Jocelyn & Sandy were superb hosts and my husband and I had a wonderful stay at their B&B in Dunedin! Their beautifully restored house had historic mouldings, cabinetry and lovely fireplace mantles. The accommodations in the blue master suite were very spacious and had a great table setup in the room including a coffeemaker, bottled water and cookies. The breakfasts... More

Jocelyn and Sandy were the perfect hosts. Our stay began with a wine and cheese reception in the parlor in which Jocelyn and Sandy spent nearly an hour with us discussing our trip to New Zealand, our likes and dislikes, and then them making suggestions as to what we should see and do in Dunedin. Then Jocelyn made all of... More

Gorgeous, spacious room with a fireplace and sitting room. The balcony looked out over the city and the bay. Joslyn and sandy were wonderful hosts and invited guests to join them for cocktails in the evening. The breakfast was incredible - fruits, juice, cheese, nuts, cereals, pastries and your choice of a hot dish.

Glendinning House is a five star, architectural gem. Our blue room was pristine -- immaculate; fresh flowers; heated bathroom floors; fluffy towels and lots of them; port, fresh fruit, homemade cookies and candies in the room; balcony overlooking the sea. The breakfasts were the best in NZ, served in the beautiful dining room with full silver and china service. Jocelyn... More

The room was spotless with many added touches .. tea and coffee, fresh fruit, freshly baked biscuits, chocolates ... and beautiful fresh flowers. In the morning we had wonderful breakfasts in the gorgeous dining room, open fire warming us, with home made... More

Our visit to Glendinning House was the final leg of our 6 week visit to NZ and was certainly the jewel in the crown of our many B&B experiences along the way. This wonderful early Edwardian property has many beautifully retained architectural features and is immaculate and tastefully decorated throughout. The bedrooms are large, luxurious, light and comfortable. Our room... More

We stayed for 3 nights in February 2014 at the end of a three week trip (our first visit) to New Zealand. We stayed in excellent small lodges and B&Bs with very nice hosts but Jocelyn and Sandy were particularly helpful and thoughtful. For example, one morning we said that our plans included going that night to see little blue... More

An overnight as a couple in the Blue Room, and single grown son in the Yellow. Very comfortable. Delightful and generous hosts, Jocelyn and Sandy, considered every last detail. The rooms were spotless, linen pressed to within an inch of its life, abundant fruit bowl, coffee, tea and bottled water. The room was replenished several times during the short stay.... More

Recommend this B&B if you want a great sleep, relaxing and luxurious rooms immaculately presented. Superb breakfast. Sandy & Jocelyn are down to earth and welcoming. A little distance from the centre of Dunedin however view from rooms is stunning on a clear day
