We stayed there only one night. Here is my experience and opinions about this place. Pros: Located 71 Ardmore Street, Wanaka on Hwy 84.easy access. Price is reasonable for what you get. Walking distance to the city park facing Roys Bay of Lake Wanaka, beautiful scenery. Good quiet night sleep. Cons: Room is smaller, for one night is no problem.... More

This hotel which is in a great location needs a total renovation, not the half hearted effort currently underway. Our room was small, with a recently updated bathroom (done on cheap) that had nowhere to store toiletry bags. The heating was inadequate and when we reported the problem to reception, we were advised to collect a fan heater from reception... More

Our room was clean. The location is great and the view from our balcony was great. However the accomodation wing looking pretty tired and dated. New bathroom fittings go some way toward tarting the place up but it really is 1960s style. You get an hours free wifi and pay after that, but it is slow I suspect no ever... More

This was the first hotel stop on our 50th wedding anniversary tour of the West Coast region. Rooms were clean and had a view of the lake (2nd floor). Reception personnel were friendly and inviting. The guest kitchen area was large, supplied with everything necessary. Cleanliness of this area was spotless. Only one night but enjoyable and pleasant stay.

We originally hadn't planned on staying in Wanaka but so glad we did. What a lovely town! This was the first place we checked for availability as it seemed close to everything and was across from the lake. The staff offered for me to look at the room before deciding to take it which was very generous. For the price... More

I used this hotel for a one night stop-over. The room was clean not very spacious but OK for a short stay. The shower room was more like a cupboard. The TV has a very limited range of channels so I could not find any serious news and had to resort to online news - but wi fi is only... More

This hotel was one of the older ones, basic - strictly for a 1 night stay. i thought the staff were a bid rude but it doesn't matter for such a short stay. Our room was far from the backside parking lot on the ground floor... did not like it! The hotel has a variety of restaurants but since it's... More

We stayed at this property in Feb 2014. The room was old and basic but very clean and came at a great price. Would stay there again. Location was superb, right in the city center. Free parking on site.

The hotel location is a short walk to the lakeside and eating outlets. No negative review about the hotel. Staffs are friendly and room is great. The facilities such as kitchen and car parking area are an add value to the price paid.

Here for Festival of Colour, located very centre and close to lots of bars and restaurants. Rooms looking over the lake are beautiful. A little tired regarding rooms but still very comfortable and clean. Great spot to stay and enjoy the region. Friendly small town feel and helpful reception.
