                  Nice place to sleep in Dunedin”

                  Lets face it, at a hotel you want a decent bed, good lighting (I hate dim light) and a hot shower. Ocean Beach Hotel will provide you with that. If you want the penthouse suite at the Ritz, you've got the wrong hotel. Run the water and you'll get it hot! The heat pump will heat the room if it's cold outside, I don't get a pain around my wait in these beds (fat person problem). And all at the right price! Keep up the good work, Ocean Beach.

                  This little Hotel is great. A wonderful location out by the beach in Dunedin. The hosts were frendily and extremely helpful. The place was simple but perfert for our needs with a young child. We will be back for sure!

                  It is conveniently located in a short driving distance from Dunedin city centre. The beach is quite nearby and the room is spacious and clean. Parking is not an issue, as you may park right infront of your room.

                  This hotel was fine for our one night stay in Dunedin. The beds were comfortable and we were able to make breakfast in our room. The hotel was out of the city but with a car was only a 5 minute drive into the city. The bathroom could have done with somewhere to put your toiletries.

                  Clean, Quiet and Convenient”

                  This hotel is perfectly situated for those who love beaches, but also the convenience of being close to town. I could go for a scenic beach jog just a short distance away at St Kilda, or walk down to St Clair beach for the lovely cafes serving fantastic coffees, salads and other meals and snacks. The rooms are small, but clean and well maintained. The only thing I missed was a microwave. The bar next door sells great pub-style meals and provides a nice, friendly environment to chill with a cold drink. You are only a 2 minute drive to a laundromat, for those who are away from home for more than a week at a time. A short walk or 2 minute drive to all sorts of shops, restaurants, businesses and tourist sights. A really great place to stay and I would definitely return. Good value for money.

                  location is great, got beautiful scene of the lake and mountain. The room is spacious and neat.

                  we stayed for two nights and were very satisfied with the location and price. Given the location and the facilities of this hotel, the price is unbelievably low. The room is neat and spacious, room service is good. It is very convenient to get the center of the town from this hotel. The stuff of the hotel are all very nice with smiles. I love this hotel and will recommend it to my friends.

                  Everything you need and nothing you don't. Clean, tidy grounds, warm. I love staying here. Doesn't have kitchens in the rooms so you either have to bring food from home that the bar will heat up, eat in the bar, or get takeaways. Don't bother going into the shop across the road. It is terrible. Get the bus to the supermarket instead.
