I booked this hotel for my birthday gateway in Wanaka after reading good reviews online. Tried my luck making reservation using Trivago and got redirected to Booking.com, my husband and I are happy travellers. Very good price with stunning lake view hotel room, we couldn't ask for more. The room was clean and interior was very simple with lots of... More

Our room at Edgewater was just fine, actually very good, but for us it was the location and the wonderful views across Lake Wanaka that made our two night stay really lovely. The room was comfortable although a bit too warm when we arrived but opening the sliding door to the balcony and the bathroom window had that quickly sorted.... More

Stayed in room 712. Room is spacious, well-kept, and has a modern decor. There are plenty of heating options through-out, as well as inside the bathroom. The room would be ideal for someone that was staying here prior to a wedding and was getting pre-wedding photos; there is a L-shaped corner bench with seat-to-ceiling windows, and modern furniture. The ground-level... More

Having stayed at a luxury hotel in Queenstown for the first 4 nights of our NZ holiday, we had lower expectations for this property but were quietly surprised. We had requested a lake view room which we received. The property is slightly out of town, but we liked this as it gave us an opportunity to get some exercise in... More

Beautiful hotel by the lake. Rooms were a bit old but property was great overall. There is a nice bike path along the lake. We received a great deal for a lake view room.Would stay here again when we visit wanaka again

Only stayed for 2 nights here and didn't check out much of the facilities. Had a lakeside room which had awesome views from the back deck. Room was excellent and service was also excellent. Would definitely stay here again if returning to Wanaka.

We stayed for three nights at the Edgewater as part of a flying trip. The staff were friendly and the rooms were nice and spacious. The view of Lake Wanaka from the room was amazing every morning. We had breakfast there as part of our stay and each morning was greeted with a friendly welcome and a nice selection of... More

We were on a hosted visit with Wanaka tourism and couldn't have experienced a more friendly welcome. The rooms were so comfortable and view spectacular. Very clean. Lovely kiwi breakfasts. Convenient with a short lakeside stroll to bars and restaurants.
