5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The views from the room are really nice. The rooms are clean and the bed is very comfy. Its located a 15 - 20 minutes walk from the center of town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very nice. We will sure (hopefully:) stay there again.

The first thing to say about this place it that the location is great. The view over the lake is splendid. It's possible to walk into town along the lake edge - about 20 minutes; and there's a very enjoyable walk in the other direction, too. We were received very well at reception - by a UK compatriot who had... More

Lovely studio room, warm light and modern. We stayed second floor and hard to carry a big luggage. My toilet heater is not working so a bit cold when shower. 10 min from city is acceptable if you drive. Overall, good choice to stay n restaurant is good too

Kia Ora Thanks for taking the time to share you experiences at Edgewater. It is convenient to drive the few kilometres from the centre of town, but there is a walk-way from the front of the hotel. This hugs the lakefront and takes around 15 minutes to walk. I am sorry to hear about the bathroom heater. Did you mention... More

My husband and I chose Edgewater Resort to spend our 23rd wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The view of the lake and the beautifully manicured grounds was spectacular. We had a suite which was beautiful with very nice furnishings and a large comfortable bed with lovely crisp linen. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and I will... More
