My partner and I arrived in Wanaka and were informed there was a room booked for us at this hotel. Not knowing what to expect we were very pleasantly surprised to see our 1-bedroom room.

We stayed for two nights while in wanaka, we booked a studio room and got a great deal. All the rooms look to have balconies or patios that look out on lovely lawns/garden and the mountains in the distance. The pool and hot tubs are excellent. It is a few Km's from town centre.
