Really enjoyed our stay. The hosts are so very friendly. Fabulous breakfast. Lovely mountain and lake views from our room and balcony. Immaculately clean. My only complaint is there is no air conditioning, which probably wouldn't matter most of the time, but we had unusually hot weather - almost 90F. We enjoyed the village shops and restaurants. Highly recommend it!

My wife and I stayed here for two night on our honeymoon and it was the most relaxing and welcoming B&B we have ever stayed at. We arrived and Don was waiting to greet us. He introduced us to the property and helped us plan out our days by giving us directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. The next morning we were... More

My husband and I stayed at Aspiring Lofts for two nights. We would have stayed longer, but they had another booking. Our room was spacious and very nicely decorated with modern decor. Plenty of room for luggage and seating areas. The room had a mini kitchenette which was very handy. The good sized bathroom had lots of natural light. Our... More

Don and Lorraine made us feel like special guests in their home. Lorraine's muesli and muffins were fabulous!! And Don's eggs were incredible!! Their hospitality and interest in us made our stay one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand.

Stayed just for one night and wished that it could have been for a longer period. The accommodation at this B&B is delightful. Big comfortable bed. Spotless bathroom. Kitchen facilities enabling you to prepare drinks easily. Very hospitable hosts. Tasty breakfast and we were given take away muffins as we hadn't been able to manage them at breakfast. A lovely,...

We stayed at the Aspiring Lofts in November. We found very clean and modern rooms with lots of space. Don and Lorraine are amiable and attentively hosts. Don is a perfect cook and served a great breakfast. Perfect location for your stay. Greetings from Germany to Wanaka!

Aspiring Lofts represents the very best in NZ B&Bs. Luxurious accommodation, wonderful views and delightful hosts. We were determined to return three years after our first visit. Three years ago the room was so immaculate we felt we must have been he first visitors to use it. Three years later we felt just the same. Many thanks for inviting us... More

My husband and I stayed here with another couple in October. The rooms had everything we needed and were very comfortable. The rooms are quite large and include an eat-in area. This would be a great place to stay for several days to fully take advantage of the proximity to the lake, the town, and all of the local activities.... More

My husband and I loved our one night stay at the Aspiring Lofts. Our hosts were great, the rooms very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was bountiful and we really enjoyed the willingness of Don and Lorraine to share a bit of their lives with us and suggestions for what we might do while there. Highly recommended.

Aspiring Lofts is a 21 carat gold, real diamond of a property with the most gorgeous views of the surrounding stunning scenery. Don & Lorraine are accomplished, friendly, knowledgeable and genial hosts who as a bonus, cook a mean breakfast too! Our two days in Wanaka/Aspiring Lofts were a highlight of our six week tour of NZ and South Australia.... More
