Once the largest gold-mining town on the Maniototo, permanent residents now number round 150. This swells to upwards of 3000 in summer, as holidaymakers enjoy the tranquil delights of this corner of the Maniototo.

The Ancient Briton Hotel is located on Leven Street, Naseby and is in the village centre with historic hotels, museums, shop and restaurant.

Most activities in Naseby are a short walk, bike or drive from the Hotel.
