Had a wonderful stay with Lesley and Chris. They made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. I enjoyed my conversations with them and appreciated the abundance of information offered for things to do during my stay. The room itself was great, with an incredible view through a huge window. The common area sitting room is so inviting, I wish I'd had more time to just lounge there too. Breakfast was abundant and delicious, including delicious homemade bread!! This stay is slightly out of town (took me about 30 minutes to walk in along the lake, a little shorter by the main road) but directly on the bus route, making it easily accessible from both the airport and town. Hope to return for a longer stay!
The best home stay and best host we have ever met.
Lesley and Chris were great hosts and warm, friendly people. They were very helpful, answered all my questions and offered advice on things to do - of which there is plenty.
I felt very comfortable in their home which has stunning views of this amazing area.
They have given me a new bench mark, they are a 10/10
The place was great, it was cosy, warm and private. Lesley and Chris made me a superb breakfast with all the trimmings of a large hotel. I can highly recommend their place, you can expect a great experience here.
Brilliant all round. Delightful, relaxed, helpful and attentive hosts. Wonderful accommodation, with fantastic views. Could not have wished for more. Although just out of town, we were able to walk to the centre of Queenstown in 40 minutes, enjoy a great meal at a restaurant our hosts had recommended and take the local bus back.
We were welcomed with warm smiles and friendly chatter over a pot of tea & slice. Leslie then gave us a very helpful introduction to Queenstown and its main locations. Larch Hill B & B was kept spotless, and our room serviced each day. We enjoyed meeting travellers from other countries and had lovely chats with other guests each breakfast.We really appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of Leslie and Chris. Thank you!

My stay with Lesley and Chris was truly one of best I have ever experienced as a traveller. They are gracious, friendly and caring people who were always willing to assist me with information and suggestions. Combine that with great breakfasts, lovely room with a view and my enjoyable walks into town along the lakeside trail each day - truly remarkable!!!
I will always cherish the memories of my stay and look forward to the day when I can return once again:-)
Thank you Lesley And Chris!
What to say and even where to start?
Lesley is a wonderful host - it has been a pleasure staying at their perfectly located house for several nights. The room - just fantastic and a Million $ view. Looking at the stars at night and waking up while the sun rises above the lake. Breakfast - the most important thing for me to start the day - perfect. Everything you need, even NUTELLA. Lesley is picking you up from the airport - what a service!
She knows Queenstown in and out and is always helping and assisting im order to make the entire stay just comfortable. You can ask for her help at any time.
I always felt welcome during my entire stay, rooms come with your own bathroom so privacy is guaranteed. I would always return. Lesley and Chris are the perfect hosts and I can surely recommend staying with them for anyone traveling to Queenstown, NZ. Lesley, thank you very much.

Lesley and Chris were great hosts with a great Bed and Breakfast. Lesley was very responsive and easy to connect with from across the world. Our check-in was smooth. The view was amazing, both from our room and all around the house.
My husband and I both overslept in the morning, and Lesley was very understanding. Although it was probably more lunchtime, Lesley's homemade breakfast far surpassed any breakfast at a BnB I've ever had. So delicious, lots of cold and hot options, and of course, great conversation which included helpful travel tips!
Thanks again Lesley and Chris!
I recently booked larch hill for my mum who went to queenstown for a skiing holiday. Leslie and Chris were fantastic to deal with during the booking process. They answered all my questions promptly and with detail. Their home sounded perfect for mum... And it was! She has not stopped talking about her wonderful stay since returning home. Mum said her room was so comfortable, and Leslie did everything to make her stay luxurious - fresh towels, beautiful pillows, fire burning at night. She was well set up for long days on the slopes with a varied and huge breakfast. The bus to get into queenstown was nearby, so she would head into town for dinner but just loved returning to the quiet of larch hill. Mum says she will always stay here when in queenstown. Highly recommended.
When we arrived Chris warmly welcomed us with a sense of humour and a lovely cup of tea. We were looked after so well by Chris (Lesley) was away. Delicious breakfast, more than we expected. Room was warm and comfortable, electric blanket was good. View was spectacular. We highly recommend staying with Chris (and Lesley).
