We loved the welcome we were given by Caroline when we arrived at Criffel Peak - warm muffins on the patio and a much needed cup of tea. We cannot fault this B+B; breakfast was great, bed was comfortable and accommodation spotless. We particularly welcomed the help with booking an evening meal - Francescas in the town only ten minutes... More

This is an excellent place to stay. The ladies who run this B & B are excellent hosts and run a delightful establishment. Accomodation good, breakfast good and they are full of recommendations as to what to see in the area. Highly recommended. Wanaka itself is a little gem, far far superior to Queenstown, wished we had known this before... More

This B and B is five minutes walk from Wanaka town centre and lakefront (ten on the way home). Surrounded by peaks, it's a fab location for all things outdoors. Caroline and Susy are a mine of information about local activities (they've done them all) summer or winter. Our welcome was warm and lively, the room very nice if a... More

Visited in March – stayed four nights in the Apartment (not the B&B) - truly outstanding. Caroline was terrific – got in touch with us ahead of our arrival to maximize our convenience, then greeted us shortly after we got settled in, offered suggestions about hikes etc. The accommodation itself was more spacious that anticipated. There were no funny odors,... More

Caroline and Susie, hostesses of Criffel Peak, are extremely helpful and friendly and really go the extra mile to ensure that everything is perfect. Our room was immaculate; we were offered tea and snacks when we arrived; they were full of suggestions and advice and they even called to book the various restaurants and activities that we were interested in....

This apartment definitely delivers on all it promises. Great view from the front deck and has a back deck as well which means one is always in the sun. The kitchen is well equipped (ended up cooking all our meals in for our 2 days) and having a BBQ was a nice touch. Very well set up with 1.5 baths,... More

We were greeted by Caroline offering us home made muffins and tea. Lovely spotlessly clean accommodation. Super breakfast with Suzie joining us for a lot of laughter. She's Welsh so don't mention the English rugby game !!!! They gave us lots of information which we have made us of. Would highly recommend.

because they were filled up, Caroline and Suzie upgraded us to the apartment, directly up the hill from the BnB. It was enormous, well equipped, nicely furnished and had a great view. It would easily accommodate 5 or more people. Breakfast was good, muesli, yogurt, cereal, homemade muffins, fruit and eggs mad to order. The hosts were friendly and helpful.... More

Suzie and Caroline were great hosts, well organised and friendly. We occupied the smaller queen bed room with ensuite which provided ample space for us for our two night stay. Delicious breakfasts with great options of eggs/bacon or pancakes as well as cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt and Carolyn's homemade jams. We appreciated Suzie and Caroline's suggestions of activities and... More
