The Catlins Inn is just off the town’s main junction in Owaka, but our signage will direct you to the team at our warm & friendly Country Hotel just one block away from the main thoroughfare.

The Catlins Inn offers a friendly sports bar with a TAB machine, gaming machines, pool table, dart board plus easy listening background music for your entertainment. We also have a convenience bottle store with a great selection of takeaway liquor products and Ryley's Cafe, which offers excellent country bistro fare at affordable prices.

Our accommodation offers three (3) modern studio units, and a 3 bed-roomed suite, which are all serviced daily. We also have a campervan park at the rear of the hotel with powered sites on enquiry.

If you're planning a small function and/or meeting for up to 45 people we also have a medium sized lounge that can accommodate your group comfortably, just a little distance from the main bar.

So if you're heading to the picturesque Catlins area, then call in for a cold beer, wine etc a meal and/or stay a night or two at Catlins Inn.
