Taken in by the rave reviews, gorgeous pictures, and the unique location, my partner and I stayed at Camp Estate for 3 nights back in February. And we were not disappointed in the least. The accommodations are top notch, Roger and Nina are personable and experienced hosts, and the location is quite unique. Arriving fairly late in the day, Roger... More

We loved our stay at Camp Estate. Wonderful friendly staff made us feel at home even in the grandness of this house. Excellent food and beautiful rooms. Stately and elegant. Camp Estate is a wee way out of town but well worth the travel. We enjoyed out trip and diner at Larnach Castle too.

A premium stay with the utmost in excellent hospitality. Roger greeted us at the car door as we pulled up at the Camp Estate by Larnach Castle on the Otago Peninsula, above Dunedin, South Island, New Zealand. The fire was going in the welcoming living room, and we were served hors d'oeuvres before being driven up to the castle (1/2... More

This hotel is owned by Larnach Castle and provides their upmarket accommodation. There are only 5 guest rooms and are beautifully decorated. The focal point is the huge staircase which greets you as you enter. Dinner is not served at the hotel but you can eat at the Castle itself which is an experience not to be missed. Alternatively you... More

We spent 3 nights at Camp Estate. Roger the host met us and was very welcoming and made our stay very special. The accomodation was excellant, warm and inviting. Really quiet location and has spectacular views of the Harbour and Penisula. Sandy cooked the most amazing breakfast! :)

This lovely hotel is well set and designed. It gives a feel like walking into your private mansion on top of mountain. There are only 5-6 rooms. The rooms are super nice and modern and each room has a bit of difference in interior. I personally love floor heater in the bathroom. Location wise, the hotel is far from the... More

We spent three weeks travelling around New Zealand and this was by far the best place we stayed. From our arrival nothing was too much trouble and we instantly felt at home. Roger was very helpful in suggesting places to eat, places to visit and walks to do. Following his advice we followed the yellow markers at the back of... More

Roger and his helper Sandy couldn't have been more gracious and welcoming. Room was wonderful and comfortable bed, and their recommendations of where to eat and what to see were spot on. They arranged dinner for us one night at Larnach Castle, where we were the only guests, so our hostess Trish entertained us with wonderful stories about the castle... More

We were lucky enough to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Camp Estate. We opened the main doors only to see the most beautiful marble staircase. Our room was very comfortable with magnificent views. Dinner at Larnachs Castle with the other guests was most enjoyable and breakfast was delicious. Sadly we only stayed one night and should have stayed two because... More
