The room was satisfactory in spite of the stairs (note stair lift required). However, there was no key, so the security of personal property was tenuous. The electronic card processing machine would not process my card as it was, in the words of a local bank, "out of the ark". The present owners do not have a restaurant or bar...

Stephen the new owner took over in September 2016 so many earlier reviews may now not apply, that said he has retained much of the original contents and the feel is still that of a victorian boarding house. Breakfasts are part of the package but are continental and bread is plain white sliced, maybe addition of wholemeal etc would make...

Steven is a great host - had booked a basic room with shared services and he upgraded me to a beautiful room with private bathroom for an extra 20 bucks as it was empty. Very nice guy, personal service.

My parents and I stayed at this Victorian House earlier in the year. The house had a lot of character, being completely furnished in the Victorian style. Despite it being an old house, it was comfortable and had all the necessities. My parents thought the owner, Steven, was a hilarious and accommodating host, which made the stay all the more...

The property is a heritage Victorian house in a quiet suburb in Dunedin about a 10 minute drive from the city centre. The house itself is completely furnished and kept in a traditional Victorian style throughout and if you like this style it is a delight and personally I loved it. The reason why the stay was somewhat unusual is...

My husband and I, along with one other couple, made reservations months ago to stay at this B&B in October 2016. We had a confirmation number too. When we arrived, it looked like no one had been around for quite awhile. Per instructions, I rang the doorbell. No answer. There was a note next to the doorbell that said to...

We stayed two nights in this beautiful Victorian hotel. We loved the romantic atmosphere of the whole house. Our hosts Alan and Olivia are very friendly and helpful in every way and Alan served us with delicious breakfasts. They made us feel at home and our room was beautiful.
