Well within a good distance of everything. Cozy, comfortable, warm Southern comfort with old country ambiance. Accomodating and helpful staff. Short distance to Cadbury for those who love chocolates. Historic Dunedin railway station is just a few meters further.

Good comfortable hotel walking distance from the train station. Rooms are clean and a good size. No street noise and walking distance to some excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants. Not far from the popular Octagon in the city.
