We walked in off the street and the reception staff immediately showed us a room. Staff here are really lovely and friendly!

This is a relatively new place, probably only a year old or so I would guess. Rooms are very good standard. Big double bed, comfortable sofa and living area, big TV. Good standard of kitchen area and facilities. Good clean modern bathroom, with a good shower.

Fab views of lake - which is literally just across the road and very central to all the easteries.

Would definately recommend anyone to stay here!

Stayed: November 2006

Stayed 3-nights while in Wanaka to attend a wedding. Clean, comfortable rooms with everything you could ask for, full kitchen facilities (if you want to use), 2-bedroom apartments are well laid out with one bedroom being located upstairs with an ensuite bathroom attatched. Nice outdoor patio on each apartment with table and 6-chairs. Nothing was to much trouble for the hosts, they were happy to store some of our luggage for 2 days before we checked in, then upon check-out they let us keep the room until 1.00pm. A mistake was made with the checkout account (which I should have checked) and upon my return to my home country an email was answered promptly and the matter was immediatley cleared up. Highly recommend this hotel, walking distance to everything and on the shores of a lake that must be one of the most scenic places on the planet.
Stay there, you can't go wrong.
