.The grand old lady of the West Coast with a prominent facade in the town streetscape. Built in 1901 it dates back to the wealth of the mining era at the turn of the 20th Century. . Inside is a National Trust listed staircase made from Tasmanian Blackwood. The raw timber was shipped to England, carved and sent back to Queenstown where it has enjoyed a rich history and is admired by all. The restaurant is set in a large traditional dining room with a sense of the grandeur of the past. In cold conditions the open fire is lit for added warmth and ambiance.
