Try our excellent food, either in the Restaurant, outside on the verandah or just pull up a stool at the bar and enjoy the friendly atmosphere. Our upstairs accommodation is easy, convenient and warm. All our existing rooms have had a facelift and there's a great verandah for guest use with stunning views of the Southern Alps.

We also offer facilities for functions and conferences in Samuels Summit Bar. With the capacity to seat up to 100 people, it's a great choice for your next occasion. We can provide a wide range of different menus for functions - from nibbles and savouries, right through to buffets and plated meals.

The Blue likes to think that it's one of Canterbury's major live venues for music and many renowned artists have played here. We offer the main bar as a venue and also Samuels Bar for the bigger touring bands. Click here for the latest gig guide.
