We were able to do a big load of washing for free- another bonus! Breakfast was totally adequate and available early. The Lodge is only a short walk to the Art Deco parts of Ranfurly,... More

After two hot days on the Otago rail trail, this motel was a lovely relaxing overnight stop. It offered bike storage, laundry facilities and a luxurious spa, all as part of the price - and all these things were really appreciated!

Stayed here whilst cycling the rail trail, big comfy beds, spacious room which was clean and tidy. They did a good continental breakfast spread. Helpful friendly staff, bike storage and a hot tub to ease your aching muscles!

We arrived early but it was no trouble for the managers as they already had our room ready. A nice, spacious, clean room with a much appreciated Spa Bath after riding the Rail Trail. Breakfast was included and was fresh and ready for us as we had an early start. It was great talking to the manager who was very... More

This motel is located in the quaint little town of Ranfurly right next to the Otago Central Rail Trail. It has been specifically set up with cyclist in mind. It has a bike room to safely store your bike at night and also has two common rooms, one with an 8 person spa.

We were passing through Ranfurly on our way to Queenstown. The day we were there was so windy, it almost took the car door off. Ranfurly is a very small town, not much there, so the Hawkdun was a welcome oasis. We were greeted by Richard who showed us straight to our unit. The room was a good size, heated... More

Beautifully clean and well appointed spacious rooms with a great spa room to soak the trail bruises away. Ranfurly hotel meal was very nice. Quiet and excellent sleep close to the trail. Bike storage and breakfast room with basic continental.

What a lovely surprise! Have travelled for a few days around Central Otago, the accomodation at Hawdun Lodge would have to be the best so far! Such a treasure ! We chose the Studio Spa Unit - a must for any couple passing through. Thanks Richard for the amazing service you provide.
