We had very limited time in Queenstown, but our one-night stay at Pencarrow was outstanding. A beautiful location with warm hosts, Bill and Kari. The breakfast they prepared was not only a uniquely gorgeous presentation, it was delicious. Traveling with another couple we both felt that Bill and Kari provided us with information that enabled us to get the most...

Queenstown was our last stop on the South Island which is why we decided to treat ourselves to a really luxury hotel and Pencarrow turned out to be an excellent choice! Yes it was very expensive but you do get what you paid for! This charming little Bed and Breakfast stands on a hill overlooking Lake Wakatipu which means all...

I write this after 11 years because I'm not sure you could provide reviews back then but I just started and had to go back and give a plug for Pencarrow. In 2002 (I had to put a date below so I used November, which is when we went) we stayed here on our Honeymoon. The place was so fantastic....

For our 25th wedding anniversary I wanted to take my wife somewhere special as a surprise.

“There are two suites on the first floor and two suites on the second floor; I was in the lower left one-bedroom suite... I loved it as I had doors onto the lower terrace... a special place. There is a wonderfully-placed hot tub; no pool or fitness center (I could not remove the rating for those above; sorry). But, in Queenstown there is no need for either since you are always moving!”
