Our stay here was arranged by Cycle Surgery as part of our Rail Trail package. I must say we were very impressed with every aspect of Pitches Store. To find this level of accommodation in "small town NZ" is a credit to the the owners. Well done.

Nothing was too difficult for Colleen and her team. We had a group of 8 for dinner which grew by two just before sitting down, no problem. We had three birthday's to celebrate and we wanted a cake with candles, no problem. The beds were comfy (welcome after a day on the bike), the showers were hot, the food was yummy and the staff were friendly. A great stay in a welcoming and warm place

I can’t rate this accommodation and the owners highly enough. I had a bit of a ‘situation’ with my booked accommodation, when Colleen heard she was amazing and as a result I stayed here. Beds are so comfy, great linen and decor with very friendly people. I really enjoyed my brief time here. I will definitely be back and would absolutely recommend!

We were lucky this was our Rail Trail accommodation. What a sweet little spot and so worth the sixty second detour off the main road. We were warmly welcomed , facilities for bikers are excellent and we did appreciate the spa pool after the first day on the bike. There's an attractive array of cabinet food for and a consistent stream of locals popping in for coffee but it's well worth being in for lunch or dinner. The kitchen team were super-friendly and couldn't do enough for us, and the chicken and Apple tarte tartin were excellent. Breakfast the following morning was beautifully laid out and through-out local food and beverages were the focus, with the chef popping out to the kitchen garden often. The recently renovated rooms had everything we needed with a super bed too. Highly recommended stay in a beautiful historic building. Gorgeous stay, highly recommended and can't wait to find a reason to come back.

My partner and I wanted to end our 3 month road trip around the South Island with a touch of luxury so we could unwind and relax while enjoying some good hospitality and service - thankfully Pitches Store delivered exactly that! During our stay the staff were incredibly kind and really went the extra mile to make us feel warm, welcome and at home the entire time which added to the ambience of the already comforting atmosphere. We both enjoyed learning about the history of Pitches Store as well as Ophir from all of the historic information/ photographs displayed around the building, it made staying in the beautifully renovated historic building a very unique and special experience. The bedding was super comfortable, rooms were clinically clean and food was to die for (breakfast spread was like nothing we had experienced before)! We stayed for 2 nights which also allowed us to spend some time exploring the rest of the towns historic sites, which ended up being a real highlight of ours. I will be happily recommending Pitches Store to anyone planning to travel through Central Otago in future, as enjoying their selection of local wine from the outdoor courtyard and catching sunset from the spa is a must on any travel itinerary!
