A former Frankton funeral parlour’s been brought back to life for much-needed Queenstown worker accommodation.

Opposite the Frankton Village shopping centre, the building (pictured) has been leased to local bus operator Ritchies, which has blamed a driver shortage on the lack of local rental housing.

It’s understood the one-time funeral home nowadays has up to 10 bedrooms.

A number of foreign flags adorn the front of the building, which has ample carparking.

Ironically, the property, which has a capital value of $1.5 million, was last year bought by an Auckland company called God Save The Flag Ltd.

Mountain Scene’s awaiting a response from Ritchies, which is taking a funereal amount of time to respond.
