Welcome to Ophir Thyme Accommodation

This lovely old building was the former St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, built in 1897 (a category II listed building) and sympathetically restored by the current owners.

Two units

We have 2 units – The Nave and The Vestry. Book individually or together if there is a group of you doing the Otago Rail Trail.


Free WiFi, flatscreen TV, air conditioning. The Nave has a full kitchen and wheelchair access.


We’re at 13 Swindon Street – in ‘downtown’ Ophir, walking distance to Blacks Hotel and Pitches Store Cafe, 2kms from the Rail Trail and only 15 minutes drive from Alexandra.

Ophir Thyme Accommodation comprises of two separate units – one of which, the Nave has a full kitchen, and the Vestry, which can be booked individually or together (with adjoining lockable door) e.g. for families or two couples. 
Both have their own separate entrance.

“Absolutely stunning conversion of an old church to accommodation. All extremely clean, new and nice. A must go to if you are planning to stay in this area. I was staying in the larger apartment and it was simply great!”
