        The only thing that I was disappointed with was the non-explanation of the keys to some green door somewhere that let you in when doors locked. A little more insight for guests so they are not standing at a locked door and ringing the bell in the cold..

        Noisy Saturday night. Bathroom not that clean, dark hair in bath, stuck to rubber mat etc

        Location.

        The Hotel has seen better days, needs a bit of a refurb. Unfortunetely, although the hotel was large guests seemed to be positioned above what was a loud bar which had some sort of dance music going on until late. (midnight) Worst feature the hotel makes a charge for using credit card for payment. This is the first time we hav eencountered this in travelling over several months over 3 continents.

        Convenience as I had wanted to stay in Dunedin that weekend. Nice friendly welcome which is always a good start to any short trip.

        I felt it a shame that such a lovely building has lost so much of its luster and it facade is very much in need of a face lift. The colours are wrong and the fraying carpet panels along the stairs are very unbecoming. I should imagine the cost of such improvements may not be financially variable? It is a pity though as the hotel has so much to offer. Also the views out back are awful. Sorry

        I liked the location of the Brydone - very handy to the historical quarter in Oamaru. Close, also to several bars, cafes + restuarants. I was pleased with the standard of the accomodation - it was better than I expected as I knew it was an old hotel but the bathroom facilities were modern + the rooms comfortable. There was plenty of parking which is always a bonus. Even though it is located on the main street of Oamaru + the windows are not doubleglazed, the room was surprisingly quiet + we stayed Friday + Saturday night

        this is a good central place to stay, the rooms are getting tired and really need an upgrade and the walls need sound proffing, but not too bad

        The location to the city.

        It was very dated in its look, and the beds were far too soft.

      • Couple

        Well informed on arrival and left to do as we set out. The bed was comfortable and bathroom well laid out

        The reverberation noise of the building let the relaxation down. As a 4-5 star facility I would have expected better than instant coffee in the rooms.

      • Group of friends

        Efficient staff and very good value for money.

        Dated in many aspects.

        It had character, I loved my room. The staff, and the food were excellant. I hadia lovely time. However the bottom sheet kept moving on the bed, it just didnt seem big enough, and if that is all I have to say it was all good.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        The room decor was a little "tired" but certainly the location was perfect and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It was a good hub to have a look around Oamaru.
