Wonderful Place to Stay

Jude and Paul are such fantastic hosts; they make you feel very much at home from the minute you arrive. Our room was gorgeous with touches of luxury. The breakfast was beautiful with every kind of cereal/milk and toast option you could imagine. It is really close to Timaru and the coast, so we had the best of both worlds. Would absolutely recommend Glendeer B & B.

This accommodation has the personal touch that others lack. From the start we were welcomed and made to feel 'at home'. The surroundings are pleasant and relaxing and the accommodation has a touch of luxury while not being overdone. The bed was comfortable and the rooms spacious. We had our own private courtyard with outdoor table and chairs. Very pleasant. Ample choice for breakfast. The proprietors obviously enjoy what they do.
