Stayed across the road from the Lake Hawea Hotel in a holiday house with mine plus another family. On the last evening we thought we would venture across the road to the Lake Hawea Hotel for dinner as a treat.... WOW! It was beautiful, it ticks all the boxes... Decor, ambience, friendliness, cost and what a view. If we had...

A very pleasant stay with wonderful lake and snow capped mountain views. The Hotel has a restaurant with open fires creating a cosy atmosphere. We had crab and fish linguine and John Dory which were delicious. However the dessert was disappointing as it was advertised as trio of chocolate but we were informed they had run out of chocolate mousse...

Always wanted to go here. Lived up and exceeded my expectations. Just had a light lunch and enjoyed the view. Then after riding from Wanaka I decided to ask for the possibility of the courtesy bus driving me back. They don't operate during the day but when I said I was 6 months pregnant, the duty manager used his own...

What a hidden gem. We booked a family room and delivered exactly what we wanted. Only negative is that there needs to be more comfy chairs downstairs. Great meals, poached eggs not quite right first breakfast but once lovely lady (presume owner) found right pot lol perfect eggs next day. Wonderful friendly staff would definitely stay again.

We stayed for three nights in a family unit because my mother toured with us, and our stay cost significantly more than we anticipated (see later for details). Because the stairs to the top floor were difficult for a senior citizen, my wife and I slept above, leaving my mom to sleep in the "main" bedroom. The beds were comfortable,...

Forget about everything else. The views from your room are fantastic. To be able to watch the sunrise from your room will blow you away. The rooms were great apart from a tatty old green chair in the corner. Please bin it. The staff at breakfast were very helpful, prepared to cook anything we wanted

Be sure not to go to the Stag's Head attached to this hotel. We bought 2 meals with drinks. Spent $40. Used the wifi to check our emails after eating whilst having our drinks.
