Warm friendly staff, fantastic reasonably priced food, and loved all the history of Dunedin and the collectables. I love the pub vibe and so did all the guests we invited back. We would definitely stay there again.

Had a heap of character, bar was fantastic with lead light glass windows, leather couches and old english decor. Meals for dinner was cooked to perfection served promptly with a smile and very good value with a varied menu to choose from. Had a room close to air conditioning outlet so found it hard to sleep and blinds needed mending.

Room was so clean. Great shower pressure, comfy bed & pillows. Excellent location & really central. There was a bit of road traffic noise but you get that in the city, it certainly wouldn't stop me from staying again

The hotel was in an excellent location. The staff were friendly and the room was characterful with an interesting view. On-site parking was great. Comfortable bed. The bathroom was very tired.
