The Cardrona Hotel was built in 1865 and is an awesome place to visit. We didn't stay but called in twice for morning tea on the drive over the Crown Range from Wanaka to Queenstown. The coffee was brilliant and the date scones are to die for. There is a nice garden bar out the back. Lots of history with photos etc around the hotel to look at. Include it on your list.
