Charming bed and breakfast

Pros: Wonderful renovation while keeping charm of an antique home, comfortable room with everything upgraded.
Location: Location is an easy 15 minute drive to Dunedin city center-- not sure about public transportation as we had our own car. Dunedin is a delightful city.
An old home outside the center of Dunedin was meticulously renovated and improved and was a very comfortable place to stay. Everything was in perfect order. The owners were delightful, very hospitable and helpful.
