We stayed one night in the Parker Suite...which was extremely comfortable, spacious and decorated to a high standard. Bob's hospitality was first class. In the evening we enjoyed a chat and complimentary home-made canapes and locally selected wines. We were invited to a "trust the chef" breakfast and were delighted with the result... Naseby is an interesting village with some...

Our hosts, Dallas and Bob welcomed us with a wine tasting of local wines with canapés and provided supremely comfortable accomodation followed by a delicious breakfast. Naseby is only a short car trip from the Wedderburn section of the Otago Rail Trail and one well worth making. Delightful historic gold mining town with a great pub providing excellent quality meals....

Thank you for your very kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us together with some of Naseby's other hospitality and history. Hoping the remainder of your trip was equally enjoyable with a smooth flight home to Melbourne. To the next time ...... Best regards, Bob & Dallas

Stayed overnight while doing the Otago Rail Trail. Great accommodation; warm, comfortable beds and well situated in the quaint town of Naseby. Hosts, Dallas and Bob, were very welcoming and generous with their hospitality; local wine tasting and canapés in their own beautifully decorated lounge was a lovely way to finish a day on the Trail. Breakfast was delish. Thanks...

My wife and I stayed at the Old Doctor's Residence in Naseby while cycling the Central Otago Rail Trail with another couple, and to say it lived up to its reviews would be an understatement.

Jan and Grant are wonderful hosts - we arrived after a days cycling on the Rail Trail. Naseby is a little out of the way, but a little gem worth finding.
