We stayed here for two nights on our two-week trip, and we were very impressed. Lovely, comfortable beds - and great to have the option of the double bed in the lounge and twin beds in the bedroom (happy to lie in bed and watch telly while our daughter gets a good night's sleep :-)) For us, it was the...

We stayed here for 3 nights while we enjoyed the Cardrona Ski fields. Beautiful, beautiful place, with amazing views and modern decore. Location was perfect - easy walking distance to main road, and the receptionist (feel terrible I can’t remember her name – blond lady, loves a chat. I really enjoyed talking to her and getting to know her) went... More

Thank you for your positive review, it was lovely having you stay and your little boy was just beautiful. I'm glad you enjoyed Cardrona and had a great time skiing. I do agree that when travelling with a small child and using a porta cot that a studio unit can be a little cramped, as it is really only suitable... More

Stayed here in July when it was chilly but the heating was up to scratch. Plenty of room, nice kitchen space and facilities, nice decor and great view from room. Comfy beds and pillows. Host friendly and helpful. Wanka itself is lovely and I liked being at the top of the main street, close to all the facilities but not... More

Had a 3 night stay at the Wanaka Heights Motel and thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked a one bedroom apartment which had ample space for 2 people. Had a full kitchen which included an oven cooker and microwave, handy when you like to self cater. The New world supermarket is only about a 5 min walk away. Very clean and... More

Thank you for your lovely review, happy you enjoyed your stay. As it was the shoulder season that you stayed rates were much lower than high season, we are so much more affordable than comparable properties here in Wanaka with lake views. It is an on-going problem here in Wanaka with wi-fi, if we win the Gigatown competition that is... More

We stopped in here for a night on our trip around the south island. Room was comfy, with ensuite and kitchen facilities. Lovely view of the lake from all the windows. It was a pity it was only for the one night.

Clean and comfortable motel with a great view run by the affable and charming Ann, a deracinated Aussie. Liked it so much we booked a second night. Ann was very helpful with local information, particularly which eateries to favour and which to avoid. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony clutching a gin and tonic as the sun set over Lake Wanaka....

Hi Barry, Many thanks for your lovely review, we do try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Yes we are looking at double glazing the units properly as they were done previously but 'on the cheap' so to speak. Look forward to seeing you again sometime. Kind Regards Ann More

Very nice motel in an excellent location in Wanaka. The view from our room on the first floor was superb and the room itself was of a very good standard. The general manager Ann was very helpful and the motel has all the on site facilities you would expect. A good place to stay in Wanaka

There is not a lot more that I can add. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable with view of the lake, parking was just outside the room. We should have stayed longer here. Oh and it was good value for money too. Would recommend this motel. It was s short walk down hill... More
