Very accomodating staff - facilities very clean and we were even upgraded to an apartment, which was nice. My one recommendation would be that if you are a light sleeper, make sure that you get rooms that do not face the road - a few loud uni students late at night walking past (but part and parcel of being in Dunedin!)

If you are needing to attend events at the St David Centre or the University generally, Alhambra Oaks can't be beaten. it is 5 minutes walk away, clean, comfortable and the staff are super super helpful. The small studio really is small but it has everything you need. You can also walk into town in about 10 minutes.
