McAuley Glen Boutique is a lovely place to stay in the Otago peninsula close to all the sea life attractions (albatrosses, blue penguin colony, seals) and tracks. Mary and Patrick were very welcoming, helped with the bookings of trips (in our case: sea life boat trip) and took their time to chat and give useful recommendations on how to spend the holiday. We very much enjoyed the beautiful garden and even more so the extraordinary breakfast! We've had a lot of luck with our B & Bs on this trip, but we've never had such a wonderful breakfast! :)

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was brilliant. The location at Portobello on the Otago peninsula is perfect if you like being a bit more remote and if you like to walk and see lots of wildlife.
There is also a variety of trips seeing wildlife and the peninsula. The breakfast is excellent and can set you up for the whole day. Mary and Patrick are the perfect hosts and they will give you lots of info. There are 2 places to eat in Portobello both of which serve great food and are only five minutes walk away. Don't miss the seals at Sandfly beach and the night visit to see the blue penguins at Albatross Centre.

As previous reviewers have pointed out breakfast is an event.

Mary and Patrick are the perfect hosts, the bedroom was delightful and well fitted out as was the bathroom, and the gardens are beautiful.

Mary gave us loads of helpful advice regarding the local sites to visit.

A lovely stay in an exceptional B&B.

We chose Portobello on the Otago Peninsula as a good base for visiting Dunedin and all there is to see on the peninsula itself. Staying at McCauley Glen B&B, with Mary and Patrick, we were not disappointed.

Set in beautiful gardens, the B&B has 2 rooms, one that can accommodate up to 4 people and another for 2 people, both on the ground floor. Ours was spacious and lovingly designed and had the benefit of a small service area with crockery and cutlery, kettle, microwave, toaster and fridge. Having eaten out in the day we found it very useful for preparing drinks and a snack in the evening.

But in fact the HUGE breakfasts prepared entirely by Mary proved enough to keep us and her other guests going until well into the afternoon. A fruit platter, homemade cereals, yogurts, a cold dish of muffins or pancakes with fruit, cream and iceceam were just the prelude to a vast array of cooked delights, accompanied by freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee or tea and finished off with homemade toast.

Mary and Pat were amiable and friendly hosts and were knowledgeable about the peninsula and its sights as well as about Dunedin. Mary very willingly booked for us to visit the yellow faced penguin reserve and the albatross reserve, as well as for us to visit Olveston House in Dunedin. And while we were out she did a load of washing for us too!

We can thoroughly recommend McCauley Glen and using Portobello as a base.

There were two couples who had traveled for a month through New Zealand and were winding down our trip when we hit Dunedin. We had picked this place on the internet because of its location - right on the Otago Peninsula. Man, did we luck out! The rooms are wonderful, the breakfasts unbelievable, the hosts, Mary and Patrick, some of the best people on the planet. Mary organized our activities and we got to see the blue penguins, the yellow eyed penguins, the albatross and do an amazing little cruise around the peninsula to see all the shore birds. Wow! What fun! Would do it again in a heartbeat! Happy New Year! Would highly recommend this fabulous garden spot. Thanks, kids!!
