Twin Peaks Bed and Breakfast,

Reviewed March 20, 2013

We stayed at Twin Peaks for five nights in February 2013. The home is beautiful and serene, the view is amazing, and the rooms are lovely and well-appointed. The location is very convenient - just a few minutes drive to downtown Queenstown, but also a perfect "home base" as our excursions took us in different directions each day. Owners Derek and Margaret are knowledgeable, welcoming hosts, and were quick to offer any assistance we needed. Breakfasts were a real treat - perfectly cooked eggs, and a nice array that included home-made poached fruits and preserves. We traveled half-way around the world to visit New Zealand, and were delighted with Twin Peaks.

This beautiful B&B offered all the amenities of the finest hotels in a homelike atmoshere. Our host were charming and assisted us in all our arrangements for side adventures. Breakfast was always terrific and they cater to all different diets and tastes. Wine and cheese each evening looking over the beautiful waters with lively conversation.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the water is quieter and offers beautiful sunrise and sunsets. It is close to the airp...

I spent two very lovely nights at Twin Peaks in February 2013. I received a very warm welcome from my hosts, Derek and Margaret and a very welcome and cold beer on arrival! Derek and Margaret's home is beautifully designed and enjoys some of the most spectacular views in the area. My room was very comfortable and well equipped. I received excellent and efficient help in organising excursions during my stay, as well as recommendations for the rest of my trip. I also enjoyed a very entertaining evening with my hosts over a couple of bottles of excellent New Zealand wine.
Twin Peaks is a hidden gem and a haven of peace and tranquility. I highly recommend it!

This was the most expensive of the numerous accommodations we had pre booked for our tour of both north and south islands, so we were quite intrigued to judge Twin Peaks. Well our one night stay was most enjoyable. Derek and Marg have a very relaxed and warm manner and we were encouraged to make ourselves "at home" Their home is light and airy, well designed including plenty of glass to appreciate the fantastic location and views. Make sure you keep eyes open for the smallish signage from the main busy Frankton road ( we had a few trips up and down before spotting the access road) Our ensuite bedroom was located off the main hallway with superb ceiling features and glass doors to small outside sitting area. Tea/ coffee making facilities but no mini fridge to store milk or keep own drinks cold ( we forgot to request milk for a night time cuppa) Breakfast was delicious although noticed we weren't asked how we liked our eggs prepared. This observation may sound a little petty but meant to be taken as constructive viewpoint ( Derek did ask for feedback) Plenty of great advice for entertainment and sight seeing and a quick drive to the shopping and lakeside areas. Great friendly hosts who had a very relaxed welcoming manner and would highly recommend a stay in their "wow" home. Many thanks.

Room Tip: Only two B&B rooms so ensure early booking to avoid disappointment.

We are so delighted to had chance to stay in stunning locaton of Twin Peaks, not mention about fantastic location, beautiful view from each place of the house. Marg and Derek are such excellent hosts who knows how to ensure our comfortable stay every little details from the breakfast to the bed sheets, we regret that we couldn't stay more than 3 nights with this lovely couple and we are sure we will come back.

We loved our stay at Twin Peaks, stunning location looking down onto the lake and the mountains beyond. Marg and Derek were excellent hosts and managed to keep the humour even whilst England won at cricket (we left before NZ murdered us in the next game!). Excellent breakfast and beautiful rooms, one of the very best places we stayed. This is very much more that a B&B as we know them in UK and I would recommend them over any hotel - Marg and Derek will do everything to help you have a memorable stay and it is a very personal experience to share their home.

We spent 3 nights at Twin Peaks and were completely blown away not only by the stunning views across the lake but also by the sheer comfort of the accommodation. Margaret and Derek are the most delightful hosts and cannot do enough to make your stay absolutely enjoyable. Our only sadness was that we could not stay longer. Karen S. UK.

Room Tip: Both rooms are gorgeous - we would have been happy to stay in either.
