We booked Te Wanaka Lodge because of good Tripadvisor reviews. We expected there to be a good atmosphere but the place seemed soulless. We never got into conversation with anyone other than the staff. It may be that in the Ski season the place comes alive but for us it just didn't.
The room was OK but nothing special. The balcony was very small but you could just see the mountain above the adjoining rooftops.
Overall a little disappointing. We stayed in much nicer places during our 14 night trip to the South Island
