We had a three night stay at the Cardrona Hotel. The accommodation was excellent, comfortable bed and great water pressure for the shower. We had french doors out to the grassed courtyard, perfect to enjoy the early morning sun for a walk around the gardens when no one is around. The grounds were looking particularly lovely. Spring had sprung with new growth everywhere, mowed grass and with neat edges. A fabulous touch were the glass/shade houses scattered about which created great nooks to shade from the all day sun and created a little bit of privacy, despite being glass houses. The outdoor fire is always a winner here, whatever time of the year. Being in Covid times we had to have table service inside or out, which was prompt and efficient without being OTT. When the sun sets over the yard retreating to the inside fire is positively awesome. Highly recommend this happy place.…
We stayed here for one night and it exceeded expectations. The rooms were warm, clean and well equipped and the staff were very friendly. We sat outside in the beautiful gardens to have a drink in the late afternoon. The grounds are very well maintained and there was plenty of seating. We had both dinner and breakfast here and both were delicious and did not disappoint. The pub is just awesome with a great ambience. The roaring fires made it so cosy. Highly recommend.
Fabulous hotel/restaurant awesome ambiance. Food selection is good and generous. I had southern fried chicken and it was succulent. One gripe- order taken at table and before my meal had arrived or before I could order a drink etc the waitress came over and wanted me to pay. WTF is up with that, so annoyed it left bad taste.very rude.
Outstanding! Great service! We booked dinner for my Partners birthday, just as lockdown was announced and despite the team being snowed under with guests and diners, Elaine remembered us and made sure we were looked after. We had Ribeeye steak and the Beef Wellington - 5*. Seriously delicious! We were attended to by 3 very professional and friendly waiters. The bar staff were great too. We hope to stay there as guests someday! Great work Team! We'll be back!
I stayed at Cardrona hotel for 4 days. I have visited the restaurant in the summer before and always wanted to stay a winter. It was just a perfect place to explore ski fields around Wanaka. The rooms are simple but have character, the beds are super comfortable and the staff are lovely. There is an outdoor hot tup where you can take a drink to and relax your legs after a day on the slopes. It is definitely the place to be for Apres drinks and snacks. I was a bit worried that it would be a noisy location to get some rest but it quietens after 9 pm. I would recommend the rooms on the higher level that said I don't think you can really go wrong in this quaint setting.
