Certainly an experience to stay in a loft above the former stables! The hobbit chairs and cushioned rafter beams are complimentary as are communal showers that groan in the night. But where else can you experience the grandeur of a restored castle, the pomp and circumstance of a group dinner with all the fineries and the absolute splendour of the gardens eith spectacular views. Fantastic.

The room was clean & very comfy & breakfast was a great extra. We loved having access to the gardens & castle all in the room cost. We loved the service & staff were sensational & nothing was too much trouble. We will absolutely have this as a must on our next visit to NZ & we'll be recommending it to our friends.

I enjoyed every minute of my 2 night stay. Wonderful, beautifully cooked and served dinner in the Castle’s dinning room with top quality New Zealand wines and lovely full and continental breakfasts.The Castle and superb grounds were available to guests to wander at will and when the day visitors left the quietness and beauty was such a tonic. Coming out of the dining room into the evening’s thick mist on top of the Otago ridge was a surreal experience. I stayed in an attic room of the Stables, rustic with shared bathroom and thin walls but very reasonable. The lodge rooms were more pricey but very nice accomodation. Short drive down the hill to get to the Otago Peninsula to see the albatrosses and penguins. A great way to experience living in the Castle grounds
