Great spot. Loved it. Weather great. Worth a night or two.............. new owners have upgraded. You get a real taste of an old kiwi pub run by good buggers. Coffee and food good. We're booked to return next year.

Quaint, Kitchy, relaxed and superb! A great place to stay, dine or for a drink. The hosts are friendly and professional and the accomodation is awesome. It exceeded our expectations in every way! The prefect Central Otago stopover.
