The company bidding to build a $100 million waterfront hotel in Dunedin has been given its answer, but what that answer is remains a secret.

The decision of the Dunedin City Council's hearings committee was presented to Betterways Advisory Ltd late yesterday.

Betterways director Steve Rodgers would not comment about the decision when contacted yesterday, and neither would council staff nor committee chairman Cr Colin Weatherall.

The decision will be unveiled during a two-part media conference this morning.

Mr Rodgers was studying the decision when contacted by the Otago Daily Times last night.

Pressed on whether the decision was a yes or a no, he would only say it was ''definitely one of those''.

''There will be a lot of happy people in Dunedin and there will be a lot of sad people in Dunedin.''

The decision will be published on this morning.
