About us

The Countrytime Hotel offers affordable accommodation in beautiful Omarama in New Zealand’s amazing South Island.

The country-style hotel has 48 rooms and a restaurant with gorgeous mountain views. The hotel bar, decorated to resemble a traditional sheep shearing shed, serves wine and beer from the local area.

The Countrytime is an ideal base to enjoy nearby activities like cycling the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, exploring the Clay Cliffs, walking or fishing the Ahuriri Conservation Area, stargazing, hot tubs, skiing at Ōhau Snow Fields, and boating, fishing and swimming at Lake Benmore. The hotel is a 4-hour drive from Christchurch, a 2-hour drive from Queenstown, and a 1-hour drive to Aoraki Mount Cook or Lake Tekapo.
