Very clean and comfortable, we had a wonderful, relaxing stay. Beautiful grounds, quiet and peaceful, amazing views. Sarah the manager was very helpful. Easy to find. We stayed in the Wakatipu suite. Only one bike was working would be great to have the other one fixed as some lovely places to cycle eg lake Hayes. Would definitely stay again.

The location and outlook of this apartment is what completely makes it. We were in the El Turosco apartment on the first floor and the french windows open onto the most spectacular view. We were really blessed with the most perfect weather. Apartment had everything we needed, only thing we missed was a bath as we had our baby with...

I was very impressed with Manata lodge. We found the lodge on Trip Advisor. Our family of myself, husband and 6 year old son stayed here for 5 nights and were upgraded to the Wakatipu suite. A two bedroom cottage that was warm, clean and comfortable. We loved how it was so peaceful and the outlook was stunning yet only...

Reading reviews on Trip Advisor and checking out the Manata Lodge website was the reason I chose Manata Lodge to celebrate a special occasion. However, things have changed there. There is a new Manager who lives off site. We were lucky that we just happened to phone ahead that we were running late and wouldn't be arriving until around 9.30pm....

Manata Lodge is my Heaven on Earth! I love the scenic views and close proximity to the airport and shopping. The rooms are always well prepared with a homey touch and kept clean! Phil is always available to offer advice on a fun activity or some Kiwi inside scoop knowledge.

We had 2 nights at Manata Lodge in May, we thought after an early start & flying into Queenstown it would be nice & relaxing, which it was. It is situated between Queenstown & Arrowtown & is very quiet. We were the only guests at the time, which was even better. We got a deal on wotif & breakfast was...

We were pleasantly surprised with every aspect of Manata Lodge, from the elegant decor, spacious accommodations, well-equipped kitchenette, Sky TV, luxurious bathroom and tub, beautiful views and grounds, and awesome location for a tennis game. Tennis rackets, bikes, books and DVDs were freely available. A generous selection of mueslis, yoghurt, fruits and plunger coffee etc was supplied. What an oasis...

My husband and I had booked into the Manata Lodge after hiking the 3-day Routeburn track. This was exactly what we needed. When we arrived, we found out that we had been upgraded to the Wakatipu suite, a gorgeous two-bedroom apartment. We had beautiful views of the Remarkables. The grounds were lovely and immaculately groomed. There was a small vineyard...

We spent a week at Manata Lodge and loved every minute. From our balcony, we could see Coronet Peak and the stunning Remarkables. The beautiful, manicured gardens made us feel like we were at a country retreat, far away from the cares of the world, rather than minutes away from Queenstown. The room was charmingly decorated and very well appointed...
