Pen y Bryn Lodge is a luxury boutique lodge situated in flower-filled gardens atop South Hill in one of the most exclusive districts in Oamaru, on the East Coast of New Zealand's South Island. This property is a grand and sprawling mansion that retains many aspects of its Victorian heritage. Offering warm hospitality, charming accommodation and mouthwatering cuisine, it will appeal to couples seeking a unique and indulgent escape.
Pen y Bryn Lodge provides five spacious and opulent rooms, all featuring a charming blend of old-world elegance and modern comforts with unique Victorian features such as clawfoot baths, magnificent sleigh beds and antique French doors.
Evening dining is a highlight of the stay here. As members of the Slow Food Movement and the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the lodge prides itself on serving seasonal, local and healthful foods. Much of the produce comes from their own gardens.
The lodge is ideally located for exploring Oamaru and North Otago. Highlights include two penguin colonies, the Moeraki Boulders, Danseys Pass, Mt Cook and Oamaru Opera House. Fishing, golf and skiing can also be arranged.

“Oamaru and the Waitaki District have been one of New Zealand’s fastest-growing travel destinations for several years now, and Pen Y Bryn Lodge is an example of the fantastic accommodation on offer. Rooms are traditional, yet cosy and quirky. We particularly recommend booking The Nest Room with its sunken bedroom and views towards the Pacific Ocean and the Kakanui Ranges. Dining here is also exceptional.”
