Whatever the occasion, Cavells Cafe and Bar in Arthurs Point (next to the Shotover Jet) is ideal


Situated overlooking the Shotover River in Arthurs Point next to the Shotover Jet and rafting base, Cavells is a short 5 minute journey from downtown Queenstown.


Cavells Café and Bar has seating for up to 50 people, although with a buffet option (breakfast or evening dining) and comfortable standing capacity is 100 as there is ample room in the garden area.


Start your conference or group with a breakfast somewhere different: choose from a simple continental style breakfast or Kiwi-Style hearty cooked breakfast.
