Cardrona Hotel


If you’re thinking of a Central Otago wedding, then consider the Cardrona Hotel as your venue.
Offering breath-taking scenery, a relaxed and charming atmosphere, and superb high-country
hospitality, the Cardrona Hotel is the perfect venue for an extraordinary wedding.

Situated on the spectacular Crown Range road between Queenstown and Wanaka, the hotel provides the chance for a garden or church ceremony, unrivalled photo locations and a range of reception packages to suit all budgets.

A venue hire charge of $10,000 (peak) or $7,500 (off peak) gives you and your guests exclusive use of the hotel, restaurant, bar, and grounds from 3pm on the day of the wedding until 10am the
following morning. This includes 14 ensuite hotel rooms with a continental breakfast for house guests. Couples can choose to charge back a portion of the accommodation costs to guests,
which is then deducted from the final bill.

Tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery and glassware are also included. Candles ($3 each), linen napkins ($1 each), tablecloths ($6 each), and hessian table runners ($10 each) can be arranged. We also have a selection of vintage props available to hire on request.

The hotel caters for weddings of all sizes. The restaurant can seat up to 85 guests, or up to 250
guests for a cocktail-style reception. A marquee can also be erected on the lawn providing seated
dining for up to 250 people.

Our experienced functions manager, team of qualified chefs, and superb front-of-house staff will
work with you to create a truly memorable day.
