Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice stay at West Meadows in early March. Manager (Rainbow) was very helpful and allowed us to switch room type to suit our needs. Well appointed, modern room in nice quiet location. Guest laundry very useful. Easy to walk to town. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in the wheelchair friendly disability unit for two nights. Grab bar for the toilet is on the left and the grab bar is on the left side next to the fold down shower seat. It was perfect for our needs. Room also included a kitchenette with a small refrig and 2 burner hot plate. Owner offered us a late check out which we took advantage of. Hotel is located at the edge of town but everything is new and in excellent shape. With a vehicle, anyone will be fine here. It is quiet location and very clean and tidy. We would highly recommend staying here

WOW! West Meadows Motel has now set the bar for New Zealand Motels – I wish I could have stayed longer. I made my reservation on Agoda. The check-in/out process was easy and I appreciate that they allow for late check-ins. The office is open until 9 p.m. and if you arrive and no one is at the desk, they have a phone available that dials them directly. The office has several pamphlets for nearby activities and maps. The facility is newly built and is beautiful – everything is clean and new. There is an onsite laundry room if needed. The location feels a bit like the suburbs and it’s very quiet. The location isn’t too far from the main road and the golf course is around the corner. The mountain views are stunning when you walk out of your door. The attention to detail that went into designing and decorating the unit (decorative pillows, cup coasters, table and chairs, etc.) made it feel like home. Each unit also has a small table and chairs and/or plants outside. Definitely recommend adding this one to your list. The town is SUPER cute too – there are a lot of activities, restaurants, etc.

This was the most posh, beautifully decorated, luxurious motel we have ever stayed in. Everything was wonderful: the comfy big bed, the large, well-appointed kitchen, spacious living area, beautiful bathroom with heated towel racks. Parking was convenient and free, and it was an easy drive to the lake, to hiking trails, and the fun restaurants downtown. Amazing value, and I should also mention the excellent service.

This motel changed the definition of motels for me! Everything in the room was brand new, clean, and comfortable. The shower was strong, kitchenette fully appointed with dishwasher (!), towels, dishes/cookware, and all things for tea/coffee. Fresh milk provided at reception. It’s located on the outskirts of town, but Wanaka is small and with a car, you’re at the lake in 5 minutes. Definitely stay here for a relaxing time and good sleep.

I love almost everything about this motel. We have unit # 20. It's just a bit far from the parking area so if you have lots of heavy things it's just the transferring will be the challenge. 1st: The Size. spacious bathroom/shower area. Also, huge space for the living area, bedroom and kitchen space. 2nd: Cleanliness: Very nice and so clean -no issues with the tidiness and cleanliness- they cleaned and made our beds the next day and refill our needed supplies & stocks like body gels, shampoo. They emptied our trash bin. 3rd: Distance: It's a bit far form the central town if you will just walk but if you have car there's no issues. It's a quick drive. 4th:Comfortability: I like the bed! my most favorite!. very comfy and so soft, like I just wanna lay on the bed all day heheh We had a very good sleep. The only thing that maybe a discomfort was our room was near the road so at night time we can hear clearly the cars passing by. so if you are a light sleeper it might not be for you, you can choose a different unit that's far from the road. 5th: kitchen: I love cooking so I was able to try the kitchen, everything works that's good. If you could provide a pan and spatula/ turner for frying much better. Also, a big pot for soup. There are 2 or 3 pots but too small. If there's a rice cooker it will be more fantastic. The diswasher was a plus too. Lastly, a trash bin for recyclables pls. there's only 1 bin for general waste. Add: I love there's 2 TV-1 in living room and 1 in the room. I love it!!!-can connect your netflix and lots of sky channels to choose. Big mirrors! 1 big mirror in the bathroom and 1 body size mirror in the bedroom, it's so convenient. Overall, just minor issues and can easily resolve. We will definetely come back again. Highly recommend! Excellent!

From the moment we arrived into the immaculate carpark, it was clear that this was a top venue. After check-in, we found our room to be spotless and large enough for our international traveller-size baggage. A kitchenette within wasn’t used by our stay, but was there if needed. The bathroom was also spacious and immaculate. The best and most practical of any motel we have ever stayed in. We stayed 2 nights, and during our next day outing, the room was serviced with all those detailed touches. Highly recommended, with great mountain views from the bathroom and our balcony on the opposite side of the building.

The best motel ever? I think so! Don’t pay a fortune for a lake view in Wanaka when you will be out and about round it anyway. This quiet, comfortable, spotless and super welcoming motel is perfect for a short or longer stay. Loads of space, light, amenities and beautifully modern. Loved it.

Had a wonderful 5 day stay with my daughter at this spotlessly clean and very comfortable hotel/motel . We were in Wanaka for a wedding and we were so happy with our choice to stay here. It exceeded our expectations. Matt and Paul were wonderful hosts giving great recommendations and happy to drop us off into town as often as we needed to. This was great for us as we didn't have a car . We stayed in a 1 bed apartment with a comfy bed, great heating, clean kitchen and very nice bathroom with great heating in there too. We loved it and would definitely return in a heart beat. Thankyou Matt and Paul for your hospitality and congratulations on running a friendly and SPOTLESS establishment.

We stayed at the West Meadows Motel for just one night but I could happily have stayed much longer. The rooms feel new, clean, thoughtfully designed, aesthetically pleasing and extremely comfortable. Small touches such as heated towel rails and anti-fog bathroom mirrors, cute cushions, and the room being heated before our arrival. It is even more appealing than it seems in the pictures and presented great value for money, especially as it's only a 2-minute drive to town. We stayed in a top level king studio and had lovely views across to the mountains in the distance, and the upper carpark around the back meant we had easy access and didn't have to lug our bags up the stairs. Our hosts were warm, friendly and helpful, and did me a generous little favour in regards to amenities that put a huge smile on my face! Thank you for a wonderful stay - we hope to be back one day!
