This place was everything I hoped for and so much more. Nestled on the side of a hill, the view from the living room and the lake room is absolutely stunning. We spent two nights here. The owner is very nice and provides a wonderful breakfast that includes some homemade toasted muesli that I loved, as well as cereal, croissants,...

Thank you so much for writing a review, it's a shame I do not have more than one lake bedroom with the view - you do get it though from the sitting room, the breakfast area and the balcony!! Kind regards, Sue

This B&B has a stunning view overlooking the city of Queenstown, the harbor, and the mountains. Sue, your hostess serves a proper British breakfast and is a wealth of knowledge about the attractions, restaurants and walks in the area. We took a bus tour of Milford sound which picked us up just down the hill from the B&B. Overall, a...

It was a wonderful stay in B and B on the Hill. Sue, the owner of the house, rents out two rooms. She made us feel really welcome, so we had a really good time there. The rooms are of very high quality. One of them offers a beautiful view over the lake, but in any way you can use...

A most enjoyable time can be spent at this B and B. It is extremely comfortable with excellent views of Queenstown etc. We had the room with a view of the lake and mountains which was a treat. You are made most welcome, the comfortable lounge is relaxing and the breakfast provided is top class. It is close enough to...

Firstly thank you to Sue for going above and beyond as a host. I was traveling solo and broke my wrist mid holiday. Sue drove me to take my equipment back and offered to take me or help out with anything I required. The accommodation was superb, better than a 5 star hotel, it was very clean, quiet and the...

We spent 3 nights in the Earnslaw room, the smaller of the two rooms available and the one without a lake view. It was the cheaper option, but we decided to take it as the guests’ very comfortable sitting room has superb views of the lake and has its own terrace with seating. As we only slept in our room,...

Ann welcomed us into her home with tea and biscuits after our long drive. The view from the lounge is breathtaking and it's hard to pull yourself away from looking at it. Ann is full of local knowledge and only too happy to make suggestions on where to go" it's well placed far enough away from buzz of the town...

As we were in Queenstown for a few days we wanted accommodation that was close to the centre of town 2-3 mins drive or about 15-20 mins via lakeside walk or streets, had views, was self contained including full kitchen, laundry and separate living space, this ticked all these boxes. Only negative was that wifi was very weak. Sue the...
