Hilltop on High Street

Hilltop on High Street, Dunedin, New Zealand

This historic home was originally built in 1904, and now provides luxurious and elegant accommodation with superb panoramic views of the city and harbor. 

Throughout the building, traditional features such as ornate plaster ceilings, colored leadlight windows, a sweeping staircase and tiled fireplaces ensure the property retains its original ambience. However, each of the three guest suites is individually designed with contemporary furnishings and offers a selection of modern comforts such as tea- and coffee-making facilities, DVD player and heat pump/air-conditioning. The Salmond Suite and Lawson Suite both have en suite bathrooms; the Shaw Suite has a private bathroom just a few steps along the hallway. The stylish surroundings are complemented by landscaped gardens that provide sanctuary, privacy and relaxation.

Your hosts provide a sumptuous breakfast each morning, and will be delighted to provide details of the best art galleries, shopping and restaurants in the city.
