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.
Amazing Location across the road from the beach ”
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.
Great hotel overlooking the sea. A little out of town, however we had a car. Hotel reception staff were great. Bathroom could have been bigger, very compact. Microwave, fridge and crockery available.
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.
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”
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.
Great location, Quality Room, a Hidden Gem”
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, after touring round the South Island. We found a hidden gem! The room overlooked the ocean, so the view was lovely. The standard of the room is very high, with quality fixtures eg Room size, Bed size & comfort, Cleanliness ETC Wifi connection very efficient. We definately would recommend anyone stay at this outstanding hotel. August 2014
Great hotel by the sea. ”
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.
Great hotel with a fantastic location”
Awesome hotel right at the beach. V quiet at night. Staff was very pleasant and helpful and they offer you free use of the salt swimming pool right next to the beach. Beds were very comy. Great cafe just next door
Comfortable stay after 5 hour drive”
OK stay, not many choice for dinner around but close to the beach. Just a couple minute walk to the second beach and you can have a chance to see some penguins and seals. Friendly staff. Room was pretty standard but very clean. Book ocean view room, other wise you could get bored pretty fast.
Beautiful meal in the restaurant top class”
very enjoyable stay, loved the ocean views. Comfortabel bed , loved having a couch in our room to sit and look at the ocean view. bathroom was quite small, but had lovely shampoo, conditioner and body wash. parking great.
disappointed that there is no kitchen facilities ”
i booked this hotel because the room has "kitchenette" However, there is no gas stove, but only a microwave with water tap! very disappointed. kettle is dirty. can't be used. room is very clean i met their staff. one is very friendly and helpful. the other is not
initially it was a little hard to locate the entrance to the hotel as it is on a one-way street and gps's are not infallible. once there, the studio was brilliant with a wonderful view and extremely well located. it has an underground carpark with lift.
Lovely location, food and staff.”
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.
Brilliantly located seaside apartments”
we stayed for one night to celebrate a birthday. check in was friendly and efficient. the room was new and clean. great views. not huge but adequate. the tv didnt swivel. so you couldnt watch it from bed. weird! we checked out and i left my bag at reception and drove off. the manager was wonderful and sent it to me by courier. nice people and great service. neat beachfront location. stay there.
Great place to stay - Good Location on beach front”
Ask to be put in a spacious room. I have stayed at St Clair Beach a couple of times and will stay there again, however make sure you are not put in the wheelchair access room as it is small and hospital like,unless of course you are in a wheelchair. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Sophisticated apartment by the beach”
Very clean, very modern and well-furnished apartment with gorgeous beach views. Wished we could have stayed for longer!
