Lake Vista is almost everything you could want from a B&B in Queenstown. Our family of 5 stayed here over New Years 14/15, and we had a great time. Bev and Ian were very knowledgeable and helpful while we stayed at their B&B. Breakfast was excellent, and the rooms were quite comfortable with amazing views of The Remarkables across the...

The final stop on our trip was Queenstown and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Bev was a delightful host, the room was cozy with a stunning view, and breakfast (also looking out at the mountains and lake) was great! We were happy to stay slightly outside of the main strip, as it gave us better access to...

Happy visit here, and loved the views of the Lake. Excellent breakfast and outstandingly clean. We did have to share a bathroom across the corridor with our friends and you need to make sure to ask for a room with en-suite if this matters to you. Nice balcony to sit on. Owners helpful and gave good recommendations for jet boating...

My mother aged 93years and I stayed at Lake Vista which had stunning views and sunlight streaming in through the windows. Over and above the idyllic position was the welcome, the care and the kindness shown to us by Bev which made our stay most enjoyable. Bev even picked us up and dropped us off for our daily excursions which...

The most perfect home from home. Bev McLenaghen could not be more welcoming. Perfectly positioned, amazing view. Great breakfast cooked to order. Comfortable spacious room ,ensuite shower room with heated towel rail and floor. Bev happily kept our room whilst we did the Milfordu Track. What a welcome to New Zealand. I cannot recommend too highly.

Set on the upslope of a hilly road, the view of The Remarkables and lake is what you first notice and appreciate when arriving at Lake Vista. The cosiness and cleanliness of the house, room and bathroom soon follows. We stayed in the Kingston room which shared a balcony with two other rooms. Each room has stunning views. The dining...

We spent 16 nights across NZ (both islands) in mostly B&Bs and a few hotels. We stayed in the last room which has the ensuite. All rooms offer amazing views of the Remarkables range and the Lake below, and even Queenstown Airport in the distance. Location is pretty, but bit of a drive (10 mins) into Queenstown town center where...

Thank you for your review of Lake Vista B & B. We did enjoy having you stay with us. The drive into town takes 2 or 3 minutes, definitely not 10 minutes. If you are used to walking you can enjoy a scenic walk into town which takes 20 -25 minutes.
