Stayed there on the weekend. Fantastic location and really close the Speights, and Octagon! Very Clean - Very Nice and Friendly! Will be coming back! The breakfast was lovely as well. Just one thing - one of the best views of the city! You will enjoy it!

If you want a friendly hotel, a bit different from the boring hotel formula, a bit of NZ hospitality vibe, a bit of history, free parking and a short walk to the city - this is the place for you. We will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Two caveats--the hotel is at the top of a hill so it has great views and is close to the centre but you'll need to be happy to walk up a steep hill or get a short taxi. We enjoyed stretching our legs! Also, the rooms are quite small, or ours was anyway. That...

Brothers Boutique was chosen for us by our travel agent, as part of a "luxury" holiday tour of New Zealand. We arrived early, were warmly welcomed, able to check in, and given some information on things to do in the city and beyond. The property is well placed to explore the city on foot. Our room was very clean and...

We are sorry to hear that your stay at the Brothers Boutique Hotel did not meet all of your expectations, as being (what your travel agent described) a “luxury” hotel. We certainly don’t advertise on any platform as it being so, perhaps this review should have been directed to your agent. We spend time with our descriptions on our website...

We were begin March 2017 for 3 nights in B&B The Brothers Boutique Hotel. A lovely B&B. The rooms were not very spacious, but well clean and comfortable. A very friendly host, who offered us a welcome drink the 1st evening. The B&B is a bit outside the centre of the city, but only 15 minutes away from the centre.....

An excellent place to stay in Dunedin. Enough above the Octagon for wonderful views and a worthy walk after yet another great NZ restaurant but not tooo test your fitness. Rooms small but functional and clean as. We had a top floor room. Common balcony with The view. Breakfast is just right and the hotel staff are as knowledgeable and...

A lovely spot in the heart of Dunedin, close to restaurants, museums and cultural sites. The rooms are simple and very clean and the wet en-suite is a great use of space. Rod and Ali were wonderfully accommodating and friendly without being intrusive. Highly recommend this charming boutique hotel to all travelers to Dunedin.

The hotel has an interesting history and is located within walking distance of the city centre. Our room was charming with relics of the old chapel and stained glass windows. The bathroom was very small with an open shower, no bath tub and a very small sink. The room was very clean. The promised city view on the description for...

Great hotel in a converted monastery. Wonderful location on the hill above town within easy walking distance of all attractions. Great rooms and central spaces to relax in. My new favorite hotel in New Zealand.

We stayed for two nights and were sad to leave, having felt very much at home, due in large part to the genuine interest that the staff take in their visitors. We can only endorse all the positive comments that previous reviewers have made - no negatives for us. I loved the building and our room. And we thought the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to a special place in Dunedin. Relax in our European style family run Boutique Hotel close to inner city amenities with spectacular views of the City and harbour. Extensive renovations have been done to this former Christian Brothers 1920's stately residence transforming it into elegant heritage accommodation with 15 bedrooms and all with modern tiled en suites. The Brothers offers a mixture of convenience, history, charm, elegance and tranquillity, with the building retaining much of its original grandeur. Unfortunately the Hotel is unsuitable for infants, babies and young children under 16 and can't be accommodated. The Brothers is also quite different from anything else in Dunedin. The intention during the refurbishment was to be sympathetic to the building's history and wherever possible the original character has been retained. As a result most of our rooms are of a size often found in European Cities and maybe considered small by some. If room size is important to you or the prospect of walking 10 minutes uphill from the city centre is a daunting issue then other options maybe more suitable for you . A welcoming drink is offered early evening in the main Guest lounge. Book direct with us for better price and room options. ... more   less
