We booked though the local I-site and got a 1 bed apartment which was on special offer - $160. At this price it was excellent value. Clean, quiet, spacious, well equipped kitchenette. Seating just outside the door, with plenty of grass and trees, leading down to the edge of the lake. They will also provide breakfast at £15/head. A winery about 10 mins walk along the lakefront, worth climbing up to just for the views.

We visited as part of a tour of New Zealand for a couple of nights.
The hotel is just outside town a good 20m walk away along the lakeside. We were in a one bedroom suite facing lawns leading to the lakeside, shrubberies and a duckpond. The apartment had a bedroom with king size bed, lounge, dining area, kitchen, and bathroom with washer/drier.
We had an included dinner on arrival which was very disappointing. There was a choice of fish or slow roasted belly pork. Because of an allergy, we had to vave the pork which was dry, chewy and tasteless. (I would have apologised to my guests if I had my food had turned out so badly at home). Vegetables were described as "crispy" which in practice meant nearly raw. Dessert was fruit salad and ice cream.
We heard from some of our group that the buffet breakfast was the most disappointing of the tour in their view.
Because of the food, we had breakfast in Wanaka the next morning and shopped for dinner to cook in the suite's kitchen, and breakfast supplies for the early start when we left.
Overall the suite was excellent and we would wholeheartedly recommend a stay here.

Room Tip: Ground floor suites open straight out onto the lawns.

Stayed here for 3 nights from 28th feb onwards. We got it pretty cheap as a secret deal from a hotel booking website. The one bedroom suite was spacious enough for our family of 4. We got the ground floor unit(#108) and it had fantastic views of the lake and the mountains. The living room opens to the wonderfully maintained lake front. The kitchen was well equipped.
Now the drawbacks: The fold-out sofa though big was pretty bad as an extra bed. The unit looked a bit old. The washer/dryer was small and noisy. The location is a bit far from the town center but takes only few minutes by car.

Room Tip: Ground floor units open to very well manicured lawns.

Dear hpatra

We're pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay with us - for the most part.

We do endeavor to keep our units up-to-date and regularly embark on room refurbishments, when possible. I am sorry you found the sofa bed to be somewhat uncomfortable.

Yes it is quick and easy to jump into your car to visit the heart of Wanaka. Alternatively there is a 15 minute walk around the lakefront to the main part of Wanaka.

Kind regards
Trish

Thanks for sharing your experiences at Edgewater. Sounds like our two bedroom apartment was exactly what you needed on your holiday.

You are right - we are on the edge of Wanaka. Many guests, such as yourself have cars however the alternative is we have a glorious lake-edge stroll into town which takes about 15 minutes.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards
Trish

Although it is a bit far from the main part of the town (by walking) the location and views make everything completely worth it.
The room we got was exception as it faced the lake and had a very nice living room with big windows.
Unfortunately no breakfast is offered, but that can certainly be made up by the accessibility of the lake itself. You can walk right out of your room and straight to the lake! There is a small trail that goes around the lake that you can easily find, as well as a small vineyard that offers wine tasting.
I definitely recommend this place! My stay was short (1 day, 1 night)...wished it was longer!

Dear Arielle

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about Edgewater and it sounds like you particularly enjoyed our lakefront location. It is blissful.

With reference to breakfast, our Sargoods restaurant offers an extensive buffet breakfast daily.

It would be great to have you back again for longer. You may wish to explore the Wanaka region on our mountain bikes and the lake on our kayaks (both available for rent from Edgewater).

Kind regards
Trish
