“Totally gorgeous”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

Our visit was at a bad time for Sally, with Don hospitalised, so we were extremely grateful that she honoured our pre-paid status and took us in. Rockwood is a truly lovely home - cosy, classy, well-kept, spotless and comfortable. Even in winter the gardens kept me busy with my camera, and our upper room with ensuite was very homely.
Arriving in misty rain, the view from the balcony was limited, so imagine my delight upon waking early the first morning to clear skies with the full moon just slipping away behind snow-capped mountains turning pink with the rising sun ! Fortunately my husband is not perturbed at being woken by a madwoman wielding a camera on the balcony at the crack of dawn :-)
In spite of everything Sally made sure we were welcome and well cared-for, and our stay was made even more special by learning how prominent her family has been in the development of tourism & aviation in the South island. We were offered her father's book to bring home with us and it's been a fascinating read, especially having visited some of those places so recently.
Wanaka is one of our very favourite places in NZ and Rockwood B & B a definite highlight.

We considered ourselves very fortunate to have found Don and Sally's wonderful home. We enjoyed it so much our 1night stay turned into 3nts! The lakeside setting; superbly comfortable rooms and tasty breakfasts as well as such great hosts made for the perfect stay. We were sorry to leave but Don and Sally's stories about their life on Mt Cook made us eager to go and visit there before we returned to Wales.
Thank you both again for making us so welcome.

Sally & Don are fantastic hosts. Sally is also an artist, and is more than happy to share her work. The breakfast are wonderful and they have a spacious garden setting and are located close to the Lake,
The rooms are cozy and comfortable, we stayed in the upsairs room which had a lovely balcony, with seating.
I would recommend Rockwood B&B to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday.
