With the closure of any hostelry from here to Middlemarch this is the last sanctuary on the rail trail and what an oasis. Fantastic views, comfy spacious accommodation and an evening meal to die for. There is also a liquor licence allowing a fine selection of wine and beer to be purchased. The full breakfast after a great nights sleep...

Due to a booking mishap on our behalf (we had booked the same day the month prior) we were lucky to even get a room it turns out. We were most excited about staying at Kokonga because of the homemade meal, but we missed out because we had booked the wrong date. Nevertheless we were welcomed off the track sodden...

Kokonga Lodge was a great place to spend the night while on the Central Otago Rail Trail. Our hosts, Dorothy and Malcolm were extremely friendly and gracious. The evening meal was delicious and the rooms very comfortable. There was a guest lounge that overlooked the beautiful gardens with views to the mountains in the distance. If you don't visit Kokonga...

Dorothy and Malcom are superb hosts to our group of 6. We stayed a night with them on the Rail Trail, and found them very friendly and obliging. The lodge is very comfortable and spacious. Our evening meal was excellent, and then a hearty breakfast before getting us underway again. Highly recommended. Thank you

The property has lovely gardens, and two interesting historical buildings on site. These consist of an old schoolhouse and the masters home, which is now a private residence. We understand the property is to shortly change hands. This was the last stop on our ride.

Here we received a rather cool welcome as we had come in the wrong door. We had arms full of stuff from our bikes but were told after we said hello that normally people come in the other (back) door and take their shoes off. We we're escorted out the back door where we took our shoes off still clutching...

From the first warm welcome, we felt at home at Kokanga Lodge. The rooms are spotlessly clean, beds comfy and everything modern and well presented. An urn of hot water and an array of teas, coffee and home made cookies were available in the hall way by the door. Downstairs were comfy chairs, papers and books to read, or a...
