After a tough day on the Otago Rail Trail our spirits were immediately lifted when we arrived to stay the night at Blacks Hotel - our host plied us with complimentary cold squash and wet towels. Such a positive welcome was indicative of the establishment - quirky but great fun and warm hospitality. We all really enjoyed our stay.

we were bike riding on the otago central rail trail and arrived at the hotel late afternoon. we were greeted by a happy chappy with a cool drink and a washer to wipe the dirt from our faces, so well done. a beer and then to our rooms. not large but very clean. because we had a large meal for lunch i tried the entree of haggis, so good. breakfast before we headed off for another day on the rail trail. great service, great drinks, excellent meals, a great stopover. had the whisky marmalade with the haggis fantastic the only souvenir i took back home.

This art deco gem has well-priced rooms and serves delicious food. Each bedroom is decorated in a different theme. The menu is small, but the portions are huge and great value for money. Local wines are available by the glass. The new owners and their staff are to be congratulated !

Visited with family for a meal. Warm welcome and a nice fire burning. Kids were happy with meals they ordered. Nice food presentation. All the adult meals were good too, and nicely presented. Decent prices. Emersons on tap plus a few other beers. Friendly staff (owners) - I understand they've just taken over the business in the last two months. Good work.

The new management of Blacks Hotel are to be congratulated on their service and meals. We stopped at the hotel for a drink and decided to stay for dinner. It was a busy night for fhem (quiz night), yet our meals were provided quite promptly and the waitress/co-owner took time to talk with us and explain the work they were doing to develop the hotel. She was very friendly, efficient and courteous. The food was excellent; the fish was delicious and very fresh, the steaks were tender and beautifully cooked, and the haggis entree was divine! We were a large group (9 of us), and had arrived unexpectedly, so were very impressed with Blacks ability to offer such high quality food and service. Prices were very reasonable. Highly recommended.
