We spent 6 nights at Edgewater and loved it. Wanaka is a particularly beautiful location, the lake and views are amazing, the property is right on the lake. Our rooms were huge and very well maintained. Lovely friendly staff in the cafe, restaurant and housekeeping made our stay great. The ducks in the pond are even gorgeous. We can't wait... More

We stayed here overnight on the way to Queenstown but we could easily have stayed for several days. The rooms were warm, spacious and well equipped. Our room looked right out onto a beautiful pond with tall trees and the lake in the background - a stunning sight to wake up to! The town itself was small but lively with... More

We arrived at the Edgewater to find we had made a small mess-up with the booking. Absolutely no problem to the receptionist on duty Friday afternoon. She quickly and easily dealt with the problem and arranged a new room with the same deal we had booked on line. The room we were in was just great - a single bedroom... More

Quiet, peaceful and great food ,to go with beautiful surroundings. Great place to stay and relax in Wanaka NZ. Easy to find and great views of the lake and mountains. Units are private and quiet. Wanaka is an ever changing place, having gone there for the last 40 odd years it never fails to come up with something new, or... More

We had a lovely apartment here. It offered all modern conveniences and was very clean & comfortable - plus exceptionally spacious! Perfect for a family. We had a kitchenette, so we ate in, so can't comment on the food, but the setting & ambience were super. We had a hire car & were skiing most of the time,so didn't need... More

Dear Bittenbytravelbug4 Sounds like you had a great time with your family and enjoyed the skiing on offer in the Wanaka region. Sorry to hear about the hot pool however. We do ensure this is emptied very regularly - especially during the heavy use we experience in the winter time. It does take a little bit of time to re-heat... More

We came here for a few days as part of a group of friends doing a South Island trip, the person who handled our check-in (Rachel) was really helpful in sorting out a few irregularities that had crept into the booking and generally getting things set up for us, we got a fantastic room close to the water's edge with...

a bit dated around the edges; very neat and clean; the views from rooms in sections 4 to 7 will be very nice; we had one large room (one king bed) with a lounge and a kitchen area. Our party had another room that had a queen and a single bed. The second room was very cramped. Each room had... More

Kia Ora Thanks for taking the time to write this review. You certainly covered a range of aspects of the property clearly. From your review it appears you stayed in suite room and your friends in a hotel style room. As you rightly point out they all have views and access to the lawn. We are sorry to hear that... More

we had a super week at Edgewater in August 2014. Being away from the center of Wanaka means the resort is generally very peaceful and the absolute lakefront setting unbeatable. 10 minute walk to Wanaka township on a lakeside path. ($10 taxi ride)The one bedroom suite we had was spacious and comfortable, very warm with a kitchenette that we put... More

The Edgewater is a lovely apartment complex close to the lake and surrounded with countryside. The apartments themselves are a little tired but they are clean and well equipt. There is a communal laundry facility which is great value for money. The restaurant is average, the breakfast basic but the staff are very friendly and helpful. We tried our hand... More

We stayed over for a week holiday. First booked a double room but were disappointed by the small size and old interior even if the view was great. It is more like a motel style with units spread over off the reception area. Upgraded to the suite and kept the same stunning view over the lake but got so much... More
