We hadn't booked ahead so chose this hotel as it was right in the centre of town. The room had two single beds and a reasonable sized bathroom. Most importantly for us, it was really warm! Double glazed windows meant it retained the heat through the night. We didn't eat at the restaurant, so can't comment on the food or... More

Stayed here for just the one night with my 2 daughters. Very clean, quiet and secure. We had a hearty dinner in the downstairs restaurant, room and meals all at a very reasonable price. Good service for a busy Saturday night. Excellent atmosphere in the resto. Only thing to fault was lack of wifi, or more correctly, staff could not... More

We have tried time and again to eat at this hotel as it's handy walking distance from the campground. But there is an elderly lady behind the bar who doubles as the waitress that is consistently terrible. She can't remember orders, repeatedly gets them wrong and on our latest visit argued with us when we told her all the drinks... More

We stumbled across this hotel while walking to find somewhere for dinner. A classic old hotel but a very warm welcome and lovely food at very reasonable prices. Can recommend the lambs fry and bacon was very yum.

Our sports team found the Heritage Hotel to be good value for money. The refurbished rooms were of good size with an ensuite and comfortable beds. The men had good hearty breakfasts before their full day of South Island Woodchopping Championships. We had our team dinner in the dining room which is in keeping with the style of the hotel....

The Heritage restaurant is certainly looking a bit dated and tired. However they pitch themselves in the middle of the market and do honest large portioned pub grub which was very good on the day we went (New Years Day). If you just want a good feed at a reasonable cost and don't expect fine dining then Heritage is OK.... More

Very welcoming, attentive staff who offered prompt service throughout. There was minimal wait time on food orders. Great portion sizes, and quality food. The Heritage definitely offers value for money. I would not hesitate in returning. I will be sure to tell one and all about this little gem in Geraldine.

We used to come here a bit when it was the stone grill and even after that but this place has gone way down hill unfortunately! It was dingy and depressing and very dated. Even the way the napkins are folded into crowns is so old fashioned. We ordered some wedges with no sour cream - the wedges were COVERED... More

We arrived in Geraldine at 8pm on way from Wanaka to Christchurch. Greeted by friendly lady behind bar. Good quality well priced pub meal. If you are looking for a slap up meal, this isn't the place to go to, but if you are looking for a good value meal with no frills I would recommend.

Good value, generous serving, fresh, good selection on the menu, friendly and hospitable staff, what more do you need? Basically genuine kiwi tucker in heritage surroundings. Food was served quickly. Give it a go, we were certainly happy that we did.
