A fabulous b and b located in the midst of a spectacular rose garden. While the room is beautifully appointed and comfortable, the breakfasts, lovingly prepared by Mary, are outstanding. The first morning she baked muffins and served with clotted cream, followed by fresh fruit and yogurt and finished with poached eggs whole grain toast, and home made meat sausages with fresh herbs from her garden. She called the sausage a "resull". It was so good we asked to have it the next day. She graciously agreed. The next day we had the best pancakes served with fresh berries and other goodies. Our mouth watered the entire time we were in new Zealand thinking about Mary's breakfasts. The b and b, 2 rooms,is located in their home. It is situated in the middle of the phenomenal otago peninsula. Mary insisted we go to" penguin place" which was a real treasure that is a retreat on the coast for penguins. Absolutely perfect location. We were so glad we did not stay in Dunedin.
