Victorian Elegance in the Heart of Historic Kumara


Awarded 2015 Tripadvisor certificate of excellence. A direct result of having consistently great reviews from TripAdvisor travellers.

Come spoil yourself at the Theatre Royal Hotel, the West Coast`s only restored miners’ hotel, and once world-renowned theatre. We are proud to have been chosen by Dominion Breweries as one of the 15 New Zealand classic historical hotels and the only one in the South Island.

Whether you are a history buff, an intrepid explorer, a Kiwi neighbour, a discerning traveller, fun-loving or a fun lover, the Theatre Royal knows how to look after you! If you are travelling along the West Coast Wilderness cycle trail Kumara is the perfect place to base yourself. Shuttles for cyclists can be arranged via Wilderness Trail Shuttle.

This lovingly restored gold rush Hotel features six themed ensuite rooms. Each room is unique, with its blend of Victorian decor, antique furnishings, yet with all modern amenities. The hotel offers your favourite West Coast brewed beers, as well as a fine selection of wines and spirits, a restaurant and cafe.

We invite you to come and discover the colourful past of Kumara, which featured the Last Great Gold Rush and was the home of N.Z.’s longest serving Premier, Richard John Seddon.
