“Lovely hosts & a lovely location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

This is a delightful bed-and-breakfast located on the beautiful Otago peninsula. We stayed three nights earler this year and were made very welcome by our hosts Neil and Susan. In fact, our stay was more like visiting old friends, even though this was the first time we had visited the area. We had the larger of the two bed-rooms, with a fantastic view over the bays and a to-die-for extra large bed. The hearty breakfasts were varied and gave us a good start to the day. A visit to nearby Sand Fly Bay is a must, but do find the "easy" route down (and back). My wife is still recovering from the climb back up to the car!

We stayed at Porterfields for 2 nights in April and we really loved it. The hosts Susan and Neil are lovely. Our room upstairs was well-kept with en suite and separate entrance. Everything was well-kept and clean. We loved it to chat with Susan and Neil with a cup of tea in their living room. They are experienced travellers as well and we loved to listen to their the impressions from eastern Europe.

All around a perfect stay to visit the Otago Peninsula and Dunedin.

We stayed in the Porterfields B&B for two nights and we just loved it there. The B&B is very cosy with a special warm atmosphere. We stayed in the double room with a comfortable king size bed and great views.
Susan and Neil are just perfect hosts that are very interested in their guests' stories. They gave us a lot of ideas what to do and we enjoyed listening to their stories about travelling to Europe. We loved sitting in their living room having a cup of tea together and chatting away. We can highly reccommend the B&B for everyone who is looking for great company in a cosy atmosphere. You will love it! :-)

We had a very large double en-suite room with wonderful views from both windows; very light and airy. Excellent breakfasts. The hosts, Neil and Susan, make you so very welcome and love to share experiences about travelling. One word of warning, though - the accommodation is at the top of the 33rd steepest street in Dunedin (according to Neil!); the car struggled a bit! This has to be one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed at. Top marks!

Our room was large and warm with a great view, comfy king bed, and ensuite bath. They had a computer for guests and/or free wireless internet available. There was a fridge with milk and pot to make tea on the landing. We never used these as our hosts invited us to have tea and biscuits with them each evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening visits and felt we were old friend by the time we left. They were warm, friendly, and helpful. They suggested restaurants, tours, and places to visit. We enjoyed a leisurely nicely served continental breakfast.

When we arrived at Porterfields B & B we were instantly made to feel very welcome with a pot of tea and cake. There are 2 rooms upstairs with Tea & Coffee making situated between the rooms. We had the double room which was very spacious and comfortable and had a great view. The King size bed was particularly comfortable. Neil served a lovely continental breakfast at the time of our choice and Susan entertained us with their travel experiences of eastern europe. It is an ideal position to tour the Otago peninsular. They were very helpful in assisting us with our decisions about excursions to the nearby places of interest, and made the bookings for us. We would highly recommend the Natures Wonder trip especially between dec - feb.
If you are in the vicinity of this accomodation don't pass it by, as it rates as one of the best B& B's we stayed in, in 28 days of touring the north and south island.
