Chapel Apartments were booked for us by our Australian travel agent. We were two couples travelling in New Zealand and had just finished cycling the Otago Rail Trail. We loved the central location, the converted church makeover and the comfortable cosy style of the apartments. The bedrooms were large, both with ensuites which had underfloor heating. We used the washing... More

Nice accommodation with off street parking. Unusual that there is no reception and just a phone to call the manager who is off site. I liked having a pin on the door and no key, I just hope the pin is changed regularly! The wifi was free but very slow. Appreciated the black out curtains and under floor heating in... More

These units are really well situated but we found the service a bit lacking. On arrival there was no-one at reception to explain what goes on and parking seems to be an issue. The units themselves have been done quite well but the small things are lacking. There is a micro-wave but no micro-wave bowls or dishes. No bread knife,... More

Thank you for your review. we send all arrivals an email which reads: Hello .... You may use the park for Apartment 1 at the bottom of the steps. (may differ depending on availability) Being an inner-city, historic building, on-site parking at the Chapel is limited.

The uniqueness of the building, the location and boutique nature of the accomodation attracted me to this place. We were 5 adults needing 3 bedrooms, a car park and central location. I was a bit surprised that there was no reception but rather a board with the security code access and a phone direct to an offsite manager. I was... More

Thank you for your review, when we have guests staying upstairs in the room with a shower and no toilet facilities we will in future inform guests to use the downstairs bathroom.

I recently stayed at Chapel Apartments with a work colleague. The apartment had 2 bedrooms with ensuites and a lovely lounge and kitchen. Loved the stained glass windows. Close to the the city centre . Dunedin was cold but the floor and wall heating made the place beautifully warm. Highly recommend this converted chapel.

I was visiting my son in Sydney and we took a side trip to NZ. The apartments were perfect. Ours was two bedrooms, two bathrooms. It was very comfortable and so centrally located to everything! Cameron was so nice and just happened to be there when we arrived.

Just a 1 night stay in Dunedin on business - and I couldn't have chosen a better spot. My colleague and I shared a 2 bedroom apartment. Separate rooms and separate ensuite bathrooms make this the perfect spot for travelling with workmates. Would definitely stay again.
