Historic Port Chalmers, only 20 mins from Dunedin!

“You step inside and immediately feel comfortable”

Geoff and Lorna, Cumbria UK

A quiet alternative to Dunedin backpackers, less than 20 minutes away, we are a unique, quality lodge, where you can enjoy the spectacular views of Otago Harbour, the heritage of Port Chalmers while staying in your own secret hideaway, away from the crowds.

Koputai (The place of high tides), Port Chalmers, an alternative to Dunedin with its mixture of working port, fishermen, artists, galleries, cafes and heritage buildings, has a charm of its own and worth a look around.
