The Theatre Royal Hotel located in the historic town of Kumara is the West Coast`s only fully restored gold miners’ hotel. It was also a once world-renowned theatre. The historic gold rush Hotel features six themed ensuite rooms. Each room is named after an historical figure with a connection to the hotel’s rich past and features a unique blend of Victorian decor, antique furnishings and modern amenities.
We also have further accommodation options to choose from. Situated directly across from the main hotel are The Old Bank of New Zealand suites. This heritage building has been lovingly restored into two luxurious suites.
Another option is the Miners Cottages, these spacious elegant new cottages are situated directly behind the main hotel and feature large outdoor decks with lovely peaceful, private bush views. We also have Burridge’s Miners Cottage surrounded by bush with views to the mountains, the cottage has a large secluded private garden, hip bath in Queen bedroom and log burner.
If you are travelling along the West Coast Wilderness cycle trail, Kumara is the perfect place to base yourself. Packed lunches and lockable bike sheds are available at the Hotel and shuttles and luggage transfer for cyclists can be arranged via Wilderness Trail Shuttle.
West Coast hospitality awaits in our welcoming restaurant and bar which is open daily. Our philosophy is fresh is best and our chefs use home grown and local produce where possible. Relax by the log fire or enjoy a refreshing drink on the veranda.
