“Lake Wanaka”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Throughout my lone travels North and South, staying in hotels and b&b s there is no doubt that b&b s come out on top.
I have yet to stay in a bad one and Wanaka Springs Lodge is no exception.
John and Glynis are fantastic hosts providing excellent service and breakfast.
Our evening get together was like a party, great company and lots of experiences to share of NZ.
Ok so my room was not quiet as luxurious and large as some but more than adequate.
Wanaka is a great little town staying here will not disappoint.

We stayed for two nights as part of our honeymoon trip to New Zealand. The owners, John and Glynis, have only recently taken over but are doing an excellent job. They had lots of recommendations for restaurants (we tried two and loved them both!) and local trips, and made every effort to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Inviting all the guests to pre-dinner drinks and (delicious homemade) nibbles out in the garden each evening was a very nice touch. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, with a big bathroom. The location is excellent - just a short walk to the town centre and the lake front. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Wanaka Springs to others.

We stayed for 1 night in January but arrived before our room was ready (they were having a 100% turnover the day we arrived). John allowed me to use his own bathroom to freshen up and change in which was an indication of how friendly and helpful he and Glynis are. The room was spacious and very well appointed, with a lovely bathroom and nice view of the gardens. The evening happy hour with the other guests was a real treat, nice wine and nibbles and a very friendly atmosphere. We were leaving early the following morning,but they were happy to have breakfast set out for us to grab something before we headed out.

Searched for superior accommodation for myself & elderly parents for three nights last week, back in November. Came across Wanaka Springs Lodge and their apartment offering and booked well in advance (and paid deposit).

On arrival (2.30pm), there was no one at home to greet us and as instructed I phoned the number posted on the door but did not receive any reply. Two hours later we returned to the lodge for checkin and were greeted by John who directed us to an apartment block next door. He briefly explained the facilities and said to contact him whenever if we needed anything.

The apartment was great, just what we needed and very well equipped apart from one essential item. However we did feel that we had been slightly mislead by the advertising in that we were totally isolated from the main lodge (apart from an offer of the use of the hot tub which was stated in the apartment's compendium). It would have been nice to talk to the other guests and share travel stories.

By the second morning we were running out of the essential item and one of the group went over to the lodge to ask for some additional toilet paper (there was only one half used on the holder when we arrived and no spare). We were informed that we needed to go to the supermarket to buy some more but when we pointed out that we were staying for three nights and we were a party of three, a couple of spare rolls were reluctantly handed over. Hard to think that this basic essential should be so over looked when the rest of the apartment was well stocked (oven roast bags, tinfoil, glad wrap, kitchen roll etc).

It would have been great to give feedback to John on our departure, but after having rang the bell twice no one appeared so we just had to leave the key on the counter.

So I can't comment about the wine or the nibbles the lodge guests were clearly enjoying each night on the terrace (in full view of our balcony), or the home baking, or the standard of the lodge rooms. But I can say that the apartment 210 was modern, well equipped and adequate for our needs. However if your reason for stay is for the apartment accommodation, you may be better off approaching the Best Western Belvedere directly for a better deal.

We would certainly stay here again, but will speak direct to Belvedere..

We stayed here for one night in November 2013. The room was fine overlooking the lovely gardens. We really enjoyed meeting the other guests for wine and nibbles and as it was a lovely evening this took place outside. The lodge is well located and just a short walk into town. Would recommend.

John and Glynis have taken over in last month from previous owners and having been well inducted are delivering an excellent experience.

Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every one. Nice touch to offer guests drinks and nibbles at 1800h. Lovely bright spacious rooms, all with access to balcony and deck. Excellent bed and bedroom service. Hot tub in garden to sooth aching limbs after walks.

Lovely, fresh breakfast prepared and served by owners. Perhaps should take the opportunity to refresh range of what us on offer. Love the fruit and freshly prepared muesli. They took opportunity to advise on activities and despite being new to the area are well versed in what is on offer. Went out of way to provide packed lunch. Accurate weather info each morning.

Very open to feedback on their service and also other restaurants and activity. Made us feel most welcome and would recommend it most strongly.

Didn't know what to expect and we were blown away by the experience. Incredibly comfortable room, wine and cheese reception, yummy breakfast, and the best part were the hosts (new owners). Having in essence free laundry was perfect as this was the half way mark on the trip. Highly recommend this charming b&b. and loved Wanaka
