We have had a very good time in Portobello, walking, visiting Albatross and Penguins. But our trip is long and sadly we have to leave your wonderful place, Thank you for taking good care of us.
Claudia & Rolf. Switzerland. 15/01/14


I can’t believe our stay here in Portobello has come to an end!. 5 days went so quickly, Mary, your welcome greeting with scones jam and cream was a hit for Heather and I, we just love scones!! yours were the best in the world. Pat, introducing me to my first time kayaking was amazing, I felt really safe and truly enjoyed the experience. It was delightful to see the seals and blue penguins in the water and up so close. Thank you both for wonderful hospitality and all the advice for things to see and do, it has made our stay that much more memorable.
Barbara and Heather Reid. Toronto Canada & Havelock North NZ. 8/01/14


Amazing lovely breakfast, it was like a little paradise here, stunning 2 days, great service and family atmosphere a place to relax, especially the hot pool. Staying at Mcauley Glen made our trip to NZ special and we will definitely be recommending this B&B as a 5 star ...you can’t beat that! we loved it.
Rudi & Bettina Germany. 3/01/14


Dear Mary & you made us forget that we were not with our family during Xmas. Thank you so much for hospitality and the care you gave us. We very much enjoyed our stay in your little paradise.
Kerstin & Axel Boening. Germany & China. 25/12/13


Unsurpassed! Beautiful grounds with attention to every detail in and out of our room. The bath robes -very cosy, bathroom floors- warm to feet, the Jacuzzi – most relaxing, and the best breakfast we have had at any B&B in NZ,- includes gourmet breads, frittatas and crépes. Mary & Patrick are friendly and fun to talk with. We can’t recommend their wonderful hospitality enough ...do visit them and enjoy the complementary wines and waltz to their beautiful music as we did.
Debbie & Jan Hoffman. Wichita USA. 13/11/13


Six wonderful nights as guests in your lovely home,thank you, your kindness and hospitality will be remembered and God willing we will return someday.
James & Sandy Giannestras. Canada. 1/10/13


Dear Mary & Pat, Thank you very much for your hospitality while my family and I stayed at your B&B. You are very lovely people and treat your guests like they are family and friends you have known for years. I love the rooms and the gardens, they capture the whole “country air” while still being quite posh and comfortable. Mary, I love your meals! they are absolutely delicious and very filling. Pat, you are great at making people laugh and I enjoyed talking with you. Paige, your granddaughter is lovely too, and it was nice having some one my own age to talk to. All in all I enjoyed my stay and I’m sure my Mum and Dad did too!. Yours sincerely Libby Steel.
