Riverview Terrace
Ranked #5 of 53 Wanaka B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 January 2013

we stayed and Riverview Terrace for 1 night and loved the place. It's located in Albertown (a suburb of Wanaka), but with incredible view of the mountains and Cluther river. This is a real 5 star experience with very luxurious and spacious rooms. Ours had a nice terrace with views all round. Pam was a superb host and made us feel extremely welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and she certainly knows how to cook. Breakfast was delicious and she kindly offered us other goodies which were freshly baked when we arrived. One of the best places we've ever stayed and highly recommeded.

Every single reviewer on Trip Advisor has rated this B and B as five star which must be almost unheard of. We can do no more than endorse all of the compliments showered on this place and hosts Peter and Pam. It felt like we were staying with old friends, so enjoyable was their company and so comfortable were we made to feel. Perfection is the highest accolade we can think of, but it happens to be true. Don't go to New Zealand without staying here, even if you had not planned on visiting Wanaka - do it! You will be delighted that you did!

Pam and Peter are the best hosts you could ever come across and the B&B they own is the finest I have ever experienced - it certainly rivals 5* hotels with both quality of accomodation and service. If you like the personal touch and thoughtful kind hearted hosts that see you as individuals rather than just a booking reference then this is just the place for you. From the moment we arrived Pam & Peter made us feel incredibly welcome. They shared their extensive knowledge of Wanaka and the surrounding areas, made suggestions on sights to see and activities that were available and even offered to take care of the bookings for anything we fancied doing. The breath taking views from the house are ones we won't forget and especially of Mount Maude given we enjoyed the fabulous wine from this winery every evening courtesy of Pam & Peter! The home made hors d'oeuvres were just devine with the venison being my favourite which Pam was kind enough to share her secret recipe me! Peter was awesome I couldn't believe how generous he was with his time, he offered to drive us over to friends in town in the evening so we could leave our car at the B&B and have a drink with them. Pam's breakfasts are legendary and one probably my waistline won't forget! - it was the anniversary of another couple staying there during our time and Pam made them heart shaped waffles - so incredibly thoughtful. It was our first time in New Zealand and the highlight of our trip was our stay in Wanaka, Pam & Peter made us feel at home and their generosity surpassed anything I have ever experienced. Thank you both for making our trip so memorable and I very much look forward to one day coming back! Glinder

We booked for four nights over New Year, but was so comfortable and at home we extended our stay for another two days. Pam and Peter are so friends and invite you into their home. It does not feel like a B&B as you are welcome to use the house as your own. Pam offers a fantastic breakfast as well as nibbles and a glass of wine in the evenings. The house is also excellent, it looks brand new, excellently appointed rooms , nothing to show they have been here for over five years. I can't recommend this place enough, both the hospitality or the accommodation. I would recommend this as a must of you're in Wanaka.

Our stay at Riverview Terrace over Christmas with the incredibly kind, warm, and professional Pam and Peter could not have been more enjoyable. The first thing you'll think when you walk into their home "why can't I live here too?!" - the combination of luxury and a welcoming, warm home feeling is unlike anything we have experienced elsewhere. Our room was spacious (with a divine private patio overlooking the Clutha valley), the bathroom huge and spotless, and the bed was supremely comfortable. But to focus only on features of the property would be to miss the best part about a stay at Riverview Terrace - and that is the unique brand of hospitality on offer. Pam should be crowned the grande dame of B&B hospitality - from her amazing breakfasts (including a different kind of scrumptious home-baked muffin each morning!) to her encyclopedic local knowledge to the thousand and one little touches you'll notice and enjoy while you're a guest there - she really knows what she's doing and I can't imagine anyone coming away from Riverview Terrace feeling anything but relaxed, refreshed, and resolved to return! We cannot thank Pam, Peter, and their wonderful family enough for such a wonderful Christmastime stay at their home - this is a first-rate operation, we will certainly be back, and we recommend anyone heading to the Wanaka area to STAY AT RIVERVIEW!

Simply the best B&B we have ever experienced. The accommodation is first class with spotless rooms overlooking the wonderful garden and stunning views. The fantastic breakfasts and pre dinner canapés were a special treat lovingly prepared by Pam. Spending Christmas with Pam, Peter & family was a wonderful experience. Thank you Pam & Peter for including us in such a special a time and being such great hosts.
What a wonderful stay. Will definitely be back.

Our stay at Riverview Terrace was absolutely wonderful and we wished we could have had longer there. The room was beautiful and immaculate down to every last detail - comfortable bed, very spacious, large bathroom, bathrobes and slippers etc etc. After a long day we very much appreciated the wine and hors d'oeuvres as we sat looking out on the beautiful view. Pam and Peter are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed hearing all their knowledge and experience of the area. Breakfast was amazing - it kept us going all day. The highlight for us though was sitting under the stars in the outside hot tub! We would thoroughly recommend a stop here, and look forward to one day going back! Thanks again, Pam and Peter!
