Pam and Peter run a fantastic B&B that gives you a sense of visiting old friends. From the evening wine and appetizers to the fact that Peter will drop you off and pick you up from your dinner reservation, you get the sense that they are both genuinely keen that you enjoy Wanaka and your stay with them.

We spent 2 blissful nights at Pam and Peter's B&B. Everything about the stay - room, breakfast, and the hosts - was wonderful. All the positive reviews are right on the money-this is easily one of the best B&Bs we have visited (in any country) in every respect. Our only regret is that we had to leave, but we are...

A true home share experience in Pam and Peter's lovely house. The best B&B we experienced on our NZ trip from the wonderful breakfast to the extras like afternoon tea, wine and canapés, drying wet clothes and trip suggestions all accompanied with interesting conversation.

I can only agree with all the other comments made. Pam and Peter are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Truly luxurious accommodation with pre-dinner canapés/wine and personalised taxi service into Wanaka for dinner and pick-up. We had a wonderful stay, just a shame it was only only one night.

We stayed here in December, 2015 and were knocked out by the accommodation, the facilities and the owners. Peter and Pam have created an awesome bed and breakfast experience. They made us feel as if we were visiting family. Peter kindly drove us to and from our restaurants of choice on both nights. Pam's cooking is brilliant from canapés before...

Riverview Terrace was the best accommodation we stayed at in New Zealand! The house itself is beautiful, with a very comfortable bed and all the amenities you could need. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the complimentary wine and canapés each evening were a lovely extra touch. Pam and Peter are the most amazing, warm, genuine hosts - nothing is too...

Peter and Pam have truly thought of everything and made our stay perfect.

Pam and Peter demonstrate what hospitality and service should look like. They were both very welcoming and make everyone feel at home.

We tend to enjoy staying just outside of cities or towns, so that we can experience the quiet life, but get in to town for good restaurants, museums, galleries and groceries, so Pam and Peter's Riverview Terrace fit the bill, except for it being a B&B. We have typically stayed clear of B&B's as we haven't had any space, but...
