We stayed at Clearbrook for 3 nights last week and really enjoyed it. The stream in the garden out the front is lovely - very relaxing to listen to when sitting out on the baclcony with a good book or a glass of wine. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Only thing that could have been better was for the wardrobe... More

My husband & i recently spent one night at the Clearbrook. Highly recommend this motel. Large well apointed apartments in a beautiful setting. A very short stroll into the heart of Wanaka..lake & shops just down the road. Friendly welcoming hosts. A great choice to stay at in Wanaka.

We thought this property was an excellent value. Spacious studio, clean, provides sitting area plus very functional kitchen and washer and dryer, plus a sitting area outside with a view of the mountains. A babbling brook provides a soothing sound just outside. An easy two minute walk to the beach, lake, restaurants, the excellent Cinema Paradiso, and supermarket. All in... More

It was a pleasure to stay at this motel which we found to have a very comfortable room and all the amenities that one could expect. The washing machine and dryer in the room was a bonus.The restaurants and shops were located within easy walking distance and the laundry facilities were spot on. The brook runing past the motel kept... More

Hi Keith, Many thanks for your comments. We too enjoy the brook that runs along in front of the motel complex. I sometimes feel envious when I look out and see guests on their balconies with a glass of wine or just chatting in the warm afternoon sun. We are indeed lucky here in Wanaka. We hope that you both... More

This is the second time that we have stayed in this great motel in Wanaka. Lovely rooms, very well equipped, beautiful outdoor area with great views with a calming babbling brook right outside your door and fantastic location...close to town and a short drive to some amazing walks and beautiful scenery. Highly recommended 😃

We have just spent three nights at this property and were disappointed with the standard of the apartment for the price. To be fair we had just come from Queenstown where we had an amazing apartment for the same money. The owners were very nice and helpful. Very basic provisions which let the property down ie No replacement of washing... More

Hi Bronwyn, Nice to hear from you and thank you for your comments. All apartments face the afternoon sun - sorry about the weather! Gosh you are a lucky lady! I am familiar with the Queenstown property you stayed at prior to arriving in Wanaka. It is in a league all of its own! You must have been given a... More

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroomed apartment. Very clean, tidy and excellent facilities. Only gripe is the upstairs bedroom got very hot and with no air conditioning it made it incredibly uncomfortable to sleep. Had fabulous distant views of the lake. Great place to stay and highly recommended.

We had a spacious upstairs corner room with an excellent view of the mountains and town from our balcony. The room is very clean and modern and has a washer and dryer in the room! An excellent value. Very nice grounds, a babbling 'clear brook' stream running right by the room made it wonderful to sit on the balcony and... More
