Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great experience. Cosy, silent nights sleep after a top steak meal with a decent beer selection, all in front of the fireplace. Parking right out front, so overall a nice stopover between Queenstown and Invercargill.

After a long old 13hr shift myself and my colleagues stopped by the Lumsden Hotel for food as it was the only place open. It was busy and we ordered food immediately. 55 starving minutes later we asked what the eta on the food was. There was a cranky couple stood next to us at the bar absolutely furious that they had been waiting 1.5hrs for their food for a party of 10 and it still hadn’t arrived. They had already decided to leave, hungry. With little to no sympathy from the staff we also got a refund and headed home where a jar of peanut butter and some riveted anxiously waited for us. Will not be returning.

We had booked 2 rooms both en-suite. At the time of booking there was no mention of an event for this particular night and we were not told about it, We had to find someone when we arrived and were told that our keys were in the rooms so were unlocked. The rooms were clean but untidy with appliances on the main drawer units. There were complimentary tea and coffee crammed into a small jar. Considering the size of the rooms and the use of microwave, toaster and kettle it seemed strange that we couldn’t open a window and keep it open for ventilation. We discovered very quickly that there was live music as the room vibrated with every drum beat. We had dinner at the hotel and the food was good, the band was good and seemed to finish about 9.30 which was great as we had an early start the next day unfortunately the band started up again and continued until 3am !! Overall it was a warm uncomfortable night without much sleep. We stayed in a few hotels during our road trip and this one was one of the most expensive and least enjoyable.

We booked the en-suite room 9 which was comfortable and mostly clean. We had our own bath and shower with a view of the free campers across the road in the town park with the Railway cars. We were able to park our bikes in back of the pub and check in early which was nice. Had a delicious pizza in the hotel for dinner, with hand made dough and sauce. Service was good here, if somewhat disjointed. The only issue we had was noise from the trucks on the road at night as the hotel is right near a corner of two main highways. We would not want to stay on the nights the pub had events or bands, as it would be noisier, but we certainly found the hotel met our requirements and was a good stop over on the Around the Mountains Cycle Trail.

As this is one of the oldest Hotels around built in 1875 we thought we'd book in. The building is old but comfortable and clean with shared bathrooms. The staff are friendly and helpful. Plus looks like they do live bands sometimes and do get a few people for the meals. We stayed for a drink and I enjoyed my Beef Cheeks with mashed potato and salad. Had a walk around the town as Hotel on the Main Road. Found an outside laundromat which has recently just been built and noticed this is the town to stop at if freedom camping.

I have been fortunate enough to have eaten in a lot of high quality restaurants and the one at the Lumsden hotel, The Pot Stock and Barrel, compared fabulously. If you want a stop over or a location that gives you central access to Queenstown, Te Anau, fishing, hiking or relaxing in this town supported by fine dining or regular pub food... What a place. They even have music nights at the pub, which is an eclectic mix of professional musicians and talented visitors from the freedom camping across the road. .. Good Times and thoroughly recommend
