Lauder Hotel

Accommodation Type

Hotel, Historic


$60 per person or $75 per person for sole occupancy of our Queen or Double rooms


Located on the Otago Central Rail Trail, the Lauder Hotel is the original Railway Hotel, built in 1904. When Train numbers diminished the hotel was turned 180 degrees to face the road - a story Knobby (Derek) will love to tell you!

Our menu includes the best 300gram Rib Eye steaks, pan fried or freshly battered southern Blue Cod, and we happily cater for your food requirements (the Vegetable Pakora’s with Mint Raita are vegetarian and gluten free and taste great).

On tap we have Macs Hop Rocker, Gold & Black along with classic Speight’s gold medal Ale plus a great wine list (Knobby is a winemaker).

We offer clean and comfortable accommodation with free tea & coffee making facilities for guests and a good continental breakfast is included in the tariff.

Knobby & Vicki want to give you a memorable nights accommodation, great food and friendly hospitality – we look forward to meeting you!

Our rooms: 1 Queen, 1 Double, 2 twin.
