What a fun place to stay! We have never stayed anywhere quite like Te Wanaka Lodge before. As aviation enthusiasts we were in Wanaka for the Warbirds Airshow over Easter. A total must see for anyone who is interested in WW2 Aircraft. Te Wanaka was recommended to us by friends from Perth and we only got in because they gave up their booking due to another OS trip. We didn't know anyone, but Andy & Graeme were so welcoming, we felt like we'd known them for years. Over the 4 days of our stay we met so many nice people who also shared our passion! While I can't say that the rooms are the biggest I've ever stayed in, they were spotlessly clean and very cosy. We actually just used them to sleep in, as the rest of the time we were out and about or spending time chatting to other guests in one of the lounges! I guess if you want to be totally private don't stay here, but if you like to have your own nice room and meet other people then Te Wanaka is a delightfully fun place to stay. We've booked again for the airshow in 2008!
