“Great views...”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

Very nice motel in an excellent location in Wanaka.

The view from our room on the first floor was superb and the room itself was of a very good standard.

The general manager Ann was very helpful and the motel has all the on site facilities you would expect.

A good place to stay in Wanaka

There is not a lot more that I can add. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable with view of the lake, parking was just outside the room. We should have stayed longer here. Oh and it was good value for money too.
Would recommend this motel. It was s short walk down hill into the town and the staff were able to recommend good local restaurants.

I'd really give it a 4.5, but I'm not allowed to give half stars! My parents, children and I stayed here on our NZ tour and my parents remember it as one of their absolute favorites, even though we only stayed one night. It was easy to find, the apartment was very nice (if a little cramped for five of us, but that wasn't the room's fault), and it's right next to shops, restaurants, and the lake. Reception was very friendly, the grounds were very pretty (it was nice that my kids could run around), and the view was gorgeous!

Thank you for your positive review. We try our best to make your stay a pleasant one. Glad the kids enjoyed the space of the lawn to play. Our views are great without the high price tags closer to the lake, and only a few minutes to everything makes us guest friendly!
Thank you for choosing us to stay with.

We stayed here for a night during the Christmas season while on our way to Queenstown. The rooms are nicely done and well maintained with a fully featured kitchenette. The units are airy, spacious and well lit; the cosy balcony opens out to well manicured gardens and impressive views of Wanaka Lake and the mountains.
The motel is a mere 5 minutes' walk from town centre and hence easily accessible at all times.
Reception has been warm and helpful especially when there was a hiccup retrieving my reservation from the booking website.

Recommended!

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.
