A heritage-listed building in Dunedin has been given the go-ahead to be converted into a 24-room hotel.

The 1909 building is within the lower Stuart Street heritage precinct. The hotel, described in the consent application as a 'high tech, boutique' development, will be consist of 11 rooms on the first floor and 13 on the second.
