We stayed 2 nights at the Cadrona Hotel and the atmosphere after each day of skiing was amazing, exactly what you want after a full day on the mountain. Great people with the same idea, good food, nice drinks, beautiful fires and loved our room! Such a romantic getaway for the two us and have decided it will now be an annual trip!!!

We were so glad we stayed here. Very convenient for the ski resort and such a special, historic place. The King size bed was super comfy and the bathroom spacious with a good shower. Staff were attentive and it’s a only few seconds walk for the bar, dinner and breakfast. Lovely wood fire in the restaurant but not too hot. We would highly recommend staying here and will do so ourselves next time as well.

We were so excited to stay at this iconic hotel - it was on my bucket list and it definitely delivered. The room was cosy and warm with everything you needed. Our room was a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of the pub but that suited us just fine. We enjoyed our drinks outside by the fire, the meal in the restaurant was really good including an exceptional venison dish and sticky date pudding to die for. Breakfast was simple but perfect. Everyone was friendly except one person at the bar and that was shame. Maybe she was having a bad day. Overall a wonderful stay and would recommend.

Stopped here for delicious lunch in the sunshine. Great outdoor space to enjoy, small kids playground (swings and giant connect 4 game). Loads of old memorabilia. Outdoor fire place for later in day- perfect for après with a mulled wine!

We stopped by on our way to Wanaka for the typical insta pic. But then decided to stay for lunch & drinks. We ordered the soup of the day (potato & leek) which was delicious and such a perfect serving size! We also ordered the fried chicken which was also really good, it had a great punch of flavour, and was crispy. The mulled wine is also a must have when visiting! They know its good because they have a massive jug full of it and glasses with orange and cinnamon sticks on the ready!
