Stayed here for the evening after visiting the west coast. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood and is a long walk from town - although the walk is a nice one along the lake. The staff was very hospitable and very helpful when we needed assistance with our activity booking the following day. There are some added amenities... More

Three nights in a one bedroom suite. 108 to be exact. Great view, everything in working order. 1 GB worth of internet for two devices, which was plenty. All staff encounters were pleasant. I would have a bit more faith in Qualmark, if all hotels rated 4 operated at this level.

My partner and I spent 3 nights at this beautifully situated hotel on the outskirts of Wanaka. Our room overlooked the lake and that could not have been more attractive or quiet. There was also space immediately outside to park the car. The breakfast, which as we we were staying for 3 nights or more was free, was excel;lent with... More

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
