“Great hotel except if you have difficulty sleeping”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We had two nights at the hotel with a lovely room overlooking the lake. Breakfast and lunch were great. Unfortunately the outside hallway lights come through into the main bedroom. There are curtains but they ineffective in stopping the light shining into the bedroom. I considered removing the bulb that was burning all night (planet-unfriendly) but would have needed a screw driver. It was quiet though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where there is no light shining into the bedroom all night.

Hi Jamie

Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences at Edgewater, especially with regard to our lakefront location and dining options.

I am sorry however that the light was so obtrusive for you. I am assuming you only stayed one night? Our team would have been happy to work with you to solve this if you had stayed on.

Kind regards
Trish

We really enjoyed staying here. We were given a very spacious room with a panoramic view over the lakeshore.The view is wonderful. Very pleasant staff. Just outside town, but within walking distance, following the path along the shore of the lake.

We spent five nights here and would recommend it to others. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a great relaxing stay by the lake. I'd recommend getting one of the apartments if you have children for some extra space. There's a lovely cafe on the lake which is great for a coffee or a beer in the sun

We had a very relaxing stay at this wonderfully appointed hotel. The property fronts directly onto the Lake with wonderful grounds and park benches to take in. You would probably want a car if heading into town, however it is only a 20min walk along the lake front.

For the cycling enthusiasts, the mountain bikes which were included in our rate (and also offered for hire) were of a very high standard.

Sounds like you had one of our special packages, with mountain bike hire included. There are some great trails around Edgewater and throughout Wanaka.

We welcome you back to continue your exploration.

We stayed for 3 nights and this was one of the best places we stayed in NZ.

Initially planned for 2 nights but then extended it.

The service was very good including check in,the restaurant and cafe.

Rooms were clean. Plenty of room including kitchen.

Beautiful view over lawn and Lake Wanaka. Very restful. Enjoyed friendly service in cafe while having a beer and looking at lake and mountains.

Would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: We got a lakeside room and it was a beautiful view of Lake Wanaka

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment here, clean, roomy with a lounge, kitchenette with mod cons. Our unit is on the ground floor facing the lake. With the well manicured lawn just right outside our doorstep, our little boys get to step out and run on the lawn, with very picturesque view of the mountain and the Wanaka lake. Even though it was a short drive to the shops it was still very convenient.
Overall a very relaxing place for people who want to spend quiet quality time with family. IMHO a much better place to destress compared to the very busy Queenstown. Queenstown is still beautiful and action packed but Wanaka is really the place to rest and relax.

Room Tip: Choose ground floor units you can just walk right out along the lake.
