Kingsgate Hotel Dunedin

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Not sure what the walls are made of between the rooms, but we could hear our neighbour's conversation loud and clear, which wasn't even amusing because it was in a foreign language. By 1am at night I'd had enough and knocked on the wall which made them go quiet. The room's decor is old and uninspiring. Would not stay there again.

We stayed here for two nights during our time in Dunedin. First impression not so good as the hotel looked a little dated but our room was large and well fitted with a balcony so we had good space. The hotel is very near the Octagon where there are some great shops, restaurants and bars. But be warned it is very hilly! We did not use the common areas to eat or drink so cannot comment, other than to say the bar was not that well stocked when we checked! Best to go out to eat and drink but fine for sleep only.

The accomadation ia great but its better if you had another room that has 2 singles but probably you don't have that much space to build it in so that ok. Overall it was a fantastic hotel and thanks for everything

Good sized rooms and beds. although the balcony of the room we stayed in wasn't wide enough for seating, it offered excellent city views both day and night! Largest TV i've seen in a hotel room with several channels on offer! Restaurant downstairs was handy and offered excellent meals along with it's friendly staff.

One of the better Kingsgate chain experiences for us. Clean, great tv, big rooms, comfy beds, balcony etc, just what you want. Parking is a bit of a pain and it's a tough walk back up the hill with a full belly after dinner LOL

friendly staff and will come back for sure. love the laundry and dryer facilities next to the lift. Perfect for couples and family. Went to restaurant, excellent food and lovely place. Will recommend to friends

The receptionist greeted us with a friendly hello and a smile and after that no other staff member smiled or acknowledged us. The hotel room was cleaned to a high standard well done housekeeping the person who cleaned our room was soo(that's what it said on our room card) well done! The walls of our room on the 3rd floor were too thin as we could hear everything from next door. We had to call reception at 11.30pm to ask them to ask the other guests to keep the noise down so we could sleep. The good point of the hotel is its location but next time we will pick a motel for a better nights sleep. The staff seem uninterested in working there time to find a new career.

Excellent stay, as usual! Great location and value for money. Enjoyed our breakfast and dinner at Jimmy's. There's an occasional carparking problem, but was okay this itme. First time in a refurbished room, and it was lovely. Easy (and free) nternet access.

Good location, cheap unfortunately I didn't realise it was graduation weekend(was down in dunedin for family wedding) and the external noise (because of location) was really bad. Predominantly because of the capers outside and the thin walls etc

The room we had was really big for 2 persons. We booked 2 rooms and it was very clean. We also love the bathroom for it was spacious. The parking is not so good coz its a bit steep and difficult to park but would recommend to other travelers.
