Dunedin Leisure Lodge Purchased by Distinction Hotels Group

Distinction Hotels is delighted to announce the latest addition to its New Zealand owned and operated hotel group – Dunedin Leisure Lodge. 

Distinction Hotels have purchased the Dunedin hotel from the Skyline Enterprises Group and will take over operations as of 29 July 2021. Currently operating under the Heritage brand, the property will be re-named Dunedin Leisure Lodge – A Distinction Hotel.

Set on two acres of park-like grounds, the 76-room property is Dunedin’s only garden hotel and located on Duke Street, close to the CBD and within walking distance to the Botanic Gardens, University of Otago and Forsyth Barr Stadium. The Qualmark four-star-rated hotel offers Sky TV, free unlimited WiFi and complimentary car parking. Guests can enjoy dining at the popular McGavin’s 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.

With its latest acquisition, the Distinction Hotels Group now has a collection of 15 hotels in locations throughout New Zealand, including the luxury Distinction Dunedin Hotel which opened its doors on Liverpool St in Dunedin’s vibrant Warehouse Precinct in 2015. Chief Executive Duncan Fletcher said “We’re thrilled to expand our presence with a second Distinction hotel in the Dunedin market. We look forward to delivering Distinction’s signature heartfelt hospitality to even more guests and locals who visit this iconic and well-regarded North Dunedin property”.
