Like others before this was our first stop on our rail trail cycle tour. We were warmly greeted and made to feel welcome. Our rooms were spacious with good heating, hanging space and comfy beds. The shared living areas were great with a couple of separate areas. The heater was turned on as the sun set and thus was a...

We rode the Rail Trail independently. It was very easy to organise accomodation with Gwenyth by email. We stayed in Kilarney cottage which was well set up and very comfortable. Highly recommend this place.

This was a great place to stay on the rail trail. Gwenyth came over to meet us and check we had made dinner arrangements as it was Easter and busy. She had thought of extras like having cold beer and wine to top the day off and the hot tub was nice after the first day of cycling. Good variety...

Had the best two night stay at Wilson's. The house was fully equipped with everything we could have wanted and it was clean, neat and tidy. Close to the rail trail for a walk if you didn't bring a bike. The host, Andrea, was great and checked in to make sure everything was perfect and re-stock breakfast supplies. Highly recommend...

We loved staying at Tiger Hill Lodge. It was our first night at the Otago Rail Trail, and we has no idea what to expect. We were pleased to find out that the lodge was located literally next to the Trail, we pretty much drove straight into it, as we reached Omakau. The owners were great and very welcoming. The...

Right off the rail trail with stunning views of the Dunstan ranges, you couldn't ask for more really! Lodge has everything you could want and need - plus some great extras like the hot tub! And the hosts are just awesome! Thanks for a wonderful visit.

This was our second night on the Otago Rail Trail and our favourite place to stay. It had been booked by our Australian travel agent through Trail Journeys and we were absolutely thrilled with it. The location, the house, the provisions, the hot tub, the owner dropping by - just everything was great!

“Do not get the room at the front. It has windows on 2 sides, which is nice, but everyone walks past. It is also by the front door.”

“The three large rooms all have great views and there own entrance and exit doors, so each room is just as good as the others.”
