Welcome Home!

Welcome to Riverside Bed and Breakfast!

A warm welcome awaits you at Riverside Bed and Breakfast situated in the small town of Kurow in the beautiful Waitaki Valley, in the centre of the South Island of New Zealand.

A great place to fish both for trout and salmon, as we are just a couple of minutes walk to the Waitaki River!

Or just escape from every day life and relax on the patio with a freshly brewed pot of coffee, tea and home baking, take a look around the organic garden and smell the roses!

A perfect place to stop over for a night before you travel to one of the 4 airports within 4 hours drive of Kurow.
Are you looking for a tranquil location that has relaxed environment, a slower pace, you can breathe clean air and take in the beautiful vistas?

Riverside Bed and Breakfast is the ideal place to stay including if you wish to explore and visit local tourist areas such as:
• Mt Cook (1.25hrs),
• Lake Tekapo (1.5hrs),
• Twizel (45 mins),
• Wanaka (1.5hrs), or
• Queenstown (2.15hrs)

…. without the exorbitant price you pay for accommodation in these locations.
Also locally we have the beautiful town of Oamaru with its fine Victorian Heritage area which is the home of the Little Blue Penguins and outstanding Victorian buildings.

We look forward to meeting you soon!


"A group of 7 of us stayed at Lyn's B&B while cycling the Alps to Ocean trail last week and we spent a lovely evening at this charming, cosy spot situated alongside the A2O cycle trail in Kurow. Lyn was extremely kind and welcoming and made us feel very much at home, with the spacious outdoor entertaining areas a perfect place to relax with friends after a day of cycling. As we were part of a larger group of 14, Lyn was able to arrange accommodation for the other group members nearby and she organised a lovely dinner for us all at the Wild Sage Cafe a short distance away. We highly recommend staying at the Riverside B&B if you are planning a stop in Kurow"
