A Luxury award-winning boutique style hotel, Pen-y-bryn Lodge offers unrivaled visitor accommodation, fine dining and hospitality, thus earning the Lodge its growing international reputation.

Guests can choose to dine in the evening (with prior arrangement) and enjoy epicurean cuisine, prepared using lodge-grown and locally-sourced ingredients, worthy of the lodge's membership in the prestigious Chaine des Rotisseurs.

And if you choose to visit the world-famous Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony for their evening viewing, your dinner can be timed to accommodate the penguins' varying schedule!

Choose from a wide variety of outdoor activities or simply indulge and relax at the Lodge, play billiards on the genuine slate table in the magnificently paneled billiard room, or curl up with a good book in the library.
