Oamaru Luxury Lodge Accommodation
We understand the small details make a big difference in the quality and longevity of the memories you create here.
With our careful guardianship of the history and comportment of Pen-y-bryn we are proud to offer accommodation in Oamaru that is at all times inimitable, comfortable and inspirational.
Ours is not a place of transitory design and painted-on ambience. Instead each room provides a designed space that is genuine and enduring.
Be it a night or two or for a longer stay, we want this time to be remembered for years to come.
Breakfast is included in our rates.
The Garden Room is located on the upstairs level of our Oamaru stone ‘Annex’ building. Our largest guest room, it comes complete with super-king bed, separate sitting area and plenty of room to move and properly relax in. The en-suite bathroom offers heated tile floors and a separate oversize bath and shower.
Characteristic of the style upheld here at Pen-y-bryn, the beautiful timber flooring and sumptuous atmosphere provides an enduring sense of rest and relaxation within the Park Room. As one of our largest rooms, with a super-king bed that converts into twin king singles if necessary, it provides a sitting area.
On the upstairs level of our Oamaru stone ‘Annex’ building the Nest Room delivers this perfect balance. It is one of our largest rooms, with a super-king bed that converts into twin king singles if required. The view is equally big – guests enjoy the perspective out over the township of Oamaru.
The Victoria Room provides a sense of ‘a home away from home’ while delivering the little luxuries and air of class inherent within a sophisticated lodge setting. Located opposite the Elizabeth Room in the main lodge building, this guest room offers both striking oak furnishings to captivate the eye.
In keeping with the heritage of the house the room is furnished with antique and period furniture and a sumptuous queen-size bed. Like all of our rooms, it provides year-round climate control with both air conditioning and radiant heat ensuring the extremes of the Oamaru seasons are kept at bay.
Dining at Pen-y-bryn
At the end of an incredible day out in Oamaru, join us in the dining room for an experience that is, for many, the highlight of their stay at Pen-y-bryn. More than dinner, this is a celebration of the lost art of conversation, culinary excellence and impeccable table service.
As a member of both the Slow Food Movement and the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs (one of the world’s oldest gastronomical societies dedicated to the art of cooking), we take pride in the unique qualities within our menu.
The majority of our ingredients come from our lovingly tended herb and vegetable gardens. Additional produce, meat and seafood are sourced from a hand-picked collection of local and sustainable producers. Menus are prepared daily based on the produce available.
Our evening meal is something that must be tasted to be believed. Step back to an era of fine dining in a room whose richly designed interior is matched only by the rich flavours on your plate. We offer a full range of New Zealand wines on our wine list, featuring the distinctive wines of our local area and others from the rest of the country. For guests who wish to bring their own wine, a corkage fee will apply.
