My girlfriend and I stopped at the Cardrona Hotel for a drink and some food before doing horse trekking in the region. The Hotel has a great ambience, staff were lovely and the drinks and food were reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

Not many hotel/pubs like this left. Always a pleasure to come back for another visit. Staff, ambience, service and food are all excellent. Open fires inside and out, there’s always a buzz about the place!

This is an old pub, kept pretty much as authentic as possible. The atmosphere was fabulous and the food was amazing. We celebrated a birthday there and it couldn't have been better. Service was smooth, quick and professional.

Good morning. There are shuttles available but they must be booked beforehand as they do not stop here as a matter of course. The best people to contact are either Alpine Shuttles or Yello out of Wanaka.
