We had a lovely apartment here. It offered all modern conveniences and was very clean & comfortable - plus exceptionally spacious! Perfect for a family. We had a kitchenette, so we ate in, so can't comment on the food, but the setting & ambience were super. We had a hire car & were skiing most of the time,so didn't need... More

We came here for a few days as part of a group of friends doing a South Island trip, the person who handled our check-in (Rachel) was really helpful in sorting out a few irregularities that had crept into the booking and generally getting things set up for us, we got a fantastic room close to the water's edge with...

a bit dated around the edges; very neat and clean; the views from rooms in sections 4 to 7 will be very nice; we had one large room (one king bed) with a lounge and a kitchen area. Our party had another room that had a queen and a single bed. The second room was very cramped. Each room had... More

we had a super week at Edgewater in August 2014. Being away from the center of Wanaka means the resort is generally very peaceful and the absolute lakefront setting unbeatable. 10 minute walk to Wanaka township on a lakeside path. ($10 taxi ride)The one bedroom suite we had was spacious and comfortable, very warm with a kitchenette that we put... More

The Edgewater is a lovely apartment complex close to the lake and surrounded with countryside. The apartments themselves are a little tired but they are clean and well equipt. There is a communal laundry facility which is great value for money. The restaurant is average, the breakfast basic but the staff are very friendly and helpful. We tried our hand... More

We stayed over for a week holiday. First booked a double room but were disappointed by the small size and old interior even if the view was great. It is more like a motel style with units spread over off the reception area. Upgraded to the suite and kept the same stunning view over the lake but got so much... More

We stayed here for a week during July/August, it was great :). Location is excellent, just out of town and if you feel like it an easy walk into Wanaka via the lake front. The views are amazing from either downstairs in the lounge area or upstairs from the bedroom. Great restaurant, rather large meals but exceptionally well prepared and... More

Excellent resort. Breathtaking lake and snow-capped mountain views with a corner picture window seat. Room was spacious with all facilities, including a washer/dryer in the bathroom. Very quiet with excellent on-site restaurant facilities but we also had a kitchen in our room. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only a short drive into Wanaka or is also walkable along the...
