Amazing lunch, great outdoor area, and atmosphere, friendly staff! Definitely worth a stop on the way through and only a 45 minute drive from Queenstown. We will be back! Highly recommend the frickles!
This lovely little Hotel is just perfect in every way. Such a super chill place to stay. Rooms are lovely and cozy . Restaurant is superb! We had dinner and breakfast both of which the food was amazing! Highly recommended !
Family of 8 plus one when for lunch. Loved the chilled atmosphere and the food was great. Big meals, every one left stuffed. Fire inside and out was really nice in the colder weather. Will plan to come back and stay sometime as well.
Our South Island "roadie" was to include a night in Wanaka but fortunately I won the "discussion" and got to choose our accommodation. We have passed the Cardrona Hotel before and stopped for a drink or snack whilst on motorcycle tours. A great historic hotel that was busy. Despite this we had excellent service from the barman from Tokoroa and we booked for dinner. A stunning meal with similar service before finishing our bottle of wine on the leather couch watching the open fire. An outdoor hot tub was enjoyed before retiring to our room. We definitely recommend the Captains room (22) which is cosy and stylish. The grounds are lovely with an outside roaring fire and this place has a great atmosphere.
We had planned to spend a 50th birthday here with the family so had a room for the night so we could enjoy a few drinks without having to drive. Sadly Covid changed that plan but we kept our room. The room was a small queen so it wasn’t a room I’d spend a lot of time in but it was comfy with a retro tv, good linen, toiletries and own bathroom. I was worried about it being noisy at night but it was warm, quiet and like staying in a country home. Staying over you get to see a different side of the place to just the usual beer at the pub. It is beautiful at night and in the morning the birds sing. Food is outstanding! Had the best beef Wellington of my life there. Service amazing, comfy stay, perfect stopover for us
