Larnach Castle Accommodation

Larnach Castle has been a long standing partner of the GO Play programme but things just got better. As well as a 10% discount on all castle tours, you can now score yourself a 10% discount at all three of Larnach Castle’s accommodation options: Larnach Lodge, Camp Estate at Larnach Castle and Castle Stable Stay.

Stable Stay

One of the coolest places to stay on any trip to Dunedin is in the converted stables at Larnach Castle. The stables are 140 years old and a category 1 listed historic building. The rooms are limited in size and have shared bathrooms but a stay here is more about the experience and it caters well for the budget-conscious traveller.

Larnach Castle is a truly magical place to come and stay at any time of the year. When snow is on the ground during the winter months, it’s like a scene from Narnia and the views out over the Peninsula in the summer are simply stunning.

Bella Vista Accommodation

The Bella Vista network of accommodation encompasses 27 locations throughout New Zealand and is a huge coup for the GO Play programme. Partnering with Bella Vista gives Go Rentals’ customers access to discounts in locations throughout the country from Whangarei to Invercargill. Their philosophies are based on consistency and reliability; two things that we can relate to here at GO Rentals as they look to ease the stress of traveling and give guests a great night’s sleep no matter where they are in the country.

With a 10% discount on offer to anyone renting a car with GO Rentals, the savings can soon add up as you make your way around the country with motels and hotels in perfect locations across both the North and the South Island.
