Room is older but clean and looked after. When we called ahead to check parking it was encouraged to get the paid parking in case there weren't any parks available. We arrived and stayed to find half of the car park available, which we than felt a bit silly about.

Hi there, Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay with us at the Kingsgate Hotel Dunedin. I am so glad that you found the room to be clean and looked after. We do encourage booking a car park if you want to guarantee having a space available to you as our free parking is limited run on a first-in first-served basis so we can't guarantee that there will be any available. Thank you Tracy Keenan Assistant Manager

Friendly staff at the front desk. It’s at the top of a BIG hill but it’s a hilly town. Get on the Lime scooters.
