    We were amazed by the location near the lake with clean air, nice ambience in the Hotel Restaurant, with good food! I should have reserved 2 or 3 nights there. We booked 3 rooms all of us enjoyed it. Can swim, water activities and more.

    Wanaka is the most beautiful place to visit

    Wanaka is the most beautiful place to visit The views of the lake and surrounding area are really stunning. It’s seemed a really peaceful place with just enough to do. Plenty of eating out places to choose from and many activities and places to visit. We will definitely be back.

    A wholesome town just outside of Queenstown.

    A wholesome town just outside of Queenstown. I could've stayed here weeks. It was a great location to be based at for Roy's Peak Summit, more hiking and days spent by the lake. Bonus activity was a dinner and movie night at Cinema Paradiso. A really lovely town with a very live-able atmosphere.

    Wanaka itself is a lovely spot.

    Wanaka itself is a lovely spot. It was lovely without being too much of a tourist trap. The art gallery I visited was very good, and the two local restaurants also good and reasonably priced. The staff at the Thai restaurant were especially friendly and helpful. I wish I had stayed long enough to drive out to a few places from Wanaka.

    Very Friendly Hosts that came round to welcome us. the property is a self contained annexe to the house and private with its own patio and BBQ. felt very homely after travelling round NZ staying in motor inns and hotels. property had good nformation about things to do in wanaka and books on NZ. it had a washing machine so we were able to do our laundry (at no extra cost). It had all the facilities you would want. was so good we wanted to stay for a few more days, but unfortunately it was already booked.

    The apartment was amazing. Very homely. very quiet location. Loved the proximity to the Cardrona Hotel (2 min walk), we had more than 1 exceptional meal there. The apartment had everything you could possibly want and then even more. excellent for self catering. The layout was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We went into Wanaka most days for activities which is only a 15 minute drive and the drive is very easy. Plenty to see and do in the area. Thanks.

    Decent place in the town centre, good price & value but the room could’ve done with some TLC. The heater was broken and there was a space heater but the room was still pretty chilly. Front desk lady was very friendly. Wifi was also pretty good, which was a nice bonus considering all the other places we’ve stayed had pretty shitty wifi. I’d stay here again if I was on a budget but I’d stay elsewhere if you could afford a bit more :)

    Amazing location, can not be beaten. Wānaka is gorgeous and you can walk to everything from this hotel. My daughter loves the lake and playground which is less than a 2 min walk. The Mexican place was really nice next door. The laundry was excellent we did all our washing easily. The communal kitchen was great for extra bowls and forks etc. the green space outside was excellent for our 4 year old.

    The standard of this hotel was much higher than we expected. The room was immaculate, well furnished and spacious. There was plenty of parking and only a 5 minutes drive from the lake front and the famous tree. The guy in reception was friendly and helpful.

    Lovely hotel in a perfect position. Loved our room and its autumnal outlook over the golden poplars to the lake. Delightful walk into town. We would certainly stay here next time we're in Wanaka (this was our second visit). Enjoyed dinner on our last evening.

    The rural setting was beautiful. Waking up to SILENCE was FABULOUS !! Unlike staying in a motel or hotel .... there was no-one else to make noise or interrupt your stay .... THAT, made it all wonderful. We would stay again and recommend it to family and friends.

    The apartment is fully equipped with everything we need. The kitchen cooking utensils are so complete. The view is awesome. Our family like it so much. Not to mention the location is just by the river side, near to all the eating places.

    Great stay in Wanaka! The apartment was very private, behind main house, with well-equipped kitchen, laundry, and clean bedroom + bathroom. Felt cozy. Location within walking distance of the Wanaka tree and downtown restaurants.
