|Larnach Lodge overlooks the Otago
Harbour, the peninsula and the Pacific Ocean. In a new building quite

Barker Family have created an imaginative, comfortable haven for
The guest rooms have been individually furnished in harmony with the castle and the surrounding landscape. My favourite room is The Sea Room - furnished in line with the view outside - deep blue walls, sisal matting which emulates the sand, and fish and shells as design features. Then there is Kate's Room - Larnach's favourite daughter, the romantic White Room with plenty of lace and broderie anglaise, and a number of rooms which feature New Zealand plants and trees found in the grounds of Larnach Castle and Lodge.
Evening meals are served in the grand castle dining room. We didn't sample the food, but the opportunity to dine in this magnificent setting would be one I would find hard to refuse. Entrance into the castle is complimentary when staying at the Lodge, so make sure you make the most of this. And if you appreciate a stately garden you should set aside plenty of time to wander around the majestic grounds of the Castle.
New recreation of colonial farm building set in 35 acres of gardens and grounds. There are twelve bedrooms with private facilities, each individually decorated in period style. Each room has a splendid view of the ocean 1 000 feet below.
Lodge guests may dine in the Castle dining room. Dinner requests are required by 5pm on the day. Breakfast available. Lodge guests are invited on a complimentary tour of Larnach Castle during opening hours.
