                Fair enough”

                Building is old but renovated. Except that the hot water doesn't function at all! It is very inconvenient for us (especially the travel was during winter). Furthermore, there was no staff for us to attend to when this happened.

                The room was clean and as the pictures suggested. The breakfast was a little basis and for the night we were there, we didn’t really see any staff (our room key was left sellotaped to the front door). Location was 5 minutes from the octagon. Would definitely recommend for a night or 2 stay

                Beautiful old Dame! Fabulous location 5 minutes walk to the Octagon. A peep of a harbour view too. Very clean. Crisp fresh linen. A very old building so a wee bit cold on the stormy night we were there, but plenty of spare blankets and heaters. A nice, simple breakfast in a really lovely dining room. Loved the staircase too - just gorgeous! Will stsy again on our next visit to Dunedin.

                Good room rate, Good outlook, good location

                Should be a nice place to stay in Dunedin. 1. Attractive room rate, which is good for budget visitors. 2. The building itself is historical building, so the outlook is very very good. 3. The facilities is not very classical, pretty good! And different rooms have its different characters. Foe example, the room that I stay has many books available to read. 4. Nice location, 5 mins walk to the Center of Dunedin (Octagon ), and the surroundings is high schools, etc.

                This is a very good B&B that is close to all the downtown action. Good cafes, bars and restaurants close by. About 30 min walk to the uni. Room was nice and big with just fine shared bathroom. Free and fast WiFi. They have a box of plug adapters in case you forget to bring one for your laptop. Staff really nice. Only complaint is that the breakfast was basic in my opinion - fruit salad, juice / water coffee / tea, toast, instant oatmeal you can make yourself - but no hot brekkie. Most of the time I was too busy in the morning to stay long so it did not matter, and great brekkie spots are only a 20 min walk away... but I was not impressed with this small part of the experience.

                V nice cottage room. I booked a double room with private bathroom. It was in another block. It has good insulation and heat pump was installed. The room is spacious with a coach, table and TV. We have got an extra bed between the room and the bathroom. Someone can sleep there actually. We got in the room with the heat pump turned on. It was v impressive. Even the bathroom has got the heater as well. For the value of money, getting the big room and facility, even a simple continental breakfast is awesome! The cats are friendly! They stand on the table or chair while you are eating.

                Good value but very average breakfast”

                Location, large room, friendly staff

                Room was large and clean. Centrally located but still quiet. Friendly welcome. Fast internet. Comfortable bed. Breakfast was very average but I thought good value overall and would stay here if I was in Dunedin again.

                Comfortable and relaxing stay”

                Comfortable large clean rooms, nice decor and garden, friendly staff and cats

                It was truly a pleasant and very comfortable stay. Hulmes Court is conveniently located near the town centre. Staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were tastefully decorated and gardens looks lovely in bloom. The two friendly resident cats are such a great welcome party every morning at the breakfast room and added a homey touch to the place for weary travellers. Recommended to people who like cats and garden and lovely quiant rooms.
