As I arrived after a day of biking my kids (who had already arrived well ahead of me) said "have you met lovely Mandy yet?" And yes 'lovely Mandy' has done a great job setting up this place and being a fantastic host. Such cool accommodation with the right set up for us all.

We arrived after a very hard days ride, and were welcomed and shown to our unit by Mandy. Friendly welcome, lovely comfy bed and good advice about where to eat and what to look out for in the area. Would've liked some "good old New Zealand butter" rather than the margarine with our breakfast toast, but all in all a... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I totally agree with the Butter comment, so after discussing it with other accommodation providers, we will be doing away with the Margarine and give the Butter a go. More

Stayed here overnight on our Otago Rail Trail cycling trip. Mandy was lovely and so helpful. Our room was like new, beautifully appointed and with our own little gated courtyard and even a bike stand. Beds were comfortable and room was spotless. Continental breakfast was very nice. All round a lovely place to stay.

This is a great choice for a place to stay while biking the Otago Rail Trail. It is easy to find next to the Omakau Hotel (world famous in NZ in the Speights ads). We were warmly greeted by Mandy's parents who made us very welcome. The room was beautifully furnished and more than comfortable with a lovely private deck... More

This was a really bright oasis after a long day of cycling. Beds were comfortable, bathroom well appointed, we felt relaxed and comfortable. Continental breakfast was quite adequate. We had our own fenced off deck area and our cycles were secure in there.

Nice little private cottages, with space to store your bikes (we were on the rail trail). Clean and tidy with modern decor, very friendly and helpful staff (thanks Mandy!) Breakfast included (eaten in your cottage as there is no communal area).

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
