“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Though the name Camp Estate may conjure up a rustic cabin, this could not be further from the truth! This 2005 building on the grounds of the Larnach Castle is absolutely exquisite! The drive up from Portobello Road is also stunning. We were only there for one night, but Nina and Roger were very helpful in setting up our tours on the Monarch and of Penguin Place. In our limited time, we were able to see albatrosses, penguins and seals in their habitats, and have dinner in a castle to top it off! I can't speak to the value, as it was part of a package of accommodations, so I don't know how much it is to stay there. The Castle has other accommodations as well.

My husband and I stayed at Camp Estate on the Dunedin leg of our honeymoon and quite simply, it was absolute perfection :)

The journey to Larnach is lovely, with sea views as far as the eye can see and entering Camp Estate is very special - beautiful grounds, gorgeous stone work, stunning chandeliers, Victorian features, etc.

We also loved touring Larnach Castle and grounds & greatly enjoyed dinner at the castle in Larnach's dining room. The food was excellent and talking to the other guests was entertaining.

The staff are excellent as well - Roger & Nina, you are an amazing couple. Very friendly and excellent cooks!

We had an enjoyable, although brief, stay at this beautiful place. Excellent breakfast, great views of Dunedin and access to the Castle and its beautiful grounds. Due to other commitments we had limited time to enjoy the Camp Estate, but we would love to return sometime.

Well worth the drive from Dunedin you will find absolute first class accommodations bar none! Committed to a very high standard of service, lovely living room with fire place for get together drinks. Full cooked breakfast is very substantial.
What really makes this so special is the kind efforts of Roger and Nina who are the best front line staff we have come across in a long time
Well done and we will be back.

Camp Estate was great. The house is beautiful, the room was well thought out and spotlessly clean. On arrival Roger welcomed us warmly and suggested we made the most of the clear weather and take a short view to look at the amazing views over the peninsula. Well worth it.
Breakfast cooked by Nina was excellent. As a rule I don't eat cooked breakfasts but couldn't resist each morning.
Camp Estate is well situated for exploring the Otago peninsula being situated midway between Dunedin and the Royal Albatross Centre.
We thought dinner in the Castle was poor and if we were to stay again we would ask Roger for more restaurant advice instead. On the second evening we ate at 1908 in Portobello which was good.

We spent three nights at the Camp Estate at Larnach Castle in Dunedin as part of our honeymoon. The facilities were first class and the decor was interesting, thoughtful and amazing. The hosts, Roger and Nina, completely spoilt us and were a large part as to why this was our favourite part of our honeymoon. We couldn't have been treated with more warmth and care and we felt very special because of the way they treated us.
The castle was also a highlight for us, as was the dinner in the castle. This is definitely a must do!!!

Camp Estate is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. The hosts, Roger and Nina, make it so special, and are just such lovely, down to earth people. The room we stayed in was beautiful and clean, and small touches just made it that extra bit special. We have never stayed in such an amazing place and will definitely be back. Would recommend staying at this place to anyone, it is an experience not to be missed! Thank you so much Roger and Nina!
