WIsh I could have stayed longer...”

Nicer place then expected. Easy access to town. Was there to see the lil blue penguins at night and this provided a place to get a great sleep afterwards before heading onto Dunedin. Place looked and felt new, clean, everything where it should be. Only concern if you are a light sleeper try to request a unit that does not back to the main road. There was construction going on right outside on the road that made more noise then would have otherwise occurred, I slept fine, wife not so much. As I said, the back is to the road so isn't bad, just request as you wish. I would not hesitate to return. Owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The town really surprised me in what it had to offer and how awesome the architecture was.

Clean, big bathroom and great location

The hotel is located within 5 min walking distance of Octagon and george street where all the shopping and restaurants are located. Room was spacious and clean. The bathroom has an elegant feel to it. The only downside is that there is no free wifi which should be standard feature these days. Free parking so near to the city centre was very useful as well.

Easy walk to downtown area and Dunedin facilities; obliging hosts

We stayed for two nights and had a second floor apartment with small balconies from both the living room and bedroom. The apartment was roomy and had good facilities (although microwave only) and the easy walk to the downtown area and the aquatic centre was a bonus. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and answered our questions cheerfully. The one downside was that the bed was a queen we are used to king. Also all other rooms that we stayed in on our 10 day trip through the South Island were king.
