        Location to Dunedin City.

        Experienced problems not once but seven times with room entry lock...

        Convenient place close to town for function we were attending

        The room was hot, and I mean extremely hot, we had to sleep with the window open all night as there was no sort of air conditioning in the room, the night was not overly hot so the room should have cooling in it, being as it was that hot I could not sleep all night nor could my partner. Bed was extremely hard, does no one use medium comfort beds anymore? The shower fawcett could not move.. Im not tall and could not reach it but my partner is and at risk of breaking it as it was that stiff we couldnt move at at all.

        Great place to stay close to the Octagon and within walking distance of everything. Just bear in mind that you will most likely have to park on surrounding streets but that was no issue and parking is cheap.

      • Family with children
        5.4

        Good location

        We found that the room was a bit warm and that made it a bit uncomfortable. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful but we were given different information on a couple of things and were told that it was us who had misunderstood. The housekeeping service was not completed in our room when we had come back in the afternoon. We had gone out at about 9am and back by 1.30pm and housekeeping were still doing our floor.

      • Single
        8.0

        Lack of car parking without charge

      • Couple
        8.8

        If you are going to hold functions at 8am on a Sunday morning you should think about either limiting the sound option or sound proofing the function room.
