Best Western Acquires Four-star Motel in Dunedin, New Zealand

Best Western Australasia has acquired a new property in New Zealand - an 18-room, four-star luxury motel in beautiful Dunedin on the South Island.

This makes a total of eight Best Western properties in New Zealand.

The Best Western 555 on Bayview features quiet, executive studios, one-bedroom units with interconnecting rooms, all equipped with modern appointments, light cooking facilities, exquisite interior decorating and with the spectacular Otago beaches virtually on the doorstep.

Ideally located, the Best Western 555 on Bayview is less than five minutes drive from the Octagon - featuring Dunedin's buzzing bars, restaurants, shops and convention centre, and the famous Otago University.

Queen and King suites come with high-speed internet, desk and work area, cooking facilities and satellite TV.

A perfect base for the corporate executive or family holidays, the Best Western 555 on Bayview is only a short drive away from the Otago Pennisula with New Zealand's only castle, Lanarch's castle, and the Royal Albatross Colony at Taiaroa Head - the only mainland nesting colony of the world's largest seabird. Visit Penguin Place: a unique sanctuary of underground trenches allowing visitors to watch penguins go about their daily lives, undisturbed, or the delicious Cadbury World - the closest thing to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory. Meanwhile, Dad can put his feet up at the nearby Speight's Brewery Heritage Tour - one of the few gravity-fed breweries remaining in the world.

For more information or, to book accommodation at the Best Western 555 on Bayview, call 131 779 (from Australia), 0800 237 893 (from New Zealand) or log on to .
