Omakau Accommodation is of a very high standard and we had a very enjoyable night’s stay there while doing the Otago Central Rail Trail (booked through Cycle Surgery). Our group of 9 were booked into the Cottage (very spacious, ideal for a family), Jack’s Shed (compact but fine for a couple) and the Matakanui Room (just right for three people).... More

It was lovely to read you all had such an enjoyable nights stay and the rooms you had were well suited for your group. Thank you for your lovely comment regards the furnishings. Yes we are well positioned to all the amenities, as after a days cycling it is nice not to have to walk too far :) Thanks again... More

Mandy and her family have done a lot of work to this property and it shows! Her manner was welcoming and our room was clean and modern. The price included a continental breakfast which was more than enough. We are looking for an excuse to come back just to stay again!

Perfect to come to after a long day on the bikes in the cold and wet - Mandy had turned on the heaters, there was a really good shower, and she provided us with detailed local information about where we could grab dinner. The rooms were big and comfortable, breakfast was nicely done and we could have as much as... More

We arrived very wet & cold after our first day on the Rail Trail and Mandy was waiting for us with a warm welcome. She had put the heaters on in our rooms and offered us the use of the dryer. She also went down the road and organised dinner for us at the Commercial Hotel. Rooms were spotless, modern... More

Thanks Mandy. We were a little lost and you spotted us and showed us the lodgings for the night. Cycle Surgery booked this for us. Clean comfortable and perfect for the trail. Omakau is a great place. The people in the shops and pub were very friendly. We must come again.

"Omakau Accommodation" once being the old Drapery Store with it's original shop frontage, sometimes not always first noticed as an accommodation complex!! But happy to read you enjoyed your stay with us and also our lovely town. Look forward to seeing you all again. More

Wow what a lovely experience, from the moment we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome. The accommodation rooms were very clean and quiet. Walking distance to the supermarket and next door to the Hotel, where we were booked in for an evening meal. Thanks Mandy!!!

My husband and I were part of the Slow Spokes group that stayed at Omakau Accommodation recently while biking the Otago Rail Trail. Our hostess, Mandy, warmly greeted us at the end of our first long day on the trail and showed us to well appointed, clean, comfortable rooms. She had organised the group so that two couples each had... More

Thanks "Slow Spokes" (Great name :) for your lovely feedback. I agree for larger groups like yourselves, the house as well as the Ensuite units does seem to work in well together. So I'm happy to read this was the case for you. More

We stayed overnight on our second and last night while cycling the rail trail. Mandy was very welcoming and the rooms were beautiful and very spacious. Although located in the heart of Omakau (right next to the Commercial Hotel - a great spot for dinner) the rooms themselves were tucked away at the back of the building and very quiet.... More

We stayed in Jack's shed and what a lovely place,a credit to Mandy and family. Clean and welcoming. What a great hostess Mandy is, she even lent us her car so we could drive to Ophir. We will recomend Omakau Accommodation to all our friends. Warren and Heather Spencer.
