We really enjoyed our two-night stay with Robyn and Holly. The room was great--large and comfortable. The breakfasts were better than what we had had in restaurants. The location was convenient, too. We did have to climb up the hill to get back from the city, but because we walk a lot, that wasn't really an issue. Great place to... More

The Old World charm of the beautifully maintained historic house was matched by the welcoming friendliness of hosts Robyn and Holly. The house is immaculate with attention to detail both practically and aesthetically. Robyn and Holly live discreetly upstairs so with our three couples we had the private use of the downstairs area including kitchen and beautiful fully glassed conservatory... More

We enjoyed our one night stay after going to Doubtful Sound. The home is old but beautifully maintained. Our bedroom was like a palace. The hosts were just attentive enough. Breakfast was enough to feed a small army. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Very clean, extremely comfortable, outstanding breakfasts, a beautiful sunny atrium, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful hosts. Our luggage was delayed and Ash went out of his way to help us. We enjoyed our conversations in the morning and learned a lot about New Zealand in general. With all the choices Dunedin has to offer, I would stay at Deacon's Court... More

From the moment we walked through the door my husband and I felt at home. Deacons Court is a beautiful old building and the bedroom we had, which was located at the front, had a view across Dunedin looking towards the Otago Peninsula. I loved the breakfast, reading room and chatting to Ash in the morning whilst cooking our breakfasts.... More

We stayed for 5 nights at the Deacons Court in January 2011 (this review is looong overdue). We found the room to be suprisingly large and comfortable for 3 (2 adults and a child) people. We had an excellent view from the bay window. Full breakfast was nice and served in the nicely appointed conservatory. Our host Ash was very... More

A lovely stay of two nights - Ash & Kris were welcoming & so easy going. We loved the house, it was beautiful & very very charming.

Deacons Court was the first B&B we stayed in during our travels around NZ and it set a very high benchmark for all others to live up to! The house is beautiful, the rooms are large and airy and the hosts, Ash and Kris, were fantastic. Ash's cooked breakfasts were amazing :-)

“Two of the rooms have ensuites, the large King sized room, although uses the bathroom across the Hall (only shares with a room with 2 singles, but our daughter stayed in that one) has the advantage of opening onto the conservatory, so if you are the only ones staying it is very lavish.”
