                • We liked the location and good value for money. Luxury style accomodation at more than reasonable rate, friendly staff and manager on duty, Mike, was very helpful. The bed was great and breakfast was superb. Our only choice became our best choice and facilities were excellent.

                  Tragic old world hotel and unfortunately some street noise from people heading home at 4 am being on 6 the floor.

                • Excellent location and valet parking, the personal products in the bathroom the central positon of the hotel in the middle of Dunedin. Service is generally pretty good, cable internet is available in the rooms for a fee and cooked continental breakfast combo is great value.

                  The toilet was situated in a most inconvenient place and the paper holder almost impossible to use, the bed was well past its use by date and was very uncomfortable.

                • Easy location in the cbd, several good restaurants nearby and usually, from experience, parking for hotel guests is free. The staff is most helpful and wine list Beautiful room. Gym was great as well is on top floor.

                  Charge for parking as were not made aware this was an added cost and the bathroom was really tiny.

                • Great location for Dunedin and convenient to town. The hotel service was fine and staff were friendly. The bed was very comfortable and mattress were amazing.

                  Our previous stay was better, the window was not sealed and let cold air in, toilets did not flush very well. Food outlets generally were rather disappointing.
