The Hurunui Hotel, Closure Hopefully Temporary…

The Hurunui Hotel, where we have previously on other trips enjoyed lunch, had been damaged by the Christchurch 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, but not at all seriously. The Kaikoura quakes of November 2016 however have been an entirely different story, and to our dismay the building is now not even safe to enter. The hotel is therefore closed for business and we didn’t know anyone who knew what it’s future would be. As a heritage building I hope that the owners get help as soon as possible from the Hurunui District Council or Government to bring it back to its former glory. I hope to bring better news about this wonderful building at some future date.
