We stayed at Larnach Lodge for our wedding night, and had an amazing time. We arrived late at night, but the team organised for us to check in earlier that day and provided the key. When we arrived on the cold, windy night, our room was cosy and warm, and exactly what we needed after a big day! The view... More

Comfortable accommodation with great views over the harbour. Price includes full breakfast and audio guide tour of castle so pretty reasonable. Dined in the castle which was a great experience with excellent food. Definitely something you should do!

The castle accommodation and dinner was absolutely stunning. No words can describe how amazing the experience was. This is bucket list material. We were travelling with a group of 9 couples and everyone was overwhelmed with the quality of the accommodation, the food and the hospitality. Put it on your bucket list.

Stopping at Larnach Castle was one of the highlights of our New Zealand trip. A visit to the Castle on its own would have been a great experience but to be able to stay there and explore the grounds when they are closed is wonderful. Our room in the Lodge was on a corner and we had spectacular views from... More

We went winter time so the garden is not at its best but the castle is worth a visit and the accommodation excellent. Staff are helpful and courteous. Highly recommended. The scenery around the castle is spectacular.

Such a friendly warm welcome...MacIntosh toffees and shortbread biscuits in the room and very helpful staff who made us feel so at home in this awesome place. The room was warm - important on a cold early winter evening. Also clean with wonderful bed - supportive but not hard. The view over the Dunedin harbour was spectacular to wake up... More

Between my wife and I we have now stayed here 4 times. Beautiful setup, beautiful view and location and the themed rooms are great. Dinning at the castle is a must, for the history lesson as well as the meal. Gardens are full of lovely nooks and crannies to explore and are stunning! Staff are wonderful and engaging, providing an... More
