Luxury bed and breakfast located in the historic precinct of Naseby, Central Otago, New Zealand

A warm welcome to the Old Doctor's Residence.

Nestled in Naseby, the ‘jewel’ of the dramatic Maniototo, “The Old Doctor’s Residence” will provide you with a peaceful retreat or a base for action-packed adventures. Our historic home started life as a gold miner’s cottage in the 1870's before developing into the home and surgery of the town’s doctors over the years. It has been sensitively restored into a luxury bed and breakfast accommodation furnished with antique colonial furniture and contemporary New Zealand works of art.

The guest wing offers you privacy, with two elegant and tastefully decorated bedroom suites, a reading room with TV, a very comfortable main lounge with a log fire and TV for your comfort and relaxation. A short stroll will take you to eating places, the historic centre of Naseby village, the village green, the Hogburn and the fascinating cemetery. For the more energetic, there are plenty of activities to savour in the surrounding areas. 

Upon arrival, you will receive a delicious afternoon tea of homemade baking along with your choice of Tia Ora tea's or Nepresso coffee and you will be served a generous, hearty continental and cooked breakfast in the morning to get you started for your day.

Take a break at this highly rated residence when cycling the Otago Central Rail Trail. Or come for a relaxing escape and explore this unique part of  New Zealand.
