“Great View and Good Location”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

The Lakeview Motel in Wanaka was an ideal location for our three nights in town. It is far enough out of the centre to by quiet but local enough to walk if you want. The accommodation was good and everything you need was there. We used the BBQ one night and had a wonderful meal with a stunning view as the vista changed as night fell. Our hosts were there if needed so looked after us without fuss. The views from the Motel fit the name as they were stunning and ever changing. We would stay there again as it fully suited our needs.

Room Tip: All rooms have a good view and not being on a main road none have noise problems we liked being on t...

We stayed at Lake View Motel for a night as a stopover from Mt Cook to Queenstown.
The hotel is located within 10 minutes’ walk from the main town centre, and you can find everything from Petrol kiosk to grocery store at general ease.
Check-in was friendly, and were assigned to one of the units in the lower deck. All units face the lake, even though the décor may be slightly old, but they are generally clean and well kept.
We went for one of the recommended walking trail in the morning, and were delighted when they agreed to extend our check-out time slightly.
Generally, it was comfortable and we did not face any problems during our stay.
We will recommend Lake View to travellers who are budget conscious, and do not mind the older furnishings.

Room Tip: Rooms at the upper deck will probably have a better view. Lower Deck parking can be quite a challeng...

I recently spent 2 weeks driving across the south island with a friend and booked the Lakeview Motel in Wanaka based on tripadvisor reviews. We stayed here for 1 night between Milford Sound and Fox Glacier.

The main asset of Lakeview is the location and the view. The unit is pretty basic but comfortable and cheap. The view of Lake Wanaka is fantastic and the location is superb! Literally 5 minute walking to the commercial area of the lake with plenty of restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

The unit was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was good. Leanne the owner was very welcoming and arranged activities for us. There is parking available and a nice cosy coffee shop (relishes) pretty close. Free wifi was available and strong.

This is place is certainly value for money and we enjoyed our night in Wanaka. However, we wish we could have spent more time there since it is a lovely town.

I certainly recommend it to other travelers.
