“Excellent Place To Stay On The Otago Peninsula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

We were in NZ for the Rugby World Cup and stayed with Cathy & Alex at Arts Content B&B for one night and then again a week later for eight nights in September 2011. Our hosts were very helpful and made sure our stay was comfortable. A plentiful variety of different ingredients were supplied for our breakfasts, including eggs straight from their hens.
We found this comfortable accommodation ideal for our needs - a bedroom/bathroom on the ground floor, then up a spiral staircase to a snug kitchen/diner/lounge on the first floor with fabulous views back across the water towards Dunedin. Sky TV and WiFi are readily available. The kitchen is well equipped with all the expected kit but also with a microwave oven and a small hob, so that on a couple of nights, we were able to cook basic meals.
Arts Content B&B is located about 15 minutes by road from the centre of Dunedin, so we could escape the town and enjoy a peaceful rural location on the peninsula. Further along the peninsula are yellow-eyed penguin sancturies, beaches where we saw sea-lions and seals as well as the Albatross Sanctuary at the end of the peninsula. There are plenty of cafes on the peninsula and in and around Dunedin are more restaurants.
This is a great B&B with lovely hosts, in an ideal location - thoroughly recommended. If we visit NZ again, then this accommodation will be on our list!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

The accommodation comprises upstairs lounge/kitchenette with a deck looking right down the harbour to Dunedin. There is a spiral staircase that goes down to the bedroom and en-suite bathroom below. The bedroom can also be accessed from the garden when carrying your luggage (or at any other time). Ideal location for the Otago Peninsula & Dunedin. Hosts Cathy & Alex are very friendly and have good local knowledge. Breakfast basket is just a delight, as are the chocolates on the bed when you arrive.
