Spent two nights at the Railway Hotel. Meals were wonderful and the hosts made you feel very welcome. Menu has basic choices but every one very tasty. In our group of eight, everyone loved their meal without exception.

We are glad you had a good time with us. The biking has definitely taken off down here. It not hard to sell when you live in an area as amazing as Northern Southland

We were looking for a place halfway between Milford Sound and Queenstown to stay a night and luckily found this hotel/pub on Google. Super friendly staff, amazing hearty meals and real value for money accommodation. Definitely stay again.
