Winter 2018 Renovation Notice:

Due to unforeseen circumstances during a re-construction program our Food and Beverage offerings will be running from the Chamois Bar and Grill until 28 June 2018.  The Chamois bar & Grill is located at the nearby Mt Cook Lodge and Motels and we will be running a complimentary Shuttle Service from the Aoraki Lobby.   If you have any questions, please contact our Reservations Team on reservations@hermitage.co.nz.

Please also note our main ground floor lobby, activities desk, Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre and Café are also closed over this period and our reception and activities desk will be operating from the Aoraki Lobby, accessible at the back of the hotel until 28 June 2018.  Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

From the 29 June until late Spring all our Food and Beverage will be held in our Sir Edmund Hillary Cafe & Bar with the Alpine Restaurant, Snowline Bar and Panorama Room closed during this time.

We are pleased to offer the following Food & Beverage options in our Sir Edmund Hillary Café & Bar over this period:

  • Buffet breakfast available from 7am - 10am
  • Buffet Lunch available from 12 noon - 2pm
  • Buffet dinner available from 6pm - 9pm
  • Café menu available from 10am until 4pm
  • A la carte menu available from 6pm - 9pm (bookings recommended)
  • The Cafe Bar is open for bar snacks and drinks from 5.30pm until late.

The Chamois Bar (located at the Mt Cook Lodge & Motels) is open with a shuttle running between the two properties from 5pm until 10.30pm (times will be flexible depending on demand).

The Panorama Room, our signature a la carte restaurant, opened in 1969.

A simple philosophy of using just the freshest, local ingredients, in particular from New Zealand's South Island, is still the secret to our success today. Our menu has a strong international influence which reflects our clientele's taste.

Fropm 19th October 2018, the Panorama Room is open daily for dinner from 6.00pm, reservations from 6.00pm to 9.30pm (seasonal hours may apply). Due to high demand, reservations are essential.
