Wotif works well

We were in Dunedin last night for a 21st birthday party and hadn’t got round to booking anywhere to stay until Friday so used wotif.

That found us a room at the four star Dunedin City Hotel for $129.

It’s the fourth time we’ve got a Wotif deal there and each time we’ve been impressed. The rooms are spacious and clean, beds comfortable, the shower has a rose on a flexible hose, they have Les Floralies Earths Organics toiletries and the windows open.

We tend to make most of our decisions to travel at the last minute so use Wotif often. The only time we’ve had a problem was due to the manner of the receptionist and not Wotif.

Every other time we’ve had the same service we’d expect if we booked directly with the hotel, but at a much lower price.

That includes a Wotif Secret Deal  which doesn’t reveal the name of the hotel until you’ve paid. We’ve done that three times and got five star accommodation in the centre of Auckland twice and four star in Wellington once, for a fraction of the normal rate.

You know the general area you’ll be in so if it doesn’t matter too much exactly where you stay it’s worth the gamble.

  1. I use Wotif Too and Rates To Go.
    There can be a variance.
    Sometimes, if you read the details closely, and compare with other entries, you can work out where the secret hotel is.
    I have found it is usually either the Holiday Inn or a Mercure.

    I use it (Wotif) once or twice a year – usually with no problems. It is helpful to go back to a hotel you have used previously if it is ok or if you have a good idea of the area you want to stay in.

    So far have never had a problem at check in.
