Looks amazing situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka, and we can't fault the views. We were there in February and it was quite warm, yet walking into the room it was stifling. We opened the windows and doors to get a breeze going, only to then realise they had the heater on. . .in summer. The bed was way... More

We got our booking at Edgewater only because the person in front of us at Tourist Information (iSite) cancelled there's. The place is great. We had a spacious tastefully decorated ground floor apartment (lounge, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom) facing onto grass overlooking Wanaka Lake. Having had a drink and light lunch in the grounds we then hired bikes. Later we... More

During our tour of the South Island NZ we had, it must be said, stayed in the odd hotel that was, shall we say, less than 5 star. Consequently it was always nice to arrive at one that increased the average so to speak. Such was the case here at the Edgewater Wanaka. Our room had a separate bedroom/lounge area,... More

Could only stay one night as it was quite pricey, but was a gorgeous room with a fantastic view of the beautiful Wanaka lake. The room was huge with a full kitchen, cooking facilities, very clean etc.

The Edgewater is located on the shoreline of Lake Wanaka and has extensive lawns and gardens. Rooms facing the lake have a peaceful ambience, are modern and spacious. The dining room and bar patio are also a pleasant experience though the food is average.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in a one bedroom second floor apartment with a small balcony overlooking the lake, The apartment was spacious with a good floor plan and great view. There was a combination washer/dryer in the bathroom. The washer part worked but the dryer part did not. Maintenance could not fix the... More

We have stayed her at least twice in previous years and find the consistency is great. From check-in to departure all staff were very welcoming and pleasant, particularly in the restaurant. We experienced no problems and found the rooms well equipped and maintained. (Only would like a heated towel rack in the 2nd bathroom!) W e will be back to... More

No doubt a beautiful location, well appointed rooms, and wonderful amenities. We had 4 people in the room next door to us, and just talking until 1 am they kept us awake. They weren't rowdy or boisterous, just talking, but it was like they were in our room. Very sad for such a nicely kept resort.

We stayed here for a week on a time share exchange with our adult daughter and her partner. Our 2 bed apartment was modern and well equipped. One of the best exchanges we've had in NZ. We had dinner in the resort restaurant on my birthday and it was lovely. Resort has tennis courts and spa with free bikes available... More

This was my send visit to Edgewater. It has the best location in Wanaka and the rooms have great views. It is very comfortable with excellent service. They have adopted the ridiculous practice of adding a percentage to your bill if you pay with a credit card. I can't remember if booking.com warned me about this but to be honest... More

Kia Ora We appreciate your feedback on Edgewater, especially our location, free wi-fi and great views, plus the service provided by our team. The bank imposed surcharge on credit cards are somewhat annoying but sadly very common practice in NZ and Australia (and quite possibly beyond). Guests are welcome to pay by any form of cash, so as to avoid... More
