Stayed on two separate occasions at Wanaka Heights. Both times we were met with very friendly and accommodating staff. It is positioned perfectly away from the hustle of town but within walking distance of anything you need. Good parking and the room was spacious. Facilities such as bed bathroom and kitchenette were adequate without being great but plenty of room... More

We stayed here for nights and had a wonderful stay. We arrived to a friendly reception and our room was all ready for us. We had room 2. It was spacious and clean. It had a nice wee area out the front with a table and chairs and the views were awesome. It is only a short walk to cafe's,... More

from the moment we arrived we were met with a friendly smile and very helpful staff. I assume she was the owner. Lovely lady who was very accommodating and even went the extra mile the next a.m. helping me to find a dentist for my husband who had toothache. She went above the call of duty expected and we were... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Great views of Lake Wanaka and the mountain ranges. Spacious rooms, good kitchenette facilities, comfortable beds, good heating. Close to the city centre and restaurants. The only disappointment was wifi, (not that we downloaded anything, we just used it for Emails, Facebook and Whatsapp), we were denied additional bandwidth, which was readily given... More

We booked two separate nights at this motel as part of our South Island road trip. The first night was our second motel experience after staying with friends in Christchurch and then a motel at Twizel. Sadly we didn't get off to a good start. We committed the Cardinal sin of arriving early, at noon to be precise. Despite the... More

Thank you for your comments. I do agree that things didn't get off to a good start, I wasn't privee to your previous experiences to your day nor your expectations when you arrived at the motel prior to midday. Unfortunately it is the busiest time of the year for us and check-in time is strictly 2pm to get all of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while we enjoyed the Cardrona Ski fields. Beautiful, beautiful place, with amazing views and modern decore.
