Hotel room was very very dated .. Although you get what you pay for - is quite cheap! Lady on the desk wasn't the friendliest. The hotels Mexican restraunt was AMAZING! A must try. Great location, very close to Lake Wanaka, the main road, shops, cafes etc.

This hotel was excellent for me It was ideally positioned and although it is a hotel it also has a communal kitchen that is really well kitted out with plenty of crockery/utensils etc and a guest laundry and ironing room. Our room was very clean, comfortable beds and a small fridge which we could store all of our perishible food... More

Ok, this is not the Ritz, but your'e not paying Ritz prices. Yes, it is a 60's hotel, with lots of 1960's features, like the bathrooms, but we found it very comfortable for our 3 nights. And having a hot bath after a long day hiking was fantastic. Our room opened onto the garden. A lovely place to have our... More

We just needed a night to stay on way up to Fran Josef - the place is a bit old - our room was small but very clean and good for the price. I did notice that some other rooms didn't look as nice as ours - not sure if we paid more for a better room - we had... More

It's a 2 mins walk from the Main Street and the waterfront. Very convenient. The balcony puts some credits to the overall impression. Facilities are basic but I would say it's great value for money. Definitely a good one to try out in wanaka.

Me and my husband stayed here for 3 days. I would say that it is a good value for the money because it was very affordable. The hotel is in the town center and surrounded with all the establishments that you need. Groceries, restaurants, park, post office etc. Obviously, when you are travelling you do not really stay in your... More

Pleasant staff on reception desk create a welcoming impression. Lots of questions to ensure guest comfort. Breakfasts good nourishing food. More car exclusively parks for guests would be appreciated. There is a large gate at the entrance to the Hotel from the guest car parking area that is left open sometimes obstructing the steps to the pathway to the interior... More
