About Highland House
Highland House was built in 1911 as three-terrace dwellings. This distinctive building now has been renovated as a self-contained boutique hotel which offers the best of all conveniences, along with the bygone charm of Dunedin’s Scottish heritage. The hotel is located on George Street, a traditional “University” street close to the campuses, of Dunedin, 'The Edinburgh of the Southern Hemisphere '.
Highland House is perfect for a weekend break, watching a sports event or concert, a business stop over, family gathering, or for parents visiting their children in the universities or schools. We are near the entrance to the longest highway of New Zealand, SH1, it is very easy to drive to many places including Dunedin Airport, Long Beach Sea Cave or Warrington Recreation Reserve. The public transport is available, or even on foot, to visit University of Otago, Dunedin Hospital. The St Clair Beach can be reached from the bus stop across the street of the house.
Only 2km from Dunedin City Centre and near theme parks, Highland House is in an area with beautiful sceneries, and good shopping or meals. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Dunedin Botanic Garden, just 5-minute walk from us, and Woodhaugh Gardens, rightly beside us. These two gardens provide wonderful backdrops for wedding or other photography. To understand New Zealand culture and history, Otago Museum and Toitu Otago Settlers Museum are the highlights.
