This is an amazing place to stay. Loved the history and charactor of this converted Vincent County Truck Workshop. Lyne & Barry are superb hosts and made our stay so very enjoyable while we visited family.

Yes, this is a lovely place to stay in Clyde. Very friendly hosts. Open courtyard for guests to use, nicely decorated living room and open kitchen with all facilities. I stayed upstairs in a great bedroom with high ceilings. TV room with SKY TV. Ideal for families with children. Highly recommended if you intend to cycle the Otago bike trail.

We stayed here before heading off to do the rail trail. Lyne & Barry were lovely hosts, and let us leave our car for a few days. Being the low season we had the place to ourselves. It's really quirky but welcoming and comfy. We'd certainly recommend it.

We stayed at The Workshops for one night. The owner was great and very accommodating for us at short notice, we had called from the end of the drive to check if they had rooms available. The rooms were clean and spacious and it was a real advantage to have the kitchen, lounge and outdoor area available so that we... More

Only stayed for one night before embarking on the rail trail. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and their dogs also provided a great welcome. Comfortable room and very clean. The personality of the place is not lost with the conversion from an auto shop. Very close to the start of the trail, 4 square and the Post Office... More

We stayed here before starting the Otago Central Rail Trail. The place certainly has a lot of character, having been converted from some sort of truck workshop, with strange bits of metal here and there, but manages to be very comfortable anyway. Shared facilities, but we had the place to ourselves so didn't have to share with anyone else. We... More

This is uniquely different accomodation.The Workshops have been converted from a repair workshop into great accomodation. It is quirky and different from anything else we have stayed in during our travels. The rooms are spacious and although without on-suite the bathrooms are closeby and convenient. The lounge and kitchen areas are full of historical artifacts and local memorabilia, A continential... More
