Otago Peninsula hotels and hostels
This luxury ecolodge has three rooms overlooking a gloriously isolated inlet on the eastern edge of Otago Peninsula. Watch sea lions and bird life from the spacious decks, or get even closer with an eco-expedition with local farmer Dave.
Mc Farmers Backpackers
On a working farm with harbour views, this rustic timber lodge and self-contained cottage are steeped in character and feel instantly like home.
Portobello Village Tourist Park
With lots of trees and grass, this is a pleasant place to stake your tent. There’s a kids’ play area, a modern kitchen and wheelchair-accessible facilities.
Sunny, modern, self-contained units just off the main road in Portobello. Studio units have small decks overlooking the bay. One- and two-bedroom units are also available, but lack the stunning views.
Penguin Place Lodge
Atop the hill and surrounded by farmland, this lodge has a good shared kitchen, a bright lounge, and basic double and twin rooms.
This cute retro bach enjoys superb, ever-changing views of Otago Peninsula's isolated Papanui Inlet. Get busy in the funky kitchen, fire up the wood-burning heater and have an old-school Kiwi holiday.
Larnach Castle’s back-garden lodge has 12 individually decorated rooms. The Queen Victoria Room has a giant four-poster bed, while in the Goldrush Room guests sleep in an old horse-drawn carriage.
