The Cardrona Valley Road is a short cut between Queenstown and Wanaka. As I was speeding along, we whistled past this hotel and a couple of other establishments of similar look and feel. Turning around the van I had to go back. The old car in front of the hotel and the rusting whisky sign above the door (complete with bullet holes) really adds the to feel of the place. Maybe next visit I might get chance to pop in for lunch.
