We, Chris and Adrienne, Welcome You To

Aurora on George

Aurora on George, in the best southern New Zealand city of Dunedin, is a modern 4 Star Plus, Silver Enviro Award, and Qualmark rated motel. Step into our beautiful motel with its centrepiece garden and enjoy contemporary yet minimalist design features, understated elegance, affordable luxury, comfort, cleanliness, service, and attention to detail.  We care. We care for one another, and we care for our planet. We look to sustainability, adaptability and creativity.   Aurora is the name of the Roman goddess of sunrise whose tears turned into the morning dew.  This is a beautiful analogy at this difficult time globally. Aptly named, we do see aurora in our southern skies and have reflected this beautiful energy throughout, from our brand to the reception hero art work and the wonderful décor in the suites.

Aurora on George - all the facilities one might find in a hotel, without the large business feel.

Arrive, unpack, unwind, and relax – although there is plenty to see and do in our wonderful city – you really don’t need to. It’s all right here! Relax in the garden with a good book or beverage, and dine at Buddha Stix restaurant without having to leave the property. We have also made wonderful new friends with Char and Pam at The Good Earth Cafe and they would be only too happy to serve you breakfast, snacks or lunch. 

Got a gap in your day? Then ask about and book your own personal relaxing yin yoga session or fun HIIT workout with Adrienne. We can also organise a sensational massage with one of our therapists. Book these in advance to avoid disappointment.

Aurora on George is situated in the middle of what is know as "the golden mile of accommodation" on George Street, Dunedin.  Even better still, we are less that a 20 minute walk to the Octagon or Forsyth Barr Stadium, and just three short blocks walk for shopping and Dunedin hospital in one direction and the same distance to the beautiful Botanic Gardens in the other. The University of Otago is literally a stone's throw away.

We love that we provide our quests with urban chic that meets garden tranquility.
