On the shores of Lake Onoke with breathtaking views of the Rimutaka Range and the South Island over Palliser Bay, the Lake Ferry Hotel brings together both local residents and foreign tourists who together share in the warm ambience of the historical hotel.

Lake Ferry Hotel has a full restaurant as well as a bar snack menu available for those looking for a lighter meal. Coffee and cafe style food available also.

Only an hour and a half from Wellington by car and close to the cosmopolitan wine area of Martinborough and the sights of Palliser Bay.

Palliser Bay attractions include a well-established fur seal colony, the century-old Cape Palliser lighthouse and the grey soft-rock spires of the Putangirua Pinnacles briefly featured in Lord of the Rings. The most popular recreational activity in the area is fishing with many locals and visitors on the beach surfcasting or between August and November, netting delicious whitebait.
