One of the nicest rooms I've stayed in, Bed is upstairs. big living area downstairs. View out of main window and balcony can't be beat. And at a very reasonable rate. Has small kitchenette (microwave, fridge, sink, no stove). Very nice people. Parking right outside.

We arrived here in the late afternoon, tired after a long drive over from Hokitika and were really impressed by the friendliness of our hosts and the quality of the accommodation. We were in room no.1 on the ground floor which gave us great views from the balcony overlooking Lake Wanaka. We had hoped for an upper room but there...

I stayed there with my husband over Christmas and we could not picked a better spot to enjoy our stay. The room was welcoming, very comfortable and the view was amazing! I am not a good sleeper but the beds there were very comfortable. This is a great place to unwind! Yes, there was some slight issues with internet, but...

Booked in for one night, and tried to book in for another but had missed out. No wonder, this place is fantastic. Located only a 10min walk from town everything is within easy reach. We stayed in room #6 and were very happy. Well appointed room, clean, spacious, very comfortable bedding. Our balcony was shared but this was not a...

I paid for a night at this motel but didn't actually stay there. Two weeks before our arrival date I emailed the host to let her know we'd be arriving at 9 pm and I asked if there were any special instructions for a late check-in. She failed to mention in her reply that one of the major roads to...

Stayed for 2 nights and booked the motel mainly for the view and the location and we were not disappointed. The view is to die for - overlooking the sea on a sunny day is fantastic. Also - the location is within 10-15 minutes of walking into the town center - we spoke to another couple at a restaurant and...

if you staying in Wanaka, then this is the place to stay, the rooms are good and the view is unbelievable. tip go to the town for a drink then bring food back and use the gas barbecue and watch the sun go down over the mountaians.

Stayed one night in Wanaka while on business. The room was lovely and clean, bed was really comfortable and had a great night sleep. The view across the lake is fantastic. Made good use of the internet and the connection was good. Close to the shops, cafes and restaurants. Would stay again.

We had prepaid for two double rooms and when we arrived there was no record of our reservation at all....and only one room was available. The owner was very apologetic and arranged to get us rooms at a neighboring motel and made up the difference in price....so she handled the situation very professionally and promptly. The location/facility did look spectacular...

This is a difficult one to rate, because the view across the lake is so good, but it is the view that makes this place so special. If you take away the views, this motel is of average quality when considering furniture and fittings. The real downside is the wifi. We stayed in room one - a studio room, and...

Hi Caslandon, "Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Lakeview. We agree that the views from the rooms across the lake to the Southern Alps are spectacular and that is what sets us apart from other motels in Wanaka. We apologise again for the Wi-Fi problems that you had. As explained at the time a new...
