Dealt with Diane through email, who booked my room. On arrival, Richard showed me to my room. Spacious, well thought out, tasteful and  comfortable. Free WiFi, that...

We loved our stay at Hawkdun Lodge especially the large, well set up communal dining, lounge and kitchen area! It's close to rail trail, spacious rooms with comfy seating, kitchenette and bathroom with heated floors! Especially loved the BBQ pack pre-ordered and supplied by Maniototo Cafe ... perfect steak, great variety of salads and beautiful dessert! Highly recommend!

Can't say enough about Hawkdun Lodge, for our one nights stay on 30th Dec 2016, while doing the Otago rail Rail. Really handy to Trail itself, easy to find, and pleasant hosts. We booked one night in the larger suit, which was a modern clean apartment styled Motel unit ( breakfast not supplied). Layout was superb and had plenty of...

We booked one night at the lodge and was pleasantly surprised at the accommodation. Rooms appear new and very tastefully decorated. Beds had electric blankets and bathroom had under floor heating. Although we didn't take advantage of the spa pool room it looked very nice. No views but after a day travelling through the ever changing scenery we were in...
