The room is really nice and comfy, very suitable for those who visit Wanaka as a family, because the room is very large and spacious. The room also includes a kitchen complete with oven, stove, microwave, fridge and cutleries and pans etc. though the kitchen is placed rather oddly in the room - at the hallway leading to the door....

We enjoyed our stay. The room was perfect for our family. The view was very pretty. Hotel is an easy slight up hill walk from town. The women that runs the hotel is very helpful and friendly. They also have laundry. Well equipped kitchen in the unit.

Very clean and roomy 2nd floor with kitchenette, nice balcony, with views of lake, based on the corner of the highway and roundabout traffic busy and noisy, but not during night. Situated close to beautiful Mediterranean Supermarket and all restaurants and shops. Reception Staff very friendly and helpful, lovely lady

Stayed overnight during a road trip of the South Island. This was a good motel in a convenient location. Our room had a balcony with great views over Wanaka. The motel was clean, comfortable and provided all facilities. Would certainly stay here again if in the area.

Our room had a balcony with a great view over Wanaka, was quiet, spotless & very friendly at check-in. It's an easy short walk to supermarket, restaurants, and the lake. There was a separate bedroom we didn't use which does have some noise from the distant road into town, but there are trees to quiet it down a bit.

Wanaka Heights motel fits the formula of an older, spacious, family-run motel with full cooking facilities, our preference in accommodation in NZ. Everything was exceptionally clean and well maintained, apart from a reading lamp that couldn't be fixed, of little concern to us. The bed was very comfortable, and there were tables and chairs both inside and outside the room.... More

Nicely equipped reasonably priced motel.. Nice views of mountains. Walk to excellent restaurants, town center and lakefront. Wanaka is an excellent starting point for all sorts of recreation. Spectacular drive over the mountains to Queenstown

Stayed in an apartment with 2 queen beds. Room nice and spacious, with balcony overlooking the lake and mountains. We were there for a sporting event, and found the rooms nice and spacious... More

This may be an older looking lodge, but inside it is wonderful and the people are fantastic. We arrived a little before check-in and were able to get into our room right away. The kitchenette was fully stocked with dishes, glasses, and pots. The bathroom was small but clean as was the bedroom and outer sleeping area. There was a... More

This is a well located motel, and we had sensational views from our balcony. It is fair the say the facilities are dated. The rooms and common laundry area were spotlessly clean. However, there could be few places that better understand humble, friendly service . Jenny, who was the key manager for most of our time there, should be cloned!... More
