Went here for a meal while in Dunedin for work and had a surprisingly good dining experience. The staff are well used to solo diners and I felt I had the right amount of attention from wait staff. The meal was a perfectly tasty chicken...More

Went with my daughter and Grandson. Food was good but not as good as I remember it many years ago. I thought it was slightly overpriced for what we received.

Thank you Julia for your feedback. We make sure all our prices are inline with the market. If you are wanting some cheaper meal options why not try our Wednesday night special or our current Friday night steak promotion? Aaron

I had several meals here during my stay. There is an excellent choice of food and wines by the glass, accompanied by good service. While I am not an oyster enthusiast, I did love the blue cod they served.

I stayed here for business. The hotel is located in central Invercargill. The hotel was replacing their carpets so the smell was quite strong as I entered. The staff were very friendly and helpful by offering to park my car. The rooms were pokey and...More

Hello OzTraveller, Thank you for taking time to provide feedback. The hotel is like you said, in the centre of town. Yet you seem surprised to be over looking a main street, did you asked to move to the back side of the hotel? Renovations...More

We ended up here as a result of booking mix up. The room was pleasant, though a little noisy. Well located in the centre of town with Valet parking.

Stayed here for a night when attending a friend of the families wedding. Despite the rather imposing Art Deco exterior and slightly tired interior it is in fact pretty good. The rooms have been modernized and they are large and the bed was comfortable and...More

The Kelvin Hotel is probably the fanciest hotel in Invercargill. It is clean, comfortable and pretentious. The service is professional but very cold. Somehow it has none of the Kiwi hospitality and open friendliness That you will experience in less fancy establishments like the Ascot...More

Hello UAvron, Wow, I am surprised you found the hotel Soulless. The hotel normally is commended for it's staff so I am disappointed you felt differently. We hope you come back and can get a real feel of the hotel. Aaron
