Justy on the edge of town and a convenient walk back in. Nice modern rooms with a fridge and kitchenette area and good bathroom. The breakfast is taken at a lovely room on the other side of the quad in a bright room with big TV and is served by a nice lady who made toast and organised the cereals... More

We stayed there during our Otago Rail Trail journey, the staff were wonderful. Breakfast was very good with home made preserves and plenty of options. Beds were comfortable, great storage for the bikes, free laundry service. Would fully recommend it. Great location and Ranfurly is very quaint

This nice clean and comfortable accomodation rates as one of our rail trail highlights. We were welcomed by the owner on arrival. (In fact all the staff were friendly and wentout of their way to meet ones needs.) There was a purpose built bike room to store our bikes in out of the weather. The communal breakfast was just something... More

Our rail trail partner booked this accommodation for us and it was wonderful! The lodge is easy to find just off the rail trail and when we arrived the service was great. Our host explained where to store our bikes, showed us our room and explained some of the facilities - it has a spa! Our room was large with... More

Everything was modern clean and tidy, it was lovely to be able to spread out and relax in such an awesome room. Free use of a... More

Stayed here for 1 night on way to Queenstown for a short break. Room clean and spacious with huge bathroom. Hosts were very helpful with local knowledge. Only bad thing was no privacy as all units face on to car park but would definitely stay here again.

Hi there Thank you for your feedback. I understand your comments re privacy. Our windows are tinted which makes it difficult for people outside to see into the unit. However, to ensure our guests do feel comfortable we are in the process of installing voiles (light weight curtains for privacy) in the units. So thanks again for your comments and... More

What a lovely place to arrive at after a long ride! Huge, spacious room, massively comfortable bed. A spa- what a delight for tired muscles! 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!
