St Clair”

Location,location,location!

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.

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.

Great wee wkend away, quiet & great location”

I'd stay here again, the location was suburb, wee cafes, bars and great resturants a short walk, whilst hearing the occean, st Claire's pool cafe Saturday morning was amazing, view & food. The bed was soft & comfy, great sheets, and electric blanket a bonus, heat pump for warmth , The only downfall was the Tv wasn't opposite the bed, so couldn't stay warm in bed and watch telly. If it had a,swivel even woupd be better. The bath was the main feature for me and hug pressure shower. Will stay again. Bit disappointing Dunedin isn't cheap like the rest of nz.But a great stay.

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.

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.

Only a ten minute drive to the city, very relaxing surroundings and a few good restaurants near by.

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.

Sea view booking not exactly what we expected”

clean, good staff, acceptable location

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.

Great seaside location, amazing food, friendly staff, very clean

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.

Graduation Weekend”

By the sea, comfortable bed, spacious room

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.
