My friends and I went there on the 5th October only to find a very unhappy man serve us. There was no atmosphere in the hotel, needless to say we had only one drink and left.

I'm sorry mera1 had this experience at our hotel, The Royal i8n Naseby. My husband had only a week ago had shoulder surgery & was pretty sore. As you may have noticed on other reviews this is not the normal service from us. Hope you will give us another try & sorry to hear how you found your visit.

Freezing outside, so the fire was roaring. Lamb shank meal was brilliant and room was very warm. Struggled to pick up the wifi but by that point I was just ready for bed! Perfect for one nighters!

Our group of 6 were all so impressed with our meals! The wine was outstanding, good local labels at good prices. The pork belly was a highlight for our group although some big eaters may also want to order a side of chips to share. The fish and chips were so fresh and the chips were the best I have had in years so crispy and well seasoned! We sat outside at one of many tables, there was also a garden bar with a playground and lots of grass so would recommend it for summer visits by families!

We were on the rail trail and the team at the Royal came and collected us from Ranfurly and dropped us back after a great meal. Definately a highlight.
