I cannot recommend this strongly enough. The hosts Chris and Lesley could not be more delightful nor helpful in every way. They welcomed me as if I was family. The rooms are beautiful and have every imaginable luxury and comfort. There is nothing whatever missing. The breakfast is out of this world and kept me going all day. Fresh, delicious,...

We stayed two nights at Larch Hill B&B. It is located approx 4kms from town. We hired a car, so this was not a problem. Taxi's cost approx $20NZD to get to town. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfasts were amazing. Lesley and Chris just need to know the night before what time you need breakfast and it...

Thank you for your lovely comments, Maxine. It was a pleasure to offer you the free upgrade to our king room with ensuite, as we were not very busy when you stayed with us. Many guests are surprised that we actually have 4 guest rooms (all with great lake views and with their own bathrooms – 2 with ensuite and...

Many thanks for your kind comments about us and our breakfasts, and for taking the time to upload such a comprehensive review for TripAdvisor readers (via mobile, according to the review - all the more impressive! ) Our Twin Studio provides a more spacious and comfortable option for those wanting twin beds, and costs not much more than our small...

Everything was the highest quality from the breakfast to coffee to tea to the beds and electric blankets and the cleanliness. We had a wonderful time. Chris & Lesley made our stay a memorable one. The mountainside views of Lake Wakitapu and the mountains are spectacular. We stayed four days and because it snowed we were able to spend an...

I keep coming back not just because of the magnificent scenery and incredible things to do but mostly because of the great hospitality shown by Chris & Lesley. You can't help but feel, this is "home away from home" I absolutely loved breakfast with freshly baked bread every morning, pastries, eggs, a good hot cuppa of tea or coffee. A...

Many thanks to Lesley and Chris for making my stay in Queenstown so enjoyable. I did not have a booking but just showed up one evening at this B & B that is sightly away from the town center in a residential area. They were were kind to accommodate me in what was a fully serviced studio apartment with laundry,...

I have been visiting Queenstown every year for the past 8 years and I always stay at Larch Hill Bed and Breakfast. The view from every room including the deck and the lounge is without a a doubt, a million dollar view. The hosts, Lesley and Chris Marlow, provide a phenominal cooked breakfast, extremely clean and comfortable rooms, a helping...

We booked the apartment/suite which was comprehensively equipped, spacious, clean and very comfortable, with views of Lake Wakatipu and the mountains behind.

This B&B was a welcome relief after a long drive from Christchurch. We stayed 2 nights and didn't have time to enjoy most of what Queenstown had to offer because we took the bus tour and cruise to Milford Sound...which takes up 12 hours of the day and had to leave the next day.

Larch Hill B & B is a great place to stay in Queenstown. Perfectly located, with lovely views of Lake Wakatipu and the mountains. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts superb.
