Recent guest reviews

Good reasonably priced hotel close to university. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff are very good and helpful. The hotel also has a good restaurant and bar. We will definitely stay there again when down in Dunedin.

This is a lovely place to stay, good location and lovely gardens to sit out in. This hotel is close to the Botanical Gardens. We parked our car - free in the hotel car park and walked everywhere, it took about 20minutes into the city centre. Ask for a room on the first floor overlooking the garden, be aware no lift if mobility an issue Room good sized 2 queen beds, overlooking the garden, bahtroom good toiletries, shower small if you are tall, lots of fluffy towels. Enjoyed the tea and hot chocolate provided, bar fridge to put your drinks in. There is the usual hotel and road noise I have ear plugs to block out snoring husband. We had breakfast here one morning eggs cooked to order usual hotal buffet but lovely and freshly cooked, they kept up with a big tour group in. We had an Accor card breakfast was $24 for 2 this is the only time I have been given a welcome dring for one guest when 2 are staying a minor quibble. We had a lovely stay and would return

A well located hotel set in beautiful surroundings with the Botanic gardens across the road and within walking distance of central Dunedin city. We had a large,very comfortable room leading to a beautifully kept garden area, very good meals in the dining room and friendly ,helpful staff and lots of parking space. What else could you want?

I was down on part business part pleasure. The venue is situated at the far end of town not far from the university. Handy to buses to town or easy walk. The rooms were quiet, warm and comfortable. The balcony was nice to sit out in the sun. The grounds were very pleasant. Evening meal was very nice. Breakfast average. Warm friendly staff.

The Mercure Dunedine Leisure Lodge is a big place with plenty of space. It is located about a half hours walk from the centre of Dunedine. We were warmly welcomed and well briefed by the front desk and quickly shown our rooms. Our room was not the biggest but clean, tidy and comfortable enough. Queen size bed, TV, fridge, Iron/board, coffee/tea etc. Clean bathroom with walk in shower, plenty towels and toiletries. The problem is that the hotel is a bit drab and outdated and could do with a modern makeover and freshening up. There is a good looking dinning room and well stocked bar neither of which we used but both looked welcoming and popular. There was plenty of free car parking and adequate Wi-Fi.

We stayed for three nights while travelling with a group. The hotel is very near to the Botanic Gardens in Dunedin and 20-30 minutes walk to town using Great King or George Street. During our first evening meal the fire alarm sounded, the staff were calm and efficient while helping us to evacuate. We were later rewarded with free drinks. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Buffet breakfast and set menus for dinner were very good quality

I always stay here when I'm travelling for Business, so it was a no brainer to stay here when I was travelling on holiday with my family! Being a Accor Hotel is great for my points, But that's not the only reason I keep coming back.

Booked here for two nights traveling with friends. Accommodation was better than expected, Rooms clean and spacious, beds comfortable. The only missing item was air-conditioning but this was not required as we were there in April and the weather cool. This hotel does not have self catering facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful. Also there is no lift so if you have a problem with stairs request a ground floor room.

The hotel was very nice and not too far from the city. The receptionists were first class until we came to check out, the gentleman on the desk left us standing by the desk for five minutes without looking up from his computer or saying anything so we left our keys and departed, some people need to be taught manners, it left a very sour taste which was totally unnecessary.

When we arrived our hotel room was prepared with a cot and warm. Beds were really comfortable. Both - buffet breakfast and our dinner meals vere great and we experienced friendly staff. Happy to come back again.
