“Brilliant place to stay”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

We turned up at Criffel Peak View having booked it only that morning. Caroline and Suzie could not have been more welcoming and showed us to a lovely room with a huge bathroom. Everything was perfect. Caroline made us a cup of tea with homemade cookies on our arrival. Both Caroline and Suzie were brilliant at recommending things to do and places to eat. They booked a flight for us to Milford Sound and Suzie even got me an appointment with the dentist after I broke a tooth! We only intended to stay one night and ended up staying three. Wish it could have been longer.

Staying in Wanaka was one of the highlights of my trip to New Zealand. I was in Wanaka on three separate occasions. Criffel Peak View had the best service of any of the hotels or B&Bs I stayed in. Caroline and Suzie were amazingly thougthful in helping us plan our activities - one day they went so far as to drive us 30 minutes out of town to the head of a mountain bike trail.

There are numerous other examples that I won't list, but just read the rest of the reviews.

If you care about service and want to stay near down town Wanaka in a clean, comfortable B&Bm stay here.

Caroline and Suzie made us incredibly welcome, with fresh baked cookies and lots of advice on whre to go and what to do. We felt immediately at home. After one night they moved us into the 2 bed apartment, which was simply amazing - loads of space, great views and beautifully peaceful. Wanaka is a lovely town, with lots of great walking or space just to chill out - we did both!

We enjoyed a fantastic four night stay in the apartment. Caroline and Suzie were fantastic hosts and had some great tips on what walks to do, bike rides etc. The apartment is well maintained and clean and the view from the deck is just spectacular. I could have sat there for hours looking at it, especially when we woke up one morning to find snow on the mountains! Great location too, Wanka is a fantastic place to stay, much more relaxed than Queenstown and the day walks and bike rides you can do in the area are really fantastic. We can't wait to go back for a longer stay next time.

I highly recommend Criffel Peak as a place to stay in Wanaka. It is clear that the owners, Caroline ad Suzie, have a heartfelt interest in contributing to the holiday experience of their guests. I would absolutely return to Criffel Peak next time I am in Wanaka.

Hosts are energetic and enthusiastic and the breakfast was very good! If staying in the B and B as we did, ask to be in room away from the kitchen and laundry or you will be kept awake by other guests doing late night laundry and woken up by Breakfast noises in the morning. Other than that it was good value for money and a ten minute walk to town.

Room Tip: Not the one near the kitchen and laundry

We had a very warm welcome from Caroline and Suzie, and to our surprise we were upgraded to the beautiful apartment with its gorgeous views over Wanaka. The is so much space here, with two bedrooms, a large open-plan lounge and kitchen, a double garage, and a wonderful sun-deck - and everything was in beautiful order. A very well equipped apartment meant we wanted for nothing. We slept really well - very large and comfortable bed bed and complete peace and quiet. We left the blinds open to watch the sun rising over the mountains - very romantic. (You are overlooked by the occasional high-flying bird!) Breakfast was really tasty, and gave us the chance to chat with our hosts and find out more about the town and the area.

Very highly recommended!
