“A Country B&B”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Silver Peaks Lodge is a working sheep farm and we enjoyed the farm demonstrations. The accommodations were nice and the views from the "farm house" were fantastic. The lodge offers fully cooked breakfasts which were outstanding. The weather during our stay was rather cool but some of the rooms didn't have heaters and electrical outlets, particularly in the bathrooms, were limited.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are really sorry you felt the cold during your stay and we do apologize for not checking with you. We have a heat pump in the guest bedroom area and there are fan heaters in all the bathrooms plus in the winter we have underfloor heating. We would certainly have given you another heater if we had known you were feeling the cold. If you ever come and visit us again please don't hesitate to ask. Many thanks again and best wishes.
Chrissie and Michael.

When we first went to Silver Peaks, we thought we were at the wrong place. We sure were glad it was correct. It was a big and beautiful house with a farm full of friendly animals and fantastic view. Everyday we hear the beautiful chirping of birds with the wonderful view of hills and mountains and farm animals. There was even a farm demonstration and hot or cold breakfast depending on your preference. The hosts were very kind, friendly and helpful people. Would have loved to stay there longer or even retire in a place like that.

We stayed at the Silver Peaks Lodge for just one night as a stop over in Dunedin, on our way to Queenstown. We were travelling with another family so had 3 rooms. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was divine. We had a fully cooked breakfast, cereal, fruit, tea, coffee etc. It was delicious. The breakfast table was set up so nicely and the view from the dining room was fantastic. The house has a lovely country feel. We had an enjoyable time, although it was a short stay we would highly recommend it. Chrissy is a lovely lady and will be sure to look after you. Thanks Chrissy for making our stay a pleasant one!

We took the biggest room for 2 night stay in end May 2013. The weather was surprisingly cold and even snowed. The room and bathroom did not have heater. Fortunately, we were the only occupants staying there for that 2 nights, we requested for the portable heater along the corridor to be pushed into our room. Chrissy was very nice to let us bring it in.

The service provided by the hosts was very nice. The breakfast provided was enjoyable with much surplus. Yes the place is tired and dated but all the same provides an idyllic setting. The BB is easy to find.

Only booked this place as was the only place available for the night at reasonable distance from Dunedin as Aerosmith was in town.Dunedin city is only a 15-20 mins drive away. Chrissy was very welcoming. The bed was very comfortable. The room I had was quiet with beautiful country views. I loved the decor. And with breakfast in the morning..... what more can one ask for.
