Nice appointment rooms with lovely views of the lake could do with some basic crockery for breakfast as not included in rate. Quite a walk into town nice during the day but definitely not for after dark. Bar area was nice would recommend eating there as restaurant quiet expensive.

Stayed 1st August for a night and wished it could have been for longer. About a 15/20 minute walk into the town along the lakefront. The staff were extremely helpful and the room was excellent. There was a conference in the hotel so the receptionist chose to move our room to one further away from the event which was really... More

This property is right on the lake--great views! It is near town--a brisk walk to town along the water but great scenery along the way. The room was lake view (recommend) and very bright, comfortable and inviting. Comfy bed and upscale bathroom. We were on a monthlong tour of New Zealand and were pleased with the quality of these accommodations.... More

Asked for a quiet room with good view and we certainly got the view! Room 710 - single storey block overlooking the pond and across to the lake. Quiet until neighbours ran their tap or flushed their toilet - very loud!! Room basic and tired but couldn't fault cleanliness. Room attendants clearly a credit to the resort. Location fantastic -...

We stayed here for 4 nights during our first visit to wanaka. It was approved a wise choice for a first time visitor:) The rooms are of proper size and well kept, with all facilities necessary, and beautiful view of the lake. We went there for skiing, and gladly found in-door locker for skiing. The hotel also provides public drying... More

The location & friendly service was excellent and although our room was clean & tidy it was very dated & in desperate need of a full refurb. I'm assuming they are in the middle of doing this based on other reviews but I would recommend requesting a refurbished room at the time of booking to avoid disappointment. 20minute walk along...

I had a great stay. I spent two nights at Edgewater resort. My room was spacious, clean and tidy. I was excited to find my bathroom had a bath(with a faucet that lets the water in the center so the hot water dispersed evenly), a shower (with TWO?! showerheads) and a kitchenette. The view overlooked the front lawn and had... More

Edgewater is in a glorious location in Wanaka, full views of the lake and mountains, lovely easy walk along the lake into town. Have stayed many times and the quality and cleanliness of the whole facility has never faulted. All the staff are very friendly, helpful and genuinely enjoy working at Edgewater which is pleasant to be around.

We loved the atmosphere at Edgewater. The rooms were beautiful, comfortable and clean with an amazing view & very comfy bed. Free wifi, gotta love that. Unfortunately just not walking distance to the restaurants in town. Would absolutely stay here again though!
