The hotel itself does not have the newest fittings, the hotel has been around for a while, but we've had a very enjoyable time here. The hotel staff have been really, really nice, both the front desk guys and the guys coming around and servicing our rooms - they've made it a really comfortable stay for us. The rooms are... More

A great meal in front of the fire while it was snowing outside. It was white surrounding the lake and it was warm and cosy inside. As a group we ate, played pool, free wifi with great service. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Booked for one night but stayed two. Great location and efficient receptionist. Rooms small and outdated but comfortable and excellent value for money - $89 per night. Excellently equipped communal kitchen great for preparing own meals. Great hotel for those travelling on a budget.

Booked in for a night and stayed for two. Friendly staff very a very central location. Rooms not large but soft beds and great showers especially if your short! Hotel needs updating but is clean and useable and accordingly priced. Good parking and kitchen and laundry available to use for guests.

We stayed for 2 nights here. Location was great, near the supermarket which was very convenient and just a walk away from Lake Wanaka. Love the lake views too. Room was outdated like others said, but had basic amenities which we were okay with. However, the room's heater was not working - which was pretty bad since our room was... More
