We recently stayed for 3 nights at Aspiring Lofts and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Don and Lorraine were delightful hosts. We enjoyed our many conversations with them and they made us feel very welcome. The room (we stayed in the West Loft) was absolutely lovely! The views of the lake and mountains (both from the room and the breakfast area)... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Aspiring lofts. The apartments are well presented, well looked after, with all the details and amenities you need. As mentioned by others, the views of the lake and mountains are stunning. The weather was so mild we could sit and watch the treble cone ski-field groomer's work at night from the balcony. It...

My fiancé and I recently stayed in the East loft for 3 nights on a skiing holiday to Wanaka, and wow, what a place! The lofts are finished to a very high standard and are immaculate. The views from the balcony over lake Wanaka and the mountains are stunning. Lorraine and Don are fantastic hosts and made us feel really... More

We are a bit late in writing this review but recent reviews show that the standard hasn't fallen. The room was really comfortable, the view of the mountains from the balcony and the dining room was beyond stunning, the breakfast was cordon bleu and Don was a fantastic host. Sitting around chatting with him while he cooked was a delight.... More

Yes, this is our third stay at the great B&B hosted by Don and Lorraine, and this time for a whole week. What can be more exhilarating than spending seven days in the glowing Autumn Colours of Central Otago, returning home each evening to Aspiring Lofts comfort, and after such a comfortable nights rest, sit before those delightful 'Don' breakfasts...

Arrived earlier in the day than expected but were given a warm welcome by Don & Lorraine. We were their only guests that night. The two B&B rooms are next to each other with a separate entrance at the side of the house. The rooms are spacious, very clean and extremely comfortable with superb views from the balcony. Having spent... More

We stayed in East Loft and the very spacious room was really tastefully done and had great views of the lake and mountains from the private patio area. Everything was of an exceptionally high standard and the bathroom/ shower room was very stylish and spotlessly clean. Don advised us where to eat and we tried Relishes cafe which was good.... More

Our stay at aspiring lofts was such a pleasure. The rooms and ensuite are lovely and new and very well maintained and furnished with quality materials. We very much liked the under floor heating in the bathroom. Although it was a bit chilly to sit out when we were visiting, the balcony has a lovely outlook to wanaka lake and... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Asprings Lofts. Beautifully appointed room, comfy bed, spacious bath, great breakfast in the AM and very accommodating hosts! They took time out to give us feedback on places for dinner, hiking and shopping. They also had maps available to help us get around town.

We are coming to the end of a BnB tour of New Zealand. The standard generally is very high. Even so, Aspiring Lofts stands alongside the best. Clean is a given. Beautifully furnished and well equipped. Don is a splendid host ( Lorraine was away having been let off for good behaviour ). He was most helpful. He booked us... More
