“Delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

We spent one night in Dunedin at the Bluestone on George and wish we could have stayed longer. Dunedin is a beautiful city and the Bluestone is delightful. Because the hotel is set back from the road, we drove by it at first. We had to drive up a fairly steep driveway, but the higher location makes the views better. Our room was large, extremely clean, comfortable and modern. The fully equipped kitchen would be great for anyone who wants to cook a meal. The washer/dryer combination was interesting -- read ALL the instructions before you use it! It takes a while to wash and dry a small load. The owner was very friendly and gave us some suggestions for places to visit in Dunedin. A small friendly cat is in residence.

The hotel's location is excellent, the hotel is new and modern, the room large and beautifully decorated, the spa bath was a very welcomed addition. The room alas a watching machine and dryer too. The staff was very helpful and we enjoyed our stay in Dunedin very much!!!

Loved the set up here - almost an apartment and very modern.

Only a few minutes walk into the centre of the Dunedin.

This is a real gem of a hotel the only problem is the fact it is near the Uni which means lots of noisy students live next door, this wasn't helped by the fact we stayed during orientation week and it was party central. The hotel do provide ear plugs but for me this isn't really what I want to have to wear to get to sleep. On the other hand the location is also really good as it is very close to the city centre. The rooms are really well decorated the bed very comfortable. It also has a massive spa bath and the staff are lovely.

Check in service was great and very helpful in giving directions. We stayed in room 303 the Premier Studio Apartment Elite, however we were disappointed as we had paid to recieve an upgraded larger room which was in all very tiny and the balcony was also quite small. The room did come with washing machine and dryer and also featured a double spa bath and the decor was supberb with a very comfy bed. We were told the views would look over the harbour, however the view was a little bit of a disappointment as you could only see scatters of the harbour. With the parking it was for free but you are on a hill.There are lifts to each floors, and Wi Fi was $5 per 300MB.Location great as was a 5min walk to the CBD.
