Heritage Hotels are delighted to announce a new addition to the group. The Heritage Dunedin Leisure Lodge will officially join the Heritage Hotel Group effective from 1 May 2019.

Heritage Dunedin Leisure Lodge is in Duke Street, close to the CBD and in walking distance to the University of Otago, the Forsyth Barr Stadium and Botanic Gardens.

Set in two acres of park-like grounds, the hotel has 76 hotel rooms, the popular McGavins Restaurant and Bar and two versatile conference facilities on site - the McGavin Room and the historic Oast House. The hotel is Qualmark four-star-rated and also offers free car parking, Sky TV and Wi-Fi.

The property which opened in 1978 was designed by award-winning southern architects, Warren and Mahoney, and is on the former site of the McGavin Brewery which brewed its last beer in 1958.

The brewery was re-located to the Speights Brewery in 1971, however to honour the rich history of the site, the stone Oast House (a former malting kiln) was redeveloped as a popular conference venue suitable for corporate meetings and weddings.
