Heritage Hotels welcomes historic Dunedin property to the group

Heritage Hotels has welcomed the Heritage Dunedin Leisure Lodge to its portfolio.

Set in two acres of park-like grounds, the hotel has 76 hotel rooms, McGavins Restaurant and Bar and two conference facilities, the McGavin Room and the Oast House.

The design of the hotel by award-winning architects Warren and Mahoney utilises the former site of the McGavin Brewery which brewed its last beer in 1958. To honour the property’s heritage, the stone Oast House (a former malting kiln) has been redeveloped as a conference venue for meetings.

“We are delighted to welcome this well respected hotel to our group,” said Graham Yan, CEO of Heritage Hotel Management Ltd.

“Dunedin is a city we have wanted to be in strategically for some time. It has been worth the wait.”

Heritage Dunedin Leisure Lodge GM Leigh Stock said he looked forward to working with the group. “Heritage Hotels as a hotel group unique to New Zealand, shares our passion for Kiwi hospitality and promoting this great region,” he said.
