Three of us stayed at the old post office building on our second night of the Otago Central Rail Trail, a short distance off the trail in a quiet little town. The post office has been thoughtfully and beautifully adapted for its new use as accommodation. There is a generous kitchen/living/dining area and the bedrooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. We enjoyed exploring the rooms and discovering such things as where letters would have been posted and where the safe would have been housed. I appreciated a soak in the bath. We highly recommend the Bedpost for both its location and for the two buildings themselves - not only the heritage aspect but the luxury and comfort that they offer to any traveller but especially cyclists wanting a rest.
