OK to spend a night in transit. Friendly owner. Only 2 rooms with private bathroom. Plenty of common space to have your dinner, but bring your own food and drinks (There is no supermarket there; buy your food well in advance).

My wife and I stayed there last Sat night. We were given a double room with attached toilet and shower. The hosts were pleasant and provided a heater . The room was clean and everything good you could expect of a country pub. At $100.00 I thought a bit pricey but still met all expectations .

Our lunch pies were great, and good value. Hope the owners will make more of the art deco building style, which needn't cost a lot to carry through. It COULD be quaint, but ain't yet, especially if dining in the sun on the veranda. No bike racks yet, which is sign they haven't cottoned on to potential customers.

However this hotel has been around since 1876, there are historic photographs of the hotel hung on the walls. There are tables inside and outside where you can eat. The food...

If you want to stay a short distance away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Queenstown then this is the place! This quiet little town boasts an historic hotel that offers comfortable, clean and unique accommodation and a restaurant/cafe with food that melts in your mouth. The venison pies are the best we have ever tasted and we have...
