The DHL New Zealand Lions Series rolls into Dunedin. It's great to see the colour of fans in town. The red, the kilts, the Lions headgear. Passionate fans touring here and we say a huge welcome. New Zealand fans too are flocking to games and the tour is building interest well. All the best, and enjoy your time in Dunedin

This flag acknowledging our Certificate of Excellence that arrived this week from TripAdvisor is amazing.
Sandy and I have tried to create a B & B that delivers on southern hospitality.
Our gracious old villa with its stunning guests lounge, the warm welcome and the beautiful breakfasts are commented on favourably by so many.
The quiet location, so close to the centre of town, great restaurants, and the unique peninsula is appreciated.
Dunedin has so much to see that it takes time and planning.
The high standards of cleaning and running the business we receive from Qualmark New Zealand is pleasing, but the feedback from guests daily is just brilliant. The Excellence award this flag displays is awesome. Thank you guests. We really do get the best guests.

The mural artwork on buildings around Dunedin is brilliant. What a stunning improvement and colourful vibe on so many buildings. The Vogel Street area is continuing to impress, the southern central area of Dunedin is changing.
Dunedin has a strong history of art, so this art work and the Dunedin Street Art Trail is no surprise for locals and visitors.

Olveston, a stately, historic Dunedin home has been awarded the title of New Zealandâ€™s top landmark. Wow! Great news!
Olveston sits in the town belt, just above the town centre. Priceless artwork from around the world, interesting collections and artefacts fill each room making the tours a highlight of any stay in Dunedin. Many of the treasures are from East Asia, particularly Japan. Tour guides are so informative and add to the experience of visiting a house that is presented beautifully, transforming you into a bygone era.
The cost of only $18.50 for an adult is so reasonable. Put it on your itinerary.

It was a huge honour to receive the TripAdvisor 2014 Travellers' Choice Award. It has been such a brilliant year and Sandy and I have put all our efforts into making our guests stay the best we can. We have reviewed everything we do, refined our practices and extended the extra for guests. On our holiday last year we were charged for internet, for laundry, for spa pool use, for minibar, and infact it was a continual charging machine. This reinforced our desire to not charge for extras that are just part of our everyday hospitality.
So I guess we owe thanks to the "service" we received, or didn't receive, on holiday.
We continue to enjoy sharing our home and city, and welcome guests as that - guests.
Throughout the year we have loved reading and listening to feedback from people who have stayed. We always read and listen carefully.
This award from TripAdvisor, Travellers' Choice 2014 is a special one as it's from guests.
Thank you. Thanks to those who have returned and we look forward to welcoming you again.
Sandy was trying hard to hold back a huge smile in this photo.
