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.

I love this place. Lovely location, clean and comfortable room. We stayed here for 1 night for our next trip to Franz Josef. Our motel has mountains and lake view. Free WiFi with superb speed. Kitchen amenities were complete. That's what we need the most. Laundry also FREE. Isn't it awesome? The owner, Mr. Brett (sorry if I spelled it... More

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.

We stayed here for two nights and everything about the motel and it's location was great. It was very close to all the restaurants, bars and shops and it was a lovely walk to all of them with wonderful views of the lake and mountains. The rooms themselves were absolutely fine and very clean. The owner, Brett was a mine... More

Nice view of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Close to town and our friendly hostess Charlotte made us felt right at home! Nicely appointed chalets with free usage of mountain bikes. Comfy bed and comprehensive self catering facilities. Recommended!

On a road trip around the SI this was my favourite stay and will be returning. Although the bedrooms we had was fairly small the hosts and rest of the layout of the room was top notch. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, so much so that our in-laws cancelled a booking in Lake Tekapo to return to Wanaka... More

My partner and I stayed in this beautiful hotel consisting of 6 or 7 chalets. We were early arriving and were lucky enough to get the front chalet (chalet 6) with a breathtaking view of the lake overlooking the park. The self contained room was huge for 2 people with modern styling and decor it made you feel at home... More
