Larnach Castle is a must-visit - the only castle in NZ and a magnificent folly. You can stay in the grounds (3 different types of accomm) but not in castle itself. We stayed in the lodge - lovely rooms with splendid ocean views. Wandering round the beautiful gardens is very relaxing.
The table d'hôte dining was good - staff could help more with introductions and ice breaking with fellow diners - but food was very good. A charming experience.
