Featured in the movie "Snakeskin" and the TV documentary "Off The Rails" with Marcus Lush. In summer Otira enjoys lots of sun which gets trapped in the valley, come and see for yourself and take a walk down by the river or stroll along the village street to see the quaint cottages and meet the locals.

Come in and get warm! Sometimes the road closes at the foot of the mountain. We have great coffee to warm the cockles of your heart! Our business is to serve the public with old fashioned food, a bed for the night or phone to get help when you break down. We are dedicated to providing accommodation at affordable rates.
Who We Are
The Hennah family moved here from Auckland 13 years ago with the intention of revitalising a little piece of New Zealand history. The hotel was closed and the village houses mainly abandoned. Those who still lived here had to travel many miles to get the basics of life.
Now the hotel is doing well and most of the houses are occupied.
Lester Rowntree is bringing stagecoaches and lots of history to Otira. Contact Sam at the hotel for more information (03)7382890
