About us

Visit our great country pub in Western Southland

The Otautau Hotel in Western Southland is a true country pub. The Otautau Hotel offers you real southern hospitality. The pub provides a wide range of facilities and services as well as homely and affordable accommodation. A good country pub has to be welcoming and comfortable. It should cater for the local community, but also be a place where visitors want to come and where they are welcomed as if they were locals too. It has to provide an environment where you’ll not only feel welcome, but you will enjoy a fantastic southern feed and some great customer service with it.


Cleanliness, comfort and presentation are important to the team at the Otautau Hotel. They strive to provide a place that their customers can be proud to meet their mates at or bring their families to.  

Great location

Otautau is in the heart of Western Southland, and has a population of about 800 people. The town, about 50km from Invercargill, is the core of a farming community which was once dominated by sheep farmers and is now home to a number of dairy farmers as well.

There’s no doubt the Otautau Hotel is a hub for the local community, regardless of what animals they farm. The team at Otautau Hotel makes sure it caters for everyone, from families with young children to regular locals, as well as sports teams, community organisations, and visitors from far and wide.
