Yes, it’s a must to book accommodation well in advance?

The Otago Central Rail Trail offers plenty of places to stay, however much of the accommodation is Bed & Breakfasts which are generally restricted to just six guests. Even hotels along the Rail Trail are country-size in terms of rooms and beds. Once you’ve planned your itinerary, use this website to explore your accommodation options, bearing in mind to book months in advance, especially for peak periods such as spring and autumn – and especially over Easter.
