We stayed here one night on our Otago Rail Trail ride. Such a beautiful house. Our room was amazing, clean and the bed was great. Good nights sleep. Our host made us a beautiful breakfast with old China. Totally enjoyed our stay.

We loved our time at the drs residence. Angela greeted us on arrival with a lovely afternoon tea. we were 2 couples so had the whole house to ourselves. lovely touches throughout the home, including fresh flowers and chocolates in the bedrooms. Angela was an excellent host, returning in the morning to cook us a yummy breakfast. Its worth getting off the rail trail to explore Naseby, have a go at curling and stay at the Drs Residence. Thanks Angela :)

We were fortunate to stay a night in this beautiful house on the second night of cycling the rail trail. We were welcomed by the manager Raylene with a lavish high tea and tales of Naseby and the home’s history. There are two guest suites so we had the house to ourselves overnight. This included the lounge with its wonderful artwork and fireplace. Our four-room suite was old-world charm with modern luxury. It was a 5-star experience.

Loved this cottage. Beautifully presented and furnished, our very friendly host Angela was there to greet us with afternoon tea then returned the next day to cook us a delicious breakfast. Spacious, comfortable, stylish couldn’t ask for a better place and wished we could have stayed longer. Would highly recommend.
