River View was the perfect place to undwide. A luxurious B&B set amoungst a beautiful backdrop. River View was the highlight of our trip to New Zealand. Pam knew exactly what kind of stay were looking for and did everything she could to ensure that is what we received. Pam's local knowledge and uncanny knack of knowing what to suggest for people to do during their stay was invaluble. Pam suggested we did the River Cruise in Queenstown on the TS Earnslaw and it was exactly what we were looking for. With all of the help we received at travel agencies, Pam gave us the best suggestions and we didn't have to go anywhere!

The room and bed was incredible, total luxury, with the service and view at River View I would never stay anywhere else in Wanaka.

I can't wait to go back!

My wife and I stayed here two years ago and this time we were joined by good friends from Australia. The home is modern and well laid out on a brilliant site with fabulous panoramic views of the Clutha River valley and the surrounding mountains. Exceptionally good value for money. But what really puts the icing on the cake of this B & B is the elegant yet hometown and friendly hospitality of hosts Pam and Peter. Highly recommended.

Pam & Pete have something truly special with Riverview Terrace. It was the finest B&B we stayed in during our 2-weeks of travel in the South Island and I can recommend it without hesitation.

The house is beautifully designed and our room was spacious and extremely comfortable. Amenities were what you would expect from a 5-star hotel ... fluffy towels and robes, heated towel rack, wireless internet, a bed that envelops you and chocolates by the bedside at night. The service they provide is also absolutely top-notch. They not only made restaurant reservations for us, but Pete kindly gave us a ride to and from town so that we could enjoy a bottle of wine without having to drive ourselves.

Before dinner, we joined our hosts and their other guests for what Pam called "nibbles". Pam's "nibbles", however, included fine local wine, smoked salmon, strawberries with Gorgonzola and aioli-filled salami rolls. It was a fine meal in itself!

We returned home from dinner as some light rain began to fall. Pam recommended that we make use of their hot tub, which sounded great to me after our day hike in the nearby Rob Roy Glacier Valley. We slipped into the fluffy robes and made our way outside. The hot tub was simply amazing and a perfect way to end our brief stay in Wanaka.

Thanks go to Pam & Pete for their warm hospitality. We will return to Wanaka again and stay at Riverview Terrace!

We went down to Wanaka to the Rippon festival and, on a whim, decided to treat ourselves on a luxurious BnB. (After all, one of us was trying to impress...).

We recieved a truly personal welcome by Pam and Pete. A BBQ dinner with that 'catching up with old friends' kind of feel. A spa under the stars - that got a 10/10 for romance! And then a lie-in with the curtains open looking out onto that incredible view. We really 'got' why this place is 5 star. Pam and Pete even drove us to Rippon and back at midnight - that's just amazing!

So Wow! - what can we say- stunning, beautiful, inviting, gorgeous, breathtaking, elegant, filled with true kindness are only scraping the surface. We enjoyed our stay immensely - two nights were not enough! Everything was perfect and we felt right at home.

Thank you Pam and Pete for such a wondeful weekend. We recommend this place to everyone. We'll be back!

We stayed two nights in Riverview Terrace. Pam and Peter are very warm-hearted hosts who make your stay perfect in an unforgettable, perfect way. We shared good wine and stories and bring back home lots of good memories. I wish we could have stayed longer.
