We arrived in Wanaka late after a long drive from Franz Josef and turned into Tin Tub where we were due to spend 2 nights only to find we were not expected. After a few minutes we were found a room in Riverview Terrace. No idea what to expect, we were welcomed by James and Nicky with a glass of...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at this B&B. James and Nicky were nice enough to allow us to drop off our bags before our check-in time while we tour the town. Our room has the view of the mountain and access to an amazing backyard. The backyard and patio area was really breathtaking. Our bed was very...

Our room was comfortable and very modern. Super friendly hosts greeted us. Good conversation made our stay more than just a place to crash. The full and delicious breakfast cooked to order. We were treated to a bottle of the Pinot made by James! Can't wait to open it!

We stayed at Riverview Terrace for 5 nights. Sadly we missed Nicky & James who were away on their honeymoon - and were looked after by Nicky's parents. Annette and Bill were just amazing! It was like living with our friends parents. We were absolutely spoilt with lazy breakfasts, long chats over wine and tea and canapés in the evening....

First of all, the hosts, Nicky and James, are a chef and winemaker (respectively). This makes for an absolutely winning combination as evidenced in the delightful breakfast made to order every morning (including professionally made espresso) and canapés with James' Black Peak wine in the evenings (the Pinot Gris and Reisling are fabulous). Nicky and James were so helpful and...
