2.76km from Kaikorai Valley CollegeWe stayed in Room 5. The location is excellent and although parking wasn't included, we did not have any difficulties finding a place to park around the corner. This repurposed church offers a unique place to stay when in Dunedin. The bedrooms are a decent size. However, there were issues with the two bathrooms, specifically the showers. One shower was a full-body shower which would have been excellent if the shower pressure had been sufficient to make it work. It wasn't clear how to even turn the shower on and I needed to ask a member of staff to show me. To be fair, she was exceptionally friendly and helpful and I certainly cannot find fault with customer service! The bedrooms (and bathrooms) are downstairs. Upstairs is the lounge and the kitchen/dining area. Both are spacious and are decorated well. However, the design of the kitchen leaves something to be desired. The microwave is above the fridge and is far too high for anyone under 6 feet tall to use effectively. Similarly, the washer and dryer need to be updated. The washer is squeaky and very noisy. The dryer sits above the washer and, like the microwave, is far too high to be used effectively. This ridiculous height must have been noticed when the kitchen/utility area was being fitted because the dryer is upside down in order for the dial to be even remotely reachable. The dryer didn't work. Considering these issues, I do think this accommodation is a bit overpriced. Overall, I *would* recommend staying here because it is quite unique but the functionality of the kitchen is something to consider, particularly if you are under 6 feet tall. I don't know if the other apartments are similar but I would imagine they are.
