Distinction Hotel Group has plans for the 1930s-style, seven story Chief Post Office in Dunedin.
Geoffrey Thomson, Kiwi born, Invercargill based owner of the Distinction Group, has recently purchased the Historic Post Office building on Princess Street in Dunedin.
Currently owned and operated in the Distinction portfolio is:
North Island: Distinction Rotorua, Hotel & Conference Centre
South Island: Distinction Te Anau, Hotel & Villas and Distinction Luxmore, Lake Te Anau, and Distinction
Queenstown, Nugget Point Boutique Hotel & Spa.
Mr Thomson will be turning the concrete shell into a 4.5 plus hotel with 180 rooms and suites, restaurants, bars, conference facilities, a business centre, gym, lap pool all with the latest features and technology. He has always been inspired with the architectural design of this building and plans to flow that through the entire hotel. Dunedin’s finest hotel will be achieved through this project, with a Grand Opening in Late 2011.
Not only will this project bring more employment opportunities to the region, from trades’ people to employees working within the hotel, it is also investing in Dunedin’s tourism. Mr Thomson sees a bright future for all, with large growth into the region.
