Excellent location for Great Walks

Great location and fantastic way to start our trek up the Caples and Routeburn tracks. We loved that the hotel was close to the start and conclusion of both tracks. In addition, we were away from the noise of Queenstown. Well worth it.

Trip down memory lane

Fantastic place to stay that has a range of accommodation to suit most budgets.I especially like the heritage lodge. Great location, especially if you are a keen walker. The Routeburn track and other hikes are close by. So nice to stay somewhere with plenty of character and history. Lovely meals and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Fabulous deck for enjoying a wine and the view. Do bring your sandfly repellent.
