Prime Location!!

Aurora on George, Dunedin's newest 4 Star Plus motel is situated in the middle of the golden mile of accommodation. And Aurora is certainly golden as it’s less than a mile from most places - even the Octagon. Close to the Forsyth Barr Stadium, three blocks walk to town for dining, shopping, work or to socialise. Just three blocks to the hospital in one direction, three blocks to the beautiful Botanic Gardens in the other and a stones throw from Otago University and Polytechnic.

But it gets better... you really don't have to travel far. A restaurant and cafe literally on site and a dairy across the road. View location map


The sumptuous Thai restaurant Buddha Stix is part of the wider complex and sits on George Street beside the motel reception area. Walk literally “metres” along George Street from our reception door to enjoy great food and a great atmosphere.

Chargeback facilities are available at a number of Dunedin restaurants, please ask us for more information about these.


Fancy a coffee, or a cooked breakfast, a sneaky treat or lunchtime meal? Then walk a few metres through the carpark to find the fantastic Oaken cafe on Great King Street. Let Linda, Sam and their team treat you with fabulous fare, fine coffee and in Linda's own words.. "Bowls of deliciousness!".

Chargeback to your suite is available.
