We spent three nights here and really enjoyed our stay in Queenstown. This is a really beautiful B&B, and Sue was very pleasant and helpful. As everyone has mentioned, there is a fabulous view of the Remarkables and Humboldt Mountains from the living area and balcony of the house. It was unseasonably cold and windy when we were there, so... More

The B and B on the hill is simply a fantastic place to stay in Queenstown. From the moment you step through the door and out onto the verndah The Remarkables and the lake in front of them capture your eye. Sue, the owner, has done an amazing job of renovating the house and it now provides two ensuite rooms... More

A lovely place to stay, the view is incredible and the rooms are extremely comfortable. Sue is an excellent host who makes you feel very at home, and the breakfasts are great. Only little quibble was that the fridge in our room was a bit noisy but it's a small thing. Would highly recommend staying here.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Fridges do tend to disturb light sleepers (including me!). They can be turned off if they disturb guests. Next time remind me and I will have it switched off for you! More

Thank you Ally for writing such a long and constructive review. I have a couple of comments I would like to make. The rate of $NZ 135.00 per night is a reduced price for the 'shoulder season' and does offer as you remark 'good value'! It's a tricky balance for an owner/host of a B & B to achieve- judging...

We stayed a couple of nights and really loved the panoramic view of Lake wakitipu from the lake room. The room was very comfortable and cosy. The continental breakfast was also excellent with homemade muesli, fruits, yoghurt, and a yummy warm crossoint. Really close to the town centre as well. Thanks for a memorable stay Sue! - Aaron and Jane
