About this property
Located on the scenic drive route to Lake Kaniere, Dorothy Falls & Hokitika Gorge this Iconic Hotel is a favourite stop over for visitors and day trippers for lunch, dinner or the night. The Hotel is located in dairy farming country and is very much your traditional country pub with lots of stories to tell like the famous Kokatahi Band that was established around 1910. Originally called the Kokatahi-Koiterangi Band, it was set up by locals, mostly farmers with some gold miners, to entertain on Sunday afternoons which was their only day off. Consistently playing from before WW1, the band is recognised throughout New Zealand both by its unique sound and outfit. The Band plays popular and instantly-recognised tunes dating from the time when the Band was formed, in the early part of the twentieth century, through to the present day. These include bush ballads, old Irish, Scottish, and of course NZ folk songs, and many tunes are easily recognisable by most people.
