Larnach Castle is a delight. the accommodation at the lodge -- very comfortable room with great views of the Harbour. the Tui's serenaded us in the morning. one must book in for dinner -- you get to meet other guests & dine in the Castle's dining room. Food was as good as you would get at a 5 star fine... More

We decided to stay the night at the lodge as we had a hire car so transport wouldnt be a problem and it was pretty comparable prices to hotels in dunedin city, so we thought we might as well just stay overnight in a castle. Why not!? We arrived in the late afternoon so we had breathtaking views of the... More

Spent two nights in the "Sea" themed room at the lodge which had glorious views and was warm and comfortable. I would have rated our stay as "excellent" if it weren't for the beds which were too soft for our liking (I suspect the mattresses have not been replaced for some time) but they were far from dismal. You will... More

This was our third stop on our honeymoon. Great views and nice garden. We hired a car and drove out to the castle which was great because we got to take our time driving along the peninsula (went along the coast on the way there and through the hills on the way back to Dunedin) and admire the views. We... More

Not far from town, nice and peaceful and very comfortable and warm room. I also enjoyed the tour of the castle and castle gardens and even though was freezing cold the... More

My room in the stable block was being refurbished, so I was upgraded free of charge to a room in the lodge. The decoration is very Scottish - lots of tartan and a chamois' head mounted on the wall! I enjoyed it. The breakfast was also very generous and the views from my room were stunning.

My husband and 11 year old son stayed in the New Zealand room in July. The views are incredible. We enjoyed a glass of wine whilst watching the sunset. The bathroom is huge and the beds very comfy. We dined in the castle which was such a wonderful experience. We were the only guest (due to it being winter) and... More
