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. Our room, our view, the setting on the lake, the grounds, reception, and the restaurant were all lovely. The friendliness of the staff was also superb. We had dinner and breakfast as part... More

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.

We arrived reasonably late in the evening and were a little travel weary. After checking into our room we decided that we would make use of the bar and restaurant instead of travelling a few minutes back into town. Rochelle read our body language beautifully and suggested we relax with a glass of wine on the comfortable couch in front... More

Good morning Great news that you're coming back to stay with us. Thank you. We appreciate your comments. As you noted the room refurbishment is in progress. It is a staged upgrade and will take until winter 2016 to be completed. All guest rooms are being majorly refurbished but the fantastic view still stays. Kind regards Trish More

I have no doubt that it has all been said before - but Edgewater has to be one of the most stunning lakeside locations in NZ. Beautifully cared-for grounds with trees and shrubs at their most stunning, red and gold, autumn best - our ground floor unit opened onto lawns adjacent to the pond - looking towards Lake Wanaka.

When we first arrived at this hotel, my wife and I were so pleased by the wonderful location in beautiful gardens with stunning views over the lake. However, our pleasure ended there. We were put in a first floor room, which could only be reached by a very narrow staircase, and I really struggled to get up with our cases.... More

I stayed with my family in the Hotel Room for 1 night during our trip to New Zealand. Check-in was fast and the staff was polite. We got the room on the ground floor, with the big sliding door facing the lake. The view from the room was fantastic and picture perfect. One can look on and marvel at the... More

Stayed in a one bedroom suite overlooking a beautiful green lawn and Lake Wanaka. Large lounge area with plenty of seating, a full dining table and great kitchen. The bathroom was amazing with a double shower and basins, and spa bath so plenty of space. Quality linen and towels. A very beautiful and peaceful place in April and the restaurant... More

I enjoy the Edgewater, being right on the lake and the 15min walk into the town center is lovely. Our unit was very comfortable, clean and more than enough for the two night stay we had here. We ate in the restaurant on the first night - food was very nice and a good selection to choose with our fussy... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Edgewater for regretfully only one night, a second night would have given us more time to explore. The suite was nice with wonderful views across the lawned area to the lake and the mountains with easy access to the lake front and walkway, where you can easily walk into town. The one bedroom suite... More

We enjoyed staying at the Edgewater - our only regret was that we were only able to stay one night. The rooms are nice and we were fortunate enough to have a good lake view.
