Located just metres from the Otago Central Rail Trail, the Omakau Commercial Hotel was built in 1898 by William Leask as Omakau’s first homestead then accommodation house for weary travellers.
The Hotel is available for any of your dining requirements, 364 days a year. Our Chefs pride themselves on their flavour and presentation – we invite you to look at our Dining page for some mouth-watering temptations. 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.

Located at the back of the Hotel, are the original schist stables which were built around 1880 to house Mr Leask’s horses when he farmed the land the hotel now stands on. You may have already seen them without knowing – this is where Speight’s filmed their “Good On Ya Mate” adverts – the most memorable being “The Two Tickets to the Ball. Now called McKinnons, this lovely building is available for functions, and is open during the day for you to come and enjoy some of Central’s original history. Click on the McKinnons tab at the top of the page to see more.
