Historic Hotel

Duvauchelle Hotel, April 2008. Ajr.

The old Hotel Devauchelle sits beside the main road in the little harbourside settlement of Devauchelle on Banks Peninsular. You pass it on the way to Akaroa. It claims to be the oldest hotel in New Zealand. I can’t be sure of that; others have claimed the same thing. But as its licence was issued before 1850 and a hotel has traded on the site ever since, it’s certainly among the frontrunners for the title. www.duvauchellehotel.co.nz
