We stayed for two nights in a one bedroom suite which had a lovely outlook over the duck pond to the lake. We were greeted warmly and found the room to be very well equipped and spotless. The location is superb, with an easy walk into town. We made good use of the spa.

We spent some time here recently and had two apartments, one ground floor and one first floor. The rooms were spacious with a living area/kitchen furnished with comfy sofas, dining table and chairs and kitchen with fridge, microwave etc. Patio doors led outside from the living area and we had fantastic views over the lawns to the lake. The double... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night last week. Our suite was clean, quiet, and comfortable, with a nice view of the lake. George Smyth, the concierge, was extremely helpful in suggesting hikes and giving us directions and advice. The setting of the hotel with spacious lawns on the lake is exceptionally beautiful. A very nice place to... More

We stayed here for three nights on our trip round New Zealand. It was a really peaceful place to stay. The hotel is on the edge of the Lake as its name suggests and has lovely lawns which go down to the water. We had a suite which was well appointed with laundry facilities although there are facilities in the... More

My husband and I decided to walk the little path from town to the restaurant and grab some lunch. While there weren't a lot of vegetarian options, my husband and I had been advised that we should get the scones. Delicious!! They made them from scratch, which took about 20 minutes, but it was totally worth it. Quaint little cafe... More

As soon as we pulled into this resort we knew it would be good but to be told, on arrival, that we were being up-graded made this a very special stay. We had extremely spacious accommodation: bedroom, bathroom and a lounge with a view of the lake. It really was beautiful. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful and we... More

We had a really enjoyable time in Wanaka and do recommend the Edgewater. Places like this (on the water's edge) are our favourite stays and the views were great. Hopefully we will go back there one day.

We booked mystery hotel on Wotif and ended up at the Edgewater, we could not have been happier. They "squeezed" a fold up bed into the king suite, there was still huge amounts of room. The room was very comfortable, clean and had awesome views. Was just far enough out of Wanaka to be quiet but close enough to walk... More

This hotel is my favourite even if for just the view. We were here 11 years ago and it was good then - I think it might be better now. Staff were helpful and our room was to a good standard. A peaceful and stunning location beside the lake with gorgeous mountain views.
