“Fantastic value, great hosts and yummy breakfast!”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

We were very happy with our stay here. The hosts were very pleasant on arrival, took us up to our room and advised of all the amenties. The room itself was very clean and well presented.

Free wi-fi in our room was great, some other places we stayed charged for wi-fi. The common room looked very nice with lots of activities and had a great view, unfortunately we didn't have enough time to make use of it.

Breakfast (included) was fantastic, the eggs were beautifully presented, not to mention yummy and the hosts were again eager to ensure we were happy with everything.

The location is away from the lake but it's still a walkable distance and you do get nice lake and mountain views.

Overall, fantastic value and a very pleasant stay.

The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice but needed the bacon & eggs option as the continental breakfast selection wasnt as plentiful as all other places we have stayed (been in NZ 5 weeks now).
The wifi connection is atrocious; Interminably slow, flaky & unreliable. The computer in the guest lounge isn't any better.
On a plus point the guest lounge is nice & spacious.

I stayed here with my husband for 3 nights - what a shame I was very sick with the flu! This meant I was very well acquainted with the rooms. Very hard mattress meant I used some cushions from the large and inviting communal lounge to sleep on. the owner allowed this which was nice. Nice rooms with tv and little balcony.

Clean, functional accommodation for an overnight stay. Immaculately clean and friendly service. Free wi-fi although very intermittent and poor signal. Good quality continental breakfast and cooked options.

We stayed here for three nights in November 2011. The rooms are not large, but were clean and well maintained. The common room on the second floor is great, with both a computer for internet access, and lots of guides and books. We would spend time in the common room every evening. If the weather is good, pick up a to-go dinner and some wine and sit on the balcony with a view of Lake Wanaka. Breakfast was great (heavy if you are a light breakfast eater), but the staff will cook eggs/bacon/toast any way you want it, and are very anxious to ensure you get what you want.

Room Tip: It was cloudy/rainy our three days there, so not sure if any particular rooms would have a "bes...

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.
