We happened to visit Queenstown the same weekend the New Zealand Harley Davidson rally was going on (think Sturgis, but a smaller scale). In addition, the BMX championships were being held in town. Thankfully we had a reservation at the B&B on the Hill, as parking in town was non-existent and everything was overly busy. The B&B on the Hill... More

We stayed in 12 different places on our vacation, and this place was in a tie for first for our favorite. It is secluded from the main part of town, yet close enough that you can walk if you want. The views are just incredible as it sits well above the lake and has a full panoramic vista. Sue was... More

We had the Lake View Room that has stunning views over Queenstown and its lake. There are also incredible views from the dining/lounge area. All the furnishings are quality and the beds are extremely comfortable. The bathroom has quality fittings with a walk-in shower. The water pressure in the shower is very good. The continental breakfasts were delicious – home... More

This house having been totally refurbished less than five years ago looks new. The interior is decorated in a classic good taste manner. The large living room is a pleasant place to have tea and relax watching the lake view, the golf course and the mountains which are superb. Our room, "The Lake Room" has the same privileged views.

We really enjoyed staying with Sue!. The standard of the room we had was very high, ( we understand the house has been re worked in the last 4 years). Sue was very helpful and very welcoming. The view, whilst eating breakfast, was stunning!. We look forwards to being able to return next year!

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

Thank you so much for writing a review, I have been very tardy in my response. I am sorry you were disturbed. Generally the cul de sac is quiet but occasional, as everywhere, there can be activities amongst the local residential community. Also recently there has been work in the road putting in faster broadband, this has now finished, I... 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
