Great views from the lounge. Excellent breakfasts and Sue was a very helpful hostess. I was in the non lake view rom and if I go again would definitely opt for the room with the lake view. As well as the views it is not overlooked. I am a light sleeper and slept with my window open and was disturbed... More

Been said before by others but a really excellent find in this special town. Away from the crowds but close enough to walk. What a view, possibly the best of all our accommodation around NZ. Good internet and breakfasts. Spacious bedroom and shared lounge if needed. Too much to do in Queenstown. The TSS Earnslaw is a must. Thanks Sue.... More

We spent three nights here and really enjoyed our stay in Queenstown. This is a really beautiful B&B, and Sue was very pleasant and helpful. As everyone has mentioned, there is a fabulous view of the Remarkables and Humboldt Mountains from the living area and balcony of the house. It was unseasonably cold and windy when we were there, so... More

The B and B on the hill is simply a fantastic place to stay in Queenstown. From the moment you step through the door and out onto the verndah The Remarkables and the lake in front of them capture your eye. Sue, the owner, has done an amazing job of renovating the house and it now provides two ensuite rooms... More

A lovely place to stay, the view is incredible and the rooms are extremely comfortable. Sue is an excellent host who makes you feel very at home, and the breakfasts are great. Only little quibble was that the fridge in our room was a bit noisy but it's a small thing. Would highly recommend staying here.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Fridges do tend to disturb light sleepers (including me!). They can be turned off if they disturb guests. Next time remind me and I will have it switched off for you! More

beautiful house , very luxurious and welcoming. The beds are exceptionally comfortable with high quality linen and great views / Sue is a gracious hostess who manages in a very elegant way to be there and yet give you enough privacy and space to enjoy the beautiful living room with the amazing views. Highly recommended

Pros: *room was large and very clean *very comfy bed! *bathroom was large, great water pressure in the shower, lovely Manuka honey toiletries *the living room/breakfast area had the most INSANE VIEWS over the lake.

Thank you Ally for writing such a long and constructive review. I have a couple of comments I would like to make. The rate of $NZ 135.00 per night is a reduced price for the 'shoulder season' and does offer as you remark 'good value'! It's a tricky balance for an owner/host of a B & B to achieve- judging...
