“Very comfortable room - elegant breakfast”
Reviewed December 9, 2011

I stayed at this property on 18 Nov 2011. The location is extremely quiet, an easy 10 minute walk from the lake and centre of Wanaka. Breakfast included the most elegantly presented bacon and eggs I've ever encountered. Highly recommended.

On the edge of the town centre, this lodge has a good view over the town to the lake. There is a large residents lounge upstairs that maximises this benefit. Our room was adequately furnished and not luxurious, but everything worked and was sufficiently comfortable for our overnight stay. The owner is most hospitable and welcoming, and in the morning the entire staff could not have been more anxious to ensure that we had everything that we wished for at breakfast. It's about 10 minutes to walk down to the lake and the very middle of town. If you're driving, make sure you have a good map of exactly where the lodge is.

We checked in on 29 Jul ans stayed for 2 days. Our comments is " Please expect a home feel stay and an extreamly good breakfast.

We were greated by the owner with a warm welcome and he led us to our room, which is cosy and nice. This lodge has a guest living room, it is so comfortable that we feel a sleep on the sofa.

Mention about breakfast, it's simple but you can actually see they prepare with passion. Even as simple as sunrise egg, you can actually notice they put some herb as decoration.

To sum it all up, on my next visit, this will definitely the place that i would stay.

Thank you to Katsumi and his team - they were helpful and friendly at all times.

The rooms are very comfortable and the lounge is spacious (we enjoyed a game of monopoly).

The breakfast is excellent, including cereal, fruit, and eggs and bacon.

Location also good - a short walk down to the town centre and the lake-front.

We're having a lovely stay at Lake Wanaka Lodge. It's within walking distance of the lake, shops and restaurants. Katsumi (manager) is charming and helpful, the staff pleasant and efficient, the room quiet, clean and comfortable, with ample supplies of in-room coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cookies (and did I mention the great breakfast?). It's an exceptional place. You won't be disappointed.

We are so glad we chose the Lake Wanaka Lodge as our base for exploring Wanaka. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. It's in a quiet location, situated at the end of a cul-de-sac and easy 5 mins walk in to the town. Lovely views of the bay from the lounge and free wifi which was very useful. There is a complimentary breakfast too, with fresh fruit, toast, croissants, cereals and bacon and eggs cooked fresh and exactly to your your liking. Service was excellent too, with very friendly staff - all in all, our best choice of accommodation so far.

Loved this place a lot!! Katsumi and his team are very nice and made us feel more at home than away from home. It is incredibly clean, quiet, and the shared lounge room gave us and the kids a lot of space.
