We had driven from Queenstown without a plan for accomodation & ended up in Ranfurley. Considering we had no booking we were very well looked after. The acxomodation was very clean & tidy, the beds were exceptionally comfortable. Good value breakfast. Pleasant obliging hosts. If we are in the area again we would make this a stop. Recommend

Looking for some where nice in Ranfurly to stay ,the Hawkdun Lodge is great ,Ideal for a small group or couples or family. Meals can be catered for if you have your own group in a separate lounge/dining room. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Simply cannot fault this excellent establishment ... from the underfloor warmth in the bathroom to the eye for detail in room preparation ... we did like the idea of a common lounge to meet with other guests, in addition to room accommodation ... considering the proximity of the otago rail trail. Staff were extremely helpful and enjoyed continental breakfast.

We stayed after a long bike ride and were shattered. Our room was large and well appointed. The spa bathtub was the most amazing treat after our journey. Richard our host has lots of local knowledge and was very encouraging about the next days ride. Highly recommended !

Cycle Surgery booked this accommodation for us and we weren't disappointed. The room, more like an apartment, was very well appointed, large with a sitting area and ensuite with underfloor heating. Coffee and tea making was provided. The room was spotless. The owner (Richard?) was very helpful and a pleasure to talk to. He provides a secure bike room and... More

Laundry facilities were very good. The breakfast/lounge room is a nice touch and the continental breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We recommended this motel to another couple who have... More

This is one of the best motels I have stayed at - new, fresh, clean, spacious and with a continental breakfast thrown in. I was not on the Rail Trail but I would think this would be an excellent place to unwind, relax and spend some time in the spa. Would definitely stay there again.

This place appears very new and modern. Everything is well set up and spotless.There is plenty of space in the bathroom and it was kept very clean. The Lodge itself can be seen from the Rail Trail and everything in Ranfurly is within walking distance. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was also very good.
