We stayed at the 5 Star Lane, Queenstown NZ in September 2011. The location was fantastic and the views stunning. The accommodation was excellent as we had access to the lounge with a warm fire and TV access. The room and ensuite were of a very high standard. Merlin and Ray were excellent hosts and gave us extremely good local...

I stayed here in April 2011 with my husband and our 16 month old daughter. The house itself is lovely and is in a great location, especially if you are travelling with a small child as it is just outside of the main town. The views are spectacular. The house has everything you will require and you have a main...

The view of the water and the mountains from the shared living area and huge deck of this lovely bed and breakfast takes your breath away. The hosts, a husband and wife, and their two standard poodles are very welcoming; they make you feel at home immediately. They are very knowledgeable about the area and suggest fun things to do...

Merlin and Raymond (and their two dogs) made us most welcome, from the initial tea and (freshly baked) buns as soon as we arrived, to booking trips for us so we could pay everything in one go at the end of our stay. It is up a hill on a small road overlooking Queenstown and the mountains; take care over...

What can I say about 5 Star Lane. It is a 4+ starred Qualmark spot but it deserves six stars in my book. The owners, Merlin and Ray Sansom, are the most interesting, concerned, and delightful hosts and they have two wonderful female standard poodles, Alice (white) and Boodi (black), who were excellent companions. The views from the guest bedrooms...

Stayed at several places in NZ. This one tied for the best B and B I have ever stayed at.... ever! The views were spectacular and the hosts were AMAZING! So helpful, kind, and generous.

Our stay in this B&B was 5 star true to its name. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms were clean and neat. The lounge was warm with a fireplace. The view from the deck is beautiful and straight out of a picture book! The hosts are friendly and so are their dogs. Would definitely recommend this for a stay.

A great place to stay in Queenstown. All of our expectations were exceeded, from the room and lounge area with fireplace to the wonderful breakfasts. The view from the room was spectacular. Merlin, our hostess, was extremely gracious and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend staying here.
