We arrived late and had such a warm welcome. Nothing was a problem. I also had to leave later than I thought, again not a problem. Our room smoke alarm started to beep @ 11pm, no worries to this owner along he came to sort it out straight away. Would definitely recommend this clean, friendly and well run accommodation. .

We stayed here for 4 nights as we got to know Dunedin across Christmas and our hosts were very pleasant, housekeeping was perfect and the room was very comfortable. Being in North Dunedin was not a problem as we got to know the layout of the city and the shopping district. The hotel is opposite a rugby park and on...
