Set on a beautiful lake, we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite from a reserved triple, but that caused my daughter to have to sleep on a sleeper sofa in the living area which she didn't think was comfortable. Our bed and all the linens were very comfortable and the unit was very large, with a kitchen and a... More

Kia Ora We appreciate your comprehensive review of Edgewater. I am sorry that the washer/dryer was slow but pleased that our team took care of your washing. Equally we apologies for the hot pool. From time to time it does need maintenance, especially in light of the busy season we're experiencing. I can't tell which room you were in but... More

We had been on a hiking trip on the South Island for the prior week and this was a bit of a return to civilization. The hotel is fairly large but well laid in a number of two story buildings on a large property right near the lake. We had a suite which was large and nicely furnished and well... More

Did not stay but went for meal. Venison was overcooked. Service slow even with only a few customers. Staff could have been friendlier and made a bit of conversation when taking order. Several local people have also commented. One family member had steak with salad for over $30 - paid extra for chip

Easy and pleasant checkin. We got an end room 612 which had a nice view but up some stairs. A little hot during the day but cools off quickly at night. Stayed two nights and had to ask for our room to be made up on the second day, and even then simple things were not done. For example no... More

We celebrated a 60th birthday with 40 family and friends. The pavilion setting was great. It is so close to the lake, that sparkles like diamonds, enclosed by beautiful snow capped mountains. Everyone liked their rooms and the lovely walks and convenience of a 20 minute leisurely walk by the lake into Wanaka. Staff were friendly and helpful with that... More

We went here for lunch between Christmas and NY - lovely view of the lake from outside seats, and the food was fabulous. The only thing wrong was that we were not told upon being seated that we needed to order at the bar - friends we were with had been there lots of times and this had never happened... More

We stayed at Edgewater for 4 nights and dined in the restaurant on our arrival. The location and views are to die for. The restaurant is a little dated - not helped by a play list of C&W hits bound to bring on manic depression. A "function" on that evening ( funny, we never saw people at the function) -... More

We were invited to a friends wedding at Edgewater and stayed the weekend. The room was really lovely with a fantastic view of a pond with trees behind then Lake Wanaka beyond. It is a great place to stay and we would recommend it.

Edgewater is a nice hotel with access to the Lake, located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The town center is about a 5 minute drive away, where all the prominent restaurants/bars/shops are to be found. We were fortunate to receive an upgrade to a 1 Bedroom Apartment with part Lake views on the Ground Floor (Room 805). The room was... More
