“Very Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

We stayed at the B&B for one night. Unfortunately, we booked a room with an ensuite bathroom and got a room with a private bathroom that was not connected to our room. We had to use a public hallway visible from the breakfast table. This was a little uncomfortable and inconvenient.
Otherwise, the stay was nice. The room was clean and modern. The bathroom was big, with both tub and shower. The house was very quiet and easy walking distance to central Wanaka. Parking was easy and the wifi was free.
The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Breakfast was great!

Caroline and Suzie are very kind and perfectly prepared hosts who can even give you a copy of all of Wanaka's restaurant menus. We felt very welcome and enjoyed our stay a lot. Try Caroline's blueberry pancakes, they are awesome!
The room was a bit small for our two huge suitcases to open but that was a minor thing.

We stayed at the Criffel Peak apartment for 1 week in September. We took our 1 year old daughter with us.
The apartment was great! It was clean, nicely furnished, and had a well equipped kitchen. The views of Wanaka and the hills were always captivating (from inside or from the spacious balcony).
It is located within walking distance of the town centre and even closer to the local bakery for nice morning rolls and coffee.
The apartment offered everything it needed for a relaxing holiday with family. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. She even organised a high chair and baby cot for our little one.
A welcome folder with information on Wanaka was very helpful, with suggestions for places to eat or take out.
Free wifi was also very handy.
We would stay here again next time!

I was supposed to stay in Wanaka for one night. And stayed for five! The stunning natural beauty was clearly a factor, but so was the warmth and hospitality of Caroline and Suzie. After a friendly welcome they made sure I was comfortable throughout the stay and were on the ready to help with all local recommendations - walks, cafes, etc. My room was super comfortable and spotless and they are just a shot walk from the center of town with its lively cafes and restaurants. This is an excellent option in Wanaka. I want to go back!

We had a very enjoyable two night stay in this two bedroom apartment. The layout was great for a family and had all the amenities you would need. We could walk into the town centre very easily and it was nice to not have to always jump in a car. The apartment has two bedrooms and one bathroom (two toilets). A full laundry was also available which was very helpful. Great information in the apartment about area activities. I would definitely come back

We stayed at Criffel Peak B & B for one night and had an enthusiastic warm welcome from Suzie and Caroline. They are very knowledgeable about the area and helpfully recommended and booked Relishes Café for our evening meal. The b & b is in a quiet road, about 15 minutes easy walk from Wanaka town. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. However the large bathroom was not en suite which was a shame. We had a good breakfast of fruit followed by freshly made delicious. pancakes.

Having grown up in the Yarra Valley (Healesville) of Melbourne Australia a major international tourism hub, I've certainly experienced my fair share of being both a worker and a customer of many fine B&B's, hotels, restaurants and cafes.

The hosts here are so amazingly helpful, welcoming and genuine down to earth people. Always willing to have a chat, offering assistance where they can. I woke up to scrumptious laid back breakfasts full of laughs.

Facilities are all top notch, modern, clean, tidy. The location is so close to the town center, a short scenic walk.

All the activities I was recommend were fantastic. Canyoning was such joy, and Rob Roy Galcier was so majestic, and sky diving... yeah that was intense but a lot of fun too!

I've truly fallen in love with Wanaka and a big part of that is because of the hosts at Criffel Peak.

Thank you so much for such a memorable experience, I'll most definitely be coming back again!
