“Good nights rest at short notice”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

At short notice booked and arrived late for the night.
The Receptionist was friendly and welcoming. She had rung me on my cell to make sure I was going to be on time
The room was tidy and warm
The bed was comfortable.
The view out over town was very good.

We stayed here for a week and loved it. It wasn't pricey at all and contained everything we needed including full kitchenette and appliances, cosy beds and a tv...we stayed in room 5 which was up top and we had an amazing view over the town of Wanaka and it's amazing surrounding scenery of mountains and Lake Wanaka...two single beds were located in the bedroom and a Queen in the main room which could be closed off with a sliding door(not soundproof though just in case you wanted some 'quiet' time)...There is a shared dry room accessed by a key located by the entry to the motel so that all the wet stinky ski gear isn't cluttering the room. Wanaka town is a mere 2-5 minute walk...The best restaurants in town are moments away on 'Post Office Lane'. New World Grocery Store is in town for any groceries that are needed. The lady at reception is lovely. The final night we had some noisy neighbours who stayed up til midnight but the rest of the week it was nice and quiet...

Room Tip: The rooms up top have better views. Room 5 is a beauty.

We stayed 3 nights in Wanaka and the Wanaka Heights Motel was great. The rooms contained cooking facilities if you wanted to cook for yourselves and they have a great view over the lake.

The ski bus picks you up from just outside the motel so it's super convenient.

This motel is nice, clean, spacious, and close to the lake. The room was large – a bedroom with two single beds, a bathroom, a full kitchen with table, and a living room with a sofa, a coffee table and a double bed – and it had a lovely back yard area. The motel is up the hill from the lake and the center of town, and it is a lovely view as the sun sets and the lights come on. It is a little bit of a walk up a hill, but totally manageable for anyone without health problems. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice motel at a reasonable rate.

The one bedroom we had was nice with an excellent view of Mountains, good beds and a very clean bathroom. Very close to town and Lake but quiet...the perfect spot. Wanaka itself is a great place to be and if I visit again I will stay at wanaka Heights.

We stayed only two nights and had a great time. We had booked a two bedroom apartment but had a three bedroom, but the last bedroom was only separeted with a with foldaway door. For us this did not matter as we did not use the fifth bed. We have two very young children and had a cot and highchair in our room, which was great. The rooms were all clean and the staff were very friendly. We used the laundry facilities on site and hung it up in the garden to dry. The motel is a short walk away from the lakefront and it was easy to walk with a pushchair there. Can only recommend the place.

We had a good start when the welcome was so warm. New Zealanders have got it just right. The room we had was lovely ~ crisp clean fresh linen and a spotlessly clean bathroom. Very close to town and Lake but away from all the hustle ~ a perfect spot. Wanaka itself is a great place to be and if I visit again I will stay at wanaka Heights.
