Danseys Pass Coach Inn

Built in 1862 the Danseys Pass Coach Inn is 2000 ft above sea level. It's history can be traced back to the 1860's, when it serviced a multi-cultural gold prospecting community of 2000. Teamsters with their wagon trains plying trade between the Waitaki Basin and the Central Otago gold fields used the Coach Inn as a stopover when travelling on to the more remote gold prospecting areas of Central Otago.

The Inn retains the essential elements of the 19th century earth and stone Coach Inn with roaring log fires and and country cottage themes in the rooms with locally made country folk art. Refurbishing has captured the character and unique atmosphere of the gold rush era.
