Reviewed May 17, 2013

These apartments are amazing. The location is awesome the apartment was clean, well equiped, and very warm plus spacious. The bonus was a well equiped laundry. The staff were very accomodating in directing us to places to eat. The Cow has the best pizza's. Highly recommended. Also I left my battery charger I got a call whilst in Arrowtown to say they had found it and would post it to me. It was waiting when we got home.

Clean, comfortable place in Wanaka. Close walking distance to the scenic wonderful small town of Wanaka, one of our favorite places. Has a small balcony overlooking a creek. Large unit, comfortable bed, kitchen facilities, and washer and dryer for getting caught up on laundry which was very convenient. Great views to mountains and the night we had arrived it snowed overnight and woke up to beautiful fresh snow capped mountains. Wanaka is a wonderful place! This was a very good place but a bit pricey but had very good conveniences (kitchen & laundry appliances).

The location is just about perfect. No view of the lake but magnificent views of the mountains. The motel is located in the main street, one block from the main shopping area. it's great for walking into town and there is no traffic noise. Being built for the view means they don't get much sun, which would be a nice bonus in winter. The units are well equipped with a washing machine and dish washer and plus a decent TV. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The Motel is not cheap but if you are willing to pay the price you will enjoy your stay.I must say it is a pity to have to pay for internet access. It's time this was provided as part of the service.

The Location was great....but all the other places we stayed (which were much cheaper) at.. there was no charge for wi-fi or for local phone calls...all three light shades in the living room were full of flies and it hadnt been vacumed in a while....so for me and for the money spent I was not impressed

Room Tip: Check out the settlers cottages in Arrowtown...it was awesome!!!

In our 4 week tour of NZ this was one of the nicest motels we stayed at. Excellent location just outside town but easy to walk in to all the shops and restaurants. Lovely large apartments with super views to the mountains and a family of ducks wandering round near the very pretty creek that runs through the property. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wish we had stayed longer it was so nice.

Only stayed here one night but what a superb location. Great room overlooking the brook and great facilities. Washing and drying in the room was a great help! Will definitely be on our list for a longer stay next time we are in NZ.

We recently stayed at the clearbrook motel (2a & a 2yo) as part of a South Island trip.

We were impressed on arrival with the motel and the lady on reception seemed fairly friendly and relatively helpful. The room was lovely - a great size and a gorgeous view. It was well appointed and also had a washing machine which was a welcome addition after 4 or 5 days travelling with a toddler.

The motel is less than 2 minutes walk to the top of the Main Street of Wanaka - fabulous location! The town is just gorgeous, by far our favourite of the 4 places we stayed on the trip (lake tekapo being one). It has great shops, supermarket & a lovely foreshore with lots of coffee shops and eateries. We only stayed 1 night but wished we'd stayed longer.

Our son also loved feeding bread to the resident ducks from our balcony.

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay. My comment about the inflexibility comes from the attitude of the gentleman on the front desk when I asked if they might have a spare airer we could borrow - his response wasn't particularly friendly and instead, rather short & dismissive. I understand he may not have had one, but it was his reaction that most perturbed me. We experienced a similar response when we asked if we might check out slightly later to work in with our toddlers feeds.

I also felt the room was a fair bit more expensive than other places we'd stayed but again this may have something to do with the destination (and not knowing enough about nz, I can't comment).

All in all, we enjoyed our stay and with a slightly more friendly attitude, would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms have access to a grassed area where the ducks are but there is a brook runnin...
