Great place to overnight when travelling to the west coast. Staff are very accommodating. Breakfast is included. The building is old world rustic and beautiful. Across the road from the railway so very convenient. Would definitely stay there again.

This is an amazing old building in Queenstown which is well worth a look. The food served in the large dinning area was average pub food which was very quick to come to the table.. The service staff were very friendly and helpful.
