“RUSTIC COUNTRY HOTEL” Is a two storey historic Hotel built in 1878 from local timbers milled nearby; it is located on the corner of Main Street & Commercial Road at the top end of the Oxford Township.
It was originally named the "Commercial Hotel" as is visible in our historic photos and was known as one of Canterbury’s finest when built in 1878. We are restoring it as time allows. It is the only remaining Hotel of four from the era; its nic name was the "West Oxford" due to its location at the west end of the town, with Oxford being so spread out there were two Train Stations named the East & the West. We are on the main road and easily accessible from all directions, located North - West of Christchurch about 40 minutes easy drive on the “Inland Scenic Highway 72”.
