                Pleasant, Great View”

                Highly recommended only if you rent a car as it's pretty far from the city center. But if Beach (and Vitamin SEA) and tranquility is what you're looking for this is the place. SUPER comfortable bed with heated pad guaranteed a very good sleep. Balcony with sea view is amazing, made some good time lapse of the waves.

                This is our second stay and we love it for the location by the beach and short stroll to trendy cafes and bars. Perfect to come back from a day of sight seeing and sit on the balcony and admire the sea view.

                Nice trip to Dunedin”

                While St. Clair is a bit outside of Dunedin, it has everything a vacation family needs. It has the full kitchen with a living area and a separate bed for our daughter. Everything is upscale and the bed is very comfortable. The only pity is that the restaurant had a private function and hope we will try it next time.

                Room with an awesome view!”

                We stayed at The Hotel St Clair for our last might in New Zealand and were not disappointed. It is directly across from a surfing beach so it was wonderful to watch all the surfers, paddle boarders and young children in the water. We went to sleep with the sound of waves crashing! We had been on a tour before this so we had no car. We took a public bus from the center of Dunnedin and were within an easy walk to the hotel.

                By the sea, comfortable bed, spacious room

                It was disappointing after booking many months in advance to have a view of houses unless we were on the deck. I'm wondering if all rooms booked through the likes of Agoda are for rooms without a view? I did inquire was it possible to have a better view but got the distinct impression that we were a budget room therefore no such option. The room was well appointed, clean & spacious but the lack of sea view was disappointing given the advertising that enticed us to be that far from the city.

                Sea view booking not exactly what we expected”

                clean, good staff, acceptable location

                we stayed at St Clair for 2 nights and booked the sea view room. When we checked in, we discovered that our room had only a slanted view of the sea. If we had known that this was the view, we would have opted for the hill facing view which would have been cheaper as we did not use the view during our stay. However, the staff was good enough to offer us a complimentary continental breakfast which was the saving grace although it was nothing fantastic.

                We had a wonderful stay at St Clair. Only 10 mins drive from a busy Dunedin- market day etc. Had a sea view beautiful room. Sat and watched the surfers while sipping a glass of rose wine. Booked a table for dinner that night. Fabulous meal. If back in that part of New Zealand would stay there again. Next morning went to the Penguin Place on the peninsula. So worth the drive.

                Only a ten minute drive to the city, very relaxing surroundings and a few good restaurants near by.

                We spent three nights here and did a lot of the nature activities on the Otago peninsula. It was a great place from which you could explore the local area and only a short drive to the city centre. Have stayed in Dunedin several times and would always recommend this hotel.

                the hotel is right on the esplanade overlooking a quiet beach; seaview rooms have an unobstructed view of the ocean. in-house restaurant has fantastic food (can be ordered for room service). also has several cafes in walking distance (<500m). not a huge hotel and therefore the staff were very attentive and provided a high standard of service. the rooms are also nice and quiet, with new fittings/maintained to a high standard, and are lovely and clean. unfortunately the rooms are slightly on the small-size, but are definitely adequate and more than comfortable. very relaxing environment. cons: not walking distance to the cbd.
