Thank you Ann and Blyth so much for the beautiful stay, at your cozy home.
We really feel so relax and warmth.
I’ve shared with my frenz about the wonderful stay at your nice home.
Sure I’ll hope, I can come back again with more frenz to stay.
I miss your cat too~

The beds we snuggle in every night, are so soft and cozy.
And we never had so much variety of breakfast assortments every morning.
Thank you and Blyth, for taking care of us and our bellies.

Room Tip: Tip: Please book early! Hee hee~

This place was totally awesome - over and above what we ever expected. Stunning views and fabulously designed accommodation. Ann and Blyth were the perfect hosts and made us feel so welcome and at home. We could not have chosen a better B&B in NZ and I can see why this place is voted No.1 in Cardrona out of 52 other B&Bs in the town. We hope to go back again one day, as it is without a doubt the best B&B we have ever stayed in! THANK YOU Ann and Blyth - Becky and Matt

Hi Becky & Matt, Thank you so much for your kind comments and we enjoyed your company very much as well. You might be interested to know we were awarded a 'People's Choice Award' from Trip Advisor yesterday, so that is great. We look forward to your return - for some skiing perhaps next time? Hope the shift goes well. Kind regards, Ann & Blyth

We had booked this trip for our delayed honeymoon and we are so glad we did. It was worth the wait! Ann & Blythe has been nothing but lovely hosts who took care of our every needs. It's like having family around who are willing to help in anyway they can.

Ann has shown her artistic side in designing and decorating the homestead. It is cosy, beautifully decorated, filled with lots of warmth and lots of space to stretch and relax after a day of activities.

Some people say there isn't much to do there in term of activities, but we were spoilt for choice. There's so much to do and so little time. In fact, Ann has great connections and has impressed us with how fast she is able to book both my husband and i on an activity.

We have recommended Waiorau Homestead to our closest friends and we would do the same for everyone else. Don't spend the time pondering, just hop on that plane and enjoy the stay. We will definitely return in the near future :)

Ann & Blythe are amazing hosts, take care of the visitors so well and ready to help with everything. Just that you'll have the perfect stay. The place itself is so beautifully decorated with such a good taste. Ann & Blythe think about all the little details.
Breakfast was very rich, everything served so beautifully. I was there on Xmas Eve, dinner was great, atmosphere was super, I was lucky to eat the best Pavlova ever, made by Blythe, which is also a chef.
Thank you so much for the warmest hospitality, you are number one!

Waiorau Homestead is simply wonderful! Ann and Blythe Are are warm, friendly and excellent hosts and make you feel like part of the family in their beautiful B&B. Perfectly located between Queenstown and Wanka, the daily room service, dedicated guest living room and extensive DVD collection, wine and fresh flowers, tea and coffee supplies throughout the day, comfy bed, and beautiful grounds make this the ultimate getaway. Blythe is a wonderful chef too! We were the only guests staying at the time and had the house to ourselves which was lovely. We were so disappointed to leave on our least day and will definitely recommend this Wanka gem to our friends and family. Thanks for everything! 10/10
