Dunstan House in Clyde’s heritage precinct

Built from 1898 and opened in 1900, Dunstan House is an iconic local historic building situated in the heritage precinct on the main street of Clyde.

Its grand entrance has welcomed many travellers over its life, from the original weary travellers stepping off the Cobb & Co stage-coach, to the more recent cyclists at the beginning or end of the Otago Central Rail Trail.

Whether exploring the region's historic goldfields, discovering the fine wines of Central Otago, or simply looking for a luxurious getaway, visitors find Dunstan House a friendly warm "home away from home".

Offering boutique accommodation, this heritage hotel features the original elegant kauri wooden staircase which links the living areas and accommodation. A large colonial veranda overlooks the main street of Clyde, offering an elevated sunny spot where guests can soak in the atmosphere.

Guests find each of the rooms individually decorated, reflecting that Victorian era and including William Morris wallpapers, while mixing that elegant turn-of-the-century style with modern conveniences and comfort.

Eight of the 11 rooms available have had full ensuites fitted (with some including the original deep clawfoot baths) while maintaining the historical feel and the same attention to detail and dedication to comfort.

A mixture of king, queen, and double-sized beds is available, with three rooms also having the convenience of an extra single bed.

The suite, complete with canopied bed and its own private lounge and balcony access, provides a romantic ambience, and is ideal for honeymooners, couples looking for a special weekend away, or those who wish to simply relax in a quiet peaceful setting.

Dunstan House at Clyde is the ideal base for winter explorers, being an equal distance from both Queenstown and Wanaka skifields, and a great place to come back to after enjoying the Central Otago winter wonderland.
