Our hosts, Nina and Roger, were gracious and full of helpful information. Our room had all the creature comforts one could ask for, including a fireplace, a computer tablet, four poster bed, heated bathroom floors, a spa bathtub and even a bidet! The view from our room was of a serene pasture complete with friendly livestock. While the décor was... More

If I could rate this property higher than excellent I would. Nina, Roger and their daughter Ashley made us feel exceptionally welcome even going as far as learning how to make hollandaise sauce for my husbands eggs. The breakfast was beyond delicious and we really enjoyed chatting with other guests from around the world. Our hosts were extremely knowledgeable about... More

We recently stayed at Camp Estate for 1 night - if we had known earlier how good it is we would have stayed longer. Do not miss the opportunity to have dinner in the castle, it was a very memorable last night in N.Z. for us. The staff are very friendly & nothing is too much trouble. An experience never... More

I would just like to reiterate all of the comments of the other reviewers. This is the most well appointed place we stayed in New Zealand with attention to detail. Our room had a great view, a gas fireplace, a tablet computer, radiant floor heat, and everything else you could hope for. Location is close to albatross centre and the... More

My husband and I had an unforgettable stay for 2 nights recently. Without a doubt, this was the highlight of our NZ 12 day holiday. Everything is breathtaking - the position, the amazing accommodation, the hospitality and service provided by the staff. We were treated like celebrity guests. Everything about our stay was 6 star++ and the attention and help... More

Dear Elizabeth Thank you for your wonderful review. We are pleased to hear you stayed two nights, so often guests only stay one night and miss out all the many things to see and do in Dunedin and on the Otago Peninsula .

We had a wonderful two night stay at Camp Estate, Larnach Castle. From the moment we arrived we were looked after incredibly well. Nina and Roger were both exceptional hosts. The house itself was presented to a very high standard and immaculate throughout. Our stay happened to fall in-between two other events so we had plenty of room to ourselves.... More

A friend and I shared an incredible stay at Camp Estate. With only 5 rooms, there is plenty of space to breath and lots of opportunity to mix with other guests. The views are second to none, as is the size and quality of the rooms and furnishings. There was a small wedding while we were there and I can... More
