Stayed in a one bedroom suite overlooking a beautiful green lawn and Lake Wanaka. Large lounge area with plenty of seating, a full dining table and great kitchen. The bathroom was amazing with a double shower and basins, and spa bath so plenty of space. Quality linen and towels. A very beautiful and peaceful place in April and the restaurant... More

I enjoy the Edgewater, being right on the lake and the 15min walk into the town center is lovely. Our unit was very comfortable, clean and more than enough for the two night stay we had here. We ate in the restaurant on the first night - food was very nice and a good selection to choose with our fussy... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Edgewater for regretfully only one night, a second night would have given us more time to explore. The suite was nice with wonderful views across the lawned area to the lake and the mountains with easy access to the lake front and walkway, where you can easily walk into town. The one bedroom suite... More

We enjoyed staying at the Edgewater - our only regret was that we were only able to stay one night. The rooms are nice and we were fortunate enough to have a good lake view. The staff were friendly and helpful and the setting is beautiful. We didn't have the opportunity to dine here, so I can't comment about the... More

We stayed in a timeshare unit on a RCI exchange. Our first impression was very negative as the woman at the hotel reception was very rude and not helpful. She told us they had nothing to do with the timeshare and she could only give us the key (no explanations, no map, she had no time for us). Pros: –... More

Kia Ora We note your comments about the Edgewater timeshare property however as you've also noted the timeshare isn't part of Edgewater hotel., albeit adjacent to the hotel. Nevertheless we hope you enjoyed your time in Wanaka. Kind regards Trish More

This has a quiet, scenic lakeside location about a five-minute drive from the center of Wanaka in the direction of Wanaka-Mt. Aspiring Road. It'd probably take 15 to 20 minutes of walking along the lake to reach the town center. Though we didn't walk that far, we meandered along the lake to nearby Wanaka Station Park, home to some magnificent... More

Kia ora Certainly one of the most extensive reviews on Edgewater. We appreciate you taking what must have been quite a time to write this all up.

Stayed recently at this scenic town. Or room was facing the lake which gave us a fantastic view. The room was comfortable even though it was a bit dated, it was clean and tidy so no complaints there. The ensuite had a combination shower and bath. Our unit was on the second floor and the only way to it was... More

Edgewater is a comprehensive resort - it offers many services and amenities and is only a short walk from the little town of Wanaka. In front of you is the beautiful Lake coiffed with mountains. The public rooms are quite nice. The staff was friendly though a bit slow, perhaps from being stretched too thinly. We were a group of... More
