The Old Shop B & B

The original Gilchrists Store, New Zealand’s oldest continuously operating general store.   'Out the back' is now accommodation for 6 – One double room, large bedroom with four singles, full bathroom, sitting room. 

The Otago Central Rail Trail has some wonderful accommodation experiences in store. As the name suggests The Old Shop B & B was once a store, the original Gilchrists Store in fact. Now what was 'out the back of the shop' offers comfortable accommodation at very affordable prices for up to six.

Outdoors boasts a sun trap, sheltered garden for well-earned relaxation or socialising under Central Otago's famous summer skies where it's daylight to around 10 o'clock. Right next door to the building Gilchrist's Store moved into in 1920 you'll find it hard to resist spending time browsing shelves of Kiwiana and Kiwi nostalgia. An experience made all the more memorable sipping your favourite style of coffee 'baristered' by hosts John, Helen and their staff.
