McAuley Glen Boutique Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 62 Dunedin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2017

We had a fantastic visit to Dunedin. The B & B worked great for our family of four. Mary's breakfast was amazing! And, the visit to Dunedin and the surrounding Otago Peninsula was one of the highlights of our trip. Weather was good (despite it being "winter" in NZ) and we enjoyed the quiet. Our trip to see the penguins was just the four of us...peak summer time has almost 100 visitors. NZ in winter is the best time to go.

When you have a wanderlust in you and need a break from your life, have a staycation! Spent the weekend at McAuley Glen Boutique B&B in the Peninsula Otago. Weird to think that a 30mins drive away from home it could be just like another holiday! Best part of the B&B? They have jacuzzi hot tub, sauna, bbq, and amazing afternoon tea as well as three course breakfast homemade by sweet lovely Mary. Simply Paradise!
The three course breakfast will surely boost your energy for the day (or actually send you back to bed because its alot of yummy food to digest!).
Mary is the perfect kind of host for bed and breakfast, she's so flexible, sweet and make tons of jokes that light up a person day, making my staycation so much more relaxable and cozy!
I was lucky to have two full days of sunshines that weekend.

My family of 4 had an excellent and memorable 3-days stay, at this B&B wonderfully hosted by Mary and Patrick. The breakfast was excellent, something different and special to start each of our 3-days during our stay. The Lauralie Suite in which we stayed, was comfortable for 4 persons. The suite was nicely done up, so as the garden. The Suite, bed, bathroom were so cozy. Though autumn weather turned a little chilly at Otago Peninsula, it was comfortably warm inside the house. We slept well during the 3 days. The location in Otago Peninsula also suited many of our activities. Great choice for anyone / family who wants to tour Dunedin and Otago Peninsula.

Mary and Patrick's bnb is simply one of the best places we've stayed at in NZ. Their garden is a wonderland, the breakfast was extraordinary and their kindness unforgettable. Thank you so much! Highly recommended!

Friendly hosts, Mary and Pat, went out of their way to make our stay a really special experience. Our room (furnished perhaps rather ostentatiously) was clean and comfortable with choice of pillows and there was underfloor heating in the spacious en-suite bathroom. We were welcomed with tea and freshly baked scones. Mary takes great pride in her beautiful garden, which involves a lot of hard work and is a haven for the local birdlife. We particularly enjoyed the birdsong in the mornings. Cooked breakfasts were sumptuous and included fresh juice from real oranges. There were a couple of places for dinner within easy walking distance. We were grateful for Mary's help in booking visits to the nearby yellow-eyed penguin sanctuary and royal albatross colony. The B&B, accessed via twisting scenic route along sea front from Dunedin, was ideally situated for visiting these and Larnach Castle.
