10.0 Excellent
Pros: Cracking stay in a traditional home a stone's throw from the lake. Facilities were spotless and characterful - it didn't feel like just another bland room - and for longer stays there is a shared lounge begging for a free afternoon and a good book. Our midnight arrival was dealt with flawlessly, and in in the morning over a lovely breakfast there was a warm welcome, with attentive but not pushy hosts. Excellent parking, easy to find and quiet, but a pleasant walk along the lake front to the bustle of town. Bring your togs for the hot tub or you might find yourself buying some cheapies at The Warehouse in Queenstown like we did! This is a great choice.

Breakfast in the morning was delicious as well as the coffee, tea, and cookies you had access to at any time. Loved the rooms, the relaxing outdoor space, and having access to complimentary laundry. The cottage was in a great location, walking distance to wanaka lake and the wanaka tree, as well as a short distance to the town center and restaurants. This was an amanzing bed and breakfast, we wish we could have stayed longer and would recommend it to anyone passing through wanaka

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Elegant house with good spa facility.
Cons: Location is a bit far from main town, at least not walkable.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: When making the booking, I had not realised that this was not a hotel (did not read the description accurately) so was totally surprised and rather worried we were in the wrong place when we arrived at a beautiful, modern house. Knocking on the door, with some trepidation, Nicky, a charming lady, one half of the owners of this delightful B&B, opened the door and confirmed we were in the right place. Nicky was a cook and a very good one, as her breakfast was superb, the best we had "down under", while her husband James, is a wine maker and a very competent one, as at 6 p.m., as part of the hospitality the couple offers wine and canapes to the guests. The rooms and bathroom facilities are well appointed and the 3 rooms (available to rent at the property) all look out at an attractive garden. The only minor concern was that we arrived, as winter was about to set in (there was frost on the ground in the morning) and the house did not have the time to properly heat up, despite the additional heater provided. The one drawback is the fact that you feel and that has nothing to do with the couple, who are terrific hosts that you are intruding on their privacy, walking about in their house, using their living room.

Pros: Susie, one of the managers was wonderful as were both of the chefs. We chose not to use housekeeping as we were in and out all day but they were also very nice. Great breakfast on the days Suzie was there as we could have special orders.
Cons: The room was VERY small. Hard to move around. For that price we expected more. No TV in the room. Asked if I could do a load of laundry but was never told if would be $25. Stayed all over NZ and NEVER dealt with a laundry fee. Housekeeping said they told my husband but they hadn't. Saw the sign AFTER clothes were in the wash. Dryer did not work so hung the clothes all over our bathroom. I questioned the charge but the new owner wouldn't budge or talk to me. I had seen him but over the three days he never introduced himself or was at all welcoming. We were given NO MAP and google maps took us to the wrong place. Spent an hour trying to find it. Please add written directions to your communication. Be aware they do not take Am Ex.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast, evening canapés and wine are included in the room package and they are very good. Both our hosts were very hospitable and friendly, they also gave us some good travel suggestions. We also love the common living room ambience, it has a fireplace and good leather seats for guests.
Cons: We booked the place because we wanted to use its heated pool, but to our disappointment, it wasn’t available for our use at that point - the host explained that they just changed the water hence it’s not hot enough for use...

Pros: The room was generously sized, comfortable bed and pillows with extra warm blankets for the cold weather. The heating was excellent. A bar fridge in the room accommodated our supplies for sandwich-making - kitchenette off the hall with facilities for preparing food. The bathroom was toasty with under floor heating and lots of lights. Had all the little things - shower cap, hairdryer, etc. The jacuzzi was great! And the view was phenomenal! Breakfast was delicious and the perfect size. We enjoyed lounging in the living room in front of the fire in the evenings before bed. Perfect for reading a book, having a wine, or planning tomorrow’s activities.
Cons: Negatives: Nothing - we loved it, we plan on staying here again!

4.5 Okay
Pros: Location was fine--parking was a problem. Room was clean - bathroom and shower were good.
Cons: This was not a luxury accommodation by any stretch of the imagination. Sheets were like sandpaper and very poor quality. Inadequate room lighting. Bathroom was heated but room was freezing. The small wall heater unit could not begin to warm up the room even after an hour on high. We had to wear our jackets in the room. Hosts were nice but dressing in cut off jean shorts with holes, a tee shirt and flip flops to cook breakfast was not appropriate.

Pros: Nice location
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location with short walking distance to the lake, restaurants & shops. We had a family unit which had a separate bedroom as well as a double bed in the main room. It was all extremely comfortable and great value. There is a seating area outside on the patio with a peep of the lake. For even better views, ask for an upstairs apartment. Added bonus was Molly the cat who will visit you if you like cats! Would highly recommend this property to someone looking for a comfortable but affordable holiday.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: The motel had everything we needed and, as it had two large beds in separate sleeping areas , it was perfect for my adult son and I. The balcony had a great view and it was only a short walk down into town. The pillows were great and we had a comfy sleep.The unit was clean, spacious (we had a one bedroom unit), warm and sunny.
Cons: There is a lot of road noise but with the windows shut you can't really notice it. Bigger towels would have been nice as they barely went around me (but I probably need to lose weight!). The walk back up the steep stairs to the property is a bit hard for those with mobility issues or if you are not very fit so maybe worth redoing those so they are easier and safer to use.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Great location with our own balcony with lovely view. Decent sized room with good facilities. Nice comfortable bed and room.
