We stayed here for a week and it was a relaxing week. Our room over looked the lake with views to the breath taking mountains. There are bikes available so we went fro rides along the lake, stopping often to take photos of that view. The staff are top notch and their service was excellent. Afternoon tea is a treat... More

We stayed for one night and were lucky enough to get a room on the upper level which gave us a great view of the hotel pond, featuring brand new ducklings, and then Lake Wanaka in the background. The receptionist was professional and gave us suggestions for activities in the area, along with a description of the hotel amenities, including... More

A nice facility. The room itself is quite nice and spacious (we had a 1 bedroom suite which included a sofa bed for the kids), though not all rooms are facing the lake. Staff was very pleasant. There is a restaurant on site (breakfast can be included in your room price), washer/dryer combo in room, and they have a playground... More

We had a lovey suite overlooking Glendu Bay and sweeping perfect lawn to walk down to the lake edge. The staff were so friendly and the service could not be faulted. We enjoyed the coffee time each day eating freshly baked scones, I can highly recommend the smoked salmon scones with lemon and herb creme fraiche (yum)!. A good restaurant... More

We stayed in a triple bed room in block 4. The view of the lake is lovely and the room met our expectations. The staff were helpful and friendly. We ate in the restaurant and were very happy with the quality of the food. Do make sure to enjoy a scone or two.

Select your room carefully,not all rooms have good views (a relative term in NZ) we saw 3 rooms and went for complex 8 which is overlooking the snowy mountains,while other side is facing lake and town. Other issues were the heater that was insufficient during September nights. Big one is the terrible internet service(!) Not only you are limited to... More

We stayed here for six nights in an upper storey room. The views to the lake are amazing and had a bench seat at the window to sit and chill and soak up the views. The living area and bedroom were very spacious. The kitchen was a bit small but did the job. The only draw back is there is... More

Kia Ora Thanks for taking the time to write your comments about your stay with us. It is unfortunate you found the king room to be smaller than you expected. The bedrooms do have a large window with opening ability. However if you wished to advise your room number (bd@edgewater.co.nz) we could check that room specifically for you. We're pleased... More

We spent 6 nights at Edgewater and loved it. Wanaka is a particularly beautiful location, the lake and views are amazing, the property is right on the lake. Our rooms were huge and very well maintained. Lovely friendly staff in the cafe, restaurant and housekeeping made our stay great. The ducks in the pond are even gorgeous. We can't wait... More
