Don’t just take our word, see below what guests have to say about Maniototo Lodge!


We are very pleased to have received this review from Vacations and Travel Magazine. This will be featuring in the July, August September 2017 issue. Thank you Helen Hayes.

Thank you Maniototo Lodge for making our stay so welcoming. From the great room, to the home baked carrot cake and “here are the keys to drive to the pub” it was a pleasure to spend time with you. We were walking the trail and a spa at the end of the day was just the recipe. I highly recommend the lodge for travellers its a great place to stay. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Great ambassadors for New Zealand.

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.


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