              The fact the hotel charges $20 a night for Valet Parking is main downside; can park in streets around but have to be lucky to find unrestricted parking after 0800; also there was no clock in our room.

              Just what an excellent boutique hotel should be. The transformation of what used to be the General Post Office into a boutique hotel has been thoughtfully and tastefully accomplished . The valet parking on arrival and departure was appreciated . The modern , comfortable studio room, spacious bathroom with washing machine and dryer is just what is needed after a busy day sightseeing. In a convenient location the hotel is minutes away on foot from , the Railway Station, Otago Museum and Public Art Gallery . Perfect.

              Amazing, super comfortable hotel”

              This hotel was perfect. The room and common areas were new, luxurious and spotlessly clean. We stayed here twice on our recent trip. The first stay, we had a family suite which was like a usual hotel room plus an extra, seperate bedroom with two single beds. The decor was lovely, the carpets were plush, the curtains were heavy and blocked the light, the beds were very comfortable with crisp, quality linen and plush pillows and doonas. Both rooms had a TV, and the storage was ample and thoughtful - enough dedicated space for 4 suitcases, plenty of hanging space and space on the bathroom vanity for toilet bags. Bathroom was spotless and included more little amenities than usual, shower pressure good. To our delight there was also a new, quiet washer and dryer tucked away in the cupboard. The second stay we had a 2 bedroom suite which was even better. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Good location, friendly staff. Skip the restaurant, we both had food poisoning after eating there.

              This hotel scores a Distinction!!”

              When I read on their website that each hotel room is equipped with a washer and dryer..I was skeptical..but boy was I surprised! On top of the luxuriously furnished room and super comfy bed..tucked away in a corner of the bathroom was a stacked washer/dryer. The convenience of this facility just blew us away as we were able to get our laundry done whenever needed. The cleanliness of the hotel and the parking/valet was also a great amenity....5 stars all around no less!!!

              My wife and I had a lovely 24hr break at short notice. The Executive Suite was well appointed and a generous size. the staff were friendly and the location was good - and nowhere is especially far in downtown Dunedin. One minor gripe was that on checking out we were charged for overnight vehicle parking which was not communicated to us when we checked in.
