We stayed at the Camp Estate as part of a larger trip around the South Island. We did not know what to expect going in, as we usually stay at hotels, but we are very happy that we deviated from our normal practice. The Camp Estate is impeccable. The house is large and tastefully decorated with modern finishings. Our room... More

This is an interesting place. Stunning location and on a good day great views from the rooms over Dunedin. Very handy for Otago Peninsula so a 15 minute drive into central Dunedin. The Lodge is very close to and obviously has a connection to Lanarch Castle in terms of ownership/ management but operates separately. The internal decor is incongruous with... More

My mother (84) and I stayed here for a bit of luxury while traveling the South Island. Luxury it was, nice quiet room, with very pleasant and helpful hosts. The interior public space was very sterile, clean, shiny etc. however the room was more sedate and relaxing. Didn't like the shower leaking over the floor, couldn't stop this happening. Also...

Don't be put off by the rather dour exterior - this is some posh place as the foyer will instantly tell you. The rooms are great - there are five of them - and the hosts Lisa and Michael are both fantastic. The modern gas fires in the bedroom make the rooms extra cosy. Michael arranged breakfast for us for... More

Camp Estate is a strange place to stay. It's pseudo Art Deco furnishings make you feel a little like you're walking into a nightclub. The rooms are fine although the bathrooms are tiny. The hosts on duty are a bit "off" although they try to be nice. I did take umbrage at the fact that charged for sparkling water during... More

Stayed here for two nights just after New Year's Eve and had a wonderful time. Lisa was a most welcoming host and drove us to Lanarch Castle both nights for a wonderful evening meal. The rooms are located high on a hill overlooking Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula. The rooms were well appointed and immaculately clean and very comfortable. Michael... More

Great welcome late at night plus excellent facilities. Mike & Lisa put on a great breakfast. Views from the estate over the Otago Pensinsula were very impressive. Weather was wonderful. Visit to Larnach Castle was included and much appreciated

List and Michael were the perfect Hosts. We were made to feel very welcome. The room was lovely with a super view! We had Dinner at Larnach Castle which gave us the opportunity to meet other guests who were staying which was really nice. If ever back in Dunedin this is where we would stay!

Beautiful location on the Otago Peninsula with a fabulous view back over the city of Dunedin. The night time view is even better. The room was very comfortable with a gas fire, although we did not use it as it was not cold. The room was large enough and had all the bits and pieces you would expect, safe, hair... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our babymoon trip in the South Island and the worst part was having to leave. I could happily live here. We absolutely loved it. The room was tastefully decorated. Our room was at the front of the manor so we had a beautiful view of Dunedin. Unfortunately the weather was quite miserably while... More
