Rail trail stopover, couldn't be better. Clean, warm, relaxing with fantastic hosts who made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend to anyone passing thought Lauder. The pub across the road has a good meal and devine central Otago Pinot Noir. Peter & Jan Brown

Awesome service. Bruce was so helpful. Great bed, slept like a log and good breakfast. Will definitely be back if in the area. The pub across the road is also worth a visit for great food and wine with friendly service.

I had the pleasure to stay in the "old store" whilst cycling the Otago Rail Trail. The accommodation is comfortable, tidy, warm (essential) and the owners put on a great breakfast spread the next morning. We were warmly greeted and taken care of whilst we stayed and were further assisted with our planning of events for that evening and the...

I'm not sure how long ago this was the village store, any resemblance besides the frontage is long gone. What's behind the facade are 5 nicely appointed rooms. Beware only one is ensuing, so if that's important to you book well ahead. There is a full kitchen and very comfortable lounges. The only downside I would say is, there is...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome back anytime. We wanted to say there are five bedrooms in the main house with access to three bathrooms and three toilets. When the the fifth room is booked as an ensuite there are two bathrooms for the four bedrooms and two toilets, one being just outside the main...

I was cycling the Otago Rail trail on my own from Middlemarch to Clyde On day two I got to the oterahura pub at 2pm after battling strong head winds all way. I was not really ready to give up for the day so asked them if there was accomodation at Lauder. "I don't know" was the answer I got...

Fabulous first night stay on the Rail Trail - bed and breakfast with ensuite facilities that were a very welcome retreat after a day of battling the wind. The spa pool was certainly a bonus and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. We slept well in the comfort of great facilities and were refreshed for our next biking day,...

An oasis after our first days ride! Gorgeous, cosy and well designed unit. The hosts were friendly, helpful and welcoming. We were supplied with all we needed plus some thoughtful extras. This was our favourite accommadation on the rail trail. The pub opposite is perfect for dinner.

This place was amazing, beer in the fridge, cake on the table. Accommodation was fabulous. Spa was awesome and the owners most accommodating. This is a must visit while on the rail trail or even a country retreat for a few days
