While travelling down the west coast on the way to queenstown we decided to stay in Edgewater for 1 night, we got inking with road closures and ended up not arriving until 11.30pm where the night porter met us and brought us to our room. We paid a little extra for a suite and it was well worth it. As... More

Thanks Edgewater, we booked two nights in a self contained unit. We had such a peaceful time and loved the views and facilities we stayed an extra night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hoping we'll be back.

Booked mystery deal through wotif and was so impressed. Booking in was so easy & as we were having a break from the camper van appreciated the spacious & warmth of the room. Fabulous view too. Would definitely visit again. Although slightly out of centre of Wanaka was well worth the quietness & views.

One of our favourite places in nz. The one bedroom luxury self contained apartment was brilliant. Excellent quality, spacious, our own small but private outside space. The views were stunning and the walk into the centre a must(leisurely 30mins). The grounds are really spacious and surrounded in areas for recreation. The staff were great, food excellent and access to booking... More

We were staying in the timeshare section of the resort so I can't comment on the rooms however the staff were fantastic. From the moment we arrived they made our stay great.

We had a one bedroom apartment. Big, spacious and absolutely clean. Stunning view, overlooking the lake. A family of Paradise ducks was swimming quietly in it. Short drive to city centre. Nice to walk around the lake.

When you come to NZ, your here to shred. And when your tired from that, u need a comfy bed. A bed that's made and towels that are clean. And staff that are friendly and anything but mean. So avoid the backpackers that push u to the ledge. And put your feet up, at the wonderful edge......water hotel

We had a ground floor apartment on the end of the block which had stunning views of the beautifully kept lawns leading down to the lake. the best part of... More

Stunning views, a real open fire, friendly staff, and the best kept secret. .. freshly baked to order served with clotted cream and jam. Twinnings Earl Grey too but the only spoiler the terrible shortbread in the saucer. Suspect a packet mix. I rated three stars as place is very very dated although clean. Will certainly visit again.

We absolutely loved this place. After contemplating other properties, this one, positioned right by the lakeside was recommended to us by locals and it only took a moment to decide when we saw it. The apartment we took was on the ground floor with a huge living area with large floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the beautifully kept sprawling green lawn... More

Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater. ... more   less
