    3 of us were touring the South Island. We had eaten at several places along the way; breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's not a great selection in Cardrona. It's the remains of a gold-rush-era town and the gold ran out decades ago. The hotel had...More

    I only stopped for a drink, but I think next time I pass I will stay at least one night. The menu looked cosmopolitan and reasonably priced and the people sitting around looked happy. The beer was fresh and well presented.

    Good morning. There are shuttles available but they must be booked beforehand as they do not stop here as a matter of course. The best people to contact are either Alpine Shuttles or Yello out of Wanaka.
