Tophouse Historical Inn

Tophouse was built in 1887. It was built of "Cob" and was originally built as an accommodation house for traveller's and "Drovers" men on horseback herding their sheep and has always been a Hotel. Now it is a Bed and Breakfast for those people that want to experience what it is like to stay in one of New Zealand's first accommodation Hotels. It has been kept original, with a lot more comfort than in the old days.

There are 2 large open fires in the dining room and another in the Lounge room. The bedrooms are small but cosy. The Blue Room our largest bedroom and is off the dining room and has a great view of Mount Robert. There is also the Green Room with double bed also off the dining and is a cosy room suitable for 1-2 people.

The Gold Room has another queen bed and the Lavender Room is a twin room both off the lounge room.

There are shared bathroom facilities down the hall which have been beautifully renovated recently with 2 showers and 2 toilets.

We only do meals on request (a few days notice) but we don't mind if you want to use our kitchen to make a simple meal.

Tophouse sits on a hill and gets an amazing view of the mountains, beautiful sunsets and stunning night sky.

Tophouse also has the smallest "Bar" in NZ also historical added onto the cob building in 1926. Many visitors enjoy a drink at the bar and getting a photo to remember the old cob Guesthouse.
