“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Stayed here in July when it was chilly but the heating was up to scratch. Plenty of room, nice kitchen space and facilities, nice decor and great view from room. Comfy beds and pillows. Host friendly and helpful. Wanka itself is lovely and I liked being at the top of the main street, close to all the facilities but not amongst them.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

Had a 3 night stay at the Wanaka Heights Motel and thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked a one bedroom apartment which had ample space for 2 people. Had a full kitchen which included an oven cooker and microwave, handy when you like to self cater. The New world supermarket is only about a 5 min walk away. Very clean and comfortable with lovely views of the township of Wanaka and the lake. Ann the manager was very friendly and we had some great chats. The only issue was with the wifi which tended to drop out on a regular basis, but this is a problem throughout wanka.

Thank you for your lovely review, happy you enjoyed your stay. As it was the shoulder season that you stayed rates were much lower than high season, we are so much more affordable than comparable properties here in Wanaka with lake views. It is an on-going problem here in Wanaka with wi-fi, if we win the Gigatown competition that is currently running in NZ this will no longer be a problem.
Hope to see you both again some time.

We stopped in here for a night on our trip around the south island.
Room was comfy, with ensuite and kitchen facilities.
Lovely view of the lake from all the windows.
It was a pity it was only for the one night.

Thank you for your review for your stay. We have a nice spot with a beautiful view.
It's lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay. Wanaka is a such a beautiful spot.
I would also like to respond to your review about value, we are one of the cheapest motels in Wanaka with a view. Our rates are set on our outgoings and with commercial costings in NZ being extremely high it is always a struggle, if we charged less we would go out of business. Also being under the Queenstown Lakes District Council and rated as a tourist destination everything costs us more than say Geraldine, Fairlie or Timaru.
Hopefully you will return to Wanaka again.

Kind Regards
Ann

Clean and comfortable motel with a great view run by the affable and charming Ann, a deracinated Aussie. Liked it so much we booked a second night. Ann was very helpful with local information, particularly which eateries to favour and which to avoid. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony clutching a gin and tonic as the sun set over Lake Wanaka. The only reservation is that there is quite significant traffic noise as vehicles haul up the hill past the hotel - apparently, this is due to a previous owner not bothering with double glazing which the current owner acknowledges and intends to rectify. That said, I'd still book in if ever travelling to Wanaka again.

Hi Barry,
Many thanks for your lovely review, we do try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Yes we are looking at double glazing the units properly as they were done previously but 'on the cheap' so to speak.
Look forward to seeing you again sometime.
Kind Regards
Ann

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.
