My husband and I stayed here the night before our cruise of Doubtful Sound. Janice was extremely friendly and helpful, and the whole place was immaculate. Our room was bright and cheerful, with big windows giving us an unobstructed view of Lake Manapouri and the mountains. Janice fixed us a wonderful breakfast and she packed up our leftover homemade muffins... More

The room was well appointed and the food was good - but the room had a poor view, was stinking hot with no ventilation, and the hosts were just really annoying - eg didn't allow an open door to the dining room when there were no other guests.

Wow what an interesting review and evaluation, so how to answer it. I will start with the ventilation, yes there is a window 126mm x53mm and opens 103mm in the bedroom that opens, but as per New Zealand building safety regulations it can only open 100mm on a catch., but in the en-suite there is a window 108mm x 94mm...

This was our favorite place in all NZ! Absolutely beautiful setting, wonderful hostess, very comfortable and well decorated. Great breakfasts, too! Very convenient to Doubtful Sound cruises. Can't say enough good things about it. Only a 15 minute drive to Te Anau and its restaurants. We loved everything about it. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!

Cathedral Peaks B and B was a perfect place to stay after our wonderful overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound. Even though we were not staying until the next night, the hosts allowed us to leave our rental car and large cases there before we left for the cruise and the cruise bus driver picked us up and returned us there....

With Manapouri being the gateway to Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound this is an ideal location. The view of Cathedral Peaks over the lake is stunning to wake up to! The B&B is beautifully presented with all the mod cons you would expect of a 5* B&B. The host is friendly, very knowledgeable of the area and operates the B&B... More

You will enjoy your stay with Janice. The room is set up for comfort with nice bath products, fruit and chocolate basket and a wonderful view of the lake and mountains. The breakfast is perfect!

The view from the bedroom at all hours and in all weathers across the lake to the Mountains all around is truly memorable. This combined with a great property, warm welcome, quality rooms, bed and food make this a great place to stay
