“very quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

we stayed there for 3 nights... the suite was very big and well equipped.
the restaurant is good... staff is polite and helpful...

only problem i found was they didnt have a elevator to go on the 1st floor, so it becomes tiresome with the luggage... other than that everything was good.

they have a huge lakefront.... so everybody gets their own space.

i am impressed and will definitely go back.

Room Tip: get a room on the ground floor... you will enjoy the lush green lawn and very easy access to lakefro...

Booked at the last minute for 2 adults and 3 kids, the 2 roomed apartment was spacious, clean and well serviced.

It doesn’t have a pool, kids were a bit down on this, but tennis, kayaks and location made up for it.

Friendly staff, only small gripe the BBQ;s are a bit small !

Liked Wanaka, liked the resort, will stay again

I've stayed at a suite at the Edgewater many times over the last four years. It boasts delightful views of the lake and the property has a surreal serenity about it that makes me keep coming back. It has a huge lawn fronting the lake and walks and jogs along the lakeside, to the nearby vineyard, boating area or into town are lovely and the path is right in front of the hotel!

This is a place to chill so persons seeking to rush around to tourist traps are better served staying somewhere else.

If its too cool to lounge on the lawn and the well positioned benches, then a favorite spot of mine is in the corner of the room where a full glass panel enables the appreciation of the view in the privacy of the room.

The staff are friendly and helpful and I've come to know several by name. Service is great. It's not the cheapest place to stay but

The resort is on the lake front, about 10 mins walk from the town. Our room was away from the lobby and was spacious and quiet. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed the open fire place. We enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and we felt welcomed.

With high expectations following trip advisor reviews and web site etc we were bitterly disappointed. So much so, we checked out after our first night. Most rooms appear to have facility to be twin with neighbouring room VIA a locked door that isn't sound proofed in any way. We could hear the next rooms conversation as though they were standing next to us. We complained and got moved to a room without this facility. Overall it was okay but not worth the hype. From our experience, there are some much nicer, smaller, cheaper b&b's.

We apologise for the inconvenience of the noise from the adjoining room. We are glad that our front office team acted immediately to find you another room so that you would not be disturbed later in the evening.

We have passed your concerns on to our Maintenance Team and asked them to check the seals of the dual doors of the original room you were staying in, as this is not a common occurrence, but we thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Best wishes,

The hotel is located in the best area of Wanaka, being right on the lakefront and only a short walk via the walkway to town,in fact we left the car in the car park most of the time.Our apartment was very tidy,warm and comfortable. We had a great view of the lake and mountains from the cosy corner window and balcony. The reception service was friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful meal in the restaraunt and room service the following night. Both were deliciuos. We made use of both the spa and sauna.
Thanks for a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
