Kingsgate Hotel Dunedin

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Quite a dated old lady right in the centre of town but the generosity of spirit that prevails throughout her makes up for any short comings if compared with the newer establishments in Dunedin. The 5th floor suites are well appointed with the views both over the city and the harbour - stunningly beautiful at night! No need to ration the complimentary teas, coffees and/or hot chocolates in your room as there's more than enough and please be hungry when you sit down for meals at their restaurant. Breakfast is Buffet style, both hot and Continental and althought the nightime menu is somewhat limited the food is excellent and portions are Huge, the staff welcoming, pleasant and helpful. A convenient and very pleasant base from which to explore Dunedin and the surrounds. Five minute walk to the Octagon - restaurants, art galleries, theatres etc.. Will certainly recommend.

Enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Beds were comfy, rooms clean and tidy and staff friendly. Good value for money and great location just a short walk to the Octagon. Room had a balcony and a view over the city so it felt roomy. Bathroom was pretty new and it was nice to have your own Sky box if you fancied blobbing out. Would definitely recommend.

Great location up on the hill that overlooks the city. Great staff, room was okay, partially small for a double room. Good facilities also, clean and tidy when arrived, along with daily cleaning service

Stayed here for business. Tidy, warm and comfortable. Showing a little age, but it's a reasonable hotel if you're not expecting the Ritz. Room was very warm in the middle of an Otago winter. Parking was minimal, but on this occasion, easy.

Three night stay here recently its just up the hill from the Octagon easy walk down but a bit steep coming up if you are not fit. Nice small balcony to get fresh air during the slightly warmer part of the day. Good view over the city. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free parking. All in all good value for a hotel so close to city centre. I Would certainly stay again. We didn't eat at the hotel as other arrangements but menu looked good. free wi fi on a daily basis

Very pleasant staff and efficient check in. Room was very comfortable and clean. Very warm, great heating though outside very cold. Lovely view of the city. Easy walking distance to all major attractions. Disappointed that soap, shampoo, coffee, tea and chocolate was not restocked daily. WiFi was free daily but limited to 500mb

Nice and tidy, central to everything, this hotel is handy to the city for any type of visit. The room was all we needed for our visit, was comfortable and warm. Car parking is at a premium at this hotel though and two of the three nights we couldn't park on site. Handy to restaurants and The Octagon. We would stay here again.

Located within walking distance of the Octogon with plenty of spots to grab a meal. Room was clean, functional and quiet. Room service quick and easy. Has on site parking but was full so parked in street which is free until 9am.

We had 3 nights here & found the hotel to have very nice staff, it was clean in all areas & the food in the hotel restaurant was very nice, both for breakfast & dinner. A good view over the city & the hotel is really central to shops etc. As it was mid winter the rooms were sunny after a frost & there is outside access to the balcony.

Live in North Island NZ but visit family in Dunedin once a year. Love the hotel as close to the city and very comfortable. Excellent service and all amenities. Love full range of Sky TV -was able to have family over to relax and watch the Rugby. The best place to stay .will come back every time ( even if the city build a new hotel in front of it as planned)
