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

We stayed two nights at McAuley Glen and enjoyed Mary and Pat's hospitality. I wish we could have stayed longer! The B&B and the entire Otago Peninsula was a highlight of our two week trip. We booked last minute and despite them not expecting anyone for the weekend, Mary greeted us warmly on arrival, gave us some of her lovely... More

What a wonderful welcome from Mary and Pat. Our room was well appointed and had lots of little extras. Very comfortable bed. The under floor heating in the bathroom was a nice suprise. Mary's breakfasts have to be experienced to be believed and leave you feeling satisfied all day. Mary and Pat had lots of information and suggestions on seeing... More

We had a two night stay at McAuley Glen and thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Mary and Patrick. Our room was extremely comfortable with a little private patio which unfortunately due to the weather we didn't get the chance to enjoy. We were given a lovely welcome from Mary with a grateful cup of tea and beautiful home made scones,... More
