Description: The Cardrona Hotel serves up a modern take on traditional pub fare. Fresh, fast and filling you'll find all your traditional favourites created from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Our wine list features top quality local drops from some of the region's best wineries, along with a great selection of both tap and bottled beers, ciders and a full range of spirits. In winter the apres ski is legendary, while the sunny beer garden is the perfect summertime spot for a long lunch.

A slice of paradise & the perfect stop to relax before heading back home. So peaceful, beautiful, quiet and wonderful service. Reception was excellent, room was simple and comfortable with keeping to the era of the hotel with fresh modern touches.

I cannot recommend the Cardrona Hotel more as part of a trip to NZ. The service is excellent, the rooms are beautiful and cosy and the food is great. We had a lovely evening sitting in the garden. The views are also stunning.

We booked the restaurant for dinner on 19th February well in advance prior to coming over from Sydney Australia. The Hotel was full of holyday makers staying overnight and most enjoying the drinks and bar menu. We had a table for 2 and were served by Lee chef and waiter who made some good suggestions to help us choose. We had the lamb rump and gnochi pasta with a leafy green salad along with a nice glass of shiraz. When the meals arrived, served by Lee he apolagised for the delay but it was not too long a wait. He returned a little later to check on us and if we were happy with the meals which were delicious. I must say that Lee ( I assume one of the chefs and also waiter) was very attentive and a great asset to the Cadrona Hotel and its reputation for great food and service.
