While the house is cute, the biscuits and afternoon tea was delicious and the king ensuite looked very nice, my husband and I did not feel safe staying here. The locks on the bedroom doors do not work, and one of the doors to the outside does not even close entirely. Furthermore, a set of spare keys for anyone to... More

'Heritage' room for two was tiny. Just room for the bed, a suitcase and two people standing. The six double rooms shared just two bathroom/toilets. You can imagine the queue in the morning when 12 people are trying to shower/wash/go to the loo. Poor value for money. Each item at breakfast was separately priced - coffee, juice, food so it...

Stayed here during our honeymoon for 2 nights and it was probably the best part of our trip. Unbelievable scenery, beautiful house with awesome beds, great breakfast and loved the outdoor hot tub! Just a beautiful, relaxing place to really take you away from everything. Enjoy the slow pace of life here... it was gorgeous. The cafe next door is... More

Stayed two nights in January 2015. This is a lovely lodging. Has everything you need and is comfortable and quiet. Close to "town", spacious and airy with nice views from the decks. Breakfast very good with local produce and plenty of fresh fruit. They claim to make the best coffee in their adjacent Trading Post. They are right.

One of the best places I've ever stayed at. Beautiful scenery, the king room with ensuite is amazing and very comfortable. Great breakfast, fantastic location friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to anyone and would love to stay here again.

Excellent accommodations, fantastic breakfast. Comfortable bed and beautiful bath. Gorgeous view of the snow capped mountains. Comfortable common area and kitchen. Close to the lake, and a few shops and restaurants. Peaceful and stunning scenery.

Gorgeous situation. Our favourite memory of the 2 days was listening to the bird song and watching the mountains slowly emerge from the clouds this morning, whilst drinking coffee on the verandah. And second favourite was time sitting in the hot tub out in the garden - magical to hear the near-silence of evening with just the odd bird and... More

We were lucky to have this beautiful B&B to ourselves. The property is beautiful, spotless, and a joy. The hot tub is a great bonus! Breakfast was amazing - seriously one of the best breakfasts I've had at any B&B anywhere in the world. Delightful owners and manager as well. Glenorchy is a gem, especially once the LOTR tourists leave!... More

Thanks for your review. Glenorchy is starting to be very popular during the day and hence there are a lot of people in town and by the lake where the Glenorchy Lake House is located. When 4 pm hits, they all tend to head back to Queenstown and you will then appreciate the peace and tranquility of Glenorchy and will... More

Wish I had read that last review before staying here. Glenorchy is lovely but this 'Lake' house was outrageously overpriced. For a price that was more than a great room at Millbrook, we got no sound proofing from the people next door, a faulty lock between the rooms, a view of a car park instead of a lake and access...

We are sorry the guest found me "intransigent" When my manager phoned me I was trying to extricate young children from a birthday party and get them back to the boat to Kinloch that was leaving in 10 minutes time. The guest was asking to speak to me and despite being told the above, refused to let me call her... More

This is a nice timber cottage that is well appointed with a great bath and spa outside. The big king bed is also very comfortable and the accommodation is located in a convenient spot. However at $340+ per night it is completely overpriced for what you get. What gets worse, this price was just for the room, not even the... More

We're sorry these guests found the property over-priced. This is a bed and breakfast so there is just one lounge and dining area shared by guests, not a lounge and dining area each. The website clearly depicts what the property is a about. We offer a boat transfer to dinner at Kinloch which costs $15 per person each way. Most... More
