We stayed for four wonderful nights at Edgewater with another couple. Our apartment was really two separate apartments both with fantastic lake and mountain views. Modern, warm and well appointed, right on the lake with full facilities and great helpful staff. Would love to go back!! :-)

A beautiful view! Sliding glass doors out to lake. Clean, excellent beds with choice of pillows. Coffees, teas, milk, bottled water are all complimentary. Comfortable sofas. The track outside goes around lake to town. We walked in and had a meal. Gorgeous sunrise. The only bad thing is that the bathrooms are becoming a bit dated.

This is Wanaka's best situated restaurant and accommodation complex - right by the lake but away from the main township. This little resort is an ideal place for work conferences, business meals and quiet gateways. You can walk straight from the outdoor restaurant or from your room to the edge of the water. But you pay for the privilege. The... More

It appears that nothing has been spent on the property for sometime. The staff do work hard to make things nice, the main beds are good, clean towels, clean room etc. However i would like to point out a few things that do need to be addressed. For example the pull out beds in the living room, while sleeping on... More

While travelling down the west coast on the way to queenstown we decided to stay in Edgewater for 1 night, we got inking with road closures and ended up not arriving until 11.30pm where the night porter met us and brought us to our room. We paid a little extra for a suite and it was well worth it. As... More

Dear Amie F Sounds like you made a good decision to have a night in Wanaka, given the uncertainty regarding the weather related road closures at the Haast Pass. We appreciate your kind words about our team and so pleased you got to enjoy Edgewater's amazing lakefront location in the morning. Kind regards Trish More

Thanks Edgewater, we booked two nights in a self contained unit. We had such a peaceful time and loved the views and facilities we stayed an extra night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hoping we'll be back.

Booked mystery deal through wotif and was so impressed. Booking in was so easy & as we were having a break from the camper van appreciated the spacious & warmth of the room. Fabulous view too. Would definitely visit again. Although slightly out of centre of Wanaka was well worth the quietness & views.

One of our favourite places in nz. The one bedroom luxury self contained apartment was brilliant. Excellent quality, spacious, our own small but private outside space. The views were stunning and the walk into the centre a must(leisurely 30mins). The grounds are really spacious and surrounded in areas for recreation. The staff were great, food excellent and access to booking... More

At Edgewater we have genuine local knowledge that complements our inviting accommodation and enticing seasonal menu. We can unlock the very best Wanaka experiences, tailored for you. Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater. ... more   less
