We stayed in the cottage for 2 nights in December and I have to say it was a delightful place to stay. The setting is very nice and the cottage itself has great amenities. The location is also acceptable with only a few minutes drive to town or about a 20 minute walk. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating... More

If you have a car it's a really good location, and a really calm zone near the city; the house is really cozy and welcoming - and so are the so lovely hosts. The bedrooms are ok, and the bathroom may be shared with other guests if you're not alone, but you have a shower & a bathtub at disposition.... More

Before staying at the Collinson's Cottage we had never stayed at a real B&B and I must say that Suzanne and Brian have set the bar high. Suzanne was so welcoming when we arrived and quickly showed us our very clean and well appointed room. She even provided a binder with local menus and gave us some restaurant recommendations. In...

We stayed there for a short stay- 1 night only- but the hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at home instantly. It was hard for the taxi to find the place as it was off the main road. The house and rooms were cosy but we had to share the shower (which was OK since we were staying... More

If you want to visit Wanaka (which you should!!!) and want to stay on a quiet place on walking distance from the center of the village, I advise you to book a place at Collinsons Cottage B & B. Not only will you find owners Susanne and Brian very pleasant hosts, but, as a couple, you will have the choice... More

Our stay at the Cottage was only for 2 nights but I wish we could have stayed longer as the cottage was fantastic, well laid out, gorgeous views and completely self contained. It was really like a home from home but with better views. Brian showed us around his fantastic garden and made us feel welcome without intruding on our... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Collinson's Apartment. The house is well equipped, the view from the balcony over the gardens gorgeous and the hosts were super friendly. Some of us being coffee fiends, we'd bought a coffee plunger just before arriving. We were pleasantly to surprised to find a moka pot on the shelf! Not only were their a... More

As you can see from the reviews below Susanne and Brian are truly thoughful hosts who will go the extra mile to ensure their guests have a wonderful stay. I left my spectacles behind at their B&B and they immediately posted them back to my address in Christchurch - they arrived home before I did! I highly recommend this B&B... More

Hi This is a long review, but I couldn't cut down anything about our experience... We were in NZ for our honeymoon, and planned to start our South Island tour with Wanaka. We did not want to have an expensive accommodation here, but just to relax, since, we had already booked an expensive one in Queenstown for our longer stay.... More
