This B&B is one of the best we've been to. The house is modern and the decor is relaxing and well thought out. The hosts were very welcoming and warm. We got great travel advice and enjoyed the warm hearty breakfast chats. The bedroom and bathroom were just fantastic and especially loved the shower!! Excellent restaurants nearby with a short walk.

Will definitely go back there if we are ever in Wanaka again.

Thankyou you Caroline and Susie,

What a fantastic B&B. I felt instantly welcomed with a cuppa and muffin(s). Great advice about all activities and bookings done for me. Even did my washing but not sure if i should mention that as everyone will expect it!! Home away from home..and i'll definitely stay there on my next visit (if i can get in!) Modern, spotless and lovely bed!! Great hosts...How much more can i rave?? Thankyou again.

Thank you Caroline and Susie for a great stay. We came to Wanaka for 2 days and stayed for 2 weeks. The girls were so good helping us on all our walks, loved the Rob Roy glacier. The B&B was great to walk to the cafes, lake and funky cinema Paradiso. We will be back for more blueberry pancakes!

We had an absolutely fantastic stay in Wanaka - it was definitely one of the nicest b&b's we stayed in and funnily enough the cheapest! The room was lovely and clean, the bed soo comfortable and the breakfast simply delicious. But the best about this b&b were the hosts - Suzie and Caroline are so friendly and easy to chat to that we felt like we are staying with old friends (where else you get greeted with nice cup of tea and home made cookies!!!). If you go to Wanaka stay here - it is definitely the best place to be! All the best for Cariline and Suzie- i wish all hosts were like you!

Caroline and Susie were the best hosts I've encountered. We had all the comforts of home and none of the worries. They cooked us wonderful breakfasts, had very good advice for anything we needed to do, and were so pleasant to be around, that we stayed in much more than we planned to!

Linda and Richard are my hosts during my stay at Criffel Peak. I had a few conversation with them (though they were away for a while and handed me the keys to the whole cottage during my one night stay there).
They've migrated from Britain and though their accents are strong, I had a most wonderful stay under their hospitable guidance.
The room they provided me is very clean and has a nice big window and a large cosy, snuggy bed.
Richard even offered to cook breakfast for his guests and I had the honour of having a home-cooked breakfast of scrambled eggs and fresh toasts.
Wonderful hosts and certainly a recommended place to stay.

We just returned from NZ and we felt the most at home staying at Criffel Peak B&B. Caroline and Susie are great hosts. We were there 3 nights, and morning breakfasts were made fresh. Day hiking was our primary goal in seeing the Wanaka area. The hikes they recommended were right on! Beautiful scenery, appropriate physical challenge, and easy to find places. They too enjoy the outdoors, so the advice came easy for them. We've stayed at other places, be it B&Bs or motor lodges, and many times our hosts aren't very familiar with the local, independent, outdoor activities. We like to explore on our own, and not have to rely on tour groups for the experience. The B&B was about 1 km from town, so a nice evening walk to town for dinner. They gave great recommendations for restaurants, even ones to possibly avoid. They know locals with the tour companies to help steer you in the right direction if that's what you choose. The accomodation was clean and comfortable and we stayed in an ensuite room. However, we didn't look at the other 2 rooms to know if they are ensuite, too. Fresh goodies for afternoon tea were welcoming after our day's activity. If you enjoy a local, smaller and comfortable setting with hosts who enjoy their surroundings, you don't want to miss out on this one!
