Your hostess Gwenyth decided to build Tiger Hill Lodge right when the Rail Trail started. The idea was to offer a comfortable place where cyclists can relax after their first day of riding from Clyde. Still today, the majority of our guests are doing the Rail Trail and are loving the fact that the Lodge is right on the Rail Trail.

 It was by train that young Gwenyth came from Dunedin to the small town of Omakau. The train used to bring the world to the area. Now, over 50 years later, Gwenyth loves sharing the beautiful place with visitors from all over the world. She would say: “Now, the Rail Trail brings the world to me!”

Tiger Hill Lodge is a family run business and hospitality and a warm welcome is second nature to all of us.
