The Qualmark four-star-rated hotel offers 76 hotel rooms to suit couples wanting a relaxing getaway, business travellers and families.

Our Superior Hotel Rooms also offer a patio or balcony facing the flowing lawns and landscaped gardens. Guests can enjoy complimentary car parking and dining at the popular McGavins Restaurant and Bar.
The property was established in 1978 on the former site of McGavin Brewery, one of Dunedin’s original and at one time, New Zealand’s largest breweries. The brewery which brewed its last beer in 1958 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 conference venue suitable for meetings and weddings of up to 50 people. In addition, the larger McGavin Room can host up to 100 people.
