This business changed hands recently and the ratings and awards relate to the previous owners and thus are no longer relevant. Having stayed here before we were disappointed: less on offer and at a higher cost. On the plus side the bedroom was good, as was the breakfast. The new website makes reference to the hosts being a chef and... More

The wife and I stayed here as our first stop in the south island of NZ. This B&B is a short drive from the "downtown" and has a great view of the valleys and mountains all around.

Nicky and James are people you wish you had met years ago and could have as long term friends. So wonderfully helpful. I just hope they can keep this level up, it must be exhausting. Room lovely. Breakfast fabulous. A choice of Oz, NZ and rest of the world. [ Maybe you can pre- order which may help Nicky know... More

First of all, the hosts, Nicky and James, are a chef and winemaker (respectively). This makes for an absolutely winning combination as evidenced in the delightful breakfast made to order every morning (including professionally made espresso) and canapés with James' Black Peak wine in the evenings (the Pinot Gris and Reisling are fabulous). Nicky and James were so helpful and... More

I have been meaning to write this review for ages and on logging on was devastated to read that Pam and Peter are no longer running it.

We were able to stay for three nights with Nicky and James who were outstanding hosts. The accommodation is excellent and the spa bath was a definite highlight. We would highly recommend to anyone staying in Wanaka.

Wow, what a place. I think the photographs say it all. The rooms and the whole building are so attractive, clean and modern, and the views over Albert Town towards the mountains are amazing. It's a really peaceful and relaxing place. We didn't use the hot tub in the garden, but can imagine how beautiful the view of the night... More
