My husband and I recently stayed at Criffel Peak View. We arrived in Wanaka from Te Anau on a wonderful warm, sunny day to be greeted by Caroline with a cup of tea and banana cake right out of the oven. We enjoyed our initial conversation about the area and her suggestions of places to eat in the lovely lake-front... More

Breakfast is delicious, specially made by Caroline. She gave us great tips for sightseeing by car and a walk in the mountains with superb views on Lake Wanaka. Also... More

We stayed 4 nights at Criffel Peak and our hosts were charming and informative. The breakfasts were superb especially Caroline's Blueberry muffins. The atmosphere was relaxing and tea and coffee were always in supply. Our room was comfortable and warm and the bathroom shower exhilarating.

Suzie and Caroline certainly look after you here. Wonderfully warm welcome with tea and muffins on the table. Large guest lounge and kitchen next to the bedrooms with free internet. Caroline is a walking encyclopedia of New Zealand so if you need any help just ask. Excellent breakfast especially the blueberry pancakes. Thanks also to Chiara for the Italian lessons!
