From the moment you arrived you were made to feel as if this was your own home and oh so special. Room was so inviting and warm. The pre dinner drinks were very welcoming. We were driven to dinner at the Castle which was a wonderful experience with very good food, very informative talks about castle history and a wonderful... More

We arrived after dark through the fog and the mist to the most magnificent accommodation. It was like being in Scotland! We dressed for dinner then were driven to the castle for an incredible dinner. I had thought that this may be a little touristy but it was like a group of new friends having a grand dinner party together.... More

What a luxurious spot and the setting with the castle nearby and the breathtaking vistas add to a wonderful experience. Roger and Nina are gracious hosts and so helpful. Breakfasts were delightful. Definitely a highlight on our trip.

The lodge is in the grounds of Larnach Castle a quite lovely building with great views ....and an interesting history! You must have dinner there - to meet fellow travellers and to hear Sylvie's eerie telling of the fate of the Larnach family! The Lodge is 500 metres from the Castle and whilst the rooms are beautiful and breakfast is... More

Though the name Camp Estate may conjure up a rustic cabin, this could not be further from the truth! This 2005 building on the grounds of the Larnach Castle is absolutely exquisite! The drive up from Portobello Road is also stunning. We were only there for one night, but Nina and Roger were very helpful in setting up our tours... More

My husband and I stayed at Camp Estate on the Dunedin leg of our honeymoon and quite simply, it was absolute perfection :) The journey to Larnach is lovely, with sea views as far as the eye can see and entering Camp Estate is very special - beautiful grounds, gorgeous stone work, stunning chandeliers, Victorian features, etc. We also loved...

We had an enjoyable, although brief, stay at this beautiful place. Excellent breakfast, great views of Dunedin and access to the Castle and its beautiful grounds. Due to other commitments we had limited time to enjoy the Camp Estate, but we would love to return sometime.

Well worth the drive from Dunedin you will find absolute first class accommodations bar none! Committed to a very high standard of service, lovely living room with fire place for get together drinks. Full cooked breakfast is very substantial. What really makes this so special is the kind efforts of Roger and Nina who are the best front line staff... More

Camp Estate was great. The house is beautiful, the room was well thought out and spotlessly clean. On arrival Roger welcomed us warmly and suggested we made the most of the clear weather and take a short view to look at the amazing views over the peninsula. Well worth it. Breakfast cooked by Nina was excellent. As a rule I... More

We spent three nights at the Camp Estate at Larnach Castle in Dunedin as part of our honeymoon. The facilities were first class and the decor was interesting, thoughtful and amazing. The hosts, Roger and Nina, completely spoilt us and were a large part as to why this was our favourite part of our honeymoon. We couldn't have been treated... More
