Property location to the city.....excellent. Extremely comfortable Victorian house (mansion) renovated by the owner and extremely authentic. I loved the two night stay and the personal guest involved breakfasts. The down side is Dunedin was raining when we arrived, which is beyond the control of our hosts, but was fine and cold for the next two days.

Great location and amazing house

Pros: The house is goovy and well set up. Location is fantastic and parking is provided
Cons: The beds could be made a bit better and the mattresses need updating. They were a bit "soggy", at least the single bed I stayed in was
Location: The location is in the middle of town and there are lots of restaurants etc within walking distance
This is an easy walk into the city and a great house to stay in. The breakfast was yummy (self-serve) and the room was as described. Maybe slightly over-priced but still worth staying there.

Princess in the turret?

Pros: In the centre of town. The history in the house.
Cons: No plug or strainer in our basin. Just a black yucky hole to not look down while brushing teeth or drop your rings down.
Location: Just above the octagon walk to movies, bars, restaurants and art gallery. Could walk to Stadium too.
An interesting old house with an historic places plaque. A fairy tale house with different levels and roof lines and a mysterious turret room above our ensuite room .....was the manhole in our ceiling it's only entry? Bed was comfy ,breakfast good, room warm. Not plush but a nice experience.

Pros: I guess the breakfast was ok It's a lovely old building with character .
Cons: Make sure the cat does not get shut in any rooms.
Location: Very steep hill so you get plenty of exercise
My daughter picked up the key early as we were going to a family event. When we got back around 10.20 and opened the door a Ginger cat rushed out. It had poohed and wee all over the bed. I tried to clear it up but the bed smelt so bad it was impossible to sleep in so I slept in a chair. Not knowing Dunsdine, taxi service or where to go and stay. This is really bad. Then in the morning no hot water for a shower. We asked the lady doing breakfast and she said to go and find one upstairs. So we had to go in search of another shower having no idea where it was. Yes we did have a shower in the end. I phoned up about this but they don't care saying that the cat doesn't normally go in the bedrooms. Well the way the bed smelt I would be fairly certain that it's happened before!!
