Lonely Planet review
Nine kilometres from St Arnaud, this 1887 hotel retells fireside tales, tall and true. A good stop for refreshments (cake and coffee, wild game pies, and a $49 four-course dinner, for which bookings are essential), Tophouse also boasts New Zealand’s smallest bar and a garden with mountain views. There are old-fashioned rooms within the hotel, and four chalets sleeping up to five.
Our independent authors have visited Tophouse Historic Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended historic hotels in Nelson Lakes National Park.
