Myself and boyfriend both work in a 6 star hotel in HKG, I have to say, we are picky people! When we arrived McAuley Glen B&B, a bit hidden but close to what we need to see, easy and handy.
Mary greeted us with a big smile, waving to us from far, her warmth just gave me so much energy after my 3 hours drive. After we settled down in room, cosy, quiet, comfortable bed, heated bathroom floor, peaceful envioirnmnent, so much privacy in our own castle, she served us with homemade goodies, drinks, introduced us to her friends....... organised our dinner in one of the local restaurants. We had a good night sleep.
The next morning when we went to Mary & Pat's dining room for breakfast, I thought I was in a 6 star restaurant with open view, bright, delightful! The pancakes she made for us is the best, followed by homemade bread & jam, angus beef ball, eggs, bacon, mushroom, tomotes fresh fruit salad, cereal, fresh organe juice etc .... not only the food I can taste, I can feel Mary's passion in her B&B. The next day breakfast was different, equally good; I can go on but do not want to bore you!
Mary gave us advise to two beaches and we found what we want to see! Seals! Mary assisted us to organise the tour, all in all, everything is in good order. I highly recommended you to pay Mary and Pat a visit if you go to Dunedin!
