My room was on the eighth floor looking over the town to the hills .The room was large,had underfloor heating and in the bathroom there was a washing machine and a tumble dryer both complimentary. i.e. no charge to use them.My room was close to the lift but I never ever heard it.I could live here quite comfortably.
Favourite hotel in Dunedin
on Jan 17, 2020
This hotel is by far the best in Dunedin, I love it, stay there a couple of days a month. The rooms are big, I love the washing machine and dryer in each room. Extremely friendly staff.
Could do with a better room service menu.
Lovely start to a NZ holiday
on Jan 12, 2020
We spent two nights here to start our holiday. Check in was efficient, and we had a room on the 8th floor with microwave, fridge, and washer/dryer. The room was quite large and had an unobstructed view. From the hotel’s location, views will not be great - there are a lot of warehouses and Dunedin is planning a harbor front renovation... but still any view is nice!
We found the bed to be comfortable. The bathroom generally had a good setup, although the shower door had a bit of leaking that soaked our bathmat. Light fixtures all worked fine.
The location is very good, a short walk to downtown and new restaurants in the warehouse district.
I’d stay there again!
A lovely addition to Dunedin's hotel scene
on Jan 7, 2020
Extremely friendly greeting and reception when we arrived at the hotel, now occupying a building which has significant meaning to us. Dunedin's Distinction Hotel has been extremely well designed/constructed in what used to be Dunedin's architecturally beautiful old Post Office. The Post Office was built by my husband's first wife's husband. It is truly worth a visit. We booked a studio - well-appointed kitchen and laundry facilities; a very long bench for the TV, desk, putting stuff on; ample luggage storage area and very very tastefully furnished. An extremely comfortable room. However, there are two faults - one significant, and one easily fixable. A fantastic shower (wet room style, long/large, but completely partitioned off from the rest of the bathroom), with both a rainhead and conventional showerhead, and hi tech push button controls for the showers and temperature, but the highly polished marble tile floor is SOOO slippery. After I almost slipped three times, I urged my husband to wait until we boarded our ship in a few hours - which he happily agreed to, having broken his hip 6 months ago. Clearly, something needs to be done to make the shower floors safe. Also, a minor problem, but inconvenient - there was no place to put shampoo or soap because the small shelf attached to the shower stem was missing. Apart from all that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Large room, good location and good facilities

Hotel does not have any real character but we had a large suite, with kitchen facilities, washing machine and drier. Great when travelling for a month. Did not use any other hotel facilities but good location with easy parking.
