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

Manapouri is mainly start point to Doubtful Sound day trip (worth to do by good weather - and we had it)) but stay in Cathedral Peaks B&B is as well memorable experience. Rooms are big wit excellent view on snowy mountains across Manapouri Lake. Breakfasts were swerved like in the 5-star hotel. Janice is very nice and helpful host maintaining... 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

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!
