            Location, friendliness of owner

            Hulmes court is a lovely B&B very near the city centre. Walking distance to centre. Lovely room with breakfast room as well. The host , Norman, was very friendly and helpful- very welcoming! Dunedin is a lovely city well worth a stop for the beautiful old building s such as the Hulmes Court building. There is lots to to in the area as well and Norman is very helpful in this. I would recommend this B&B. we came in late and it was not problem for Norman to greet us.

            The Historic Hulme House and the Edwardian home next door

            I booked online, received confirmation of booking and yet when I arrived, Hulmes Court had no knowledge of my booking whatsoever! They graciously upgraded us to the Victoria room. As I had booked air tickets, hire car & accomodation at the same time I was unsure whether or not I'd paid and hence paid again. This meant Hulmes Court had to reimburse me once I returned home and looked at my Visa account.

            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.

            Great service; very comfortable and friendly; very flexible re arrangements (baggage etc); so close to the Town Hall and other parts of town that we used; clean and cosy

            Absolutely loved it. Made us start to plan for another visit to Dunedin and stay at Hulmes Court.

            Homely and comfortable room. Eclectic design.”

            Loved the animal print themed room. The hotel design was arty and interesting. A very comfortable, clean room. Excellent breakfast.

            My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hulmes B&B. The building is a beautiful historical design and has been decorated wonderfully. The breakfast was excellent and a good variety was provided. The owners two cats are so cute and we even had one of them Solstice visit our room for a cuddle. I would recommend Hulmes to anyone visiting the area and wanting easy access to the city centre.

            Old traditional house on a peak”

            Historical

            When we arrived the house it was sound 22:30 due to a longtime driving from Christchurch. The host was still waiting us ,so impressive. The house is a Victoria style 2 level B&B, which is fine decorated and very clean. Facilities are old but it doesnt matter. Car park is available at back yard, which can accommodate 5~6. Dining room is a small hall and with shelf of VHS tapes and books. Everything In this B&B is seeming back to 70s, even earlier. To those who love the style, u can't miss. Location is also very close to Dunedin centre through a very steep st. (not Baldwin steepest).overall it is a very special style hotel, all attendences are university student volunteers. Nice and warm!

            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.

            Value for money, central location and cosy rooms

            The B&B was centrally located near the city centre of Dunedin. It was only a 5min walk to the nearest i-site where we proceeded to book our tours for the next day. The rooms had themes and were very cosy and comfortable.

            The warm atmosphere and the location

            the b&b was deceptively small when i looked at it from the road. however, it was actually quite large with many rooms. i got a room on the top floor at the street level and it was really nice and clean. the location was very good (only 5 min walk from city center). the staff was friendly and the breakfast was adequate...with a pet cat for me to pat! the atmosphere was generally very warm and home-like - just the way it supposed to be for a bed & breakfast. oh yes, the free wifi was really good too

            The great hostess, the spa bath, peace and quietness

            We found the room and bathroom of a generous size. The house was very old but well maintained. It was close to town, (5 minute walk) and had free off street parking. It was well within walking distance from the nearest eateries that were of a high std. We enjoyed our stay and would gladly stay there on our next trip to Dunedin.

            A clean and comfortable Bed and Breakfast in a good central location, ideal for shopping, eating and drinking. Being situation at the top of a hill it has a view over the city of Dunedin. The staff were friendly and breakfast is continental style in what you can have. The rooms do not have en-suite and there is a shared shower-room for up to 3 rooms. The stay here represents good value.

            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.

            A wonderful experience at Dunedin's century old house, with comfortable home furnishing. Most surprisingly, it is only a few munites walk from the center of the city. Breakfast serving was also a nice addition.
