“Tremendous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2009

My husband and I both really enjoyed our stay here. It was so comfortable yet very luxurious and accomodating. We almost felt as if we were staying with friends! Ann and Blyth are so hospitable. The restaurant where we originally planned to have dinner was closed for a private party, so Blyth prepared a wonderful dinner for us with the best regional fare and wines! There was so much to see nearby as well. Wanaka is beautiful! We have travelled all over the world, and this definitely was one of the best places we have ever stayed. --Tim and Kelli, USA

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2009

Waiorau Homestead is a stylish and modern B&B. The interior design and finishes are both luxurious and homely.

Ann and Blyth are incredibly hospitable, making you feel at home as soon as you arrive. The drinks and nibbles provided are very generous, making you want to sit back and enjoy the view and the roaring fire for the rest of your stay.

The little touches are what makes this place really special. The bed being turned back for you at night, mini milk bottles on the table at breakfast and the fragrant soaps in the bathroom.

A trip to the local Cardona pub for dinner is a must, as it is one of the oldest in NZ.

Wonderful stay. Already planning to return!
