Very comfortable and convenient for walking into town. Nice community room for TV, etc with balcony. Nothing to fault it but seemed a little sterile. A little difficult to find as there are 2 sections to Tenby Street.

The area around Wanaka features small towns and there are more tourists than they can easily accommodate. It's no surprise therefore that small motels have popped up to meet the demand. The Lake Wanaka Lodgeswas a good basic base for a visit to the region. A nice Japanese couple welcomed us and showed us to our room, and helped us... More

We stayed two nights at the Lake Wanaka lodge. Both nights my husband enjoyed soaking outside in the hot tub for half an hour. We could easily walk down to the restaurants and back for meals at night. The room was very clean and well appointed and the lodge has a coin operated laundry - bonus when you are travelling....

In a 17 day self drive tour of NZ, Wanaka was my favorite stop and the Lake Wanaka Lodge the best accommodation. Some towns I paid much more, yet this hotel was the most glamourous and hospitable. I was at fault in making a mistake about our booking (which I'd rather not explain), but it was a whopper and I... More

Really enjoyed our stay in this quiet, modern B&B. The Japanese breakfast (extra $ but absolutely delicious) and outdoor spa in the garden are a huge plus. The manager and staff are extremely friendly. Perfect place to relax after a day enjoying beautiful Wanaka!

In the busiest dates of the summer season, it was hard to find accommodation that was not expensive and overpriced. Lake wanaka Lodge was very reasonably priced. For that the lodge is set back in a suburban street a short walk from the shoreline and main shops but we didn't mind that at all. The room we had was adequate... More

We stayed one night at Lake Wanaka Lodge. There were no other guests during that night, so it felt like the entire lodge was all for us. The check in was efficient, the staff was friendly and the free wifi was only available in the lounge room. The view from the room was a beautiful garden with changing colour leaves... More

The lodge is nicely tucked away lending to a quiet and relaxing retreat from the main town center with it's own source of natural spring water. When we arrived the host and hostess were extremely welcoming and through out the entire stay exhibited exemplary service. The room was tidy and the water pressure great! Free wifi was provided in the... More

Close to the town centre but in a quiet cul-de-sac at the back of the town (5 minute walk to the shops) with slightly obstructed views of the mountains and lake. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable while breakfast was very good and well presented, with a choice of cooked breakfast or continental (toast, cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit) AND... More
