Stopped here for a coffee and was surprised. The best coffee we had whilst in New Zealand. If you are travelling from Queenstown to Franz Josef do not hesitate to stop here. All we had was a coffee but the food looked and smelled delicious.

This Hotel is extremely quirky with a real Gold Rush feel. Its history helps give a real charm and the property and grounds are filled with period features and buildings, I particularly liked the Tesla charger disguised as an ancient petrol pump. There is no...More

We loved everything about the place. The staff were friendly, the rooms were comfortable and tastefully decorated, and the beer garden was one of our favourites so far. Loved the historic feel of such a beautiful old hotel. Would definitely come back!

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.
