This lodge was difficult to find, had dated fittings (had to remember how to work the old school shower!) and a very poor wifi connection. It was a pleasant location back from the town but still not far from all the action.

This was more of a small hotel rather than the motels we stayed at during our NZ holiday. I should have researched its facilities beforehand, so can't criticize it for not having kitchen facilities (except a fridge), but every other place we stayed did have, so beware. The room was quite small and very hot - no aircon. There is... More

Lovely little place on a hill overlooking the lake. Run by Japanese so very nice and clean and with attention to detail. It was a tad hard to find as the street has two parts - do not give up Wifi was a bit funny - yo had to keep signing up to it but otherwise the stay was ok

I made a mistake in believing this was a Motel it is not. There are no cooking facilities in the room and parking space is tight. That said the room was good, if a little small with a comfortable bed. The night we stayed followed a 30 degree plus day and the room had no air conditioning and no fan.

This is a very nice place....it's not the Ritz so don't expect that. But do expect a warm, friendly welcome and fantastic service; a high degree of cleanliness, comfortable beds and a delicious Japanese breakfast if you opt for that (do try it - I think it will impress...). And value for money - hard to beat!! We'd stay here... More

Very nice, updated motel with clean, well-appointed room. We like the common area lounge with TV, books, newspapers, and dining table. We also used the hot tub. The motel seemed mostly empty during our stay. Laundry machines were cheaper to use than at other places we stayed. The motel is a great Wanaka base. It is a short walk to... More

What can I say about my stay at Lake Wanaka Lodge... It was average. The Japanese chap on reception was the highlight of my ordeal. He was super friendly and did his best to be helpful and accommodating. My cynicism was piqued when I discovered white spots and stains over the bed cover. Needless to say you don't have to... More

This is a place that is hard to classify. It is part-way between a hostel and boutique hotel. Some reviewers have commented that it is far out of town but task is rubbish. It is 5 minutes walk to the nearest restaurants and 15 minutes walk to the lakeside. The location is good, very quiet and a partial lake view.... More

The location was the only negative for this hotel which is otherwise clean and comfortable... rooms are a bit tiny and does not have any views of the lake whatsoever... good for one night stay and if u have your own car to move around

Stayed here for 1 night on our way from Fox to Queenstown.. we had a car so it was okay otherwise it is a 10 min walk to the lakes... with so many options at affordable prices one could stay closer to the promenade and the restaurants and cafes... but still if you have a car, this place is nice...
