My partner and I stopped for a night's stay at Riversong B&B and it turned out to be the most lovely b&b.
We were greeted warmly by the lady host, Ann, who then showed us to our lovely downstairs room (with ensuite). The door opened to a nice cosy terrace where you could sit and chill, while taking in the Clutha river views.
The room was clean and bright, with a large window panel that looked out to the same river views as the terrace. There was also a little corner, where teas, cups, wine glasses, plates etc were placed for our convenience. Beds were comfortable with nice and soft duvet and lining. It also has free wireless internet connection
At night, the terrace was the perfect place for us to look out to the night sky filled with stars. There was hardly any light pollution in this little town, and not one star was missing from the sky!
In the morning, Ann and her husband, Ian, made us light BUT terrific muffins, eggs, toasts and bacon.
Before we left, the lovely hosts gave us a parting gift each. And that was a first, hosts giving guests gifts! Very very sweet gesture.
One thing though, this b&b is situated in Albert Town, which is a 4 min drive into Wanaka Town. But if you're driving, this is not a problem at all. Afterall, this more than perfect b&b will make up for the distance.
If we return, we will definitely come back here.
