    Just dropped in to this magestic building, oozing charm and authenticity. We were surprised the place was packed, but we did manage to find a table where we both enjoyed a delicious and well priced meal. We would definitely recommend this pub.

    The Empire Hotel is well worth a visit to see its wonderful Federation architecture, including magnificent carved Blackwood staircase. Food, service and pricing is reasonable. As we visited at the same time as 70 (unannounced) and Queenstown has few alternatives, bookings are a great idea.
