Larnach Castle

With its exciting, sometimes scandalous, sometimes tragic history, its magnificent carved ceilings, New Zealand antiques and breathtaking views, Larnach Castle offers you a vision of the past and present.

Dunedin's history is captured in several museums. The Otago Settler's Museum focuses on the people and past of Otago, as well as the innovative developments that made colonisation easier. Visit the Otago Museum next to the University and see how Dunedin was the most pioneering and influential city of early New Zealand.

Modern culture abounds within the city limits. Experience the hospitality of the more than 140 cafes, restaurants and bars scattered throughout Dunedin. It is easy to find your niche in such places as these establishments cater for all tastes-fine French dining, Asian, Mediterranean, Latin down to the traditional Kiwi experience of fish and chips.

We invite you to stay at our Dunedin Motel, and experience all that Otago has to offer.
