Criffel Peak View B&B and Apartment

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We arrived on a wet cold evening and Caroline and Suzie welcomed us with hot tea and muffins. That set the tone for our whole stay - our hosts were caring and generous. Caroline called a few restaurants to find us a place to eat dinner and made great recommendations for hikes for the next day. We stayed two nights. At the breakfast table we met and talked with other guests, in the evening we enjoyed the fireplace in the living room.The location is great - a few minutes walk to the main street where the restaurants are. We had the room with the hall bath - the room was a good size and the bathroom was huge with a tub and a large shower.
Caroline and Suzie are charming!

We could not have had a warmer welcome than we got from Suzie and Caroline. The whole stay was exceptional, from their recommendations for restaurants to their wonderful breakfasts. They have created such a sociable place, where everyone feels like family for their short stay, a real feat. Wanaka is a place no-one should miss, and it would be all the more special if you stay here.

We were referred by another B&B owner to Caroline and Suzie when we arrived ahead of schedule in Wanaka and found everything booked up. How lucky we were!

They are incredible hosts, just bubbling over with enthusiasm and very knowledgeable - whatever you want to know they will immediately either have the answer or turn over every stone to find it out for you! Thanks to them we knew exactly what we wanted to do in Wanaka.

The main B&B and apartment were full but they rent out the adjacent property - a very luxurious 3 bedroom detached house - on behalf of the owner. We had this to ourselves, and it was so good that we immediately cancelled our other accommodation for the following night to extend our stay at Criffel Peak.

Although we were last minute arrivals, we were still treated to homebaked muffins fresh from the oven. We also took breakfast in the main B&B where you eat at a communal table with other guests and the hosts, and the conversation flows just as well as the excellent coffee.

Our stay at Criffel Peak was one of the most memorable times of our 6 week holiday and we would certainly return if we visit NZ again.

We stayed one night at Criffel Peak, we wished it could have been longer. This is a five star establishment that is run by two super ladies, Suzie and Caroline. We were lucky in that we were upgraded to a very large apartment, so spacious you wouldn't even find the cat if you wished to swing it: which we didn't. The reception was friendly, informative and helpful; breakfast was tasty and substantial and enhanced by the kitchen table discussions with other guests who came from different parts of the world. The property is situated a short walk form the centre of Wanaker. This town is like a small Queenstown. It has a beautiful lake, first class restaurants and a dry climate. We stopped at Wanaker on our way from Te Anau to Franz Joseph glacier. It is a good place to stop as it breaks what would otherwise been a longish drive on not the easiest of roads. Don't miss it and don't miss Criffel Peak.

Room Tip: Fill up your petrol tank, petrol stations are not numerous on the way to Franz Joseph.

We arrived at Criffel Peak, were greated by Suzie and Caroline and offered a cup of tea. Whilst chatting over tea my husband happened to mention that he was having a little bit of trouble with his shoulder, which was concerning him as we were off climbing for the week. Within minutes a recommended sports massage appointment had been made, which was fantastic and really helped. Looking after people just seems effortless to Suzie and Caroline, they are so relaxed and friendly and really want you to enjoy your stay. They were also kind enough to give us a lift to our climbing guides, which was very much above and beyond and appreciated. Thank you for turning what was essentially a travel day into a really pleasant and relaxed experience for us.

Room Tip: From what I saw they're all lovely. I loved ours, which was right next to the desk and the kitch...
