We stayed here for one night, whilst in Dunedin for a show! upon check in the service seemed a little poor, handing over the key and giving no helpful guidance on where abouts the room was! upon entering the room, there was a nasty smell, and the extractor fan was rubbish!!!
The older guy that was on reception was extremely rude and unhelpful particularly about the parking situation (there is off street parking but its in a car park which is a 1.50 an hour (max 2 hours), where as it clearly states on their website that there is plenty of parking available for guest! tip, do not bring a car if you stay here).
Overall a very disappointing stay for a great location!
