215 Edinburgh Castle is a historical building which combines a Asian food restaurant, a bar with a hotel and a pokies gaming lounge. It is located at the junction of Newtons Road and Symonds Street, Edinburgh Terrace in Auckland. This area is about a 6 minute drive south from the SKYCITY casino so it’s close to the CBD area. Some local landmarks are Galbraith’s Alehouse, Dots Bar and Save Ferris Bar
The building is more than 150 years old so it’s worth the visit to see the building just for that fact.
According to the New Zealand Herald, there were more hotels on Symonds street a century ago, most of them shut down and this is the only hotel which survived. The lodge now focuses on providing backpackers and students affordable and comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price. It has a provision for picking up and dropping off customers who are using the lodge services.
