“Great Base for a Stay in Wanaka”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in February 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed them. The location is convenient for the town but is nice a quiet, the accommodation excellent and a bonus are good laundry facilities, sorely needed after 2 weeks on the road. The garden is very nice a contains a hot tub with a pleasant view in which you can lazily sip a nicely chilled wine! Wine is also a feature of the evening pre-dinner drinks for all guests which we found to be an excellent way for breaking the ice and meeting your fellow travellers and swopping stories and suggestions as well as setting up the evening out. We would definitely return.

We spent one night in the lodge.
We enjoyed the afternoon homemade snacks and drinks.
They gave us some recommendation for the dinner which was really good.
The homemade cooking breakfast is really good.
The room are nice and clean, maybe a little bit old furniture style.
Would really recommend Wanaka springs lodge !

This was an excellent place to stay. 10 minute walk to restaurants, 15 to shops. Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Excellent beautifully presented hot and cold breakfast. Included drinks and nibbles 6 to 7pm. Plenty of parking.Rooms and beds good quality. A great 5 days while attending Warbirds Over Wanaka.

we spent only one night in that lodge on April 28th, 2014.
at that time, wan a ka is quite an empty town. the winter season has not started ans the summertime is over.
thus, we were the only guests in the lodge.
John and Glynis, the owners, are perfect hosts. not only they pay a constant attention to your comfort but they offer guest a wine testing at 6pm in the cosy living room.
the bedrooms are comfortable.
the breakfast in the dining room is fantastic.
keep that address and stay there.

John and Glynis are the bee's knees in hosting, simply the best. From the initial greeting, the lovely room with a view and a porch, to the evening gatherings and delightful breakfasts, this is as Hospitality should be experienced.
A call to find pointers on local fishing, to wonderful and accurate reviews of local eateries, we got the best steers,even an invitation to tour a neighbors gardens.
We played 18 holes at the adjacent Wanaka Golf Course, true delight and a treat, but a bit dear.
So much fun, we stayed an extra day, and advise you to do likewise. Enjoy the hot tub too.

I was travelling alone and spent more time in Cordrona than I should have so arrived in Wanaka about half past 7 with nowhere to stay! I asked my 'Angels' to guide me and after stopping at 2 or 3 other places and sensing they were 'wrong' I arrived at the door of Wanaka Springs...as I knocked...,the hall light went off....I tried again...nothing.....but I was determined.....! Finally John came to the door and offered me a choice of rooms. Fantastic place, super comfortable bed - lovely fully tiled bathroom with everything you could need...balcony with a view of the mountains (and just a bit of the lake) - wonderful breakfast with his lovely wife producing the delicious cooked fare - and great chat and banter from the other guests....some of whom were friends. I would recommend this place to anyone - especially if you have nibbles and wine in the evenings (I must have been too late!) and all the other things that I didn't have time to do... Wonderful stay - I will remember it as the best place I stayed in New Zealand - thanks again John for taking me in!!!

Room Tip: only saw my room.....but by the look of the photo's there is quite a choice!
