Wish we had stayed at backpacker”
We arrived later than the time we mentioned to them. Rang the bell for a couple minutes and no one opened the door. I then walked to the nearest service station to borrow a phone to ring the owner. I was given a code to let myself in. When I went back to the house, someone who was supposed to be the duty manager opened the door. He looked confused with the booking. I was so close to cancel the booking on the spot but thought to give them a second chance. No warm welcoming. The duty manager was on the phone with the owner discussing the booking. At the end we were showed the room upstairs. When we made the booking we were attracted to the add and the photo of Victorian style house. Yes the house was Victorian, but our bedroom made backpacker looked luxurious. The owner definitely did not understand how to run bed and breakfast. People expect warm hospitality from bed and breakfast. If you run backpacker, then mention it in your add. Got charged NZ90 at the end. We wished we had stayed in real backpacker instead.

Beautiful house with limited facilities and far from City Centre”
The house is extremely beautiful but quite far from the City Centre. It may be suitable for those who would like to spend a lot of time on St Clair Beach. It is near the bus stop so you can catch the bus to the City Centre. It takes around 15 minutes to the City Centre. The room is quite small and there is only bed and an arm chair (attic room). The bathroom and toilets are downstairs so that it is a bit inconvenient. The price of 55 NZD per night is a bit expensive given the location and facilities.

The hostess, the food and its location
As a visitor to Dunedin for the Neil Diamond show at the stadium we really appreciated the help given to us with directions, suggestions about where to park the car and where to eat. We found the room was spotless with plenty of reading material - in fact anything we needed, it was there. Finally the owner was a delightful personality who cooked a delicious breakfast which set us up for the day.

Nice stay under difficult circumstances”
Historical B&B, Antiques everywhere, Beautifully decorated
The house is Victorian, beautifully decorated, and very historic, including noisy original upstairs flooring, the main thing we didn't like. Our stay was short, one night, and unfortunately we had to pay for two nights when we only used one due to the reservation agency Agoda having unclear web feedback. I attempted to get a second night and believed I was unsuccessful because their website said I had to wait for 24 hours to see if the room was available to verify that the request could be completed. They created a second reservation by using our credit card number in their records and I didn't see that email. Other agencies such as booking.com and TINGO have real-time feedback and keep a listing of reservations and cancellations for you so there's no confusion. The owner was not notified we were to be there two nights either, and in fact thought we were only due the previous night and were out for the evening when we arrived. Fortunately, with a simple call from their door we reached them and were able to let ourselves in. After I explained the problem we had with Agoda to the owner, they were sure Agoda would make it right, but they did not and said they sent the full payment for two nights to the owner, and the owner didn't choose to reimburse us because they were inconvenienced also. I will never use Agoda again. The owners did give us wonderful tips for sightseeing and fixed us a good breakfast even though they were leaving that day on a trip.
