My wife and I along with our 2year old daughter stayed here while doing the Rail Trail. It's a great wee pub with a cosy atmosphere. The food was great and the price reasonable. We were collected and dropped back into Hyde. We have no problem recommending Stanley's for a nights stay.

The food is absolutely amazing, Try the Steak sandwich!!! Rooms are modern and refurbished. A great place to stay close to the Central Otago Rail Trail. Child friendly and the beer is always cold. Always insist on stopping here for lunch if passing through and sometimes go out of my way.

The 4 of us had a ball! Great people, food and accommodation. Owner even picked us up early because we were cold, wet and hungry and would of had to wait another 3 hours. This is how a country pub should be.

If you want a quiet comfortable place to stay with great food and service and friendly staff then look no further. Annie and Claire are a good team, they have spent time upgrading the hotel and provide an excellent service to travelers and miners from local gold mine, a delightful place to stay.

Great food and very decent size and price to match. Nice and fresh salad with a beautiful tasty steak and fries for hubby and a awesome steak sandwich for myself delish. Great welcome from the lady behind the bar with very warm and friendly service. A big thanks to you both.

Fantastic place to stay. A great NZ counry pub, incredibly friendly, clean and very well priced. Had a wonderful evening on the way to Dunedin. The publicans, mother and daughter, are a treat. We had a fun filled evening. Excellent evening meal and a huge breakfast. Well worth a visit and stay the night, clean and tidy rooms.
