Stayed for one night in March. A nice clean room with easy access and parking outside the units. Very quiet where we stayed down the back. Nice friendly host who made us feel welcome. Recommend to all visitors that want reasonably priced accommodation in Wanaka.

An easy 5 minute stroll to Wanaka town centre plus well equipped room makes this a great place to stay. Really helpful staff who advised us of local attractions plus the most scenic route to our next destination in Queenstown which we otherwise would have missed. Great advice on eating places too plus a discount voucher, well used.

Booked for one night and wish we'd booked more. Modern and very comfortable refurbished room with full kitchen, comfy bed and excellent choice on TV. Host and hostess were friendly, helpful and managed to find us more accommodation nearby as Wanaka was pretty packed and most places were booked out! Apart from an issue with the wifi, which was being...

Bit of a modernisation could help but I suspect the price would reflect that. Clean tidy and friendly service all went well. Play area, sand pit for the young ones very near town, shops. Could not help feel shower and toilets though would benefit from a spruce up.

We spent two nights at the motel. The owner, Derek is incredibly enthusiastic and helpful, and gave us lots of suggestions of activities, walks and places to eat. We were a bit surprised about the location, being right on a busy roundabout, but the rooms are quiet. The kitchen was tidy and well equipped, even if it did look like...
