If you are looking for somewhere a little different Otira Stagecoach Hotel is right for you. My husband and I came looking for something off the beaten track, where we could experience something interesting and different. We truly enjoyed our stay exploring the quirky history, enjoying beers by the fire and learning to ride a penny farthing. So welcoming and...

We stayed here on our way over Arthur's Pass. It is very quirky and rather overdone crammed full of all sorts of dusty memorabilia. The rooms were clean but again rather claustrophobic and cluttered making them feel small. We had to share bathrooms but the guest sitting room was good with TV and coffee making facilities. The food was poor...

We went here on the way to arthurs pass. Loved the decor, theme and old school tavern vibe of the place. Was great to see all the interiors and decorative objects preserved from the past. However the food at the cafe was very average, we were disappointed by the white bait and the sandwiches

Stopped in to eat on the way over to hokitika, the server, who we later discovered to be the publican (as he would arrogantly let us know when we complained about the food quality) was untidy and spoke rudely. The food was was terrible. Not worth the stop!

Possibly the weirdest dining experience in NZ to date! Wait staff quite calmly announced that the soup took so long 'because it said on the packet that it should be simmered for 12 minutes'! At least it was edible when it arrived. My husbands soup which arrived 45 minutes later after 2 reminders had not been diluted much at all...

We just wanted a scone and a cuppa, wholesome but not fancy. Didnt get it. The worst cheese scone ever, and the tea was so weak it was awful. But the hotel is quirky and interesting. The log fire was lovely and the place was full of old relics that you could wander around. Probably the most amazing piece of...

The Otira Stagecoach Hotel is a one-in-a-lifetime find. Our tour group of 17adults stopped for coffee and a scone and were well taken care of by the staff. And besides fun things to eat, there are all kinds of "things" worth looking at, like a hand lawn mower attached to a bicycle. The one staff member was so friendly and...

We stopped for a quick cuppa and stayed a while. What an amazing collection of historic memorabilia and fun stuff. Staff were welcoming, but don't go if all you like is modern sparkling clean stuff. Old stage coaches to BW photos- brilliant

Great place to stop in for a coffee and a peruse of the amazing collection of memorabilia. We stoped in on a rainy day and sat in front of the beautiful open fire for a great morning tea. Definitely check out the toilets!!

You really need to visit this place if you are going past it. We did not stay there but we spent a lot of time looking through eclectic collection of memorabilia.There was everything from painted porcelain toilets to lots of stained glass. We did have lunch there. The food was okay but still this was so worth the stop
