If you have the time, drop into the blue pub for a cold beer and some warm food. Great NZ pub. We stopped in after a day's skiing and the fire was roaring and it topped off a great day. Kids had plenty of space to run around outside.

Rooms are at 2nd floor while the ground floor is the pub and restaurant. The 3 beds room we have was reasonable spacious. It is clean and beds are comfortable. The shared bathrooms and shower room are not as warm as we want in the middle of july. The only problem we encounter during our stay was the internet connection...

Sorry to hear the internet was down during your stay. We have identified a hardware issue and are currently replacing a faulty unit. I will also look into the bathrooms temperature, we have heaters set to timers so I will check on them. Thanks for the comments.

This was more backpacker accommodation than I realised when we booked. Handy to Mt Hutt but i didn't get a good night sleep. Old bed linen, toilet was miles away as was the shower and there was far too much light coming into the rooms from glass windows above the door to the room. Looks freshly painted which was good...

Hi and thanks for taking the time to be specific about your experience. We certainly make a big effort in our advertising to be transparent and although our rooms are not ensuited, the bathrooms are clean and new. We also accept that the Blue Pub is not highly recommended for families with young children as we have regular live music...

Arrived very late and left early, but beds were comfy and room was clean. Shared bathrooms were clean too. Small kitchen area to make some brownie. Overall, suited exactly what I needed and very reasonably priced ($40 for a single). Staff were friendly. Free WiFi too. I'd imagine in the winter there is a really fun vibe :)

We had dinner here on Saturday night, a fabulous chicken curry with roti and the most divine salmon and potatoes. Awesome service from efficient, friendly staff. Well done Blue Pub, keep up the great work - people will definitely travel for delicious, consistent food!

You literally sleep on top of a bar. We stayed a Saturday to Sunday and I guess that drops the grade from us. Live music to 2 in the night and when we got to our car in the morning someone had written obscene statements all over our car! When I asked the staff for something to wash it of...

That doesn't sound like a nice experience, sorry to hear some idiot decided to write on your car! We do indeed have regular live music but on all our booking channels we do recommend that you check our online gig guides prior to booking as live music can carry upstairs. Most people do come here to party, however we have...

The Blue Pub is right in the centre of Methven,and is a well known "watering hole" for locals and visitors.

We were very surprised and disappointed to read this review. I personally met with our housekeeper regarding your comment about the towels. She was absolutely gutted as she takes her job very seriously and has high standards. We went into several rooms to check the towels and all were spotless and smelt good. We have taken note of your comment...
