SCENIC HOTELS SUITES RESORTS LOGO 200The Scenic Hotel Southern Cross will once again be a hive of activity as the event headquarters for this year’s Otago Rally, from May 8 to 10.

The announcement comes with confirmation that Scenic Hotels, Suites and Resorts will again be the event’s accommodation partner.

Based in the heart of Dunedin, and just a few hundred metres from the Octagon, the Scenic Hotel Southern Cross has been the official event headquarters for many years.

The popular hotel provides quality accommodation for the rally’s competitors, officials and visitors to the city, as well as ample space for the rally’s command and media centre, and for the pre-event dinner.

The rally will start outside the hotel on Saturday morning (May 9).

By mentioning the Otago Rally when you make your accommodation booking, you’ll receive a discounted room rate of just $155 per night, plus GST.

“The Scenic Hotel Southern Cross is the ideal location for competitors and spectators alike,” Otago Rally promotions manager, Roger Oakley, said.

“Scenic Hotels, Suites and Resorts have provided great support for the Otago Rally over the years, assisting us with all our headquarters facilities.

“We’re thrilled to be utilising their services again in 2015.”

The pre-event dinner will be held at the hotel on the Thursday evening (May 7), with a two-course meal at just $60 per head. The night will include the chance to meet many of the event’s leading drivers, both from New Zealand and overseas.
