We stayed at Manapouri as a starting point for our drive up to the Mildford sound - and it is really a handy location for the wonderful 2.5 hours drive. The house is well located right at the waterfront and easy to find. We stayed in one of the downstairs rooms next to the living room area of the guests.... More

On arrival, Janice was quite confused, as she had forgotten to write down our booking. No problem, within minutes she had everything organised and we got a very big and nice room. Next morning at breakfast we found a very nice table with an overload of food and then Janice asked us if we wanted a cooked one. jAnice is... More

Yes I was a little on confused on your arrival but not because I had not booked you in on the right day, but only because in my mind I was a day out, your booking was at all times written in and secure. I am pleased you enjoyed you stay. Janie More

Janice and Neal are great hosts, we enjoyed our two nights at the B&B, had excellent continental and cooked breakfasts - and a great view on the lake in the morning. What else can you ask for?! Next time I'ld opt for a room on the ground floor, so.

This is a great B&B and Janice made us most welcome. The view over Lake Manapouri is fantastic from the downstairs rooms, a little muted from upstairs but a great view of Cathedral Peaks to compensate. The rooms, (we came back for a second night after a cruise) have all you could wish but may be a little warm in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cathedral Peaks B&B, the view from the bedrooms and sitting room were amazing! Janice was very helpful in offering us advice of activities we could do, and we were not disappointed by any of them. Despite having an early drive up to Milford Sound, Janice was still willing to make us breakfast and... More

We had the pleasure of staying here over New Year 2014 and it is one of the best B&B's we have stayed in, not just in NZ! The room we had was in the ground floor with breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. The facilities were top quality and the service and breakfast provided by Janice were 1st class.... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I also still enjoy the lake and mountain views and I do enjoy breakfast time when I have a little time to catch up with my guest and find out what you all are doing for the day and try to help you in any why I can. Manapouri indeed is a small quiet... More

Lovely small Bed & Breakfast with amazing lake view rooms. Very nice hostess, and the breakfast choices were great. The B&B is positioned only minutes away by car or walking from the Pearl Harbour where the boats and ferries to Doubtful sound depart.

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
