Welcome to the Lake Ferry Hotel

Important: Due to the ever present threat of Covid-19 in our communities, and the current shortage of staff in the hospitality industry, we are unable to return to our normal summer trading hours this year (2021-22). Please check our Facebook page for updates regarding our holiday season opening hours. Vaccine pass required

Situated on the shores of Lake Onoke, overlooking Palliser Bay, the Lake Ferry Hotel is one of the oldest licensed hotels in New Zealand. We have been providing shelter and refreshments to travellers since 1851, and today we stay true to that tradition. We also cater for large groups for weddings, celebrations and conferences. So whether you want a bite to eat after a family trip out the coast, a quiet drink after a hot day in the sun, or the perfect place to celebrate your big day: the Lake Ferry Hotel is the place for you.
