Luxury award-winning boutique luxury lodge in Oamaru, New Zealand
Celebrating Pen-y-bryn's 125th birthday in 2014!
A Luxury award-winning boutique-style lodge, Pen-y-bryn Lodge offers unrivaled visitor accommodation, fine dining and hospitality, thus earning Pen-y-bryn its growing international reputation.
As a luxury holiday or honeymoon destination, relaxing retreat, romantic getaway, wedding location or for no occasion at all, Pen-y-bryn Lodge provides guests the unparalleled service and comfort of famed South Island hospitality. Guests come from far and wide to experience this historic estate and take in the sights and experiences of North Otago, one of New Zealand's most historic and scenic "undiscovered gems". Many of our guests had never heard of Oamaru before they arrived, but leave wishing they could stay longer. The charm and beauty of Oamaru of course play a big role in this, but perhaps it has to do also with the gourmet delights on offer both at Pen-y-bryn and around town. At Pen-y-bryn, guests gather in the evenings, warmed by blazing log fires to savour first-class table d'hôte cuisine. Attention to detail in the use of the freshest local organic produce teamed with New Zealand wines from a connoisseur wine cellar create an exceptional dining experience.
Choose from a wide variety of outdoor activities or simply indulge and relax at the Lodge, playing billiards on the antique slate table in the magnificently paneled billiard room, or curl up with a good book in the library. Your owner/hosts, James Glucksman and James Boussy, delight in giving their warmest hospitality on a personalised level.
Pen-y-bryn is located on the southern boundary of Historic Oamaru on the East Coast of the South Island, one hour north of Dunedin, half way (3 hours) between Christchurch and Queenstown, and just 2 hours drive from Mt Cook.
