  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We enjoyed the lovely quiet location which is surrounded by beautiful countryside. It is handy to the small community of Waipiata and other places like Ranfurly and Naseby. We could watch rail trailers bike past just across the road. A great place to get away, switch off and relax. We enjoyed a reasonably priced tea with the friendly locals across the road in the beer garden of the Waipiata Hotel. We also saw the sled dogs just down the road and had fun learning to curl and lunch at the Black Forest cafe in Naseby. Can't wait to go back and explore more of the area. Great spot, lovely facilities and Debbie was such a welcoming and friendly host.

It was an ideal stopover for 1 person between Queenstown and Dunedin. Very welcoming hosts and lovely fresh linen. :)
