We had a wonderful weekend at the Edgewater. Check in was efficient and friendly, room superb (were very fortunate to get an upgrade), bar and dining room staff were excellent and checkout was also very good and quick. We cannot fault the Edgewater and it is a favourite place of ours to stay at. Never fails to make our time... More

Very comfortable room, quiet, choice of pillows, bathroom well equipped. Stayed 2 nights so did not spend much time at the Resort - up early and back late. Some distance from the town centre so had to drive. There is a restaurant at the Resort but did not try the food here. Definitely a comfortable stay.

Amazing Location on Lake Wanaka? Check. Friendly local Staff? Check. Really great food? Check. Close to all the activities and adventures around Wanaka? Check. Yup - this place really had it all. I stayed for a very brief two nights in a Suite at Edgewater Resort. Really wish I could have stayed longer! The suite was really large and seemed... More

Enjoyed two nights staying at Edgewater - what a delightful place. Magic setting and amazing views. Very comfortable well appointed rooms with plenty of space. Very clean and everything was first class. Excellent staff from the cleaners, waiters and receptionist - all very obliging and welcoming. I intend to go back and enjoy a relaxing few days.

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
