Loved the castle! Room in the lodge was very nice, with wrap around deck. Very clean, and had a fridge. Went to the dinner, food was good but service not too professional, they were not sure who ordered what. New person working, maybe that was why. We had an awesome view!

Room was comfortable and outfitted with all the little extras--great selection of tea/coffee etc in room, toiletries, free internet!!, and gorgeous view from our corner room. And in just a few steps we were strolling the castle grounds and gardens which are lovely. Tour of the castle included in our stay. Great breakfast in the stables building, again just a... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in a very comfortable "Lodge room" with lovely views across the estuary and harbour. We had the "White Room" with a four poster bed. The weather was cold and raining but the room was warm and comfortable. The bathroom was of the "wet" type with a shower but was of good size and... More

We stayed one night in the converted lodge and each room had a theme. Lovely views across the water and mountains. Staff were excellent, evening meal with the other guests was very nice (gluten free no problem) everything was lovely, very glad we chose to stay.

We booked the only room that was available and it happened to be in the Stables. Luckily for us somebody cancelled from the Lodge after our first night and we asked to be upgraded to the Lodge - together with an early check-in from the friendly staff. There is no comparison between the Stables/Lodge - the Lodge rooms are absolutely... More

Our stay here was wonderful. The staff were very attentive and even joked around with the guests. We had a lovely little corner stable room. It was fun to be in the stable. Breakfast was very good and plentiful They served a continental buffet with a hot breakfast to order. We also had dinner in the dining room of the... More

We carefully reviewed the website and selected the Sea room which totally delivered with the 'to die for' views of the Otago peninsula. The room was also very spacious and clean. We booked the summer package, of room and Elm wildlife tour. This is highly recommended as a package. The platter (feast!) of meats, seafood, salad, cheeses etc with a... More

A great experience, friendly, dedicated staff. The group dinner in the Castle was well done and a good way to talk to the other guests. Good value considering the room tariff included entry to the Castle and breakfast. The room was tidy, warm and a good size.

Whilst this is not a luxury experience by any means (the room was a bit poky, the food good but not great etc), we are thrilled to have stayed there. Even without a balcony and a poky window, we felt on top of the world. The service was good all around. And we ended up having the castle guest dinner... More

Our family of 5 stayed in one of the stable rooms and had dinner in the castle. It was a wonderful experience. The castle and grounds are beautiful. The stable had internet and even tv. We did have to share showers and bathroom, but there was plenty of facilities and they were clean with everything we could need. Dinner and... More
