If you drive from Queenstown to Wanaka over the Crown Range Pass (very hairy roads), you will probably miss this wonderful place. It just looks like a little old building at the edge of the road. DONT be fooled, behind the small facade is a Tardis like world of history good food and drink, relaxing gardens with the perfect place to break your journey and have lunch. People we met there told us it is a great place to stay as well as just visit. There is even a Gold Mine shaft in the bar. Wander around the maze of rooms and passages and you will find all kinds of artifacts from bygone days. The food is very good and reasonably priced. See if you can find the Hotel cats!!
