There are certain places where ratings don’t do proper justice. This is one. From the time we arrived I knew this place and their hosts were special. We came too late to go out for dinner and Pam and Peter were kind enough to throw something together for us. And it was very good! The breakfasts were great and so...

Riverview Terrace is one of the loveliest places (if not the loveliest) that we have ever stayed throughout our travels around the globe. My husband and I decided to elope in Wanaka and believed that Riverview Terrace would be the perfect place to be married, and we were not disappointed! From the moment we arrived, we were taken care of...

Thank you so much for your fantastic review. We were very nervous hosting a wedding in June because of the weather !!!

Look no further: this is where to stay if you're visiting (or getting married) in Wanaka.  My husband and I, along with two friends, stayed at Riverview Terrace when we recently eloped. From our very first email exchange, Pam and Peter were incredibly hospitable. As described by many reviewers before me, they really went above and beyond to make our...

We first discovered Riverview Terrace in 2008, returned with a crowd in 2010 and when my wife and I needed a special break we descended on Pam and Peter for four nights in Jun2014. Nothing changes at Riverview Terrace: the hospitality is fabulous, the food is fabulous, the views are fabulous. This place is consistently fabulous and great value for...

We stayed with Pam and Peter for 3 days. Rooms are lovely and the house is large, modern and very clean. The best part about staying, though, were the service and extras that offered. Pam's early evening canapes are like a fine dining restaurant entree - to the extent that we over-ate every single night. Peter offered lifts into and...

Many thanks Eva for your kind words and taking the time to write us a review. Peter & I really enjoyed having you both to stay, especially great because it was Mothers Day and you are both our daughters age so it made us feel we had them home with young ones in the house! Safe Travels.
