Photo of Cardrona Hotel

“One of the last remaining buildings from the Cardrona gold-rush era and arguably one of the most famous hotels in the country. Charming rooms are simple yet cosy with grey and blue hues, sink into beds and wooden furniture. Boasting an award-winning restaurant and popular beer garden. ”
