  • The garden room was nicely appointed and spacious with a really comfortable bed. Breakfast things were ready to help ourselves to suit our early starts. The cheerful smile from the owner always made up for the lack of english. Bathroom a little bit shabby, but everything was working as it should. Would certainly stay again. Thanks, bob and barbara. 5

  • The room was clean but there was no lock on the door. The tv was not working and must never have worked as there was no aerial connection. The bathrooms were very outdated and worn, and had to be shared with the owners and tenants, so were cluttered with everyone else's shampoos and toothbrushes. One shower leaked into the toilet and the shower door fell apart completely. The owners were friendly but could not speak a word of english, so had to ring their son repeatedly to translate for us. The power sockets in the room did not work so we had to use an extension from the hallway. We wont be staying there again. 1

  • This is the first time my family and i visited dunedin. I feel very grateful to check in at once upon a time. To me this place is really more than just a lodge to stay. You will be spoiled with very clean room, cosy bathroom and high speed internet wi-fi. Most important part, the interior of the house was built with edinburgh style but still has some artistic chinese xi'an historic atmosphere which makes us treated like a very special guests. Staying at this place, we will definitely feel at home with a warmth and great hospitality service. You will also be surprised with two breakfast options: a special hand-made chinese style breakfast or you may choose to have a western breakfast. My family and i would rank this place with 5 stars recommendation. We will for sure spread the good words about once upon a time to our colleagues so that they can book this place when they visit dunedin :). 5

  • Extraordinarily friendly hosts who can not speak english but it is not a problem at all because they showed us everything around using and easily understandable body language. Our room was very spacious and clean set up elegantly and there was a king size bed beautifully prepared. The bathroom was really nice and tidy and breakfast was included and even fried eggs and dumpling were available beside continental breakfast including fruit salad made of fresh fruits. We were treated there with warmth and highest possible friendliness. Upon leaving we have received a lovely little chinese style present. We forgot a jacket in the wardrobe and their son called us that we are welcome to pick it up. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone. We enjoyed our stay and we would go back happily anytime. Aniko & charlie. 5
