Look no further: this is where to stay if you're visiting (or getting married) in Wanaka.
My husband and I, along with two friends, stayed at Riverview Terrace when we recently eloped.
From our very first email exchange, Pam and Peter were incredibly hospitable. As described by many reviewers before me, they really went above and beyond to make our stay with them enjoyable and memorable.
We had all 3 rooms, which are each as lovely and cozy as they look in the photos. The views, the hot tub and the food were all fantastic.
But its really all of Pam and Peter's little touches that made us feel special - I'm hesitant to list them here because you should just go and experience them yourself. But I will mention two (of the many) things that made our stay so memorable:
1. Pam welcomed us into her home like we were her own personal guests. She served dinner on her family china with napkin rings that were carved by her grandfather. Staying in her house was like staying with a favourite aunt I wish I had. She even emailed me her yummy recipes after our stay.
2. While Peter chauffered us around for our heli-wedding, he made a video of our helicopter take off and landing. Our parents, who couldn't be there for the wedding, have shown the video to everyone they know.
These two have truly found their calling in running a bed and breakfast. If we could change one thing, it would have been to stay longer.
