My wife and I stayed at the Old Doctor's Residence in Naseby while cycling the Central Otago Rail Trail with another couple, and to say it lived up to its reviews would be an understatement. Jan and Grant were friendly, helpful and charming hosts and by the time we left after a two-night stay we were already talking about a... More

Dear Glenn (and travelling companions!) Thank you so much for your wonderful review of The Old Doctors Residence. We did enjoy having you all to stay and of course would welcome a return visit any time. Naseby is particularly pretty at the moment as it is bathed in a cloak of autumn colours - i think that means we have... More

What a stunning place to stay in a beautiful part of the country. The Old Doctors Residence was stunning and luxurious in every way with beds to die for. Jan and Grant were suburb hosts. They went out of their way to ensure we were looked after in every way. Grant even gave us curling instructions. Jan's cooking was amazing.... More

Jan and Grant are wonderful hosts - we arrived after a days cycling on the Rail Trail. Naseby is a little out of the way, but a little gem worth finding. The Residence is full of charm, and the personal attention is just right. Drinks before dinner and superb breakfast the next morning! I would recommend that anyone on the... More

We spent two nights here while doing the rail trail. Jan & Grant were the most amazing hosts. We felt very much at home here. They have lovingly restored this beautiful house. Jan & Grant make your stay very special from sharing glass of wine & all the chats, to having home made fudge in your room, coming back to... More

The entire experience of staying with Jan and Grant was top class. Thank... More

Jan and Grant have two rooms - one is large and sumptuous and the other less so, but nevertheless both are comfortable and the linen etc is beautiful. Lighting in the second room is poor and the bathroom is not en suite, but in the scheme of things, that hardly matters as the house is delightful and the hosts are... More

Arriving with cold NZ weather, we felt your warmth immediately at arrival. The beautiful diner and wines, the nice conversation about art and other beauties in life. We loved the Naseby historytour with Grant and the breakfast was to die for. Many thanks Jan and Grant and all the best. We highly recommend this B&B. Michel and Danielle

Lovely room, bathroom, & ante room. Very nice guest lounge. Beautifully decorated & furnished. Really enjoyed the evening wine tasting and superb breakfast with Jan & Grant. Highly recommend - we have stayed at B&Bs in a few countries and this is one of the best!

Was doing the otago rail trail. Stayed here two days in the middle of our journey. Great place and plenty to do. Learned lots of local knowledge. Wine tastings each night and the best breakfasts of our whole trip. Authentic and not to be missed.
