Lovely welcome here and comfortable room. I sat out on the deck and wrote some postcards where I met the friendly cat- her name escapes me! (The dog was cute too but I am a cat girl...) Delicious dinner and nice atmosphere. Friendly genuine hosts. Got up to see the sunrise and had a great yarn with Saskia. Excellent hospitality.

I’m British. I like a pub. I live in NZ. I miss British pubs. This one however made me feel at home. Ambiance. Lovely team. Great food. Good beers. All in this made me very happy. I wish there was something closer to where I live. Will have to come back!

We got a lovely warm welcome in Blacks Hotel in the back of beyond in Otago NZ. Quaint, cosy, open fire, great food and such great hosts. Nothing was too much for the hosts as 13 wet cyclists turned up on their doorstep. They lit an open fire to dry shoes, they found many areas to dry wet gear, had a place for bikes to sit and the rooms were all different with very quaint names which the rooms matched!

We visited for dinner whilst staying in Ophir cycling the rail trail. Two of us ordered the porterhouse steak. OMG. It was to die for. The wine was great - a local Pinot went down a treat. The new owners are great. Spent a good time chatting to them. Very hospitable. Thoroughly recommend if passing through.

Incredible vibe due to the amazing decor and hospitality. We stayed in the Hot Jock room, very comfy bed, clean and beautifully decorated. Sandy is a whizz in the kitchen and we both had an amazing dinner. I had the pasta with prawns and hubby had the Blue Cod, both delicious and well presented. The continental breakfast was included in the room rate and was more than enough for us both. Highly recommend as a winter getaway or a great stop off whilst doing the rail trail.
