Hi, its nice to meet you. We are so glad that you are here!!
I’m Fizz (and Rocket, our resident golden retriever), the owner of Antique Lodge Motels
I love people, I love travel, I love the outdoors, I love life!
I took over the Antique Lodge Motels at Level 2 during the Covid-19 crisis, an incredibly challenging yet exciting time, so I am super excited to have you to stay with us. We are hoping that you will be able to experience a relaxing and energising break in the the most amazing part of our world, Clyde, here in Central Otago.
Check out our LOCATION page and find out all about our area.
We believe in lots of things here at the Antique Lodge Motels but mostly...
We believe in embracing the moment.
We believe in encouraging connections.
We believe in growing relationships not transactions!
We believe in protecting our land!
We believe that QUALITY of Life matters!
My passion for the tourism industry really ignited after I spent a season managing Pompolona Lodge, one of the luxury lodges that Ultimate Hikes runs on the Milford Track. Living and working in such a remote and beautiful part of our country was life-changing. A complete 360 degree from working in the agricultural industry throughout Canterbury, Southland and then Central Otago for the majority of my life.
CENTRAL OTAGO IS AMAZING!
The open spaces, the incredible scenery, the access to all things active, the food, the wine, the arts, the people. What is there not to love? So come stay with us.
Ring, email or message us for any questions or queries you have about staying with us or about the Clyde area.
See you soon!
