The castle was absolutely magical. Beautifully restored. Amazing gardens and birdsong in the morning. We had a lovely comfortable bedroom with bathroom and a delicious breakfast. Thank you to friendly staff well worth the stay to see the castle ahead of tourist groups.

Stunning position above the bays around Otago Peninsula. Quirky and different.

Lovely lodge room with panoramic outlook over the ocean and the harbour. The castle is beautiful and I can recommend the dine-in experience and breakfast in the stables the next morning. The staff were exemplary.

We arrived late but were greeted with a smile and shown to our room. We opted for room service for dinner and it arrived quickly and was delicious. The room was beautiful with views over the Dunedin harbour and coast. Breakfast was lovely in the adjoining charming, converted stables building. We were able to tour the magnificent castle building and the gardens before we left.

Unique Experience

Although Lanarch Lodge is quite a way out of Dunedin, it was absolutely worth it. The amazing views from our windows, beautiful gardens and the history made our stay so enjoyable.
