Positive Reviews

Unbeatable location

The oceanfront location and all-round spectacular view are one of the main highlights for travellers when it comes to staying at this hotel. The Esplanade is right across the road, and the sound of the waves and seagulls overhead is why guests love that they are not in the middle of the city centre. Those who want to get into Dunedin's city say it's just a short drive from the hotel anyway.

Excellent eateries around

The hotel is within walking distance to many pubs, cosy cafes and a host of excellent restaurants. Guests point out the Esplanade Restaurant in particular, and say it's fun for the whole family, but most of all the food is way above average. The hotel's restaurant is also highly rated, especially the breakfast spread. Guests are satisfied for a large part of the day when they start off at Pier 24.

Classy and comfortable

The rooms are spacious with a warm and cosy vibe. Most guests love that they can sit back and relax on the designer sofas with amazing ocean views from the comfort of the room. Others prefer to soak up the ocean breeze from the balconies. They also point out the incredibly comfortable beds, and find it's easy to get a great night's sleep here.
