Staying at Penghana has made working away from home a pleasure. Penghana hosts Karen and Steve ensure guests are warmly welcomed and accommodated in comfortable, tastefully decorated rooms keeping with the history of this beautiful old home. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast is served in the grand dining room, as is dinner by prior arrangement.

We spent two nights at Penghana in the Owen room, which is a very large room and is furnished with beautiful antiques. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful with dinner recommendations and produced a hearty breakfast. There is guest parking and a short cut by foot to the town centre (don't forget to take a torch).

My family had a very pleasant stay with Steve and Karen. They were helpful with finding local attractions, and were great with the kids. Penghana is a beautiful old homestead, and is nicely decorated. Our room was spacious and private, with an excellent view over Queenstown and surrounding countryside. We will be back again next time we visit Queenstown.

Thanks so much for your comments. We certainly are enjoying our new business and the guests we meet. Yes there is so much more to Queenstown to what many people think and particularly regards the history of this house. We've discovered a menu (written in French) from a dinner here in 1905.
