An Enduring History of High Country Hospitality

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Cardrona Valley, The Cardrona Hotel (Est. 1863) is one of New Zealand's oldest hotels. A comfortable 40 minute drive from Queenstown and only 20 minutes from Wanaka, this unique hotel offers both quality accommodation and traditional hospitality. It is the ideal venue for your next function or corporate retreat, overnight stay or apres-ski refreshment. The hotel is close to 5 major ski areas.

With breathtaking scenery, this tranquil rural setting boasts a hotel steeped in history from the gold rush era. While dry tussock gently ripples in the breeze, relax in an air of timeless comfort and understated style while recapturing yesteryear.

Experience the rustic charm of the hotel's historic restaurant and bar which has recently undergone extensive refurbishment. Catering for groups of up to 120, or Al Fresco dining for 200, the Cardrona Hotel selects only the freshest local produce to create a truly memorable dining experience. An informal collection of artefacts and memorabilia in the hotel gives a small glimpse into the extraordinary human history of this area while creating themed surroundings to complete your experience.

The hotel is complemented by 16 well-appointed ensuite rooms with delightful cottage garden views. The accommodation combines modern comforts with an historical ambience and grace.

The Cardrona Hotel prides itself on exceeding your expectations through quality of service, characterised by warm personal attention.

Hi Steven,
This could almost be mistaken for being taken back in the 1900's with the old car sitting out the front. Nice POV and composition. Can just spot the blue sky trying to break through the thick blanket of cloud. The lighting is nice and subtle it seems, excellent clarity and DOF from f/10.

TFS,
Scott.

Hi Steven,
Interesting picture.
I like very much. Colors, contrast, good light.
Have a nice day,
Adrian

Lovely old building, you can't help wondering about some of the events that would have taken place there over the years, did you get a photo of the stone building to the right/rear of the hotel.

Hi Steven,
I love this old place, I am sure I have a similar shot in the archives but had to wait until a campervan moved on. It looks a bit of a dull day or late afternoon but you have captured it well - hope you stopped for a refreshment - it would need to be Speights in that place
cheers
Jack
