“What a Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We recently had the opportunity to stay on the Otago Peninsula at Callies. This is a wonderful place with fantastic owners. They looked after our every need and took great care to look after all the little extras that made our stay so special.

Highly Recommend!!

What a fabulous place to end our stay in NZ! We had 2 excellent nights at Callies at the end of February, and wished we could have stayed longer. Jenny and Bruce were fantastic hosts, and we were treated like old friends, not visitors. The room was large and very comfortable, the balcony had lovely views of the bay, and breakfasts were excellent. The Otago peninsula was a beautiful, unexpected treat. The only surprise is that Jenny and Bruce do not expect to get the rave reviews they fully merit!! Thoroughly recommended.

We had a fabulous 2 night stay at Jenny and Bruce's accommodation. The bedroom upstairs is nice and large with a sitting area and also has a balcony. Our hosts recommended some scenic rides (we were on motorbike) and Jenny drove us in her car to Albatross Centre (we did not have enough petrol to get back to town otherwise) Most generous hosts, they even shared their wine with us!! Made our 2 week bike trip around South Island memorable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND and a big 'thank you' again to our hosts. From Marco and Caroline, Somerset West, South Africa

Bruce and Jenny were great hosts. Lots of tips on wildlife as Bruce has helped at the Albatross Centre, the breakfast was really good. It was particularly nice that Bruce and Jenny sat with us at breakfast so we could chat at leisure. The bedroom was fine. If Otago was closer to Europe we'd go back like a shot! Stunning countryside, lovely beaches with dozing sea-lions, an entertaining, committed French zoologist at Penguin Place.

Our night stay at Callies was part of a breathtaking visit to New Zealand. It was late and we were tired but Bruce and Jenny made us feel right at home. Loved the room, felt like we were in a mountain chalet, we highly recommend.

Bruce and Jenny are wonderful hosts and can give you great tips on finding wildlife. Lots of winding roads take you to breathtaking views of rolling fillf seashores and farms. Rics fish and chips is the best blue cod. Cozy room, comfy bed, yummy breakfasts. We stayed for 3 days.

Callies is a perfect place to stay if visiting the Otago Peninsula. A great welcome from Jenny and Bruce who are keen to offer any help or advice you may need.Breakfast is a delight, and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable.Location is also good being only a short stroll from a small supermarket and 2 restaurants.
