We decided to stay at Pencarrow after reading reviews here. Even the glowing reviews did not do this place justice. Pencarrow was by far the best place we stayed in NZ, thanks to the amazing hospitality of owners Bill and Kari. Bill greeted us at the airport and drove us back, where we received a warm welcome from Kari. The place was gorgeous, with lake views and lovely grounds. Our hosts made our stay special at every moment, from (free) wine served at the bar each evening, to gifts left on the pillow, to overwhelmingly delicious 4 course breakfasts, to dessert left in our rooms every night, to recommendations about places to go and things to see, to restaurant reservations. Hospitable doesn't even begin to cover it. Bill and Kari were kind, warm, gracious, generous, and welcoming. I would recommend Pencarrow to anybody. This is the place to stay in Queenstown. You will have wonderful lasting memories here.
Best thing since bottled beer (as Bill, the Texan, would say)!
