Substantial Iconic Hotel, Bar, Café & Campervan Park on the market after 3 decades

Following a long happy tenure under the same popular owner, the historic Rotherham Hotel is offered to the market for sale as a freehold going concern.  

Location Amenities & Revenue Streams

This commanding well-maintained Tudor-style character property is located in the North Canterbury Rotherham township and enjoys   passing trade from travellers on the busy State Highway 70 route between Hanmer Springs and Kaikoura.

The hotel main building comprises 4 tastefully decorated internal guest rooms. Internally, there is also a private owner’s bedroom and living quarters. The recently refurbished hotel main bar is decorated in a rustic hunting & fishing theme popular with locals including dairy farm owners and staff. The main hotel building houses a generously proportioned dining area (seating 20 covers) and an additional large function suite which can seat up to 30 diners.

Nestled in the expansive landscaped grounds are 7 well-presented outdoor cabins and a large camping ground area, shower block and kitchen popular with itinerant Kiwi campervan owners.

A bottle store, takeaway and in-house food and barista coffee are further revenue streams for this diverse hospitality business which enjoys solid bread & butter accommodation business from contractors and freight companies servicing local farming enterprises in the thriving Amuri dairy basin. A recent addition to its portfolio is a local garden centre and vintage shop in its historic fully renovated historic Old Stables building and grounds.

This substantial unique property is being sold as a freehold going concern including land, buildings, chattels and business. Given its rural location it would be an ideal fit for an experienced hospitality leaseholder trading up to ownership or a motivated people-centred couple looking for a lifestyle change cum business opportunity.

Rotherham is a charming rural village with approximately 300 residents in the wider district. It is located in the Hurunui District of North Canterbury in New Zealand’s picturesque South Island and lies between Waiau in the North and Culverden 10 kms to the South on the Inland State Highway 7 Alpine-Pacific Triangle.

Re: location, pivotally, Rotherham lies just 37 km just 25 minutes drive from the Hanmer Springs Alpine Village resort so is well placed to benefit from passing trade between there and Kaikoura to the North. Since its establishment in the late 1870s, Rotherham has been the “hub” of the Amuri basin area. Government and private capital investment in the late 1980s Amuri Irrigation Investment Scheme has been a positive market force as the Rotherham Hotel has capitalised on the dairy dollar boom especially since the 1990s’. Amenities in the township include the Amuri Health Centre, Rotherham School, Rotherham Community Pool, the A & P Showgrounds, Rotherham Hall and historic Rotherham General Store also founded in 1878.
