We arrived on a wet cold evening and Caroline and Suzie welcomed us with hot tea and muffins. That set the tone for our whole stay - our hosts were caring and generous. Caroline called a few restaurants to find us a place to eat dinner and made great recommendations for hikes for the next day. We stayed two nights.... More

We could not have had a warmer welcome than we got from Suzie and Caroline. The whole stay was exceptional, from their recommendations for restaurants to their wonderful breakfasts. They have created such a sociable place, where everyone feels like family for their short stay, a real feat. Wanaka is a place no-one should miss, and it would be all... More

We were referred by another B&B owner to Caroline and Suzie when we arrived ahead of schedule in Wanaka and found everything booked up. How lucky we were! They are incredible hosts, just bubbling over with enthusiasm and very knowledgeable - whatever you want to know they will immediately either have the answer or turn over every stone to find... More

We stayed one night at Criffel Peak, we wished it could have been longer. This is a five star establishment that is run by two super ladies, Suzie and Caroline. We were lucky in that we were upgraded to a very large apartment, so spacious you wouldn't even find the cat if you wished to swing it: which we didn't.... More

We arrived at Criffel Peak, were greated by Suzie and Caroline and offered a cup of tea. Whilst chatting over tea my husband happened to mention that he was having a little bit of trouble with his shoulder, which was concerning him as we were off climbing for the week. Within minutes a recommended sports massage appointment had been made,... More

One month after our stop in Wanaka, Criffel Peak view was one of our best memories thanks to Caroline and Suzie who have been so nice! Comfortable and spacious room, great advices, great breakfasts, and very funny conversations ! If you pass by Wanaka, don't hesitate one second :)

The B&B is located a short walk from town, the accommodation is of an excellent modern standard, Caroline and Susie were fun, always ready with recommendations to suit their varying... More

This was definitely one of our favourite places to stay. We arrived in Wanaka, thoroughly enjoyed our first couple of days, and extended our stay further. So much to experience and a very beautiful location too. Suzie and Caroline made us very welcome - freshly baked cakes on arrival with a friendly cup of tea and chat. Their enthusiasm and... More

Suzie and Caroline are dream hostesses. They welcome you with tea and pastries, and are curious, helpful, and kind every minute. We loved the wonderful bathtub that comes with the room of twin beds. Even though the bath is outside the room, we were never uncomfortable, and robes are provided if you like. The breakfasts were huge, delicious, and lively... More
