Ranfurly Hotel is a striking Art Deco building dating back to the mid-1930s and has recently undergone a complete transformation. Some of our furniture, furnishings, and colour schemes reflect the Art Deco era.

We are the rural Art Deco hotel of the South Island, conveniently situated on the Central Otago Rail Trail, which has become an icon of this area. Thousands of people bike the trail every year to see wide open spaces and beautiful snow-capped mountains in winter.

You hosts, Simon, Sheree and staff, are looking forward to welcoming you.
