We absolutely loved staying at Aspiring Lofts. The room was amazing with a wonderful bathroom, bed, kitchenette and a breathtaking view of the mountains from the private balcony. Don was a phenomenal host and we loved getting to talk with him during breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful! My particular favorite was when we were too full to finish our muffins...

My wife and I stayed one night during our recent road trip around NZ and wishes we had more time to enjoy this lovely area and the friendly company of Don and Lorraine. Very clean and comfortable accommodation in a separate section of the house. Tasty breakfast. And to top it all, Don and Lorraine are very warm, witty and...

Our favorite stay in NZ and one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in. Lorraine and Don were wonderful hosts. The room was extremely comfortable, and the views from the balcony can't be beat. We would recommend Aspring Lofts to anyone we know traveling to Wanaka.

We spent one night at Aspiring Lofts and immediately upon arrival regretted that our stay wouldn't be longer. We were in the East loft which had a wonderful view over Lake Wanaka (although if you want the best view book the west loft). The room was spacious and so well equipped with tea and coffee facilities, a mini fridge, microwave...

Stayed here for almost a week. There have been so many starry reviews of this upmarket B & B it's difficult to find anything to add, but the owners make everyone feel welcome and special, and the accommodation is immaculate with lovely linen and towels: a balcony to sit and admire the views over the lake and mountains.Separate outside stairs...

Don and Lorraine are the key to this B&B. Their earnest concern for each guest's welfare, day's activities and and next destination create a warm and supportive environment. Don's well-timed and delicious breakfasts, quite varied, are a great start to the day, including Lorraine's ever-changing muffins that usually end up as welcome take-away treats for morning treks. The lofts are...
