Stopped here for lunch on our way over the Crown Range. Their Ploughman's lunch is AMAZING. Cold beer and cider for the missus hit the spot on a hot day in summer. Friendly service and surroundings are lovely. Definitely recommend if you're passing through!

Stayed here in the weekend for a ski getaway, stunning warm room overlooking the common area and fireplace outside! Lovely continental breakfast of croissant's etc.next to a roaring fire! The free (limited) internet was a total bonus! Mulled wine after a long day skiing topped off my stay, and a meal in the restaurant was pleasant, would recommend ordering the... More

Stayed here late June 2014. Have stopped by for a meal before on the trip from Queenstown to Wanaka but decided to stay here for the night. The room was nicely appointed inside, modern, warm (it was snow season), really comfortable bed. Breakfast was included and was delicious with great quality food, not just cereal and milk. It was my... More

Pizza was delicious... Service was super friendly. Setting was awesome, open fire, leather couch, beer on tap! What more could you want?? We could have stayed here all afternoon but were heading to Lake Tekapo. The soup we has was massive and home made deliciousness... The pizza was equally great! A stop for anyone traveling through!

Came here for a family wedding and everything was perfect! The grounds were beautiful, food was excellent (buffet with salads, pastas, breads and meats), drinks aplenty, attentive service all evening, and the rooms were lovely and cosy. Breakfast in the morning was of a consistently great standard, leaving everyone feeling refreshed and happy. I have only fond memories of the... More

great old place to stop for a coffe o drink. BUT beware the cat. The black one is your friend then suddenly lashes out at you. Real history at this place and wonderful warm open fireplace to sit by. Would be amazing to be there in the winter when it was surrounded by snow. The cat even took on the... More

Says the sign outside and it is true. This place is a gem! What can be better than sitting outside in their beer garden on a sunny autumn day with a beer and a delicious burger? The answer is nothing. Nothing is better. If it gets too cold you can go inside and sit by the cosy open fire and... More

The accommodation and restaurant at the Cardrona Hotel are first rate. Whether you come during the full-on ski season or any other time of the year - autumn for us - you'll find a great welcome. The food is wonderful! The hotel is right out in the country, in the Cardrona Valley and between mountains, on the road between Wanaka... More
