“Great deal, great place”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We had a 3 night special deal and it was amazing. The room had a lounge, full kitchen, separate bedroom and was very clean and comfortable. The location is slightly out of the main town area, but not too far. The grounds and views are amazing. We would go back there anytime.

We were early and our room wasn't ready so we were upgraded to a lovely unit. Ate in on our 1 night stay and had a great meal. It's about a 3 to 4 minute drive out of Wanaka township. Very friendly and welcoming staff.

I had the pleasure of staying here for a week of R and R. There was everything I could have wanted and more. There is room service and now there is a day spa in the resort. The facilities were extremely spacious and clean. I just cannot say enough about it. There is also tennis for those so inclined and a spa pool. The cooking facilities in the unit were more than ample. One thing I have to mention to potential travellers and it is important...the water pressure in the showers will blow you away.

Hi Karen

Sounds like you had a perfect week with us. Pleased we played a part in your relaxing experience.

Our day spa is very new at Edgewater and it is a glorious way to relax. Vanessa and her team have a variety of treatments and massages on offer. :-)

It isn't far for you to visit again, from Dunedin, so we hope to see you again in the future.

Regards
Trish

This hotel is located in beautiful grounds on Lake Wanaka. The accommodation was high quality with lots of space and modern facilities. The staff here really impressed with a customer oriented service culture being clearly evident. The town centre is about a 15 min walk away but the setting makes it all worthwhile.

We arrived at this hotel after a really long journey from the locations and it was a welcome relief. The rooms are well appointed, the bathrooms spacious, and a fantastic view of the lake (in certain parts).

My only complaint is that the walls are paper thin (which is not helped by shared doors in-between certain rooms) and we could hear a fairly loud party in the room next-door for most of the night. To the hotel's credit, we called the desk and told them about the party, and they helped as much as they could. The other issue is that, due to some reason, the rooms don't have a very large hot water tank, so I ended up taking a cold shower after the two other people in my party took longer showers. This is a known problem with the hotel, and they tell you about it when you check it, but it still stinks.

Room Tip: Make sure and ask for a second floor room with a lake view!

Hi Kelly

We are pleased we were able to offer a haven for you after such a long journey.

I am sorry to hear of the disruption next door to your room, but pleased the reception staff assisted you with this.

Indeed, each guest room is fitted with its own hot water cylinder and from time to time, it can get low if used extensively. But I am pleased you were alerted to this at check in.

I trust the rest of your time in New Zealand went well.

Regards
Trish

This a lovely hotel, as a family, the room was great. Separate bedroom for Adults ! . The location is wonderful, open your bedroom patio door with lawns running down to the waters edge.

All the staff from the groundsmen to the most excellent George, the Northern Concierge, based in the hotel lobby could not do enough for you. Cudos to the manager for creating a welcome, friendly, immaculate Hotel.
We even spoke to locals who go there for a drink & food!

Our sons have elected instead of a 2 week European vacation, to stay here.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences.

It is a bit of a plus that our suites and two-bedroom apartments give you the opportunity for your own bedroom.

George is such a delight. We are pleased to have him with us at Edgewater.

We look forward to welcoming your sons during their visit.

Thanks once again.

I along with my wife and toddler daughter stayed here for 3 nights. We stayed in a suite and are very happy with the decision to stay here. We arrived in wanaka without a booking, the I site had closed for the day. luckily they had a brochure available, I called about 10 motels and inspected a few. Edgewater gave me a deal on the suite which sounded attractive, we landed there without knowing what to expect.. of course we were pleasantly surprised. What awaited us was, Plenty of parking, fully equipped room, excellent heating, awesome view of the lake, rolling lawns with ducks prancing around. Only thing to be kept in mind is that you need to have transport to get to town centre. I fully recommend EdgewaterGave

Thanks for taking the time to share your observations about Edgewater.

We are well suited for families, as you discovered. I am sure our prancing ducks kept your toddler fascinated with their antics!

As you rightly point out, we are on the edge of Wanaka and a car is certainly an asset. Many guests also enjoy the lakefront walkway from the hotel to the heart of Wanaka, taking about 15 minutes to stroll.

Kind regards
Trish
