If you are looking for a more economical option than The Moorings, then they have the answer right next door.
We stayed at the Durry Hills villas, beside The Moorings, which are offered at a more competitive price. The location is just as sensational and the accommodation is great but at a greatly reduced rate. Our accommodation was 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, so ideal for families or couples travelling together. It is at the "value" end of accommodation; it is clean, has everything you could possible want and is really well located and appointed.
There is SKY TV (with the movie channel) but no DVD or games, shower in the ensuite and other add ons and atmosphere you may expect to find at more expensive accommodation. If you are okay with this, then I would definitely recommend Durry Hills as a place to hunker down in Wanaka. Bookings are made through The Moorings (which is right next door). It's an easy 2 minute stroll into the shops and is nice and quiet.
The staff at The Moorings are exceptional. We left early on account of the weather and they were entirely understanding. As well as this, we were inadvertantly overcharged for our stay and they very quickly redressed the issue. Nothing is too much of a problem for them so as well as staying somewhere very reasonably priced you are also getting the service of a top notch establishment.
Stay here if you are looking for something reasonably priced, comfortable and well located and set out without the additional extras you may expect in a quality more expensive luxury accommodation.
