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 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

John and Amanda put on what is very likely the best B&B experience you will ever have. We've traveled widely and prefer B&B's for the homey touch and contact with local residents and other travelers. I've never seen it done better. The house and rooms are spacious, inviting, and immaculate. The property is lovely - perfectly tended with sheep and... More

We could not have had a better time anywhere than we had with Amanda and John at their beautiful home. From the minute we arrived we were treated as friends, not guests, and made to feel so comfortable in every sense. Their knowledge enabled us to make the most of our time in Queenstown and we just had the best... More

John and Amanda have got everything spot on in their beautiful lodge, not far from busy Queenstown but far enough to be able to unwind and enjoy the stunning backdrop. Their expert advice meant that we were able to make the most of our three days in the area, with each of them jumping up to phone ahead to make... More

We have stayed in B and B's around the world and honestly, this one was our favorite to date! Amanda and John really get it right! Their hospitality, gorgeous accommodations, attention to detail, knowledge about the area, and fabulous breakfasts, dinner, and wine tastings with canapes cannot be beat!
