Wains Hotel Dunedin

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For the age of the building, it's not bad. It would be nice to be told of the parking fee when requesting for an overnight car parking. That's an unexpected charge. The breakfast was nice and simple. Recommended to all.

Close to town centre. Bus stop outside hotel door. Staff great.

Within short walking distance to city centre so it was very nice. However, the room was very small with little room for 2 ppl to move around. Also, the bed covers looked dirty. No hotel parking except for valet parking.

Room was quite small, but hotel at good location, about 5min walk to the city center.

Great location great staff. Great place to vacation stay

Has some old charm with working gated elevator.

The Interior and Exterior details were amazing. Upon check-in we were directed to the old style lift with manual sliding doors - what a trip.

It was located at an excellent location. We parked our car on the street because the hotel parking was NZD$20 per day. street parking is free from 6pm-9am and free on the weekend. We parked our car and walked around the city to sightsee. It was overall good.
