Step inside the enchanting Brydone Hotel Oamaru and you will find yourself in a gentler, more gracious era, when a sweeping staircase, grand chandeliers and ornate interiors represented the height of style and the finest accommodation. Built of white, elaborately carved Oamaru limestone in 1881, this impressive Oamaru hotel has welcomed and charmed guests for over a century.
Relax in the Totara Bar, sip a drink or two under the striking stained glass ceiling and sample some of our award winning cuisine. The Waitaki region is a hidden gastronomic gem — our Jersey Benne potatoes are world famous and our Whitestone cheese is coveted by lovers of cheese all over. We pride ourselves on using the best locally sourced produce to bring you the true ‘taste of Waitaki’.
We are open for breakfast , lunch and dinner. The Totara Bar is the perfect place to start your morning, end your evening, or even sit and watch the world go by as you sip on a coffee and try one of our famous scones.
