Positive Reviews

Convenient location with free parking

With a position that is relatively close to Dunedin city centre, guests find the hotel's location to be an advantage of staying. This opinion is helped by the property being next to the Dunedin Botanic Garden, while the inclusion of free on-site parking makes it easy to get around for those with their own car.

Friendly and welcoming staff

Travellers are positive when it comes to the hotel's customer-service standards. Words like 'accommodating' and 'friendly' are typically used to refer to the service provided by the staff members of this property.

Enjoyable on-site restaurant

The hotel's on-site restaurant generates positive reviews from guests. Along with a nice ambience, the restaurant is described as providing enjoyable food for both breakfast and dinner.

Negative Reviews

Missing out on air conditioning

Visitors are critical about the rooms missing out on air conditioning. While fans can be obtained upon request, the rooms can apparently get overly stuffy and hot during warmer months.

No lifts available

One negative brought up about the hotel is the omission of lifts. While ground floor rooms are available, the lack of a lift is somewhat troublesome for guests staying on the second floor, particularly when travellers have heavy luggage and/or suffer from mobility issues.

Noise a possible concern

Visitors note that one potential problem about staying at the hotel is noise. The soundproofing of the rooms is deemed inadequate, and this is especially a concern for those that are facing the road, with the noise of passing traffic reportedly being quite noticeable.
