Thank you Bill and Suzy for a great stay at the Old Post Office Backpackers. You both gave a warm welcome after a day of cycling 61km! The place was warm, clean, tidy and friendly. The fireplace was a real treat!
Bill and Suzy are fantastic Hosts. Our Party of 17 Riders doing the Central Otago Rail Trail, arrived on a cold day to a roaring fire and the warmest of welcomes. Very clean and tidy. The beds were really comfy and warm. Our bikes were secure in the locked up garage. Nothing was a problem for Bill and Suzy, they even found us a Piper to Pipe us on our way in the morning. Wonderful place to stay.
We stayed for one night and where greated right when we parked with a lovely welcome. Bill, the host, is so kind and gave us a lot of tips and suggestions on what to eat and do. Can’t recommend the place enough!
We stayed two nights at the post office, nice place, clean, comfortable, close to cafe’s, stores and restaurant.......Bills a very friendly guy, he organised transport for us (5) to visit Nasbey and try out curling, which we highly recommend 😁 Would definitely return and stay at the post office again
One of the best backpacker style places I've been in. My 'single' room was spacious and had a double bed. The lounge, kitchen and bathroom areas were very clean and there was a good selection of books to read and a TV. Location is excellent, very close to the shops and old railway station, and staff helpful. There is a safe shed where you can lock away your bike.
From the moment I arrived at the backpackers both Bill and Suzy were amazing and so accommodating! They put me in a bigger room knowing I was traveling with a lot of luggage as I have just moved. The building is incredibly clean and well kept, I felt right at home. Once I found a long term place to live Bill even dropped me off! Door to door it was a wonderful experience, you can really tell they’re owners with a passion who care. Thank you 😊
We stayed at the Old Post Office Backpackers on our second night of the Otago Rail Trail. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. We enjoyed using the shared lounge area, having a fridge to use for drinks and the kitchen and dining area to make breakfast. Bill was a very welcoming and friendly host. He told us about the local pool and several in our group really enjoyed going for a swim after a day on the bike.
Stayed in the renovated post office building. We were made to feel like we were the most important people that had ever stayed there. The accommodations were greath up i, the town small and cute. A very pleasant stay. Highly recommended for those doing the Otago rail trail. Lindie
Bill is a wonderful host, welcoming and helpful! Clean place with comfortable bedrooms, living room has a lot of cosy sofas and a great fireplace. Kitchen with all amenities. Laundry service available (very useful after cycling for 3 days!)
This is a comfortable and warm backpackers. We were fortunate to be the only guests for the night we were there and with kitchen and lounge with comfortable sofas and television and a log burner fire going we felt very at home. The owner came back several times to make sure the fire was well stocked and to show us how to operate the burner. Our beds (bunks) were comfortable, the room was warm and we were walking distance from the local pub for dinner. Bill also locked our bikes away somewhere dry for the night which was much appreciated. Highly recommended and would be happy to stay here again.
