Hartley Arms Accommodation is in the heart of Clyde, a perfect small historic town on the banks of the Clutha River in Central Otago.
Built in the 1860's as one of the numerous hotels to service the gold miners with a small accommodation block at the rear to offer comfortable lodging to travellers. These rooms are still available to todays guests.
Hartley Arms offers a unique opportunity to stay in simple and comfortable rooms in a peaceful garden setting in the centre of the historic precinct. Whether needing a good nights sleep at the beginning or end of the Otago Rail Trail, a weekend away for some fishing or other outdoor pursuits, or just some well earned R&R visitors will find a warm welcome, a cosy bed and a nutritious continental breakfast to see them on their way again.
Leanne fell in love with Clyde after completing the Rail Trail in 1996. It took her a few years to convince Steve it was a good place to live, he being a Californian ocean boy, and then it took a while to find just the right place. It had to be stone and it had to be in the centre of town. What a treat when Hartley Arms became available, a stone building with history and a place for guests.
Leanne is from the Far North and has spent most of her life in hospitality, she has seen a lot of the world and is always happy sharing travel yarns with her guests. Her other favourite topics are food and wine and where to find the best of both, gardening and hiking. She will be pleased to share her knowledge of all the local trails.
Steve likes the outdoor life, he is a keen kayaker, hunter and fisherman. He is always pleased to point guests in the right direction to cast a few lures and if you can't find him, chances are he will turn up later with a few fresh Trout. He is always happy to share fishing stories and a morsel of freshly smoked fish.
Your other hosts are Sushi, Bear and Smutz. They love it that every day brings new friends and will always be happy for a ball chase or a pat.
