Hulmes Court Bed & Breakfast Review

Built in 1860 for one of the founders of the Otago Medical School, Hulmes Court maintains its scholarly ties by employing University of Otago students. The complex includes a 1907 house next door where hosts Norman & Zina Wood live with their family and resident cats Solstice and Jimmy. This bed-and-breakfast has a casual relaxed feel where children are welcomed. Set in a residential neighbourhood it’s a short walk to the center of town. The Victorian drawing room offers a large bright space for continental-style breakfast and all-day tea and coffee. Free wi-fi, laundry and off-street parking. Computer, photocopier, books, newspapers, DVD/videos available for guests.
