Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Room was spacious, quiet, well appointed. Staff at reception and in restaurants were attentive and friendly. We loved the free drink (excellent margarita) for guests eating in the Mexican restaurant

greeted by a positive and helpful lady at reception who set an excellent tone to our stay and long weekend. The fact that the snow at treble cone and cardrona was also world class just added more to the mix. Breakfast bacon butty 3 days in a row also a testament to Yumm!

We found this hotel quite a pleasant surprise. As you walk in the front door you are greeted by not only the friendly staff but a lovely foyer with two restaurants. We were shown to our room and lucky for us our room captured the afternoon sun, so we could take in the views on our own deck and enjoy... More

It is in the centre of town, has a couple of different restaurants under the same roof and is a very short walk to other restaurants and take-away shops. There is a well appointed communal guest kitchen where you can socialise and cook up your own meals if that is what you prefer. The place is not modern but is... More

For what we paid for a lakeview room, located in the middle of town, we were very happy. As well as on site eateries / bar / bottle shop, the location means it's just across the road from a Four Square and close to other shops and restaurants. As other reviews have noted there is a touch of age to... More

This is an older place in Wanaka but it's well maintained and very clean. There will be better places in town to stay for sure but if you want value for money and a great location this will be hard to beat. The check in staff were very friendly and helpful and stored our bags until our room was ready.... More

Right in the centre of town, lovely staff. Bit dated, tiny bathroom and only 1 hour per day wifi access but otherwise fine for a few night stay! We stayed second floor which was a bit of a mission to lug bags around through doors/stairs and passage ways but was quiet so a tossup. Parking fills up early evening.

First off, the location of the hotel is right in the middle of town on the main street - we barely had to use our hire car as everything (groceries, restaurants, and the lake!) was a quick walk away. They have a big shared kitchen, and a laundry with washers and dryers which we found really useful. There is also... More
