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

Our stay with Sue Wilson at her superb home, high on the hill overlooking the town and water, was just a total treat. The view will take your breath away.

We recently had the pleasure of spending 3 nights at the B and B on the Hill in Queenstown. To be honest, we were feeling a little sad after leaving Wanaka, which we'd completely fallen in love with, and where we'd had a great stay at a fabulous b and b - well it turns out we need not have... More

I could spend all day just sitting in the common room looking out the sliding glass doors. Absolutely breathtaking. This a very reasonable place to stay for Queenstown (land of the overpriced!), so we were thrilled that it was available on the dates we wanted. Sue was very helpful yet gave us plenty of privacy, which we greatly appreciated. Breakfast... More

Thank you " nurse" Susan! We arrived midday, and me, not feeling well, and proceeded to take a 15 hour nap! Susan made us feel at home, letting us make soup in the kitchen, and just allowed us to relax and recuperate from our long journey.
