WELCOME to Western House Bed & Breakfast


Hazel and John welcome you to the historic Western House Bed and Breakfast, located in Kurow, New Zealand.

Western Inn was established in 1861 to cater for those going to and from the goldfields.  It was an overnight stop for stagecoaches and later became a hotel before reverting back to the now private home and bed and breakfast.  This historic property has many significant associations with the area.

Western House has accommodation within the house on two levels and a private studio next to the house, with its own ensuite and private deck.  The guest area is completely independent from your hosts' living quarters, ensuring your peace and privacy.  Guests have full use of their bedroom, the upstairs, dining room and lounge downstairs.  Breakfast is a choice of cereals, fruit and toast or a full cooked breakfast.  There are facilities to make tea and coffee in the dining room at your leisure.  Dinner is available at Western House by prior arrangement.

The lounge features a luxurious leather lounge suite and on cold winter evenings the open fires are lit to add warmth and ambience to the cozy atmosphere.

We provide plenty of off street parking for vehicles.

Come, relax and feel at peace in our rural tranquil setting.
