The refurbishment marks a significant investment by the hotels’ owners aimed at meeting the demands of the largely international clientele of the region.

The refurbishment took nearly three months to complete on a full-time basis and now reveals a fresh new look for the reception, dining and bar areas of the hotel.

The hotel offers travellers to the region an oasis of genuine kiwi hospitality and comfort, that now includes a refreshed menu and dining offering to showcase the local flavours of this region.

Renowned as one of the most pristine environments that is exceptional in both its ecological and geographical diversity, Heartland World Heritage Hotel is nestled in the small township of Haast at the base of the mighty mountains and amidst one of the region’s most dramatic landscapes, the South Westland World Heritage Area.

 With fresh, alpine air and invigorating outdoor activities, visitors to the region are sure to work up an excellent appetite and this is met by a range of delicious dishes served throughout the day that make the most of the region’s fresh, seasonal produce and are a showcase of great New Zealand cuisine that includes; lamb, South Island salmon and the highly sought-after delicacy, South Island whitebait.
