Warm up at the Cardrona Ho­tel

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

With this year’s Win­ter Fes­ti­val well under way, thoughts in­evitably turn to warm win­ter fare and drinks at the end of the day.

The ideal spot to re­lax af­ter a full day of Fes­ti­val ac­tiv­i­ties is the Cardrona Ho­tel, lo­cated on the Crown Range Road – just a 40-minute drive from Queen­stown and 20 min­utes from Wanaka – the Cardrona Ho­tel is a wel­come re­treat.

The Cardrona Ho­tel is one of New Zealand’s old­est and most iconic ho­tels. Es­tab­lished in 1863, the ho­tel rep­re­sents the area’s rich gold rush era his­tory, and is one of only two build­ings stand­ing of the orig­i­nal town­ship.

Its rus­tic charm, stun­ning moun­tain set­ting and rich his­tory make it a must see while vis­it­ing Cen­tral Otago.

Said to be the most pho­tographed pub in New Zealand, be­hind the his­toric fa­cade lies a stun­ning beer gar­den, charm­ing ho­tel rooms, and an ex­cel­lent bar and restau­rant serv­ing a mod­ern take on tra­di­tional pub fare.

The ho­tel’s restau­rant is open seven days for break­fast, lunch and din­ner, of­fer­ing fresh, fast and fill­ing meals cre­ated from lo­cally sourced and sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents.

The ho­tel also of­fers an ex­ten­sive wine list with some of the re­gion’s best vin­tages on of­fer, as well as a full se­lec­tion of beers, ciders and spir­its. What­ever your tip­ple might be, the Cardrona Ho­tel is sure to have it.

At this time of year, en­joy the Cardrona Ho­tel’s leg­endary apres ski – ideal af­ter a full day of fes­ti­val ac­tiv­i­ties.
