Distinction Hotel, Dunedin

Star-Rating-4-5   Official rating
Star-Rating-4   Distant Journeys rating

Dunedin is New Zealand’s oldest city and home to some of the Southern Hemisphere’s most spectacular heritage architecture. An interesting fact about this lovely hotel which you’ll stay in while you’re visiting Dunedin is that in the 1930s, it was formerly the Chief Post Office. Today though, it is one of Dunedin’s premier luxury hotels.

The Distinction Hotel is located in the vibrant Exchange Area in the heart of Dunedin. Nearby attractions include Larnach Castle with its award-winning gardens and unique dining experiences. If you’re keen to experience the wildlife and natural beauty of your surroundings, the Otago Peninsular is the home of the world’s only mainland breeding site of albatross and the blue penguin (the world’s smallest penguin). Maybe the award-wining interactive Speight’s Brewery tour is more to your taste? Alternatively, you could hop on the local railway to witness the beauty of Taieri Gorge from the comfort of your window seat.
