“Special Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

This is lovely lodge with owners who provide extraordinary hospitality. There are three large suites with beautiful views of grass-covered hills where sheep and deer graze. Each suite has sitting area, very nice bathroom and comfy bed. The breakfasts prepared by Amanda are superb. John's wine tasting was fun and informative. We really enjoyed ourselves.

After a long flight to Queenstown from San Antonio, TX it was wonderful getting picked up at the airport by John and taken to a beautiful, comfortable and luxurious suite. Waking up starving after eating airplane food, Amanda cooked the most delicious lamb dinner my husband and I had with these amazing wines. The following morning we had an incredible breakfast that required a hike to their backyard mountain to burn off some of the calories. It did feel like we were staying with friends and only regret not being able to stay longer.

We thought John and Amanda's lodge was very nice. The scenery was wonderful from our room/suite. The breakfast were wonderful and I especially liked the farm fresh eggs. John and Amanda were also very helpful with all of our travel questions. We fell in love with the pet sheep on the property. The lodge was very convenient to Queenstown, but still had that in the country feel. It was hard to leave.

This was Kiwi accomodation at its best- what an advert for this beautiful country. John and Amanda went all out to make this a really postive experience for their guests - not customers as some would describe - but guests in their lovely house with the challenge of a pre-breakfast walk up the hilll behind for those willing to leave thier comforable beds for one of Amanda's excellent breakfasts. We went out for a meal at one of the local vinyards and John took us there and collected us so that we could imbibe! Their own wines and canapes were spot on too. We would have liked to stay longer!

The very best of B&Bs without a doubt. Nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown, in such lovely surroundings .Every thing thought of in our luxurious room and bathroom. Much enjoyed the wine tasting and John's knowledge, sadly we were not able to enjoy Amanda's cooking but fellow guest were full of praise.
As ever helpful advice for onward journeys, much appreciated.

As the other reviews say it is amazing to stay here. You immediately feel at home. John and Amanda provide service they be on what one would expect. For example, when are shoes got dirty at a sheep farm John himself cleaned them for us. Needless to say this was unexpected. And their own sheep are wonderful to visit with too. Amanda maintains a standard of housekeeping that is truly beyond belief. We look forward to visiting again.

This was a top class B&B' extremely comfortable, the finer details addressed with aplomb. We could not have chosen better, Amanda's cooking is fabulous, don't miss Dinner there, the wine tasting hosted by John, is a lovely touch, he is very knowledgable and generous!

The rooms are clean quiet and smart.

This is a classy joint.
