John and Amanda set the bar high for any other accomodations. Their warm welcome, attention to detail, and beautiful property may make you want to move in! The location is outside of Queenstown so you do need a car, but then it is easy to get to Arrowtown, Wanaka, the airport, Glenorchy, and Milford Sound. John seems to have hiked... More

This lovely house in beautiful surroundings is just outside Queenstown so it is important to have a car. Amanda and John were amazing hosts who could not do enough to make sure our stay was perfect. And it was. The meals and breakfasts were really good. The rooms were very comfortable. It was fun feeding and "talking" to the pet... More

We loved staying at this spacious luxury B&B. The hosts, Amanda & John are very knowledgeable about the area & just delightful! The breakfasts are imaginative & delicious. The welcoming dinner was one of the best we had in all of New Zealand - Amanda is a fabulous chef! There are 3 bedrooms here. Each is very roomy, has lots... More

We had spent several years planning a trip of a lifetime to Oz and New Zealand and this was our first stop and stay after leaving Sydney. We agree with another reviewer that after staying here the bar had been set extremely high and may have been hard to beat. From the moment we arrived Amanda and John and made... More

We were only in Queenstown Country Lodge for 2 nights but could have stayed forever. A real highlight of our 1 month trip and we shall definitely visit again (sadly not for 18 months before our next trip....) Amanda & John are lovely people and their attention to detail is outstanding. We ate dinner 'at home' for both nights (as... More

We stayed with Amanda and John at the beginning of our 6 week holiday in New Zealand and when we left commented to them that they had really given everyone else something to live up to! Six weeks later and we have returned home after staying in some wonderful places with delightful hosts but Queenstown Country Lodge is still number... More

Ira J, A perfect experience. Amanda and John are helpful, even to the point of helping us trade in our lousy rental car. Amanda cooks delicious food, and in the case of the dinner is matched by selected wines that John has recommended, which follows the complimentary wine tasting. That tasting is a perfect time, in addition to the meeting... More

Five Star accommodation, five star hosts Amanda and John offer the warmest of welcomes. The accommodation to which there are three rooms is wonderful. The views from the bedrooms are stunning. Each evening the guests are offered a wine tasting, it's not obligatory but it's a great way to meet your hosts and other guests. The property is very well... More

We cannot praise too highly our stay with Amanda and John. The room was lovely, the views were beautiful and we would recommend the food and wine, which considering the amount we drank, was very reasonably priced. In fact we enjoyed two of the best meals of our stay in New Zealand. Add lengthy discussions about cricket and rugby, a... More
