Hello PT, I am glad the weather was good so you all could enjoy a summer BBQ. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay in Lismore Cottage and yes that morning coffee in the garden is good, I try to do that most mornings. I hope the rest of your trip was good. Warm regards, Claire More

This purpose built B & B was very beautiful, with free wifi with a fast connection, laundry facilities, a lovely garden to sit in and a good breakfast. It also has a hot tub which we didn't try out this time. It has the feel of a small hotel rather than the more homely B & Bs we've been used... More

We stayed here for our two blissful nights in Lake Wanaka and enjoyed every second. Breakfast was delicious, the rooms lovely, friendly & welcoming owner. Great location with a mountain view, felt like I was skiing in the Alps especially with the friendly communal breakfast table!

Room did not live up to previous reviews. Had to hang our dangling shower curtain, even then not enough hooks. Room not cozy due to poor lighting. Breakfast good. Nice location. Seemed overpriced. Overall we expected more.

Stayed here while attending a conference at Rippon Valley. Absolutely perfectly situated. Hostess lady was superb and could not do enough for me. Would have no hesitation staying there again, in fact I will at the first opportunity.

We spent two nights at the Wanaka Lodge and Cottages, staying in a small but cheerful and highly functional room in the Lodge. The Lodge is squeaky clean, has a lovely sitting room area, has 24 hour availability of biscuits (aka cookies), tea, coffee, and a nice cooked breakfast. Laundry room available gratis, which we found in a couple of... More

We travelled round New Zealand for several weeks staying in 9 different places and Wanaka Homestead stands out as the best! The rooms are clean, modern and large yet manage to feel homely. Our host was very welcoming and there's plenty of useful things included in your stay - a free laundry room, bikes to borrow (also free), a barbecue... More

Hello Matt, Thank you for your review, so glad you had a great time with us here and in Wanaka. It's still a bit chilly, I had to put the fire on again last night. I got the key by the way, thanks again for that. Maybe on your next trip we will see you again. Warm regards, Claire More

Booked 2 nights here as part of our south island trip. Pleasantly surprised when Sue upgraded our room from the lodge to the cottage as there was a large family staying at the lodge at the same time. The cottage was comfortable, clean and a good base for skiing as well as sight seeing.

My wife and I stayed here while on a skiing trip. It was great! The location is perfect for skiing Treble Cone. Our room was warm and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. The building has a lot of charm, and the hot tub and drying room were especially appreciated after a day on the slopes. The owners were friendly, accommodating... More
