“Great lodge with fantastic views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2011

We stayed there 2 nights - on 31st Dec and 1st of Jan - paying 180$ per night plus 50$ bank holiday surcharge. We traveled in 3 - we got a huge lodge - able to accommodate 7 if not 8 people - there were 3 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 1 bathroom with shower, huge parlour with terrace and views overlooking the mountains, big well equipped kitchen and dining room. We found this to be our best accommodation during our 3 week visit in NZ. We enjoyed our stay in Wanaka and we would have liked to extend our stay in Bayview Motel when we come to NZ next time.

Excellent value for 2 bedroom, self contained accommodation on the edge of Wanaka. Unit was a bit old but very comfortable and warm and cosy with a fireplace. Staff were great - very helpful and friendly. An added treat was the fire being set ready to light every evening when we returned from the snow.

Excellent value for money and the fastest free wi-fi in our whole holiday. Lots of extras including meal vouchers for the local Mexican restaurant. Staff were friendly and the outlook from our 1 bedroom unit was spectacular. Our unit appeared to have been recently refurbished which added to the comfort. Heating was sufficient with additional portable heaters stored in the wardrobe.

we stayed here 3 nights over Christmas and there was everything we wanted - quite quiet, space inside and outside, TV with DVDs to borrow, spa, and best of all lots of helpful and knowledgeable advice about walks and activities - so we avoided a potentially risky walk in rain but were advised to do a different one, and did a wonderful river safari by jet boat in good weather.

We were very pleased with our stay at the Bayview Motel...in fact, it was one of the best accommodations we had stayed at during our 10 day holiday on the South Island. We stayed at some luxurious/expensive accommodations during our stay and figured "what the heck let's try this one." Looks can be deceiving as we were more than happy with our small 2 bedroom flat. It is not posh at all, but rather definitely comfortable with furnishings and decor that reminded me of going to grandma's. The wireless internet left a bit to be desired as it didn't reach within our unit, but overall we found the experience to be fantastic. Great views of the mountains and the young, but experienced staff were extremely polite, helpful, and friendly. Located a short distance out of town (15-20 min walk at a decent pace) it is peaceful and provides all the comforts of home.

The customer service was exceptional and I really enjoyed the spa pool at the end of a long day exploring. Would highly recommend this motel which is ideal for couples and families. The staff gave us a ride into town for dinner and we got a meal voucher when we booked our accommodation. Perfect setting to unwind - peaceful and relaxing with great views.

Cant really fault the unit we stayed in, clean & tidy throughout, everything worked, reception friendly enough.
But the buildings are crying out for maintenance, blistering or faded paintwork, weeds here and there, the shrubs need a serious trim, obscuring picture window views of Lake Wanaka, some footpaths are fully obscured by shrubs.
But the Grounds are great, plenty of room for kids to run around, well away from road traffic noise, great views.
