    Aging but with a sligh charm”

    Stayed for a single night, the room I got was quite large, for the price its a mixed bag, the carpets look dreadfully old, it didnt look dirty, there was a glass that was bit dirty, but the bedding looked and smelled fresh, the staff were friendly in accomodating a late arrival. There are better places to stay in the vicinity for the sam pricing unfortunately.

    Great place to stay”

    Ok it's not the newest place in Dunedin. But you get no complaints from us. If you want some where central, close to restaurants, easy to drive to the peninsular, and a short walk to town this is it. Helpful staff, clean rooms which are a bit dated, we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Would be my first port of call next time in Dunedin. Value for money here.

    Should have a small table in the room so that guests could keep stuff such as a glass, a bottle etc. The floor boards creak. Generally good value for the cost of the room.
