Back in the 1890s, the present day Omakau Com­mer­cial Ho­tel was leg­endary for be­ing the first homestead to be built in the town be­fore be­com­ing a wel­come ac­com­mo­da­tion house for weary trav­ellers. Come 2013 and le­gends sur­round­ing the Omakau Com­mer­cial Ho­tel con­tinue to grow, with the hos­pi­tal­ity dis­played from own­ers Stacey and Michael and be­ing en­joyed by lo­cals and trav­ellers alike, to the fore. Since tak­ing over own­er­ship in March 2007, an ex­ten­sive re­fur­bish­ment pro­gramme was im­ple­mented for the ho­tel and now this jour­ney is now com­plete with the premises metic­u­lously re­stored back to its for­mer glory. Tak­ing a step back in time and en­joy­ing the his­tory this build­ing holds has been part of Stacey and Michael’s aim and they have en­deav­oured to com­pli­ment the ho­tel with the ap­pro­pri­ate an­tiques and old me­mora­bilia.. As a desti­na­tion, the Omakau Com­mer­cial Ho­tel is a wel­come and mem­o­rable re­treat. The his­toric hos­pi­tal­ity of the past is to­day com­ple­mented by su­perb din­ing, with cater­ing op­tions for small and large groups avail­able, and with ad­di­tional ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions on site, makes it an at­trac­tive choice for gath­er­ings and cel­e­bra­tions. Op­tions abound for func­tions, with menus tai­lor made to meet re­quire­ments. Whether it is the his­toric ‘McKin­nons’, the re­stored stone sta­bles at the rear of the Ho­tel with its own spe­cial am­bi­ence, or the ‘Pomona Room’ named af­ter the orig­i­nal house, lo­cated within the ho­tel and open­ing out onto the beer gar­den, that are cho­sen, this is merely the start of cre­at­ing a great mem­ory for a get­to­gether that in it­self will be leg­endary over time.
