The authentic restoration of the accommodation in the Olivers Lodge complex honours its significant place in the history of the Central Otago region. The original stone complex, located in Clyde's historic precinct, was built by Benjamin Naylor in 1869 as a general store, servicing the prospectors who sought their fortunes during the Otago gold rush.

Inspired by the past, owners Andrea and David Ritchie sensitively restored the buildings and now 11 rooms superbly blend the old with the new, creating a contemporary ambience integrally linked with bygone days.

The rooms are all named after an identity or previous use associated with Olivers; they include the Naylor room, the Sullivan room, stone stable, tack room and coach house.

The five Stables rooms, overlooking a landscaped courtyard, have a rustic ambience reminiscent of Central Otago‘s pioneering days. Schist walls, stone floors, rough sawn timber beams and stable doors that date back to the 1870s are complimented with luxurious modern fixtures and fittings that make for a unique accommodation experience.

The six Lodge rooms showcase elegant contemporary interiors, that combine beautifully with the architectual elements of the building's past.

A freshly baked hot breakfast is served in the120-year-old schist walled dining room, or outside in Olivers' sunny courtyard, as part of the room rate for all rooms.
