“Clean, comfortable and helpful staff”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We booked into Edgewater Motel last minute through the I-site in Queenstown and were very pleased with our decision. The staff at Edgewater were very helpful and approachable. The room was a good size and very clean, and we had a very comfortable nights sleep. We would definitely recommend Edgewater Motel to others.

We received lovely service at Edgewater, who were very accommodating to our needs. Nice, clean accommodation with comfy beds and a great location just walking distance to the shops and right on the waters edge!

Cean & comfortable, staff very helpful with information about the area, good position for access to activities in the area. Beautiful part of New Zealand, especially the lake. Tours to Milford Sound & glow worm caves excellent, well worth the visit.

Totally enjoyed our stay here. When we arrived, we had a tour scheduled the next day for Milford Sound. the road was closed, and was going to be for several days due to an avalanche. The owner had already checked for an alternate tour to Doubtful Sound, which was available. We I said the approval, he made all the arrangements. Likewise, the next day our planned tour to the Glow worm cave was cancelled due to flooding, he made the arrangements for us to receive credit. What a big help. He also gave helpful suggestions on where to eat. The rooms were clean, WiFi worked well. Comfortable beds, good room coffee. Laundry on site was handy. Extremely friendly staff, had a good conversation about the America's Cup, wish the Kiwis had won (even with us being Yanks). When we return to finally get to Milford, we will stay here.

Comfortable and clean rooms of a reasonable size with Wi- Fi & laundry on site.THE MOOSE a great pub just down the road recommended by the staff top place to eat. Great location not flash but good place to stay . Would stay there again.

Well equipped 4 share room and lots of visitor information in the reception area. It's very close to everything and nice and clean and quiet. Quite dated decor but the beds were very comfy. Slight issue with having to go through the bedroom to the bathroom. The other beds are in the lounge/kitchen so if someone needs to leave early they'll wake up those people. These things weren't a problem for us though. Very friendly staff who got us a good deal on a Milford trip and booked it for us. I would certainly recommend this.

Very easy and hassle free to book and check in. Staff friendly and helpful.

Room basic but met all out requirements - apart from needing to go through master bedroom to access the bathroom....

Quiet and comfortable although I suspect the lack of insulation would tell in colder times.

Would definitely recommend staying here if you are comfortable with older yet acceptable rooms. Clean, tidy and lacked for nothing.
