Fabulous location and layout presentation of grounds etc a great complex but it is sailing on its Laurels of days gone by, I have stayed many times over the years and watched the fine dining restaurant disappear , I have seen the rooms freshened many times but to be a 4 star complex today it needs to way further up...

Great location, nice facilities, beautiful grounds on the lakeside. Wanaka is a lively but mature resort town close to Treble Cone ski area, good wineries, fabulous bush walks, beautiful mountain scenery, and easy drive to Queenstown and other attractions.

My family and I had a pleasant two night stay at Edgewater. Our room was located on the second floor with an impressive view. The room itself is very spacious. The kitchen is equipped with the kitchen utensils. The bathroom is not so big but well stocked and spotless. There is also a washing machine in the bathroom. Good accommodation.

Over all re up to standard in New Zealand however, the front reception is still lack of service mind when you consider that this is a luxury asccomodetion in Wanaka. Washing machine worked horrible. The kitchen ware used in the hotel quality are below standard.

The staff could not be more friendly, helpful and pleasant. The views are to die for. It is a brisk 30m walk to town or a $12 cab fare. I agree with the reviewer who said that the walls are paper thin, and the facilities too few and simple for this to be the 4 🌟 it is listed as.... More

We recently stayed (in a downstairs suite) here for one night...and choose this hotel due to its stunning location. The rooms have been recently renovated however if you're after a peaceful nights sleep I wouldn't recommend this hotel. The walls are paper thin, the floors make it sound as if there's elephants sleeping above you. So while the facelift to... More

We spent one night at this hotel. There was free parking right next to our accommodation, which was great. Our king room was comfortable with a wonderful view of the lake. The room had all the standard amenities, and heating in both the room and bathroom (which we needed in the middle of winter). It was an easy walk to... More

Dear Dee286 It certainly can be very 'brisk' in winter for spending too long outside. It sounds like you enjoyed your stay and did keep warm at the hotel. Kind regards Trish More

We stayed at the Edgewater for only one night. The room was recently renovated and beautifully furnished, and the view from the balcony was stunning. For a king bed room it was spacious and very clean with a generous bathroom and good heating. Main criticisms were issues with connecting to the wifi and limited choices in terms of TV channels...

Kia Ora It is always good to learn from our guests about their stay. It sounds like you stayed in a studio/hotel rooms which had tea and coffee making but no cooking facilities. Our one bedroom suite and two bedroom apartment do have kitchenettes. Our location, on the edge of Lake Wanaka and the lake-front walk way is generally enjoyed... More
