This is a very nice b&b situated within easy walking distance to the restaurants & water-front. We were very warmly greeted by the effervescent hosts Carolyn & Suzie who gave us an enthusiastic guide to all the activities and best restaurants in Wanaka. There's a comfortable patio area with nice garden to relax in the evening with a bottle of... More

My bf Anson and I stayed in this B&B for one night on 6Dec. It was such an unforgettable nice stay! Host: Caroline was such a nice and helpful host. Smooth check in. She gave us great tips on restaurants which turn out really delicious. She also helped us book skydiving and suggested a suitable height level for us. We... More

We stayed here for 1 night in early April with my husband and both our mothers and we were so impressed! The place is HUGE, spotless and has all the amenities you will ever need (a huge kitchen with all the pots/pans/utensils etc, washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms, and a garage to park your car). You have spectacular patio with... More

We stayed here in 2013 April. Two Couples on our first trip to the NZ. We had planned to use Wanaka as a "travel stop"! How wrong were we. We should have spent atleast two, preferably three nights at this place. It was one of the BEST EQUIPPED and tastefully furnished apartment in our 20 days NZ trip. Brilliant views... More

Can't say enough about this delightful place. The lovely hosts, Caroline and Suzy, know everyone and everything in and about Wanaka. Their B&B is large enough for a group of 10 or so and sumptuously comfortable. Their breakfasts are delicious with lots of fresh fruit and healthy options. They also go out of their way to help with activity bookings... More

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.
