We spent a week here when staying in Wanaka and it was quite nice. My partner and I had a studio apartment which was very spacious and included kitchenette facilities and a king size bed. The bathroom was also quite nice and the rooms were very quiet both during the day and at night. The on-site restaurant facilities were average to good although I'm under the impression that they are undergoing some renovations.
The downsides would be the lack of wifi - to connect was outrageously expensive and could only be used by one device at a time. I understand that the Wifi in the area isn't the best but why I can access free wifi in Bali but not New Zealand is beyond my comprehension. There was also a need for more parking as if you came back later at night it was almost impossible to find a park.
Our room didn't have a view but some of the 2 bedroom apartments did and those views were quite impressive. There was a pool for kids and a gym for those that way inclined. All the staff at reception were very friendly and willing to help with any queries that we had. Breakfast was decent but IMO slightly overpriced.
