Stayed one night in Dec 2014 in a double room. Booked spontaneously and got a room on the upper floor, far off receiption and car park. The room is pretty average, actually pretty archaic - I assume the room looked about 30 years back pretty much the same. Bed was very soft, the bed spread was glossy, silky dark-red and... More

Our experience was pretty much on par with other guests. The room was barely (lake facing), very tired, drafty sliding windows, no cable tv, built-in radio over the bed (bad design for 6ft2 guest!!) and a long way upstairs from reception and parking. It was however clean. $130 per night. We stayed 1 night.

We din't go in expecting five star treatment for the amount payed however and usually love any hotel which is old n retro but well maintained. We did like the fact that the lady couldn't locate our fully paid for two nights booking when we called and replied back with - look I can't find your bookin and what do... More

The hotel is very 60s, but clean and comfortable. Unlimited fast WiFi ($5 for 24hrs). Great location - 1 minute from Main St and the lake. The lady at reception was a little brusque but polite. ,.....................................................................

I stayed here with my family and it was in a good location, close to the shops and well priced. the room was dated, small and simple with bunk bed and double bed. Good for a one night stop over in wanaka so that you can explore the area.

Older fittings and bathroom very dated. Only there overnight so comfortable enough for that purpose. Convenient location to shops and lake. Kitchen facilities separate to room. Ground floor room opened up onto a shared grass area.

Really good location in Wanaka. Very short walk from the Intercity bus stop. I had a very comfortable room, nice bed, very good shower, the place was spotless. Some would call the décor a bit outdated but everything worked fine. Free 1 hour wifi. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

Perfect location to be use to shopping area and restaurants and the lake, of course. Inexpensive so don't expect 5 star rooms if you're on a budget. Rooms are comfortable and ours had a deck (no real view at far end though). Lovely staff, very helpful.

This hotel is on the main street of Wanaka and an easy walk from all the shops and the lake. Rooms are basic but I really only slept there so anything else would have been wasted on me. Fantastic view over the lake from the room I had on the first floor (no lifts). My only small gripe would be... More
