The rooms are lovely, but the views are better. You must have dinner at the castle. It's good value and a wonderful experience. We met and made friends at dinner and enjoyed hearing about the history of the Lanark family. The castle is very interesting, even to those with little interest in architecture. The family history is fascinating, and could... More

Fabulous gardens and we are no gardeners but loved the setting and the history of the castle past and more recent. Views from room was amazing. Breakfast in the old stables was lovely and good value. Would definitely recommend a couple nights stay

Now here is a place to go! Not only the castle but also magnificent gardens and views to die for. Even when the weather changes the scenery is delightful. You bump into allsorts from everywhere. We eeven bumped into the owner whilst tending her beloved gardens.

My wife and I spent two nights at Lanarch Castle early in January 2015. I had low expectations, not having done the same research into the place that my wife had done. I was very pleasantly surprised. Guest accommodation is in the Lodge, a two story building near the Castle. When we checked in, the hostess asked whether we knew... More

The Castle is very good and the renovation have been done in a very good way. I strongly recommend this Place, the only thing that I missed was a separate bathroom, we had to share with 3 other rooms so it was not crowded.

It was a lovely drive around the coast to Larnach Castle. When we arrived there we were met at the gate by a friendly man who gave us a map and directions to the accommodation. My mother and I were so excited to be staying here - one of my mothers bucket list things to do. When we were shown... More

Their is also a very beautiful garden you can stroll around and lovely views of the coast. Staff are friendly and helpful. My husband was looking where to find a paper, and one of the... More

We would have never found this place if it hadn't been for Kathy, Certified Travel Concierge with Beach Bum Vacation. My husband and I were there for 5 nights and we stayed in room 23- the upper corner room of the lodge. The view was spectacular, the room was spacious and had all the usual amenities. Hot and cold breakfast... More

Positives excellent accommodation with fantastic views from the lodge. The stables provide shared bathrooms and functional rooms. Dinner is excellent and highly reccomended. There is the chance to mingle with other guests and share your NZ adventure. Cooked Breakfast included in tarrif was a bonus. Negatives a little pricey when dinner is factored in.
