                  Accommodation in Rakaia

                  Accommodation is scarce in the centre of Rakaia. Make sure you plan your stay in advance, as there is only 1 place to stay within 10 kilometres.

                  The St. Itas Guesthouse is likely to be your only option if you are set on staying near the hustle and bustle.

                  For more options, try out the Bella Vista Motel Ashburton and the Hotel Ashburton. They are located 25 kilometres and 20 kilometres respectively from the center. If those two don't meet your needs, try the Gunyah Country Estate or the Granary at Gunyah.
