All was fine. However the temp room clerk, blonde, was rude and very unprofessional. The perm employee, brunette, was fine.

On the Way to Queenstown
Dunedin is a big old city that is very busy with lots of traffic. The castle grounds were beautiful but the castle left a lot to be desired. Wanted to see the yellow-eyed penguins but the windy road, and late schedule for tours was a deterrent. Unfortunately it was very cold and wet when we were there and that does not help.

The hotel is located very conveniently. The room was very clean and roomy. We had 3 adults, 1 twin and a bedroom with a king. Staff was very helpful. We walked easily to all the sights.
