Staff here are wonderfully friendly and very helpful with information and suggestions and just plain friendship. This is a great location and central to downtown; near everything. The lake is a 30 second walk away. The room is clean and efficient; plenty of space. Heating works well and extra blankets are on hand if needed. I stayed here longer than... More

Quite, nice, tidy and heaven of a place. It does not have lake view rooms but the motel is adjacent to lake road and is barely a minute walk. Extremely friendly and helpful staff/owner. Which ironically reminds me, I completely forgot to handover room keys. On the day of check out we had booked Milford Cruise so left our luggage... More

We had room 2 which was at the back of the complex away from the main road and was nice and quite. This room and room 1 have been recently renovated and are very modern and spacious. They have been well appointed. There was a separate lounge and bedroom area which allowed you to spread out a little. It was... More

A quiet motel set, as its name suggests, by the side of the lake. Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Location is within easy walking distance of town centre shops, resaurants and supermarket.

Big clean rooms, set back from the lakefront road but facing inwards so there's no street noise at all. Nice full-sized laundry facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff. Easy short walk to restaurants along the lake or in town. Great value relative to other motels right beside it.

We really liked our stay at the Edgewater. It is located close to downtown which we found perfect as we would walk to wherever we wanted to go i town and it was on the waterfront so it was easy to walk the path along the shore. We had a unit with an ensuite bath and kitchenette. The room was... More

I booked a two bedroomed apartment at the Edgewater Motel last week on our way back to Queenstown from Milford Sound. We arrived a little late and the lady had emailed the night before and said she would wait for us to arrive, that she did and I got a very warm welcome. We were so impressed with our apartment;...
