We were looking for a one-night stopover on our way to Queenstown from Christchurch and Richlyn Park in Geraldine checked that box. What we found was so much more, though! The house was easy to find. Evalyn greeted us warmly and showed us our room: large, tastefully decorated, and more than satisfactory in every way. She invited us to join... More

All we can do is absolutely endorse what all the others have written EXCEPT, you really ought to include evening meal with your b&b. Had gorgeously tender roast lamb and all the trimmings, including roast pumpkin which us Brits had never had before, wonderful.then for sweet Evalyn had made a passion fruit pavlova style roulade with fresh fruit, you'd have...

Richlyn Park is a phenomenal Bed and Breakfast just outside of Geraldine - a beautiful home; spotless, well appointed rooms; wonderful gardens; and extraordinary hosts. The fresh flowers in our room were such a nice touch. Evalyn and Rick Pitelin greeted us upon arrival and provided crackers, cheese, and wine. We were made to feel so welcome - Wow, what... More

This is the kind of B&B you always want to end up in: perfection all round. Richlyn Park B&B is not only built to the highest standards, on top of that it is being operated by a couple who clearly enjoys and knows what they are doing. From a warm welcome, a friendly chat on return in the evening to... More

We stayed here for a night during a month of touring New Zealand and it was easily the best b and b we stayed in. We were made to feel like friends not paying guests. The room was extremely comfortable and the breakfast superb. We even had home grown strawberries. I would recommend it most highly.

This has to go down as one of the best B & Bs we have ever stayed in. When we arrived Rick & Lyn made us feel at home and one of the family. The house is beautiful, built by Rick himself. Our bedroom was very spacious with a lovely walk in shower. Both bedrooms are on the ground floor... More

Our original booking, or so we thought, was with a competitor down the road. A double booking meant a quick relocation to Richlyn and didn't we get lucky. Others have described the property and the gardens wonderfully well. Rick and Evelyn were warm, engaging and generous. Don't hesitate.

We were made to feel at home from the outset by this welcoming couple in their beautiful home. The accommodation beats any hotel and in addition Rick and Evalyn were good company. From tea and scones on arrival to a welcome glass of wine in the evening followed by a wonderful breakfast we felt spoilt. On top of that, the... More

We stayed here on our journey between .Queenstown and Nelson and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful with manicured gardens, surrounded by farmland. The house was modern, immaculate and very comfortable. Fresh roses from the garden were a lovely touch. We were invited in by Rick and Evalyn for a glass of wine after our dinner at the... More

We were thrilled to have spent a night with our hosts Evalyn and Rich. This is a beautiful home and the hosts made us feel welcome and were incredibly friendly and helpful. We were reluctant to leave the next morning. Breakfast was fantastic.
