We stayed here before starting the Otago Central Rail Trail. The place certainly has a lot of character, having been converted from some sort of truck workshop, with strange bits of metal here and there, but manages to be very comfortable anyway. Shared facilities, but we had the place to ourselves so didn't have to share with anyone else. We loved the bathroom layout, the bed was firm and comfortable, and the lounge had a warm fire. (Although it was March, warm and sunny during the day with temperatures in the mid to high 20s, the mornings were decidedly frosty). Location handy to the start of the Clyde-Alexandra riverside track (an attractive alternative to the rail trail) and just a few minutes walk to the centre of Clyde. The owners were friendly and helpful too.
