Title says it all, really. Venison fillet on kumera mash with beetroot and shallots was to die for, as was the chocolate brownie. Beds very comfortable too, rooms quaint and spotless. Excellent overnight stay.

Visited the famous Cardrona Hotel for lunch. Such an iconic building with amazing surroundings. Enjoyed a hearty lunch on an icy cold day. Service was great and so was the food. Definitely recommend visiting and taking some pictures.

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.
