Reviewed March 10, 2013

I have had the pleasure of staying at Lake Wanaka Lodge several times over the last 8 years and it was a pleasant surprise to discover the new Japanese owners have worked hard to improve the experience of staying here. This place is a bed and breakfast, in a quiet street , but near the shopping area. The beds are some of the most comfortable you will experience, and as I said the service from Katsumi and his staff was first class.

Room Tip: The big rooms upstairs are not much more money for a lot more space, and will be slightly quieter be...

A short walk from the centre of Wanaka (where we swam in the lake 21C I would guess) this is a pleasant motel with some nice extra facilities.
A very good breakfast was included in the rate.
A very nice feature was a large common room; a combination library and lounge with comfortable chairs and a balcony with a nice view.
Very friendly and helpful greeting at reception.

4 of us stayed here in a shared room with 2 king beds. There was plenty of room. Nice and close to town.
Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and delicious.
Great value for money given the peak season.

The lodge js managed by the owner and his family. They are really helpful, friendly and alwayS try to personalize your stay. The hotel is neat, the library and TV room is nice and it is. Agood place for games after a long day out. The rooms are pretty clean, organized and always the owners leave cookies and sweets for your amusement. The room temperaures were always perfect.

The Hotel was in a convenient location, easy to find. The room was smallish, but very comfortable. The bed was very easy to sleep well in. The bathroom was spotless, with a good shower with lots of hot water. The whole hotel was extremely warm on a very cold weekend. Breakfast was excellent, with hot food freshly-made to order and beautifully presented. We would stay in this hotel again.
