The Hurunui Hotel is famous in New Zealand for its liquor licence, having held its license continuously since 1st July 1860. The original owner, John Hastie, was granted a conditional licence for the ‘Hurunui Accommodation House’. Conditions included; "that he keep eight beds in four bedrooms; shelter for six horses; provide stock yards for yoking up cattle; provide horses for travellers to ford the river; and also direct strangers to a safe fording place." In 1982 a small group of local farmers banded together to save the hotel after it had fallen into disrepair. The community rallied and with help from other sources, including The Historic Places Trust, the Hotel was restored. It is now a thriving hotel and a popular stop for tourists, who can enjoy sampling our finest brews in a New Zealand landmark.

With recent new owners this hotel is looking great. It's got a really long and authentic history. It's right in front of a vineyard, and has picnic facilities and function rooms opening up. When travelling through North Canterbury, or back from the West Coast via...More
