About this listing

The space

Our Bed and Breakfast cottage is super-cosy and warm and is set in a quiet cul de sac just an easy 5-10 min walk into Wanaka town centre and lakefront.

Each of the 3 bedrooms has it's own private bathroom (2 have ensuites and the third bedroom has a large private bathroom next door to it) and have Super King or King sized beds. We can make rooms up with double beds or with twin beds as the mattresses all un-zip. Just let us know what suits you and we will make sure it's all ready for you.

The shared guest lounge is really sunny and warm, with a log fire for those winter evenings and leads onto a lovely sunny deck area where we serve afternoon tea in the summer. Free WiFi is available throughout the house.

We always welcome our guests personally with some home baking and a cup of tea / coffee / juice etc and help you with any questions or information you might need for your trip. We are familiar with just about all of the local activities and are more than happy to help you with bookings and recommendations.

In the morning we will cook you a good hot breakfast (fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, cereals etc plus a cooked course such as blueberry pancakes, or eggs and bacon for example). We serve this in our dining area along with any other guests, so it's usually nice and sociable.

Wanaka has loads of activities and is a year-round destination. From excellent walking and biking to sky-diving, paragliding or canyoning, there's something for everyone. The Mt Aspiring National Park is an hour's drive from the town

We run this B&B as a business and enjoy meeting people from all around the World. Criffel Peak View is a sociable and friendly place, we look forward to hosting you :)

This is a fantastic B&B. It's within walking distance of most if the shops, restaurants, and lake activities of Wanaka. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts were friendly and extremely helpful. They had a thorough knowledge of things to do/see in Wanaka as well as NZ in general. The B&B is also very clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend staying here.

Criffel Peak was a most enjoyable stay. The room was very comfortable with well appointed furnishings. Great ensuite bathroom. Susie and Caroline were very accomodating even with our later than expected arrival. Happy to help with dinner and activity recommendations. Breakfast was delicious eggs, bacon cereral and all tge trimmings. Thank you for your lovely hospitality!

Caroline was around to greet us with drinks and muffins -- quite a treat. She's always ready with some ideas and advice for things to do around Wanaka. We took her advice on a day hike and absolutely loved it (thanks Caroline!). There were two other couples there during our stay, but the place was very quiet and easy to relax. Caroline prepared a great breakfast in the morning. Overall, our stay was wonderful, thanks in large part to the cheery and welcoming disposition of our hosts!

We had a great stay at the Criffel Peak B&B! We only stayed 1 night but Caroline and Suzie was so welcoming and helpful, we wished we had stayed longer. They had vast knowledge of the local area. All you need to do is ask. If we ever make it back to Wanaka, this would be our go-to accomodation choice.

I highly recommend Criffel Peak B&B. Susan and Caroline are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home - nice breakfast as well! The facility is spotless and very comfortable. The location is within walking distance of Wanaka's restaurants and shops (very nice if you've spent a lot of time in the car.) Susan is also very helpful when it comes to travelling the South Island. 5 stars for sure.

We had a wonderful experience at Caroline and Suzie's! It was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the place was super close to the town center. Breakfast was delicious and hearty -- the homemade muffins were a highlight. We enjoyed getting to know Suzie and Caroline, as well as the other guests that were staying there. Finally, Caroline and Suzie went above and beyond to help us with planning activities for our stay. Wanaka is AMAZING, and Caroline and Suzie made it even better.

My husband and I could not have had a better experience here. The hosts are so wonderful, knowledgeable, kind, and welcoming. The house is very bright and comfortable, the food and conversation at breakfast are such a fun start to the day, and the location couldn't be any more convenient. Thank you so much Caroline and Suzy!! Meghan and Jayme

Caroline and Suzie are both orginally from the UK but have lived in NZ for 15 years. We are both keen skiers and love mountain-hiking, biking and running. Suzie is golf-mad and tries to play at least twice a week!

Wanaka is a fantastic place to live and we have run our accommodation business for the past 8 years. We love meeting people from all around the World and helping them have a great trip.
