We stayed for one night in April and are very pleased we did. It is an older style Motel but super clean and comfortable, good wardrobe space, bathroom needs more shelves but that's usually a problem everywhere. The bed was large and linen good quality, very relaxing. Couch, kitchenette, all great. It was a bit hard to find as we... More

Would definitely stay here again. The views are magnificent from all rooms. Great amenities and comfortable bed. Service was informative and very friendly. Car park was a bit of a nightmare but they are working on this and we could have always parked on street. Great value for money and wonderful place to stay.

Small, older style, elevated motel on top of the ridge above the lake; 2 storey, just a 200 metre walk into town. We had a downstairs corner studio room (room 4) which was compact with a small kitchenette, a 2 seater leather couch, double bed and flat screen TV and a bench to eat our breakfast at while enjoying the...

A beautiful view from our room. The rooms are older but well maintained. Parking is a bit tricky down a steep incline to the back of the property. The internet was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. Can't think of a reason to look elsewhere.

Convenient location for Wanaka with wonderful views of lake and mountains. Comfortable room with all necessary facilities, shared outside patio area and garden. Parking area in front, beneath the rooms. Owner very helpful with spot on recommendation of restaurant and obliging laundry service at reasonable price.

We had a ground floor corner room which afforded some additional privacy (had our own small patio). The room itself was clean and comfortable. Free Wifi was a definite plus. We parked on the street, which is a short, steep climb from the entrance to the room; we had no problems with this arrangement. Took a walk after dark to... More

WOW, stunning view from room! I was in room 6 and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Shared balcony, but this was no problem and the view of the lake was utter brilliance. Wanaka is a fantastic place to see, a World Heritage location and it shows, the roads in and out are stunning, so if coming on a... More

Great view from our room overlooking lake Wanaka. Room was up to date in furnishings and equipment. Parking is a bit tricky, as there aren't many spaces and there is a steep cliff in back. Motel included free Wi-Fi and was well maintained. Would stay there again. Very quiet location.

The views from this motel are outstanding but the room we were in was very high standard as well. The complex is only a short walk to the town centre but sufficiently far away to avoid the hustle and bustle of a busy tourist town. The lady we dealt with was extremely helpful and friendly. If there is any downside... More

My wife and I spent one night here last month and were glad that we did. Our room was very nice and the view was fabulous! We got some great advice on where to eat dinner (Francesca's); every expectation that I had concerning our stay was exceeded. Lakeview Motel deserves its five star rating!
