Excellent location amongst the many wineries in Gibbston Valley. Mary and Terry were wonderful hosts, who gave us some great tips on what to see and do - awesome for us as first time visitors in NZ. Would definitely stay again.

Gibbston House a gorgeous B&B and beyond!

Pros: The location, construction of the house and rooms as well as the amenities on offer by Mary and Terry Houghton are all magnificent!
Cons: All are 100% perfection!!
Location: Mountains, vineyards for wine tasting and dining as well as bungee jumping by AJ Hackett, water sports like river rafting and other adventure sports!!
Mary and Terry run a fine 5 star establishment!! The house is a year old with a view of the vineyards and mountains which is magnificent!!! While hubby was at the Wanaka Air Show last weekend my labrador service dog and I were on our huge deck off a generous room with gorgeous ensuite (which included a double vanity as well as a huge tub and shower), enjoying the perfect weather and solitude of the breeze cooling us throughout the day. When I needed a break from the sun, I was able to catch up with my favorite House and Garden tv shows on the large flat screen TV. In the evening lovely restaurants were nearby in Gibbston and Arrowtown where we enjoyed sumptuous meals and wine - additionally our hosts provided wine and cheese on our private deck or in the well appointed guest lounge with mountain views as well as magnificent breakfasts in the dining area which took us through our day. We can't say enough about the excellent hospitality on offer by owners Mary and Terry Houghton and look forward to returning in the near future as Gibbston House is conveniently located only a short drive to Wanaka, and our favorite haunts of Queenstown, Arrowtown, Lake Hayes and Glenorchy!!!!

Wow, thank you for the lovely review, it was lovely having you both to stay and getting to know you, and your lovely service dog Jett. Terry enjoyed having someone to talk to who shared his passion for aviation and wine. We feel so privileged to be able to share our little bit of paradise with our guests. We hope you had a good trip back to Auckland. kind regards, Mary & Terry

Beautiful BnB in the heart of winery region

We had a wonderful stay at Gibbston House. Mary and Terry were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome and were very generous with their time and hospitality. The daily breakfast was delicious, as was the evening wine and cheese hour. The BnB is an easy 25 minute drive from Queenstown and we used the location to visit some of the other local towns and wineries (highly recommended!). Our room was spacious and the views of the mountains from our balcony were stunning. If driving there, we'd recommend entering via the second Gibbston Back Rd entry (coming from Queenstown) and you can then follow the signs to 53A. Thanks again for a fantastic stay!
