We had 2 nights at Captain Eady`s Lookout and met friends from Canada there. The B&B is actually in Portobello on the Otago peninsula and it is a long, windy road to get there but we loved it. The house has been nicely restored and has a beautiful garden and wonderful views over the water. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms new. Richard welcomed us with glasses of wine and recommended a nice place for dinner. He booked the Elm Wildlife Tour of penguins for us for the next day. We also visited Larnach Castle and Glenfalloch Gardens which are also on the peninsula, so we didn`t have to drive into Dunedin until the next day.
It wouldn`t be so convenient if you were expecting to do most things in Dunedin, but for us it was great.
