We were here for the 2015 Wanaka Ironman distance triathlon. The weather on race day was to say the least spectacular. The Wanaka hotel is located off to the left of town looking from the lake. On a small rise the rooms on the first floor offer an good vista of the lake and surrounding mountains. Make sure you ask... More

First impressions can be deceiving. Photos of the lobby and front of the hotel lead you to believe that the hotel has been updated but the rooms tell a different story. Bathroom faucet barely allowed water to flow and room felt crowded and small. Hotel was conveniently located. Housekeeping staff were pleasant and accommodating and the excellent kitchen facilities were... More

It's a shame that specially the bathroom was very tired with a not very appetising stain on the bedspread. However, it was clean with a comfy bed and excellently placed. It had an attached pub serving food,a bottle shop and a cafe that served breakfast... a central kitchen and laundry So all it needs is a refurb

Great place to stay. Central to cafes restaurants and bars. Good shops for provisions. Also a guest kitchen which was very well equipped and laundry facilities.good walking around the lake and more challenging walks in the area with stunning views.

The hotel needs a bit of an upgrade but we had a friendly check in and the rooms though a little old fashioned but were spacious, clean and comfortable. We did not make use of the kitchen facilities but they seemed to be adequate. Laundry well equipped. A great location for exploring the area.

three of us stayed in a wee three bedded room with ensuite. Clean and tidy. No room to swing a mouse. Able to open up deck doors onto a wee deck so could air smelly boots. Easy to access the town.Staff are very friendly and helpful. The price does not make it budget

Not worth the price is a very old accommodation, there were hairs in the shower and it just ruined everything. The good thing is that the kitchen is available for guest and very well equipped, just needs a little more of attention to the housekeeping service, because a dirty bathroom ruins everything

This motel has the perfect location in Wanaka. Very close to the lake, only two minutes walking, and with many restaurants, shops and bike rentals in the area. We booked an small room (233), and indeed it was only to sleep. There are bigger rooms with balcony and nice views to the Lake. The smaller has views to the mountains.... More
