  • Pleasant setting in a very quiet neck of the woods. History all around, like so much of the south. No meals at the pub the nite we were there, but the Omakau hotel was less than 30 mins away and has fabulous meals. 5

  • Quaint but modern facilities. A great way to get ‘off the grid’ - although there is a TV if you really need it. Comfortable bed. Good water pressure in the shower. Breakfast offerings exceeded expectations. If you plan to do your own cooking, last stop for provisions is either Ranfurly or Alexandra. 4

  • Being an historian I loved the ambiance of the old jail. The facilities were excellent and more than adequate. We loved the contact with the locals at the Vulcan Hotel and the hospitality of Jude and Mike Kavanagh was a delight. It is not often that I will give a top overall rating — but here it is. I will come back! 5

  • Thanks Bill. So good to hear you appreciated the jail. Interesting interview on Radio NZ this morning with Lizzie Tollemarche and David Ladderman – who came close to burning the jail down! But I have to say I am very sceptical about their explanation. Nice story though. http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/ninetonoon/audio/2018619286/a-spooky-otago-honeymoon

  • The Jailhouse is really well set up with a well equipped kitchen (and generous breakfast supplies), nice modern bathroom, comfortable bed and very cosy bedroom. The private garden and verandah, which caught the afternoon sun beautifully, were lovely places to relax after a morning's sightseeing. 5
