Queenstown Country Lodge gets above and beyond an "Excellent" Tripdadvisor rating! The property owners, Amanda & John, treat you as if you are their friends, staying with them on your vacation. There are 3 rooms available at this lodge: 2 looking out the back with a view of the garden, the sheep pasture (my personal favorite) and the mountains. The front room also has a lovely view. The choices and quality of foods offered at breakfast were unbelievable and lovingly prepared by Amanda who also made a dinner for us. It was the best meal of our trip and one of the most delicious we have ever eaten; in presentation, ingredient selection (fresh!), and taste. Everything is immaculate and luxurious, both in the commons areas, and in the guest rooms. The mattresses and pillows are a little bit of heaven, as is waking up with a view of New Zealand each morning through the large picture windows. Staying at Queenstown Country Lodge for 3 nights was a wonderful way to start our NZ trip and it was very difficult to leave. I hope we'll be back some day to experience the amazing and genuine hospitality of Amanda and John.

Room Tip: We really loved the Kauwara Room.

Hi Folks,
Thanks so much for your feedback and also to all the others who have taken the time to post such wonderful comments. One of the real attractions of having a Lodge that focusses on hosting is that we get to meet and know so many special people.
We really appreciate your comments and we are so glad that we have helped make your stay in the Queenstown area so special.
We now have a Facebook page up and running with news and photos of what is happening around the Lodge so go into our website and click on Facebook.
Amanda loved your feedback on the meals and of course she is the one that has that eye for detail....I just get given the list of "things to do."
Thanks once again for your very special comments.
Take care
John

We had two glorious days at the Queenstown Country Lodge! Wish we could have stayed a week! John and Amanda greeted us as we arrived and they felt like close friends when we departed two days later! The rooms are amazing (3 - 4 rooms upstairs). Large with a sitting area, a beautiful bathroom, a huge closet and free Internet that actually worked! Our first night Amanda walked us through the wheat fields, across a barbed wire fence, and pointed us up into the fields so that we could take our hike with the sheep and cows underfoot! Amazingly beautiful back yard they have! Breakfast was delightful and the dinner she cooked our last night in NZ was the best meal we had in 3 weeks time! Incredible NZ rack of lamb served with fresh veggies from their garden! John did wine tastings both nights accompanied by delicious canapés made fresh by Amanda. He also showed us the night sky with a lazer light to illuminate the stars and constellations. We'd go back to Queenstown just to stay with John and Amanda!

I can't begin describe how wonderful we found this lodge. This is by far the most personalized service we have ever received. Every want and need was anticipated. Express an interest in Rugby or Cricket and John is happy to give a personalized lesson. Amanda's cooking is amazing, by far the best meal we had in New Zealand! Staying on a small county "farm" so close to all the activities in Quennstown was a dream come true...thank you a million and one times for an incredible experience!

Room Tip: All rooms are top of the line! We loved looking out on the paddock and the sheep.

We stayed at the Queenstown Country Lodge for three days in December 2012. Amanda & John (Hosts) were incredible as they ensured that they looked after us each day. From great food, to transporting us to different local destinations and especially for the local recommendations for restaurants and wineries. Nothing to them was too much trouble

An added bonus is the quiet location surrounded by baby lambs and beautiful peonies roses. Amanda uses beautiful local fresh produce in all her cooking.

Those three days were the best ever in a B&B that we have ever had. Recommendation: there is not a number you could give other than 10/10.

Marie & Chris

Room Tip: All rooms have views surrounded by mountains, baby lambs and beautiful gardens.

Beautiful surroundings, wonderful rooms and exceptionally good food but by far the best part of the stay were John and Amanda - hosts "par excellence!"Nothing was too much trouble for them to arrange - picnics/activity bookings and even an impromptu trip for the boys to the cricket nets! Our 3 night stay here was one of our best experiences in the South Island by quite a distance and we were rather sad to leave. We are indeed sure that you will be made to feel as special as we were - thank you John and Amanda x

Room Tip: All rooms/bathrooms are tastefully and beautifully appointed
