Beautiful B&B and Carolyn is a fantastic host. Was our best night along the Otago Rail Trail.

Michael Chang

We thought this was the best accommodation we had on the Otago Central Rail trail. We were made very welcome by Caroline with wine and cheese in front of an open fire. Caroline is the lovely new owner. The building is beautiful, the rooms very generous and beautifully appointed and we even had a fire going in our room. Breakfast was excellent. We would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay at this excellent B&B.
