We had the self-contained room which had a big bedroom space, ensuite bathroom, kitchen and dining table area, which was ideal for our 4 night stay over the New Year period.
We could easily eat in, or get into Dunedin city centre for restaurants.
Rooms were comfortable (maybe a tad old fashioned) but were fine and good value for money.
Stephen was a lovely host, doing good breakfasts and providing local tips.
The location is ok - 10 minute walk down the hill to the Speights Brewery and the Octagon.
