Description provided by property
Welcome to Manor House Backpackers. We invite you to stay and share with us the character and class of our two beautiful Historic Stately Homes.
Manor House 1920 and the adjacent Tonkinson House 1924 are nestled amongst trees with the surrounding flower gardens and lawn providing a peaceful and quiet haven. Nowhere else can you 'awake to birds, not traffic' and still be only minutes walk from Dunedin Central Citys' focal point, The Octagon.
Lounge in the garden whilst using the FREE Wi-Fi and your friends make you food on the BBQ or meet new and friendly people in the sociable kitchen area, take time out and watch some DVD's or have a game of table tennis.
For the past twenty years our many international guests have found out that in Dunedin it is possible to 'Stay in style, leave with a smile'. Look forward to meeting you soon!
