I booked a single bed room, simple, with shared bathroom. There is a selection of rooms, many with ensuite. My room was comfortable, clean and perfect for my 3 night visit. Breakfast was plentiful and many choices. Filtered water, coffee and tea available 24/7. From 6am till 9pm there is someone available for what ever question you have. Note for...

Very central to town of Dunedin although at the top of a very steep hill. Parking could be an issue on a weekday but I was okay on a Sunday. Very friendly comfortable B&b for the price I did not have high expectations. Shared joint toilet and bathroom could be challenging at peak times. I left too early for breakfast...

The location of this B&B was good for access to the city but the very steep road up to the property and the parking was not mentioned anywhere. The drive to the small car park is not for the faint-hearted and the walk up and down the hill to town needs a few stops. The B&B appeared to be run...

This is an old quirky B&B run by a nice helpful woman from Vladivostok and her kiwi partner. It has a variety of rooms with and without an ensuite bathroom. Its around the corner up View street which is a block long but very steep hill. Its not a fancy place and breakfast consists of many types bread , cereal...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. Although this hotel is ten minutes’ walk from Octagon (City Center), this hotel is situated in upside hill area. There is no public transport from Dunedin Airport to city center. Only door to door shuttle service is available from the airport. City center is quite far Dunedin Airport. This hotel is very...

This place was a bit weird. Friendly staff member and nice comfy bed but old and shabby interior, only one bathroom to be seen (to be shared among many guests), and poor selection at breakfast. Good location and price but could be cleaner and have better upkeep.

This B&B looks like it's out of a fairytale - so cute! Staff were very pleasant. The room was quite spacious with a comfortable bed and decent bathroom. For breakfast there was cereal, juice, yoghurt and fruit and toast. Its a 7 minute walk downhill to the Octagon area where there are lots of restaurants and bars.

I could not in good conscience recommend anyone stay at this place. Maybe if it was called a boarding house instead of B&B that would be more apt for what it is. Location is good if you want to be near the Centre of town, the Octagon. There was a friendly black cat unlike the hosts. Driveway is incredibly steep,...

The website made this joint look great - beautiful gardens and architecture. Well, it ain't necessarily so. While our check in was ok, staff went into hiding for the rest of our stay. Sometimes in plain sight. The rooms were not even in the same building. Dodgy. A general air of laziness pervades the establishment. Weeds everywhere, uneven paths with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hulmes Court, two historic homes next door to each other a few minutes walk from the visitor centre. Norman owns an advertising company, is interested in history, philosophy, geography and stood for parliament twice and is well travelled. However, Norman at 37 and his staff (local university students) are youthful, intelligent, educated and friendly. We have a cool black cat called solstice. Plus you have free use of our internet, laundry, off street parking and mountain bikes. ... more   less
