Gorgeous olde worlde building with decor to match. Perfect place to stop for coffee a drink or food on a damp and chilly day. The fire adds atmosphere as well as warmth and a couple were at the piano during our short visit.

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.
