The Brothers Boutique Hotel History
The Christian Brothers Order had been on the property at 295 Rattray street since 1876 and the current stately residence was built in the early 1920s in the area known as the "Vatican" district.
At one time the huge residence housed up to 13 Brothers. In March 2005 there were only four remaining.
The Christian Brothers for most of its history has been associated with education. In Dunedin it has been involved in Christian Brothers junior and High schools, St Paul's, St Edmund's and in recent times at Kavanagh College.
