Dunedin is the second largest city in the South Island, New Zealand, and the main city of Otago Region. Dunedin was the largest city by territorial land area until overtaken by Auckland in November 2010.

The city's largest industry is tertiary education - the city is home to the University of Otago, New Zealand's first university (founded 1869).

People who travel to Dunedin are also drawn to it as a centre for ecotourism. The world's only mainland Royal Albatross colony and several penguin and seal colonies lie within the city boundaries on the Otago Peninsula.

Welcome to Dunedin and to warm, genuine hospitality, along with sunny accommodation and fabulous kiwi cuisine. Located in the heart of the city, Kingsgate Hotel Dunedin is ideal for business or leisure and one of the finest Dunedin hotels. Otago Museum is a 15 minute walk away, the beach 10 minutes drive and the Central Business District is on your doorstep.

When you require welcoming hotels in Dunedin, look no further than Millennium & Copthorne Hotels.
