Very rundown. Musty smell. It's definitely not what the photos say. The rooms are extremely old style. No lift. Really old style Kitchen. One bathroom very old style. The photos are extremely deceiving.

It is extremely disappointing to receive a negative review, The fact that we removed you from our property due to your disposition probably caused this response. I ask others who read this to read the other reviews and make up their own minds

Perfect location for a one night stay for business, away from the hustle and bustle of the City but within 10 minutes drive from the centre. With free wifi, spacious apartment including desk/dressing table, garaged parking and a choice of cafes and restaurants 2-3 minutes walk, as well as the lovely St Claires Esplanade and beach for a relaxing walk...

The units here are very spacious, well equipped and immaculately clean. The unit had 4 rooms, lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. Comfortable and reasonably priced. There is off street parking. It is 2 min walk to the beach and cafes. Shops are handy. On bus route. Service was exceptional particularly with assistance in medical emergency. Rooms on upper floors cost...

These apartments are close to a lovely beach (only a partial view from the apartment) and a little away from the city centre (you need transport). There is parking on the street and a few small garages. The manager/owner (?) was particularly chatty and helpful in recommendations. He was proud of his town and didn't understand how we could only...

We had a 'luxury' apartment whose main benefit was that it had a balcony on two sides, affording great views over the bay. The kitchenette was limited but adequate for a short stay. Washing machine was out of order but staff kindly did washing for us. Useful underground car park

Fabulous small hotel almost on the promenade, close to excellent cafes and restaurants, and only a short drive into Dunedin. Spacious apartments with good facilities ideal for family and plenty of parking in street. Excellent location for visiting Dunedin and Otago Peninsular.

Apartments were surprisingly spacious. Nice high ceilings and a good enough kitchen to cook in, with medium sized fridge, full hob with oven, microwave and small dishwasher. Bathroom was a bit annoying with no shower base and just a shower curtain. Windows were rattling but fixed by putting cardboard pieces in the sides. The Queen bed was too soft both...

I am sorry you have had a less than satisfactory stay in Dunedin, unfortunately beds are a matter of taste, what is too soft for one person is too hard for the next we try to find the middle road and suit as many people as possible and believe we are being successful at that but we are always looking...
