My partner and I stayed in the queen with ensuite for 3 nights in August.
The room was immaculate and had a wall unit heater in the bedroom and underfloor heating in the bathroom so it was very warm and cosy. The B&B itself had the perfect location. It was a very short walk or drive to the lakefront, restaurants, and popular activities like the Mount Iron walk and Puzzling World. And on a busy ski weekend in Wanaka, it was as quiet as could be. The home has a washer and dryer that guests are welcome to use (the only free laundry I did in NZ), and also a covered parking space and a guest refrigerator.
But what really makes Montrose the best were the hosts, Barbara and Phil, and their lovely dog, Mika. I truly felt at home in their house and looked forward to our conversations over the lovely breakfasts that Barbara cooked--scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, tomatoes, toast, fruit, yogurt, hash browns, coffee and juice. (She also gave us a choice of other breakfasts). Phil and Barbara had lots of valuable insight into NZ and Wanaka and were exceptionally friendly and nice. They helped us figure out where to rent skis and buy lift tickets, recommended fun activities, and even helped me book a delicious dinner for us one night.
We will certainly be back and we will definitely recommend Montrose to everyone we know.
