20 Unit Motel - George St Dunedin

Dunedin City
Reference: OS479
Motel / Motor Lodge
Business Lease $1,150,000

This is a very well-known and visible motel that is situated close to the hospital, University of Otago and city centre. Four-star complex where the operator can offer a good mix of room types for the sole traveller through to large groups.

Spacious rooms with all modern conveniences. The property is popular with both corporate and domestic market segments and caters well for larger groups. Guests can leave their cars safely parked off the street and stroll to the city for an evening meal, as this is only a short walk.

Land and buildings would be available if looking for a freehold going concern.

Dunedin enjoys enviable occupancy levels and has done for some time. This is due to the many events held in the city, and the requirement for visiting relatives due to the hospital, Otago University and in general, the amount of corporate business transacted on a daily basis. This makes accommodation businesses desirable in this location.

Dunedin has always been a well performing motel market, however now with the construction of the new Dunedin Hospital to commence, this should provide additional stimulus with the influx of workers and associated trades, estimated to be expected for up to 8 years. KiwiRail with its workshop redevelopment is the result of significant Government funding to build a wagon assembly facility and replace the mechanical workshop.

A three-bedroom spacious owners residence situated at the back of the complex with an attached reception. Private area with a tiled patio overlooking a small lawn and workshop/storage shed.

Derek Johnson

Derek joined Coffeys in April 2021. He decided to step up to the plate and help other moteliers & accommodation business operators buy or sell their properties after the challenging year of COVID 19. 

Derek brings with him over 18 years’ experience in the hospitality and tourism industry. Managing and owning businesses has been particularly important to him. He owned and operated a large rural hotel for 10 years prior to leasing a successful & highly profitable 19 unit motel in Wanaka (pre-Covid) with his wife Crystal. They have done extensive work on upgrading & modernising the interiors. Also, a lot of effort has gone into landscaping & improving/upgrading outdoor facilities such as the playground. He is very fond of his roses found throughout the property.

His role as the local publican gave him a variety of experiences with the public and within the community, such as sponsorship for all the main local sports teams. Derek loves to chat to people.

SO YES. Derek knows how to market your property and importantly, he also understands how you run your business. Let him help you get the result that you want. Derek says he chose to come to Coffeys as he believes in the brand and their ethics. 

Travelling regularly from Wanaka to Dunedin to see his daughter, filling his time in there with projects around the holiday home – although he is not too sure when the ‘holiday’ part starts. His interests are hiking and sports – any kind! Rugby and cricket (which he loved to play), being his favourites. Family time is most important to him.
