Wow! This has to be the most beautiful stay we have had in New Zealand! The view from our Lake View bedroom is almost indescribable...photos don't even do justice to the actual scene of the lake and snow capped mountains! A most wonderful stay in our spacious and warm room in huge bed ... Lovely linen and luxurious Egyptian cotton... More

We stayed a couple of nights and really loved the panoramic view of Lake wakitipu from the lake room. The room was very comfortable and cosy. The continental breakfast was also excellent with homemade muesli, fruits, yoghurt, and a yummy warm crossoint. Really close to the town centre as well. Thanks for a memorable stay Sue! - Aaron and Jane

We stayed in the Lake View room for 3 nights. It was a wonderful stay. The view from our room and other parts of the house are incredible. It is only a short drive into the town centre and although we didn't do it, would be a relatively easy walk. Sue was very welcoming and provided a great continental breakfast... More

The place is perfectly located, rooms are clean, spacious and nicely decorated, the living room is cosy (we loved the wood stove) and views are just... wow. Sue is a lovely person who prepares delicious breakfast (croissants, fresh fruits, home made müsli...) and provides great tips. We will come back! R&F

It's been an extrodinary stay for us. Quality of room and facility no worse than a five star hotel. Warm and delicious breakfast prepaired by Sue, the best hostess ever, and resourceful infomation on local area. Would come back whenever we are in Queenstown.

We spent 3 nights at The B&B on the Hill during our recent trip around the South Island. It was without doubt our favourite place to stay.

This is the ideal spot with breathtaking views over the lake and within easy walking distance of the town. The rooms are large and comfortable and you also have use of a sitting room. Breakfasts are superb with homemade muesli, fresh fruit and delicious jams. Susan is a very helpful hostess and provides plenty of information for her guests together... More

Our room was cozy and clean with a Queen bed, mini fridge, nice and bright bathroom with a great shower. The room looked out to the front of the house and there was a nice patio outside. The living/kitchen area had fantastic views of the lake! There is also a nice big balcony. Continental breakfast consisted of homemade muesli, fresh... More

The views from this B&B are simply stunning. If that isn't enough of an attraction, then Sue's thoughtful little touches - the things she feels that she would need if staying in a B&B, like a multi-point extension cable - make this one perfect. Lovely warm croissants for breakfast, helpful tips - all reasons why we will be back. She... More

As a server in a restaurant said, "How can you have a bad day in Queenstown?" However, our stay at the B&B on the Hill made a perfect start to our New Zealand trip. The view is amazing, our room was spacious and our host, Sue, made us feel right at home. The 20-minute trek to the town center is... More
