Our hostess Colleen was very welcoming and the evening meal delicious. Our rooms were well appointed and quiet with amazingly comfortable beds. Breakfast the following day was hard to leave. We will definitely make another visit here. Such an enjoyable experience.

What a delight to find an hotel with quality accommodation and service in the deep countryside. The history off the hamlet is fascinating and it will become a tourist destination. Pitches Store has been beautifully fitted out and the room was light and crisp - the bed large and comfortable and the bathroom clean and attractive. Colleen and her staff...

Had a pleasant lunch there last year when I was driving from Queenstown to Dunedin. The lunch menu didn't have anything that out of the ordinary, but the meal was cooked perfectly and presented well. Nice wine selection and helpful staff. I would go there again if I happen to be passing by.

We stayed one night recently while on the Otago rail trail and just loved it. The restaurant was amazing and the hospitality of the staff and host was superb. We also enjoyed exploring Ophir's heritage buildings.

Colleen and her team were quite wonderful. The comfortable room opened out onto a deck and it was a few steps to the spa. Dinner was delicious, and Colleen very kindly offered to provide a cooked breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
