Happy visit here, and loved the views of the Lake. Excellent breakfast and outstandingly clean. We did have to share a bathroom across the corridor with our friends and you need to make sure to ask for a room with en-suite if this matters to you. Nice balcony to sit on. Owners helpful and gave good recommendations for jet boating... More

We stayed a few nights, the owners Bev and Ian are lovely, helpful yet discreet when you want time on your own. The house is very nice with astonishing views over the lake, from both he lounge and the bedrooms. We stayed in the room with an ensuite, very comfortable all round. I loved the ceiling heating lights in the... More

Arrived in Queenstown from Hong Kpng suitably tired and ready to allow time to acclimatise. First time in New Zealand. We had arranged to be met at the airport by our hosts and it was great to be greeted by Bev and driven direct to he home. It was every bit as good as we had anticipated from the details... More

My mother aged 93years and I stayed at Lake Vista which had stunning views and sunlight streaming in through the windows. Over and above the idyllic position was the welcome, the care and the kindness shown to us by Bev which made our stay most enjoyable. Bev even picked us up and dropped us off for our daily excursions which... More

The most perfect home from home. Bev McLenaghen could not be more welcoming. Perfectly positioned, amazing view. Great breakfast cooked to order. Comfortable spacious room ,ensuite shower room with heated towel rail and floor. Bev happily kept our room whilst we did the Milfordu Track. What a welcome to New Zealand. I cannot recommend too highly.

Set on the upslope of a hilly road, the view of The Remarkables and lake is what you first notice and appreciate when arriving at Lake Vista. The cosiness and cleanliness of the house, room and bathroom soon follows. We stayed in the Kingston room which shared a balcony with two other rooms. Each room has stunning views. The dining...

We spent 16 nights across NZ (both islands) in mostly B&Bs and a few hotels. We stayed in the last room which has the ensuite. All rooms offer amazing views of the Remarkables range and the Lake below, and even Queenstown Airport in the distance. Location is pretty, but bit of a drive (10 mins) into Queenstown town center where... More

Thank you for your review of Lake Vista B & B. We did enjoy having you stay with us. The drive into town takes 2 or 3 minutes, definitely not 10 minutes. If you are used to walking you can enjoy a scenic walk into town which takes 20 -25 minutes. More

If you are looking for an exceptional getaway destination then Queenstown is the place and i am sure we had the best view in Queenstown from our " home" for the weekend which was the Lake Vista B and B. Reasonably priced and only minutes from the town centre, we were pleasantly surprised by the cosy and comfortable set up... More

I decided upon Lake Vista B&B after looking at Trip Advisor's excellent reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The owners, Bev and Ian, really look after you and share their home. Bev cooks the best breakfasts, including Eggs Benedict, French toast, eggs and bacon and scrambled eggs with salmon. I stayed as a single in the Remarkables room. It had under... More

There is nothing much I can say but it was PERFECT! Bev and Ian are beautiful hosts that made the trip over the top. The rooms have everything you need and were very comfortable. The main room has the most spectacular panoramic view of the lake and mountains. The balcony from our room had the same view and I spent... More
