“Modern suite with stunning view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

stay at Chalet #6 with stunning view of the lake and mountain from the living room, the entire suite is newly renovated with modern and fresh feeling. A complete set of new cooking equipment and dishes. All 3 bedroom are very small, but beds are comfortable and clean. The owner provides excellent customer services. Location is superb where the lake, supermarket, and town centre are all within walking distance. Wished we could have stayed longer, a 5 star recommendation!

On the Plus side: we had chalet #6 which has corner windows and a great view onto the lake. The suite has a great modern and happy energy. Living room is spacious. Our host was very friendly. Free internet (although a little spotty at times). Clean. Insect screens in bathroom. Nice heater. Well stocked kitchen (kitchen supplies).

On the Minus side: the bedroom was a little cramped and there are no drawers to put your clothes.

Room Tip: Chalet #6 is a corner chalet with lots of windows and excellent view.

After a long drive from the Franz Joseph we were glad to check into the Wanaka View Motel on October 31st. The owner, Bret, checked us in and generously upgraded us to the one bedroom with a fantastic view of the lake and mountains. The kitchen was well appointed and the layout was spacious. We walked five minutes to town and had a great meal at the New Wanaka Speight's Ale House. The massive fireplace was stoked and we had a lovely meal here. The service was friendly and the food suited us to a tee. The next day we walked around the lake front and we wished that we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Book the front room with the view - it's well worth the upgrade!!!

A very good motel with fantastic view over Lake Wanaka, close to the Town centre and very very nice management. We stayed in chalet 6 and it was a really nice, comfortable, clean and well-equipped. We enjoyed our stay here.

Great motel located a 5 minute walk into town. We stayed in Chalet 4 which was at the front of the property and therefore had lake and mountain view which were terrific. The room itself was reasonable in size with a full kitchen and spacious lounge. Bedroom was a bit on the small side but when all you're doing is sleeping in there, size shouldn't matter (it didn't bother us!). The owners were very friendly and the property was in great condition. Wanaka itself is a fantastic town and I would definitely recommend staying a few nights here as there is plenty to fill in the days with. Thanks guys!

Room Tip: ask for one of the rooms at the front of the property, as they have the best views.
