Greeted by the ever friendly Charlotte upon my arrival. She was always around for a chat and general info for the local area. Recommended a great deal at the local ski hire shop (Outside Adventures). The room I had was the one with no view but to be honest it was all I needed after a day on the slopes.... More

Great value for money, Charlotte was incredibly lovely and helpful and especially so when i returned from a day of snowboarding with a broken arm! Short walk to shops. Amazing view of the lake and mountains. Would highly recommend staying here!

On the day we were due to check in we had some issues with ferry crossings, and we missed the check in time by over 3 hours. We hadn't even been able to phone and let them know. Charlotte had left us a note in the reception window, and had left the key in the door of our room. She... More

Lakeview room has amazing view out the window of the lake and mountains. Innkeeper Charlotte could not have been more friendly or helpful, even after I spilled tea on the freshly cleaned carpet. She refused our offer to pay for cleaning. Room is decorated with some retro 60's accessories. Very clean. Convenient in-room cooking facilities, and a separate bedroom. Loved... More

Very fresh and clean updated motel centrally located with convenient parking. Across the street from the main city park which sits by the lake. Spacious LR and kitchen. Separate BR. Lake Wanaka area is a must visit and this is a fine place to stay.

If we could give this hotel a good score we would, it seems a big harsh to give average yet it probably wasn't quite at very good. We stayed here for one night between queenstown and greymouth. We booked chalet 4 which has the lake view. Clean unit with view over oval to the lake, close to the shops etc.... More

Stayed here with my husband, mom and aunt. It was very clean and had great amenities. Free Wifi and laundry. The price was great compared to what we had to pay at other places around NZ for such a location and view. Just a short walk to the main streets of town, but amazing views just outside your door.
