We stayed here 2 nights, it was the best B&B we have ever been. The very warm hospitality, having glass of wine with canapes before dinner with Nicky and James was great. Nicky's breakfasts were superb. We enjoyed very much, to soak at night in the hot tub in the garden gazing in the beautiful skies and stars.

We stayed here for 3 nights. What an amazing stay. They are located in a neighborhood 3 miles from the town of Wanaka. At first we didn't think we were in the right spot because it is a beautiful home in a subdivision. But there is a low key wooden sign on the front lawn. The driveway is spacious. The...

beautiful room, beautiful view, near attractions. 5 minutes from Mt. Iron hike, 10 from Wanaka town, and 15 from Rippon winery. You must try James' Black Peak 2015 pinot noir on the back patio overlooking the river and hills, while enjoying former chef Nicky's canapes. The breakfast was also fantastic. Heads up, as you drive up, as you will see,...

You feel like you are driving into suburbia when you are driving up to the place but once you are inside thoughts of suburbia are behind you and a fabulous view is in front of you. This is an upmarket boutique B&B and the owners Nicky & James are great hosts. Nicky does a mean breakfast and James provides the...

Our room was spacious, very well appointed and with patio doors leading to a private seating area in the garden with table,chairs and beanbags. The ensuite bathroom was also well appointed. The garden afforded...

James welcomed us into his and Nicky's beautifully presented home and helped us in with our luggage. We were shown to our quiet room at the end of their house opening out on to dramatic scenery. After making ourselves comfortable and going for a walk, we joined them and other guests for drinkies and nibbles. We took James's recommendation to...

Nicki and James are delightful couple. Their B&B is clean and comfortable; with superb views of not-to-far-away mountains. Breakfast is too order, well-prepared and delicious. Also, nice wine in the evening; James is a vintner; Black Peak is his label - an extremely pleasant, tasteful Pinot Noir. Rooms are large and comfortable. We were there for two nights - a...

We booked here having stayed two years ago and found that Nicky and James had taken over. They have brought their own areas of expertise to bear and are providing a very good service. We particularly enjoyed Nicky's breakfasts, especially the smashed avocado and poached egg! Thanks P & T
