My wife and I stayed in the lodge for two nights while on our honeymoon. Needless to say it was the best overall experience we had whilst driving through the South Island. The staff were amazing and the service was top-class. The breath-taking views and stellar accommodation, made the windy drive up the hill most worth it. The gardens were... More

This was an interesting stay. The castle is in a lovely location, even the drive there is great. The castle itself was interesting, a peek into a past age. We enjoyed trying to find all the characters for Alice in Wonderland in the garden. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable. The accommodation in the stables is fairly basic and includes... More

What a great experience. I wish there was the option for a personalised tour, and sadly we weren't told about the audio tour that you could download, but it was still a wonderful trip! When we stayed in the lodge the shower was very small and the bathroom was quite cold, but the view bedroom more than made up for... More

It was a nice stay, the casttle, the gardens, the breakfast and the staff were remarkable. I have been just a bit disapointed with the price too high for the bedroom we had but overall it was a great experience.

Everything was perfect, definitely I will recommend the hotel to everybody. The communal breakfast was wonderful. This is the only Castle in New Zeland. The staff was so good. During the dinner, a nice lady told us the history about the Castle

Highly recommend staying the night at the castle. My husband and I booked a stable room and it was cosy but had everything we needed. We also enjoyed dinner in the castle where the food and experience was fantastic. Was fun to meet other guests and hear about their travels and the hosts tells great stories. Highlight was the yummy... More

As a birthday treat we stayed at the castle for 2 nights in the 'Sea room' which had the most amazing views. The room was gorgeous with a big balcony (shame it was too cold to sit out on!). Lots of tea and coffee and free wifi. The only down side was the bed was not very comfortable. The breakfast... More

We had booked into a number of B&B's over the South Island but had no idea we were staying here. We were in the Lodge section rather than the converted stable section. Our room on the ground floor at the rear had fabulous views over the bay and islands. The room itself was very comfortable with all amenities (fridge, tea... More

Accommodation in the converted castle stables is all about the atmosphere and surroundings of the only castle in NZ. The studio we stayed in was quite small with very limited headroom on one side (not a great problem). The bed was comfortable, the bathroom and toilets close by. The communal breakfast was wonderful, with excellent service. Generally good value to... More
