“A Real Treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2004

Just completed month long family vacation to New Zealand and Australia. In that month, we stayed at nine different places and this was indeed the BEST. Our host, Kerri and Bill, provided every courtesy and guided us on what to do. The food was excellent and plentiful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms were to die for with the heated tile floor. We can highly recommend to the most descriminating traveller. If you are going to Queenstown, treat yourself and stay here.

What a perfect experience. We have traveled all over the world and try and stay in the nicest places we can find. Pencarrow will always stay in our minds as one the best lodging experiences ever!

Bill and Kari are perfect hosts who thought of every detail to make our stay perfect. The combination of their warm hospitality (great stories) hotel location, décor (luxury rooms and fabulous bedding), and the food made our departure that much harder; we didn’t want to leave! Bill, Kari and their beautiful home will always be one of our fondest memories!

It is hard to add to the series of fully deserved 5 star reviews of Pencarrow. We stayed in September and we could not fault it. Kari and Bill’s attention to detail, in conjunction with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and just first class facilities makes it very special. If you are looking to stay here don’t hesitate. I guess you may have a couple of doubts – the cost may be a higher than you had budgeted for but in terms of value it is excellent. You may note the fact it is a few kilometres outside Queenstown but taxis are plentiful and cheap. Enjoy.

In February of last year we visited Queenstown, New Zealand. For three glorious evening we stayed at Pencarrow, a Qualmarked 5-star Guest and Hosted property. Our room was large, lovely and complete in every way. Breakfast was served daily. The array of food was simply spectacular and each dish was not only beautifully presented but delicious. Each day a snack (homemade of course) was delivered to our room. The attentive owners, Bill and Kari did all to make us feel comfortable and welcome. They are fonts of great information. Would we return? Absolutely!
