Cardrona Hotel for sale

5:12 pm on 9 July 2010

One of the country's best known hotels is up for sale.

The Cardrona Hotel, near Wanaka, which has provided backdrops for many wedding photos and holiday snaps, is now up for tender.

The historic hotel was built in 1863 and property company Colliers International says it is one of the few buildings from the Otago gold-rush days still occupied.

Peter and Vicki Byrne have owned the hotel for six years.
