Cardrona Hotel, Wanaka Reviews - Write a Review

  • The bar/restaurant was full of character and atmosphere. It felt like a place with a story behind it, which it definitely is. The Cardrona hotel was build in the 19th century, during a gold rush. You can still feel the vibes there now. Additionally there was great fast service and everything was spotless. I would definitely recommend stopping of at Cardrona to spend the night or just have a drink 😁

  • DON'T DRIVE PAST THIS VERY POPULAR AND ENJOYABLE HOTEL. You'll be most disappointed when ( if) you learn what a mistake that was. We don't live in the South Island but whenever we go there our trip route always goes through Cardrona. That's because of this wonderful character hotel and its grounds and all the staff and the quality of everything there. GO :-)

  • Just stop too look. liked what I saw great bq area outside. nice green grass out back will be going back.

  • Had a very relaxing, delicious lunch and beer in the garden bar. Don’t drive past, stop and check out well worth at look!

  • Very relaxing environment. Nice layout, indoor and outdoor flow. Also you can stay there. Fire places inside and out for the warm days. With very friendly staff.
