Lumsden Hotel

The Cycle Trail passes right through Lumsden, where there is a good range of accommodation and food and drink, making it a logical place to stop for an evening along the trail.  

A small country town set within sheep, dairy and deer farms, Lumsden sits on the banks of the Oreti River and is surrounded by picturesque views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Lumsden has two hotels, two cafes, a bakery, a supermarket, a dairy and a self service fuel station.

The Lumsden Hotel is one of the oldest and the grandest buildings in Lumsden. Built in 1875 by the celebrated architect Robert Burwell it is now an ideal base for a range of activities including trout fishing, tramping, cycling and sightseeing around some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.

Located on the main street of Lumsden the fully renovated hotel provides old world country hospitality with spotless, airy rooms, a generous guest lounge, a warm and welcoming bar and a large relaxing garden. Great food is available from the kitchen at almost any hour and picnic lunches can be provided.
