We spent one night at Ribbonwood en route to Wanaka. The B&B is in a beautiful setting with views towards the glacier. Jonathan was very hospitable and slices of Julie's fruit cake on arrival was a nice touch. As we were the only guests we were offered the cottage behind the main house. This was a good choice. It has all facilities and plenty of space. Jonathan was very helpful re local attractions and restaurants. We followed his recommendation for dinner and were not disappointed. Breakfast was brilliant. Home-baked bread with a full, cooked plate of eggs, bacon and vegetables. However,we have to question the tariff of $240 p/night. In our recent experience this is on the high side. Ribbonwood is as good as other B&Bs and not as isolated as some we have stayed at.
