“Superb!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

The view from the bedroom at all hours and in all weathers across the lake to the Mountains all around is truly memorable. This combined with a great property, warm welcome, quality rooms, bed and food make this a great place to stay

One of the best places we stayed in during our entire trip. We had a ground floor room (recommended for the super lake views) which was a good size and well equipped with fridge. tea, coffee etc. plus complimentary fruit and snack bars. An excellent cooked breakfast is served in the comfortable guest lounge. On arrival we discovered that our pre-booked Doubtful Sound trip would now be leaving at 7:30 not 9:00 as we thought. Janice went beyond what we could reasonably expect and produced a full breakfast for us at 6:45. Much appreciated.

We stayed here for 2 nights on26/27th november 2012. We had a downstairs room and the views of the lake are gorgeous. The room is really spacious, very comfy bed, and tea/coffee facilities with little snacks and biscuits which is a lovely touch. There is a lounge for guests with a sofa, lovely views and a laptop for internet use in the lounge. This is the room where we had breakfast, which was plentiful, delicious and the muffins are fantastic. Janice is a wonderful host, friendly, pleasant and helpful, and this is a relaxing, clean and welcoming place to stay. Thank you.

We had a very warm welcome, a nice room and every day a perfect breakfast with selfmade marmelade and muffins was offered (best muffins ever had).

The B&B is perfect located to visit Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound and it is far enough from the "standard bus tourist" - a relaxing surrounding.

Room Tip: We had a room at the ground floor with a wonderful view to the lake.

Far more appealing than noisier Te Anau, Manapouri is a charming lakeside town on the edge of nowhere, the perfect place to spend a couple of nights when heading for the Doubtful Sound. Cathedral Peaks fits right in with this theme, being a delightful little B&B overlooking the lake and wihtin a 2 minute drive of your departure.

I'm not a big fan of B&B's in general as you really are staying in someone else's house, but Janice makes you feel right at home with a slap up breakfast, big clean, well equipped with a stunning lakeside view and stackful of DVDs for a quiet night in. On top of it all we got a free upgrade! We were delighted with our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a lakeside room. The view is stunning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our night in Manapouri. We chose the B&B as it was close to the departure point for our cruise on Doubtful Sound. Janice gave us a very friendly welcome and even looked out some DVDs for us to watch as my wife mentioned she was in the mood to watch a film. She also gave us some good tips of places to see in our short time in the area and we made the short drive to Te Anau which was not far at all. The breakfast was a really high standard and we also had a few snacks and things in the room which was a nice touch. I would stay again and would recommend to anyone. Only slight issue was that I would say that it is slightly expensive but all in all I'd say it was good value.

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed this wonderful place.
We had a lovely room with a picture window which overlooked the beautiful lake.
Janice is a very friendly host with very high standards; her home is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. She enjoys sharing her wealth of knowledge about the area and will help you book trips which are right for you, simply ask for her advice when you book.
Janice serves a delicious breakfast, complete with muffins - as her breakfast was so big we ate the muffins later. Breakfast is served in the spacious guest lounge which also has large picture windows.
