4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

We are currently staying here right now for 2 nights. We were so impressed with this little gem that I needed to write a review instantly. This is a two leveled unit with an amazing broad view of Wanaka and the lake. Upstairs is the bedroom with a divider wall, allowing you to see downstairs and the amazing views through the big glass sliding door. Downstairs is the lounge and a small kitchenette (bar fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery/crockery and a sink.) and the bathroom and toilet. Out the sliding door is a balcony with a table and chairs. It is so nice sitting out there with a drink and watching the boats gliding around the lake. This unit is a comfortable size for a couple and there are also other units in this motel to cater for larger groups and small families. The unit is extremely clean and tidy. If we are ever back in Wanaka we will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: Choose unit 5 or 6 (top level with the balcony)

We stayed for two nights and loved this motel. The room was spacious and comfortable and the view over the lake was fabulous. The hostess was kind and helpful, and we were glad to take advantage of the laundry service. I am happy to recommend this motel, and if we return to Wanaka we would definitely stay there again.

Stayed there in Sep 2013. The hotel was overlooking the Lake Wanaka and the view was spectacular. Room was clean and spacious. The motel provides free unlimited wifi to their guests! The host was friendly and was accomodating.

Stayed here during our honeymoon. True to what the other reviews say, the view is spectacular! On the first morning, we saw a huge rainbow stretch across Wanaka lake from our window! Coupled with snow capped mountains in the distance, it was indeed a view to die for.

Rooms were quiet, clean and warm, with a heater in the bathroom - extremely useful for those zero degrees days. Kitchenette was equipped with utensils, a kettle and a microwave. Would be good if there is a stove and pots for some light cooking but there are many restaurants down beside Lake Wanaka and a good supermarket so it was no bother.

What left the most lasting impression on us was the kindness of the motel owner. We were going to Fox Glacier via the Haast Pass and was afraid that the road might close on our way back due to bad weather conditions. The lady we corresponded with first helped us call the people from the Road Report Helpline to check whether the pass was open, then made advanced reservations for us for the following two days when we were scheduled to come back. When we were at Fox Glacier and heard news about roads being closed, we called back and she was kind enough to waive charges for the first day. Her help, kindness and concern was indeed heartwarming. For that, I will definitely stay at Lakeview again should I ever come back to Wanaka.
