Peter and Morag Firns, your hosts at 538 Great King Motel


Peter and Morag Firns

We are Pete and Morag Firns, your hosts at 538 Great King Motel. Dunedinites by choice, we look forward to welcoming visitors to this wonderful city.
Apart from a couple of stints overseas, Dunedin has been home to Morag since secondary school days. Pete, originally from Perth Australia, first came to Dunedin in his early 20's, having met Morag while she was on a working holiday in Australia.
We crossed the ditch in 1999 to live in Perth. But Dunedin has always been home to Morag, and Pete's fondness for Dunedin never waned. So we returned late in 2016 to take up this opportunity at 538 Great King Motel.
We are now very proud to offer quality accommodation in this funky motel in the heart of the Dunedin accommodation strip. Just 200 metres from the main entrance to the University of Otago and a short walk from the city centre, 538 Great King is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.
Our aim is to deliver an accommodation experience that you will wish to repeat! We are here to help make your stay in Dunedin enjoyable and comfortable. We want to complement everything else Dunedin has to offer with service that will be memorable for all the right reasons.
