Otago central rail trail accommodation
Day two on our rail trail adventure and we were booked into Inverlair Lodge for our overnight stay. We walked into a wonderful lounge dining area with landscape views to the distant mountains.
Our hosts Kathy and Tony were onsite for instructions and assistance. We were soon provided with cheese platters and set up a bar tab. The boys were a bit sore and used the jacuzzi to ease their aches.
Breakfast was delicious, and again Kathy and Tony provided a cooked meal and barista coffee if required.
The welcoming rooms each had a large en-suite with extra towels for the bathers.
Our overnight stay was too short and as a group we agreed a return visit was on the cards- with or without cycling!
A useful bonus was onsite eftpos facilities to pay for our extras and bar tab.
Kathy and Tony were warm and welcoming, and the lodge was very clean and comfortable.
If in a large group make sure you take advantage of Kathy and Tony’s cooking as you can pre order meals if required.

Perfect Place to Stay
Absolutely recommend this as ideal place to stay. Our group of 6 couples booked out all the accommodation & enjoyed the great common area as well the outdoor spa. Tony & Kathy are lovely hosts & can provide a good insight into the local area. The quirky pub down the road also provides a hearty dinner.

Otago Rail Trail stopover
We spent a night at Inverlair Lodge in the middle of our Rail Trail cycling trip. Inverlair Lodge is right on the trail. There is a wonderful view across the trail and surrounding countryside from the terrace and the very spacious living rooms. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and the shower is awesome! The lodge looks as if it is new, and is perfectly designed for this kind of stop over. It is within walking distance of the pub - another plus!

Great rooms, service, very clean and kitchen is well stocked
Tony the host was very helpful and friendly. Rooms clean, comfy and very spacious. Outdoor area to sit and soak up the spectacular views was great. Also an outdoor spa to soak the weary muscles. Large areas for all guests to mingle or not.

This was a highlight of our Otago Rail Trail. The hosts were friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. The facilities were superb and immaculate.
The views and location are breathtaking and the spa an ideal place to rest our weary muscles.

Otago Rail Trail stop over
Wow is all we can say. Tony and Kathy are amazing hosts, making us feel as though the beautiful accommodation was home.
The food provided was top quality and delicious and the wine list was of a good selection and reasonably priced.
The spa pool was a bonus, such a treat looking out onto the mountains after a long day on the bikes.
The accommodation itself is modern, immaculate and luxurious.
We will be back!

A Great Place to Stay.
For the third year running decided to make Inverlair Lodge our base for riding the Otago Rail Trail and stayed for five nights.
As always everything was very well presented, and the new owners Cathy and Tony were welcoming and attentive. They went out of their way to ensure our expectations were met.
We would recommend staying for a while, as there is a great deal to do and see in the area, and it makes a great base for cycling in either direction depending on conditions.
We are planning another visit shortly.

The room and shared spaces were so comfortable, the spa was the perfect thing after a day on the rail trail. There is enough space to be social if you feel like it, or have quiet time alone, if that suits you better. Hosts were welcoming and accomodating. Would definitely recommend it and would come again.
