Built from 1898 and opened in 1900, Dunstan House is an iconic local historic building situated in the heritage Precinct on the main street of Clyde. It's grand entrance welcomes travellers exploring the regions historic goldfields; discovering the fine wines of Central Otago, or simply looking for a luxurious getaway. Offering boutique accommodation, this heritage hotel features the original elegant kauri wooden staircase which links the living areas and accommodation. A large colonial veranda overlooks the main street of Clyde offering an elevated sunny spot for guests to soak in the atmosphere. Guests find each of our rooms individually decorated, reflecting that Victorian era, while mixing that elegant turn-of-the-century style with modern conveniences and comfort. Eight of the eleven rooms available have had full ensuites fitted, (with some including the original deep baths) while maintaining the historic feel and the same attention to detail and dedication to comfort.
