My wife and I stayed at the Lake Hawea hotel for two nights, choosing to eat at that hotel on our first night. We arrived at 6.30pm and placed our meal orders at approx 6.45pm. We initially ordered water for our table, followed by two gasses of wine. The water was unreasonably delayed, as was our wine, requiring me to...

The Lake Hawea Hotel is fantastic. They have both a hotel and a hostel in separate adjacent facilities. Some of the reviews that are posted here are for the hostel, like the comment about the shared kitchen. We stayed in one of their Family Suites. It was beautiful. Each of the suites and studios has a great view of the...

We'd booked one night in a budget lake view studio. I was worried about the "budget" in the description but needn't have been. The view from the balcony was spectacular both day and night. The room was very comfortable. Yes the bathroom needed to be updated, but for the price paid, we were very happy. We had dinner in the...

Stayed one night in room 17. Hostel is basic but clean and suitable for our needs. Bathrooms in a separate building behind the rooms. They were clean but busy during peak times. Plenty of young people staying here so can get a bit noisy at night

Check in was fast and the reception was very helpful. The shared kitchen was good although it is not so well equipped and there were no condiments and extras. I like that there is a in-room sink. The wifi was adequate. The on-site restaurant serves up very tasty meals. The rooms are a little on the small side and the...

Worst experience EVER in a hostel. This hostel owner is unprofessional. Following a mix up, the owner rented out our already reserved room to others on the second night of our stay without attempting to contact or notify us, leaving us with nowhere to sleep that night. We had paid a deposit the previous day on arrival, and there was...

Amazing view on the Lake, the beds were pretty good but the room would need to be refreshed. The door opened by itself a few times with the wind as it was hard to correctly close it, and there is no lock on the door to be sure it was well closed. The carpet looked a bit old with many...
