Coasters Pass

Victorian elegance in the heart of historic Kumara

Your accommodation on the West Coast Wilderness Trail

This week’s Coaster’s Pass takes you to historic Kumara and the fabulous Theatre Royal Hotel. 

The Hotel is the West Coast’s only fully-restored gold miners’ hotel; and in a former life it was a world-renowned theatre. And it is on the West Coast Wilderness Trail route, so it is ideally suited to provide you with the best accommodation on your West Coast adventure.

Our historic gold rush hotel features six themed ensuite-rooms. Each room is quite unique, with its blend of Victorian decor, antique furnishings and modern amenities.  Whether you are a history buff, an intrepid explorer, a Kiwi neighbour, a discerning traveler, or just a plain fun lover, the Theatre Royal Hotel knows how to look after you!

We invite you to come and discover Kumara’s colourful past, which included NZ’s last great gold rush and was the home of the country’s longest serving Premier, Richard John Seddon.

Not only is Theatre Royal Hotel on the West Coast Wilderness Trail, but it can also offer you accommodation for the Wild Foods Festival in March:
