We stayed in an apartment with two teens. Very comfy beds! We had a few mishaps with the kettle (x3) but nothing was too much trouble from the wonderful staff. Great bath/shower it had everything we needed. The burgers at Sailz are definitely a must, they are the best! Absolutely stunning sunrise if you can brave the chill.

Just the second time we stayed at Lake Hawea Hotel with a Grab one deal both time with Continental breakfast included. This was nice mid winter break for us and the views spectacular as always. Unfortunately the Hotel service has slipped and not that welcoming also a bit slack with service and friendliness. Still the views from the lodges made... More

You get an incredible lake view. A good getaway place away from the busy city life. It's about a 10 min drive to wanaka where all the restaurants are. This hotel did have a restaurant that we did not get to try. Lea was very helpful and accommodating. The room is spacious. Wifi is a little blotchy and turned off... More

We book this hotel via Booking. com. I am surprised they did not allow to write the review in booking. This hotel has a good location close to the lake. But it is not equipped as good as we expect. First, we arrived at around 1930 and it is dark in autumn, but this is the only one hotel which... More

Family room with full lake view. Great room size, bed was very comfortable, roomy bathroom facilities, easy parking and onsite dining. There is a well equiped take away shop just metres down the road too. The lake is magnificent and we enjoyed walking along the lakes edge at dusk. Would recommend staying to others.

Reception seems to only focus their attention on the hotel portion on the resort. I can understand they would be priority, but come on. They told us at reception there was wifi which there wasn't. Everyone was huddled outside the front door and the car park because that was the only way to get connection. Also the common area and... More

He stayed at Lake Hawea Hotel for a couple of nights 12/13 Feb for the purposes of attending a wedding. The location was amazing, the room very comfortable and the staff fantastic. If the room had had air conditioning it would have scored a 5!

Stayed in the hostel for one night. Felt quite unclean and the shared bathroom and toilet facilities were not that clean or nice. Kitchen felt unsanitary. Would not stay here again but my boyfriend (who was with me on this trip) would.
