Haast World Heritage Hotel Haast
Nestled at the bottom of South Westland alongside the Haast River, you will find the Haast World Heritage Hotel. The hotel’s superb location, just 2 hours from the glaciers and 3 hours from Queenstown, makes it the ideal stopover point between the West Coast and the Southern Lakes. Haast is the gateway to the South Island’s rugged West Coast, one of the most breathtaking, untouched regions of New Zealand. Following extensive refurbishment, the Haast World Heritage Hotel is the perfect base to escape the hustle of modern life and explore the scenic splendor of South Westland. The hotel offers 52 rooms consisting of 50 Superior Rooms and 2 Family Suites. Many rooms offer views towards the mountains, while others look out over the vast surrounding farmland. The “Frontier Café & Bar” is well renowned for fantastic food, and offers a-la-carte dining in a relaxed atmosphere. The bar also offers sky television and two pool tables and is the perfect place to interact with the locals. The other dining option is the seasonal “Waitoto Grill” which is open during the high season for dinner. “The Waitoto Grill” is also open on demand for group lunches and daily for buffet breakfast.
