Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel provides bedrooms above a wonderful Gastropub - the blue cod was the best we had during our NZ trip and we had a lot! Despite being a very busy Sunday we heard no noise from the bar and dining room below. Our double room was comfortable with nice quality linens and plenty of towels. The shared bathrooms were spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water - they are down the corridor so make sure to bring your PJs! A continental breakfast was left for us with a good choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt etc. Great value for money

Worth the drive! Hidden at the back of the pub entrance is their restaurant and an outside side eatery. Most delicious menu at this hidden gem that will cater for all. Staff are warm & friendly highly recommended the shrimp and coconut rice!!

Stayed 4 nights. Very friendly staff and the flat was warm and comfortable. Had several meals in the pub. Very good selection, presentation and value. Happily return and stay again. Acts as a good base to see the surrounding area with only 40 minutes to Invercargill. All in all a great experience.

Walking the Te Araroa Trail we broke our journey to rest and resupply in Otautau. We stayed at the Otautau Hotel for 3 nights and had an exceptional experience. The accommodation was fantastic. Clean and comfortable rooms and bathrooms and an ample continental breakfast each morning. The hotel restaurant was fantastic. The menu was huge and varied and the food simply delicious. The decor in the bar and restaurant was clean, modern and very inviting and the atmosphere made us feel very welcome. Kim and David run a great operation here and were so warm and welcoming. It was the best place to stay and couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Stayed here with my partner for one night whilstwalking the TA. The place was nice. Room were small and the pizza we had was good. Good shower. When we checked out we just gave them a heads up that the light in the room didnt work and there was not enough cutlery for us in the morning. Said it did bother us but maybe they should know.
We then ordered a beer and started a game of pool and was approached by a lady who told us the correct thing to do was to approach her before we checked out and that we had done the wrong thing by not asking for more cutlery. We again explained we didnt really care (we had our own in our packs), we share our cutlery and she continued to attack us. We were going to stay for lunch, but we stayed so uncomfortable that we left. She made a small issue we pointed out into a real problem.

We stayed over night at the Otautau Hotel and couldn’t recommend it more; Kim and David are doing a fantastic job; delicious meals (the blue cod was great followed by the tasty homemade cheesecake), great selection of drinks, comfortable, clean accomodation with a generous continental breakfast included. The pub has a great atmosphere and the service is friendly and efficient, no wonder the restaurant was full and the takeaway orders keep on coming. Thank you all 👍😀.

Arriving late at Otautau from Queenstown, I found this lovely hotel right on the main road with its elegant facade. The town was by then completely silent and this hotel looked to be the only place with some signs of life. I walked in and was greeted by a lovely woman at the reception. I was hungry and straightaway ordered food, which was absolutely delicious. Blue cod piping hot.
