Reviewed December 6, 2009

This place was excellent and I really enjoyed my time here. Although it is slightly pricier than some of the other places around it made up for it with its spectacular views of Wanaka. The place was comfortable and clean and the owners were lovely and helpful. Worth the money would recommend it.

Stayed: July 2009, traveled as a couple

We had a downstairs room and spent a lot of time in the room admiring the incredible views of the lake and mountains in the background.....so beautiful. Downstairs rooms have like a bay window with shelf and chairs like a breakfast bar. Spent all our time there, reading, having an 'eat in' dinner, and breakfast in the morning. Was great watching the boats on the lake etc. Owners very friendly and helpful. Only a 5 minute walk into town. Room was clean and comfortable, with kitchenette and reasonable size bathroom. Great value for money....the views are amazing.

probably the best hotel of our NZ trip. we had room 5 (if i remember correctly) which has two floors, one with the kitchen, living room, bathroom, toilet, and the second floor (more like a loft) for the large bed. The views are incredible over the bay and we had a wonderful dinner on the deck overlooking Wanaka. View goes great together with a bottle of NZ wine! Hospitality was also great and value was great at 105 per night. Internet and parking were free.

feels more like you've been given the keys to a gorgeous holiday home rather than a motel as it has a real quiet private feel to it. It was great to have the free wireless and the kitchenette - it has everything you need. A very cosy and convenient place to stay with stunning views. i would definitely recommend it.
