    Accommodation is always good at Southern Cross Dunedin so that is why we chose to stay again. I would recommend to anyone to stay here. Close to town and warm and very friendly. The bed is always very comfortable.

    There is just something about this hotel, it's nice. Warm rooms, newly renovated clean and comfortable, a good restaurant and bar but most of all, it's the people and the service they provide. It's also close to the Octagon

    The rooms were extremely comfortable- beds are amazing! The hotel itself is about 5 mins from the centre of the city and well served by bars and restaurants within its own building. Breakfast was fantastic- very generous and broad selection of different choices.
