Cardrona Hotel

Get a taste of the Wild Wild West at one of the oldest and most photographed buildings in New Zealand.


Built in 1863 during the Gold Rush, the Cardrona Hotel is one of the oldest buildings in New Zealand. With its old-time-y false front, the hotel looks like it belongs in a western movie - which is probably why it’s one of the most photographed buildings in the country. Inside, you’ll find a cozy pub complete with copper-top bar, leather chairs, and stone-fireplace, which is a great setting to sip on some mulled wine or tuck into a full meal, especially on cold winter days. Inside and out, the Cardrona Hotel is Instagram gold, inside and out.
