About Us

Gary and Karen welcome you to the Becks White Horse Hotel. We are the owner/operators of this slice of Central Otago's rich history, and pride ourselves on our excellent hospitality and “just like home” atmosphere.

Our hotel was built in 1925 and with our central location we are an ideal base to explore from. Just across the road is the original hotel (circa 1864) that you can wander through as part of the local heritage trail.

The Otago Central Rail trail is only 8 minutes drive away, and if you are staying in Lauder we offer free pick -up so that you can enjoy our off-trail dining experience. With 7 bedrooms we can cater for up to 17 guests and family groups are welcome. Our facilities include :

  • 3 outdoor areas
  • Guest lounge
  • Dining room
  • Sky tv
  • Pool table & darts
  • Guest laundry

Relax in the bar, chat with the locals and check out our whisky memorabilia then wander through to the dining room for great food and a collection of unusual antiquities that will have you stepping back in time.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our magical scenery.
