What a gem – really nice resort type hotel right on the shore of Lake Wanaka-great views. Rooms well furnished, ours had a lake view, king sized and single bed. Really nice looking restaurant & bar area. Internet computer available in reception. About 30 mins comfortable walk along the lakeside into the town of Wanaka. Continental breakfast @ $15 each. Cost was GB£89, good value, I thought.

Cannot recommend this resort highly enough. We took a package which included full breakfast and three course a la carte dinner in the restaurant. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was very comfortable, with a beautiful corner window seat to enjoy the magnificent view of the lake. Ducks waddling up to our door was an added bonus! The food was excellent, the venue superb. We thought it was outstanding value for $NZ275 and wish we had booked more than just one night.

My wife and I loved this resort. Excellent rooms with fantastic view of the lake and of the mountains. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent. Absolutely pleased.

We stayed 3 nights at the Edgewater Resort in Wanaka for our honeymoon in Feb 2005.

At arrival we got a free upgrade to a One Bedroom suite.
The suite was excellent, very big with very comfortable and nice furniture, the bedroom was also good and very convienent.
The bathroom was very big and included a bathtube, a separate shower and a washing machine. One minor problem: Using the shower for just 5 mins will set the whole bathroom under water (even you close the door)...

At checkin we get a notice that said that hot water supply was restricted. I quite wonder for something like this, because we never faced something like this in any hotel before. However, even we both mostly will take a very very long hot shower, we never run out of hot water.

The view from our suite was over the lake toward the town of Wanaka.

Overall, the location, the enviroment and the complete accomodation was excellent with nothing to complain. The staff also was very nice.

The hotel does not provide any in-room internet, but you can use the coin operated internet PC at the reception.

We tried to use the hotel restaurant, but find out is was totally booked for several days and prebooking is required. We instead used the room service, which was absolutly excellent, good quantity and quality and the price still cheaper then the prices in the restaurant.

Overall an excellent experience and we can highly recommend this hotel.

When I arrived at the apartment room, I was fascinated by how big & well-kept the room is.... I could overlook the Lake Wanaka from the window & the vew was magnificent.... A very quiet & relax place to stay in for those looking for serenity.....

The restaurant itself provides very good food with excellent service & nice ambience.....

The only drawback might be the location which is suitated 20 - 25mins of walking distance from the small town area.....

This resort was excellent. We were just staying one night, but liked it so much that we stayed for two! They upgraded us to a suite for free (we were there in June). It was very clean, included a washer/dryer, had a welcome gift of candy and a coupon for a free drink at the bar. The staff was very nice and helpful and the views were amazing. My husband enjoyed putting on the putting green. The decor was modern and the location was great. We walked along the lake. Go hiking up Mt. Iron for a spectacular view! It was a good value for the money. I believe we paid around $75 US.

Excellent accomodations here--stayed in a one bedroom suite. Quite comfortable, nicely furnished. View of the lake. Within walking distance from the nice little town. Many groups stay here so dining room can get very crowded for breakfast, which was just average. Bar menu was good though for lunch.
