Omakau Commercial Hotel
Built in 1898, as Omakau's original homestead, the Omakau Commercial offers a variety of food and refreshments.
We pride ourselves on our meals and service. We have a wonderful selection of Central Otago wines and Ales available from our bar to quench your thirst, and/or to compliment your meal or snack, which you may enjoy on our deck, in our historic bar, conservatory or beer garden.
We are open 364 days a year for your dining requirements. Dinner bookings are essential in busy season so we can provide the level of service we strive for.
They don’t know it, but most New Zealanders know the Omakau Commercial. Its original schist stables set the scene for an enormously popular ‘Good On Ya Mate’ Speight’s Beer commercials. The most popular being "The Two Tickets to the Ball.” Fondly called "McKinnons", and now used for functions, it is open throughout the day so you can come and see this wonderful old building – bring your camera!
We look forward to meeting you and providing you with some "Good Old Fashioned Hospitality".
Your Hosts: Stacey & Michael
Address: 1 Harvey Street, Omakau, 9376, Otago/Queenstown Lakes
