We overnighted here in a nice little free-standing cottage while biking the Otago Central Rail Trail. There was a secluded little courtyard where we could enjoy a glass of Sauvignon Blanc (purchased from the local Four Square store). We lacked nothing. Friendly owner!

Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at our accommodation and lacked for nothing. I would appreciate if you could contact me at mandy@omakau-accommodation.co.nz to tell me how we could improve our guest’s stay, as your rating would suggest it didn’t meet your expectations, and as you will see...

We stayed at Omakau Accommodation in 'Jack's Shed' a standalone and fenced, ensuited studio. The studio was cosy and comfortable and very clean. We had a lovely night's sleep. Mandy was very down-to-earth and kind. She catered well for my partner who is gluten-free, ensuring he had a good breakfast the next morning. I really appreciate the story behind Jack's...

This is a great place to stay while on the rail trail or even driving through. Really nicely appointed rooms. Very tidy and immaculate. Mandy is a fantastic host and explains everything about the area well. 50m to the tavern for a good country meals highly recommended

After facing a head wind for most of the trail, this was a very welcome sight. Mandy was there to greet us with a warm smile and a lovely room. Looked like rain, and we were even provided with a bike seat rain cover. (This little thing 'made my day'.) Overall, very happy with everything on offer.

What a little gem to find in Omakau. We stayed at Jacks Shed - the most gorgeous well appointed cottage for one of our nights whilst cycling the Otago Rail Trail.

Omakau Accommodation has a variety of room sizes ranging from studios for couples to a three bedroom house for families. Mandy, the owner of Omakau Accommodation, couldn't have been nicer, and was very helpful at directing us to the attractions of the region. She has paid fantastic attention to detail in decorating her rooms, and they are warm and welcoming....

As I arrived after a day of biking my kids (who had already arrived well ahead of me) said "have you met lovely Mandy yet?" And yes 'lovely Mandy' has done a great job setting up this place and being a fantastic host. Such cool accommodation with the right set up for us all.

We arrived after a very hard days ride, and were welcomed and shown to our unit by Mandy. Friendly welcome, lovely comfy bed and good advice about where to eat and what to look out for in the area.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I totally agree with the Butter comment, so after discussing it with other accommodation providers, we will be doing away with the Margarine and give the Butter a go.

Stayed here overnight on our Otago Rail Trail cycling trip. Mandy was lovely and so helpful. Our room was like new, beautifully appointed and with our own little gated courtyard and even a bike stand. Beds were comfortable and room was spotless. Continental breakfast was very nice. All round a lovely place to stay.

This is a great choice for a place to stay while biking the Otago Rail Trail. It is easy to find next to the Omakau Hotel (world famous in NZ in the Speights ads).
