We spent 3 nights in the Earnslaw room, the smaller of the two rooms available and the one without a lake view. It was the cheaper option, but we decided to take it as the guests’ very comfortable sitting room has superb views of the lake and has its own terrace with seating. As we only slept in our room,...

Ann welcomed us into her home with tea and biscuits after our long drive. The view from the lounge is breathtaking and it's hard to pull yourself away from looking at it. Ann is full of local knowledge and only too happy to make suggestions on where to go" it's well placed far enough away from buzz of the town... More

Sue made us most welcome in her lovely home with fantastic views over Quentown and Lake Wakatipu. This B & B is ideally situated away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Queenstown, but close enough to enjoy the hustle and bustle when required. Nothing was too much trouble for out particular needs. A memorable stay and certainly to be... More

As we were in Queenstown for a few days we wanted accommodation that was close to the centre of town 2-3 mins drive or about 15-20 mins via lakeside walk or streets, had views, was self contained including full kitchen, laundry and separate living space, this ticked all these boxes. Only negative was that wifi was very weak. Sue the... More

My 10 year old son and I stayed with Sue at the start of a 5 week adventure, travelling in New Zealand and beyond. (It was a year ago (March 2014), and we are feeling wistful that we are not there now!). It was a long journey from the UK, so it was lovely to arrive somewhere so calm and... More

This lovely house has the most stunning views possible over the lake and towards Queenstown. Sue is a delightful hostess, the rooms are gorgeous, clean and with comfy beds and luxury shower rooms ensuite. The continental breakfast is delicious. The views mean that the house is uphill from Queenstown but only a short walk. Thoroughly recommended.

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

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.
