Not to be missed
Mitzi & Dan are consummate hosts and have left no detail to chance - everything about their place has been thoroughly thought through and is of the highest quality. The opportunity to cook in, cosy up to the wood fire and share some time with them & the other guests really is special. Don’t miss out on the full ‘Pioneer’ breakfast Or Mitzi’s special daily bakes - all delicious.

In a word: special
The Old Ferry is a true gem. From the historic building and gorgeous setting by a river to the sumptuous breakfast, Mitzi and Dan provided one of the best B & B experiences we have ever had. There are so many wonderful special touches like homemade treats for the guests each evening, oversized fluffy towels and robes, and the genuine warmth and local information provided by our hosts that set the Old Ferry apart. Would recommend this lovely place most highly.

Best Hotel B&B in New Zealand
If you are visiting Queenstown, this charming gem of a place is perfect for exploring locally and visiting Queenstown itself. Why stay in the busy noise of a town when you can relax in this lovelingly restored old ferry house. Dan and Mitzi are so accommodating and helpful and although not huge, each bedroom has been thoughtfully designed, with beautiful features, antique furniture and although some reproduction it has kept its old worldly charm whilst still giving a luxury experience, with home made cookies, fluffy towels and bathrobes.. WIth a hearty breakfast made to order your are set up for the day. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
