Lodge and Stables

Experience history alive in discerning, contemporary style at Olivers Central Otago.
The first building at Olivers was built by Benjamin Naylor in 1869 as a general store, servicing the prospectors who sought their fortunes during the Otago Gold Rush. The Lodge and Stables quickly followed and these buildings have been sensitively restored and now provide accommodation that is elegant, unique and gloriously comfortable.

Today, in recognition of its outstanding heritage value, Olivers Central Otago is protected by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust with a priority category one classification, signifying a property of ‘special or outstanding historical or cultural heritage, significance or value’. Proud of this status, Olivers Central Otago is dedicated to preserving its unique local heritage, and maintaining the highest tradition of New Zealand hospitality and service.

Accommodation – Boutique B & B 

Choose between the five Stables rooms, with a rustic ambience reminiscent of Central Otago pioneering days or the six Lodge rooms that showcase elegant contemporary interiors.
All rooms have new ensuites, many with claw foot baths and under-floor heating. Central heating throughout the Lodge and Stables creates a warm and inviting environment especially during the crisp, clear days of winter. With most rooms offering luxurious SuperKing or King sized beds and with fine quality linen and soft down-filled quilts, a relaxed, comfortable stay is guaranteed. 
All rooms open out onto Olivers sun drenched courtyard or front garden where guests can wind down at the end of the day and enjoy local Otago wines and platters of fine food, whilst taking in the views of the surrounding hills. 

A freshly baked hot breakfast awaits guests in the cosy 120 year old breakfast room (originally the servant’s quarters) or can be enjoyed alfresco in the courtyard. A guest lounge is filled with books, many of which provide history and information on the Otago region. A television and free wireless internet access is provided.
