We are nestled in a lovely, peaceful location in the heart of the small village of Omakau, between the historic buildings of the Bank of New Zealand on one side and the Omakau Post Office on the other.

We are easy to find at 5 Harvey Street, just 100 metres from the Otago Central Rail Trail – named one of New Zealand’s favourite places to ride – so we are the ideal place to stay when walking or cycling the rail trail.

If you are travelling along the Central Otago Rail Trail, turn into Harvey Street which is adjacent to the Omakau School and we are about 100 metres down on your right. [You cross Harvey Street on the trail so if you get to the old Rail Station and rail trail passport stamp box, you’ve gone about 200m too far and need to double back to the road]


If you’re travelling by road, rather than rail trail, turn off the main street (Leask or Wilson Streets / SH85) by the Omakau Commercial Hotel and we are located on your left.


Approximate travel times (by road):

Check-In time:

Between 2pm & 6pm. If you are going to be later than 6pm, please phone me on (03) 447 3560 or 021 929 267.

If you are riding the trail (booked through a Rail Trail provider), your bags are usually dropped off to us before 2pm, so will be waiting for you when you arrive.


Check-Out time:

10am – you’ll want to get back on the trail sooner rather than later, but a later check-out of a studio room should be OK as long as you let us know when you check-in.

If you have booked through a Rail Trail provider, they will set a time that your bags have to be ready for pickup from the front office. This is usually around 9am, so even if you want to leave a bit later than this, you’ll still need to have bags packed and ready to go earlier.


Pet Policy:

For the comfort of other and future guests we have a strict “no pets in the rooms” policy.
