We arrived on a Friday afternoon and were very impressed. The room was brilliant, great size and very clean. It came with a fabulous outlook over the pond and on to the lake. The setting was wonderful. We attended a wedding on Saturday and again, brilliant. It would be one of the best meals we have had in a long... More

On our driving tour of the South Island we spent one night at the Edgewater Resort. It was a little difficult to locate at first as it was outside of the downtown. When we checked in we were very impressed with the grounds of the facility with excellent views of Lake Wanaka. The room was very nice, clean, very quiet... More

We were staying in a Time Share unit which is embedded in Hotel operations. This hotel has a phenomenal location in a setting which is one of the best in New Zealand. The operation of the Reception, Bar and Restaurant is measured and friendly without being familiar. The food is wonderful and we will return. Highly recommended.

Had one night in this hotel as part of my South Island tour. It was the best hotel I stayed in on my tour. Was in a one bed apartment (ground floor) overlooking the lake. Dinner was good, although service would have been a little quicker and breakfast choices were varied.

2nd time we have stayed here now. Beautiful views, very well laid out, nice and clean and would stay here again. Request a downstairs room to avoid carting luggage upstairs. Reception polite and helpful.

This hotel is great. It's the third time that we have been in 18 months. A great bolt hole for when you want to have a room which overlooks a lawn and then the lake. It literally is lakeside. We stayed in one of their 1 bed apartments so that the baby could go to sleep and we could stay... More

Stayed for 7 nights. Self contained cottages with all facilities. Located next to Wanaka lake. Awesome view from the restaurant. Stroll around the place with a leisurely walk. Give time to explore the facility. Has a spa and tennis court. Check for the room before occupying since at times the rooms are having a typical fishy odour.

We were fortunate to stay at the Edgewater for one night of our coach tour of the south island. It was the nicest hotel of our trip.

Kia Ora We appreciate your summary about Edgewater and hope that next time you vacation you'll have a little more time to enjoy Wanaka. We are located in a residential area, at the edge of the lake. There is a pedestrian walkway which follows the lake edge into Wanaka which takes about 15 minutes. It is quicker than walking the... More

This was the first time my husband and I have been to New Zealand and we chose one of our RCI timeshare locations, here. We had an amazing week and the staff at the resort were very helpful with anything we needed. Location was fantastic and we will definitely be coming back.
