Stayed here on the way from Queenstown to Fox Glacier. Staff polite and helpful. Hotel has a heated swimming and hot tubs which is a great plus if you want to relax from driving around the South Island. Wanaka is much quieter than Queenstown, but there are a few walks we unfortunately did not have time to try out. A...

Loved being away for the weekend. A very quiet hotel for us. A very comfortable bed and very friendly staff. We did not have assess to sky tv in the part we were staying. The pools and spas were a great treat and being able to order straight to your hot pool or pool chairs was a great bonus. Loved...

I can only review the room as we did not try the bistro. The menu we saw was very ordinary and so we dined in town. The room was clean if a little dated. The king size bed was a king mattress on two single bases and the join between the bases could be felt through the mattress. There was...

The rooms were well laid out, but a bit old, with signs of obvious wear. The apartment looked out towards the mountains behind the lake, but there was a large scale road construction being done directly behind the resort, meaning a lot of noise during the day. The resort itself seemed to be undergoing renovations, and once completed (and the...

Ouside of town center, very convenient to reach just along the main road. The gym and pool were fantastic. Don't take the rooms near to the main traffic road - very noisy! Breakfast was above average.

Took my mum here as a surprise she is visiting from Scotland. This is a little gem that goes unnoticed. I have visited wanaka twice before and never notice it but won't ever miss it again. The pool area is like a tropical island and great on a hot day. The waitress was lovely and gave amazing customer service which...

Great place with great facilities including free wifi. Rooms were clean, well maintained, including a full kitchen (with dishwasher!) and clothes washer and dryer. This came in really handy as we were midway though our travels. We got a lot cleaned! We didn't use the pool but it looked very nice. Easy access to the town centre with a car....

We stayed for 2 nights here as a family of 5. Slightly out of the lakeside area. Great pool and hot tubs. Good facilities for self catering. Unfortunately I had to do a some work but the wifi was terrible. A first enquiry wasn't well handled. On check out I mentioned it, not being one to usually complain - the...
