Thank you very much for taking the time to review my property. It is always heartwarming to hear that my cooking and coffee was appreciated. Euan
We would highly recommend Hartleys. Euan is a fantastic host, kind and inviting, helping us to make the House our own. From his dinner recommendations coming through via email the month before we arrived (to make sure we booked in advance for the very popular Olivers), to the homemade cooked breakfast on Saturday morning, we were impressed with every part of our stay. The House is warm and comforting, and his dog is just gorgeous. The extra touches of bathrobes and recommendations on where to go for an afternoon walk were above and beyond. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hartleys to anyone travelling in Clyde and wanting a unique experience.
Thanks for taking the time to write your lovely review, I hope Jazz didn't make to much fuss when you had your breakfast.
No mean feat, being outstanding in Clyde. It's a town full of very, very good hospitality. But this charming small establishment really manages to nail it. I could wax lyrical about any manner of accommodation details but really, it is always down to the host. And the host, Euan, is great. Just read the other reviews - it's all there.
That is what makes Central Otago unique. It is a quintessential South Island experience offered by those who know it best - people who live and love their part of the world and offer it proudly and with hugely generous spirit. Euan, (a refugee from the North Island he admits!) epitomises that spirit. A wonderful experience. Book immediately.
Thank you Sally for your sweet review. Hopefully I'll see you back here when you decide to do the full Rail Trail.
Ewan was a great host, very welcoming the room was well appointed
with everything well catered for. The home is on a large section which
is so quiet with the windows wide open it was so peaceful. We were
served a cooked breakfast over Ewans breakfast bar as he cooked and
we chatted, a very tasy start to the day. a lovely personal stay
I appreciate you taking the the time to write your lovely review. Chatting to my guests is my favorite part of the day.
Visited here before journeying to Middlemarch along the Otago Rail Trail. I stayed here an extra night to spend time cycling along the Clutha River and partake in the odd wine tasting. Top tip, research and get appointments at Vineyards that don't have an open door or are out of season. Clyde has a understated beauty that matches Arrowtown less the tourist traffic.
The homestead is run by Euan, an energetic and very relaxed Kiwi, who has a gentle, friendly approach to hosting guests. It is peacefully situated opposite the river and allows you the space just to be and the opportunity to be more adventurous. I will return and spend more of my precious holiday time here.
Many thanks Euan and has English Springer, Jazz.
Thanks Mark for your review. I hope you got to taste some spectacular IPA's on your ride.
We had a wonderful stay with Euan who provided great advice on the local township, an excellent Rose looking out over the Clutha River and fabulous breakfast. Definitely try his home made Apricot jam and Plum and Lavender Jam. It was awesome.
This was such a great place to stay after doing the Rail Trail.
I'm glade you enjoyed your time at Hartley Homestead. Thank you very much for your great review.
