is a bit of a fag - we parked on a meter which is free from 6pm till 9am, then paid $6 to stay there till midday. Cheaper than...

I stay here once a year for a few days and always appreciate the best quality comfortable beds, and high quality linen that greatly helps catch up on lost sleep when you travel heaps. The restaurant food was also of consistent high quality and value for money.

Room was extremely hot during the day with no air conditioning. We were told this was an old warehouse at one time. The rooms were very big and the hotel was very nice except for the heat. Fans were available if you called the front desk. By night it cooled down. There are washers and dryers on the 2nd and...

Thanks for taking the time to write your review and I am sorry that you found our hotel average at best. The hotel used to be an office block but was converted in 2004 to become a hotel. Sometimes conversions lead to compromises but in our case it has meant that our rooms are now an above average size -...
