Warm welcome, lovely room, internet access and good breakfast. Excellent suggestions as to what to do in the area. Plenty of sitting out area - both inside and out.

Let me first say that the owner is quite nice and very talkative. Maybe a bit too much so as we were both worried she might be drinking a bit too much caffeine with all her nervous energy. And breakfast was nice, though in a group environment typical of B&Bs. Be prepared to have a forced mingle. Location is AOK...

From the moment we arrived when Caroline came out to greet us and introduce herself, we were treated to excellent hospitality in this wonderful little town. The house is a 5 minute walk from the centre of the town and the lake. We had the smallest room on offer but it was well appointed and spotlessly clean. The hosts are...

What a memorable 2 night-stay at Criffel Peak! Caroline and Suzie are fantastic hosts. They welcomed us with cold drinks and a cake, told us all there is to know about the area, made great food and leisure recommendations, prepared a lovely breakfast with delicious pancakes and even checked out the online weather forecast a couple of times as we...

This place was recommended to us by some friends who had stayed with Suzie and Caroline in early 2010. Not usually the BnB types, we had originally booked a motel in Wanaka but we decided to cancel the motel and to land in this little haven of superb accommodation, charm and outstanding friendliness and service for the same price. Best...

Criffel Peak View B and B was a lovely surprise - even though it had been recommended to me by a friend I didn't realise how appealing it would be in every way. The owners are passionate about NZ and Wanaka and have an enormously detailed stock of knowledge about Wanaka and the local area (and the South Island in...

We stayed in this accommodation for one night, and we really liked it! Caroline welcomed us upon arrival and we sat a long moment together in the afternoon around a cup of tea, discussing the city, what to visit, dinner options, and getting to know each other a bit. The Lake Wanaka area is really nice, and knowing more now,...

At the end of the day, the B&Bs you remember are those that go the extra mile to make the stay special. Caroline and Suzie provide that extra mile in the form of their company and delicious communal breakfast. Spacious rooms, good location, free wireless, the rest is details.

Caroline and Suzie are great hosts, and we were welcomed with tea and delicious homemade cake. We also appreciated the various suggestions and recommendations on where to eat and what to do in and around Wanaka The house is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the centre of town. No hesitation in recommending.
