We had one of the apartments on the ground floor, which meant we could walk to the little spring at the bottom of the garden, which is natural and really lovely to have just outside! The room was clean and comfortable. Very big bathroom, the floor was a bit tacky, like a leisure centre, but i think it was a disabled access room so that explained the gripy lino floor.
Really peaceful setting with good kitchen facilities.
It actually overlooks some mountains so has a lovely view.
Wanaka lake is beautiful, it's a glacial lake but i was brave and took a dip! (nobody else went in,, but it was 28 celcius so it had to be done!) Wanaka has mountains the other side of the lake so we spent our whole day just chilling by the lake, as nice as being on a beach!

After much deliberation, I chose to stay at Clearbrook Motel for a family Snowboarding holiday in August – what a fantastic choice! We booked a 2 bdrm apartment for our family of four which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is always a priority for me and Clearbrook didn’t disappoint with the apartments located a short walk to town centre. Traveling with young children can often be very cumbersome however the staff at Clearbrook did a great job alleviating a lot of the stress by providing port a cots, high chairs and dvd players. In addition, they took service to another level by researching child friendly restaurants and placing bookings on our behalf. The Town is fantastic and the Mountains amazing – I cannot recommend Wanaka and Clearbrook Motel enough for a fantastic snowboarding holiday!

We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a loft as the main bedroom. The views across to the snow capped mountains from the bed was sensational but I suppose not unusual in South Island NZ.
The spa worked a treat and soothed a weary travellers tired body. we could have stayed in Wanaka for much longer, its a lovely spot, small but up market with views on all horizons.

Room Tip: They all pretty good

I'd read the reviews here on TA before booking Clearbrook, and we were not disappointed.

Not only is the location ideal, a mere minutes walk to town, the lakefront, and a grocery store, but this motel somehow still manages to be quiet and serene. The babbling brook is a bonus - whether enjoyed from the patio with a glass of wine while watching the sun go down, or lulling one to sleep at night.

The proprietors are incredibly friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed visiting with Frank, the sleek black stowaway cat, who likes to curl up on the chair next to the heater in the office, even though he doesn't officially live there!

We spent two nights in #8, an end studio unit on the upper floor - it was perfect for our needs - spacious, well laid out, nicely equipped for self-catering, spotless and comfortable. The washer and dryer were a nice addition and much needed a week into our trip.

Lovely place.

The major point of difference is the environment. Quiet, set back from the road, lovely views of mountains and a lovely brook cascading through the garden outside. Lovely place to stay. Annoying that the outside light shines through into the room at night.

Room Tip: Top floor for views - bottom floor for access to the lovely brook. I don't think it matters much...
