My reason for choosing this motel was that I wanted a room with a view and I was not disappointed. We were very comfortable in our room which appeared to have been refurbished fairly recently. The young woman in reception was very pleasant. I did have a couple of reservations. We had to drive down a steep driveway to park....

After a long time on the road, the greatest pick-me-up would be a warm smile and a safe, comfortable stay. What was certainly a great surprise was its excellent location. Rested on a hill, the unsurpassed views to the lake was as its name suggested, lakeview. It is extremely refreshing to wake up to such a sight and very relaxing...

Couple of minutes walk down to shops and restaurants. Small 2...

Lovely view lovely room, this was a great spot to stay our room was clean and comfortable. Within walking distance to town, when we were there it was a little wet but a quick drive into town to some lovely restuarants. Would highly recommend especially for the price

This small motel was great for a few days visit to Wanaka. The view is stunning, town is within walking distance and its quiet at night. The best feature of our room was the bay window that has a bench and bar stools - a terrific place to have breakfast, a drink or just sit and watch the world go...

I stayed here for 6 nights and found our downstairs room extremely comfortable. It consisted of a queen size bed, settee, t/v, chairs and table/shelf overlooking lake. Large ensuite bathroom and sep. toilet. The room was tastefully decorated and serviced daily. There was a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, toaster, and kettle so only facilities for basic food preparation but we...

We arrived at the hotel during late evening after office closing. On our way from Franc Joseph we didn’t get network to make a call and inform reception about our late arrival, weather was bad that evening… heavy rainfall for 2-3hrs!! When we arrived at the hotel everything was shut, we didn’t know what to do thought lets go close...

We stayed for one night on our way from Franz Josef to Te Anau. We had a downstairs room with a view. Fantastic view of the lake and the town. Also just a short walk down to the lakeside. The receptionist was very friendly. The room was a bit dated but quite satisfactory. The walls were a little thin (re...

I pretty much totally agree with starlight19128 comments except for the restaurant Tate as we did not eat there. We did a lot of walking around the township & really loved it. I would also have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

We only stayed here one night, which was a shame as we thought it was quite charming. We had room 2 on the lower level, double bed, kitchen area and separate shower and toilet. Parking right outside, mind it's a bit tight though if you have a larger vehicle. The accommodation was very clean and well maintained, and the views...
