Riversong Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #22 of 53 Wanaka B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 22, 2008

We loved our two night stay at Riversong. Everything about it is perfect - the room, the view, the hosts and the amenities. We stayed in the downstairs room wich had a wonderful river view and a nice little porch which was perfect for reading and sipping wine. The bathroom was wonderful with heated tile floor and a great shower. Ann and Ian were helpful in providing information about the area and walks, restaurants and things to do. We had a delicious breakfast and an enjoyable walk along the Clutha river which runs in front of the house. Wanaka was one of our favorite stops on the South Island - we will definitely stay at Riversong next time we are there.

My partner and I stopped for a night's stay at Riversong B&B and it turned out to be the most lovely b&b.

We were greeted warmly by the lady host, Ann, who then showed us to our lovely downstairs room (with ensuite). The door opened to a nice cosy terrace where you could sit and chill, while taking in the Clutha river views.

The room was clean and bright, with a large window panel that looked out to the same river views as the terrace. There was also a little corner, where teas, cups, wine glasses, plates etc were placed for our convenience. Beds were comfortable with nice and soft duvet and lining. It also has free wireless internet connection

At night, the terrace was the perfect place for us to look out to the night sky filled with stars. There was hardly any light pollution in this little town, and not one star was missing from the sky!

In the morning, Ann and her husband, Ian, made us light BUT terrific muffins, eggs, toasts and bacon.

Before we left, the lovely hosts gave us a parting gift each. And that was a first, hosts giving guests gifts! Very very sweet gesture.

One thing though, this b&b is situated in Albert Town, which is a 4 min drive into Wanaka Town. But if you're driving, this is not a problem at all. Afterall, this more than perfect b&b will make up for the distance.

If we return, we will definitely come back here.
