We stayed for three nights in the comfortably furnished, pleasantly decorated and very spacious Ambrosia Suite during a driving tour of New Zealand. McAuley Glen is set in luxuriant gardens at the harbour of Portobello on the Otago Peninsula. It is an ideal location, near to Dunedin but in a tranquil setting. It is a short drive to the nearby...

The outdoor fireplace & spa pool were great too! Delicious breakfast, love the pancakes and homemade bread! Would highly recommend to... More

We stayed with Mary and Patrick on the beginning of March 2015; we enjoyed the beauty of the Otago peninsula, the seals, penguïns and albatrosses, but especially we were amazed by the hospitality, the helpfulness and the suggestions given by Mary and Patrick. We won't say anything about the breakfast only that we increased weight because we could not stop... More

The gardens are beautiful and the accommodations are comfortable, spacious and welcoming but what stands out are the generous and delicious breakfasts. Mary and Patrick are friendly and helpful and have lots of suggestions for activities in the area. There are 2 good restaurants within walking distance. We will always remember our visit to Penguin Place, which is about 15... More

We could only stay two nights, but it was wonderful. The hosts, Mary & Patrick, were very friendly and extremely helpful with sight seeing tips and plans. They gave us suggestions for dinner and even called in reservations for us. The breakfasts were awesome, we ate so much we skipped lunch and just had some nibbles w/drinks late afternoon, prior...

We stayed with Mary and Patrick on October 16th with our teenage kids in both rooms. The garden is so beautiful and it creates a lovely setting for the B&B. Right away Mary brought us scones with cream and jam, and Patrick helped to get us situated and squared away with our itinerary for the evening. I enjoyed a dip... More

Simply the most beautiful gardens offering various bbq areas, pergola seating areas, a large private spa pool, fantastic sauna for up to four people laying down. The smell of the gardens was so welcoming just like the hosts, Mary and Pat. I would recommend staying here over and above any where else as there is so much to do in... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour of New Zealand The room we had was very nice and everything had been thought through including some basic cooking facilities, heating (nice underfloor heating in the bathroom) and television. From that perspective it was a big positive. The location is excellent on the Otago peninsula so all the... More

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend away staying at McCauley Glen Boutique Bed & Breakfast. It was first class from when we arrived with piping hot scones just out of the oven awaiting us. The room was superb with great comfortable beds, well set out with everything one would want or need. The breakfast can only be described... More

Outstanding experience with great beds and food. Suggest that anyone staying try the home made apricot jam (If we didnt eat it all) Mary and Pat the owners also made some great suggestions as to activities on the peninsula which turned up thrumps. A truly great B and B. Thanks
