“Warm and Inviting B&B”
Reviewed December 8, 2009

Ann and Ian are great hosts. They make you feel welcome in their lovely B&B by the river. Our room on the first floor was comfortable and we went to sleep with the sounds of the river rejuvenating us. Breakfasts are well prepared and with our four days stay were always interesting. Ian guided me on a fishing trip and did an excellent job and my wife got a ride to a massage appointment while I fished. Highly recommend Riversong

My wife and I have visited many parts of the world and stayed in all sorts of accommodation. Ann and Ian, and Riversong itself, are the most charming we have encountered. This was our 6th stay following our move to NZ from the UK in 2006. The 'Riversong' experience is partly responsible for our move to NZ and the warmth and sincerity of the people here is reflective of the best of NZ itself. The rooms are charming, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. The welcome is genuine and very friendly. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when visiting Wanaka. Great people, great place, great breakfast and great value.

Located on the river, lovely gardens. Rooms were nicely appointed with comfortable beds, however, the room downstairs was on the small side, the upper room was roomier, nice hosts

My partner and I stayed here for a night on our way to Queenstown and absolutely loved the hosts. They are just so sweet and helpful, from giving us maps, tips of where to eat, the best way to Queenstown, the amazing breakfast, and the packed muffins for our trip on. Just amazing.
The room was comfy and was welcomingly warm given how cold it was at that time of year.

Would love to stay at Riversong again in the future

Riversong is truly a lovely stay - comfortable, clean, friendly hosts, unbeatable view, scrumptious breakfasts, I could go on an on. We stayed 2 nights, and just loved the place. It's about a 5-minute drive to Wanaka, and the Clutha River is right across the drive! We relaxed on the deck, watching the sunset, drinking wine, and Ian gave us flyfishing lessons! Truly a wonderful stay and charming place. A must-stay!

The view from our room was exquisite, and it's a wonderfully quiet location. We hadn't come for the fishing but wanted somewhere with a beautiful outlook that we could stroll along. The Clutha runs almost outside and with the trees lining it and the mountains behind was beautiful to look at whatever time of day. As we weren't fishing we had more to do with Anne than Ian, who was out guiding mostly. Anne was a wonderful combination of kindness and empathy, intelligent opinions, and practical knowledge. She took us up to the mouth of the Clutha so we could have a walk that wasn't too tiring, and gave good advice about what to see in town and around. The breakfasts set you up for the whole day. While smallish what we loved about our downstairs room was being able to open the side door and sit on the deck. We had a look at upstairs, which is bigger with its own balcony to see if next time we'd want to stay up there. But it's a hard choice as both rooms have wonderful features.
Wanaka is a great location to stay if you want to have day trips to the West Coast and Glaciers, and the wineries of Central Otago. We'd go back.

I can't add much more to what has already been said in the other reviews. This was such a peaceful, relaxing location. We had the upstairs room and bath with views of the Clutha River. Every afternoon I took a wonderful nap with the sounds of the river floating over me. The hosts were so warm and friendly...we felt as if we knew them for years.
The breakfasts every morning were delicious...fresh fruits, yogurts,breads, jams and cooked eggs, meats....always something different.
My partner fished every day with Ian and really enjoyed his guidance and friendly conversation. He and his wife Ann are wonderful hosts. We also loved Ann's pretty garden. We hated to leave after our 6 night stay.
