This really is a special and well-presented place to stay. Lyne and Barry put in the work to keep the enormous guest quarters welcoming, and are often nearby in their premises with some trademark Kiwi hospitality. Whether you are two people keen to make the best of the giant kitchen, or a bigger group wanting to spread out over the... More

Such a cool place to stay. Friendly owners and dogs. Really cleverly converted place. Really clean. Well laid out and the excellent Post Office only 2 mins walk where you can eat well and serving food all day. So if you want to stay in place with character in spade fulls, then this is for you. It was raining so... More

We were a group of 8 who had the pleasure staying in this quirky, interesting and most importantly comfortable place. The workshops were perfect for our eclectic mix of friends/couples etc, but the icing on the cake has to be Lyne & Barry. Their friendliness and nothing is to much trouble attitude really did make the difference. Lyne cleaned the... More

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
