Was enticed by the water slide, found out on arrival that the pool was closed during the winter months so it didnt start out well. However the room was large, and comfortable. Cardrona and queenstown is a short drive away and the the town centre of wanaka is within walking distance (2 km)
There was only a microwave and kettle with no kitchenette or sink, so it was a little inconvenient, though there was a BBQ grill near the room which was very easy to use.
The Staff was friendly (pretty much everyone is friendly in NZ) too.
There was however no view of the beautiful lake wanaka and no free WIFI (cost a ridiculous $6/hr or something) !
TL;DR Stay if you don't mind not having WIFI/stove
