Great to stay in most photographed hotel in nz. Lots of character and really enjoyed the vibe. Instead if Queenstown again I chose something part of NZ history-one of oldest hotels in NZ

Love this place! It was busy for dinner and food took a while but that was explained when we ordered. Dinner was delicious. It's just a great atmosphere. Fires roaring inside, cold outside. Had breakfast the next day and food was quick and tasty!

Such a great place to stop while driving to Queenstown from Wanaka. Rural setting surrounded by snow capped mountains. Just stunning

Great place to go after being up the mountain, good chilled atmosphere, (most) staff friendly, deep fried pickles are a must! Mulled wine was average.

Popped in for a drink after visiting cardrona. Excellent atmosphere and beer, however poor customer service from one of the bar staff (blonde/pink hair), didn't look like she wanted to be there and didn't make us feel welcome. Great service from other bar staff though.

Don't not stop if your passing this place! It's a great spot for a beer (panhead supercharger) and a historic place with a lot of culture!

The Cardrona Hotel serves up a modern take on traditional pub fare. Fresh, fast and filling you'll find all your traditional favourites created from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Our wine list features top quality local drops from some of the region's best wineries, along with a great selection of both tap and bottled beers, ciders and a full range of spirits. In winter the apres ski is legendary, while the sunny beer garden is the perfect summertime spot for a long lunch.
