It seems we got upgraded when we did our online booking. We had a huge 1 bedroom apartment with a lovely view of the gardens. It was very well fitted out, complete with a kitchen and clothes washer. The bed was comfy and there were two large televisions in the apartment. It was a bit of a walk to town... More

We had two nights at the hotel with a lovely room overlooking the lake. Breakfast and lunch were great. Unfortunately the outside hallway lights come through into the main bedroom. There are curtains but they ineffective in stopping the light shining into the bedroom. I considered removing the bulb that was burning all night (planet-unfriendly) but would have needed a... More

We really enjoyed staying here. We were given a very spacious room with a panoramic view over the lakeshore.The view is wonderful. Very pleasant staff. Just outside town, but within walking distance, following the path along the shore of the lake.

We spent five nights here and would recommend it to others. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a great relaxing stay by the lake. I'd recommend getting one of the apartments if you have children for some extra space. There's a lovely cafe on the lake which is great for a coffee or a beer in... More

We had a very relaxing stay at this wonderfully appointed hotel. The property fronts directly onto the Lake with wonderful grounds and park benches to take in. You would probably want a car if heading into town, however it is only a 20min walk along the lake front. For the cycling enthusiasts, the mountain bikes which were included in our... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment here, clean, roomy with a lounge, kitchenette with mod cons. Our unit is on the ground floor facing the lake. With the well manicured lawn just right outside our doorstep, our little boys get to step out and run on the lawn, with very picturesque view of the mountain and the Wanaka lake. Even... More

Very nice room, comfy bed, gorgeous setting. Nice walking path along the Lake Wanaka. The town of Wanaka is a short distance away. Dinner was very good. Enjoyable stop on our trip through the South Island.
