“Best place to stay”
Reviewed January 2, 2006

Such a wonderful place to stay and relax. Rooms are beautifully done, breakfast is delicious around a large table with other guests. Lodge has spacious sitting rooms, hot tub, patios etc. Hosts are so friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great for tourists or just for a getaway.

Absolutely gorgeous place to spend some time (2 weeks or more at least to see just some of it!). It's got everything: volcanoes, glaciers, alps, fiords, lakes, waterfalls, penguins...and nice people and good wine. What more could you ask???

Lots of choices of where to stay. If you're in Wanaka--stay at the Te Wanaka Lodge. Only 13 rooms--but they take great care of you. Rooms, especially upstairs, are lovely, with high ceilings, flat-screen TVs (don't stay inside and watch TV), sitting rooms, honor bar. And they fix your breakfast any way you want. Very, very nice.

The Novotels have very nice accomodations. But you can stay for less. And backpackers have plenty of choices, too. Bring your hiking boots--YOU WILL NEED THEM.

Have fun. Visit New Zealand soon!

Stayed 1 night in upper level room March 2005. Nicely equipped, very clean and comfortable. Most attractive lounge areas where you can help yourself to a drink (honour system operates for payment). Very good breakfast in bright dining area. Staff were most helpful and friendly. Easy parking and good location, close to shops, restaurants and attractions (of which Wanaka has many). One of the very best places we found to stay in our 3 week trip around North and South islands. Highly recommended.
