I stayed only two nights in the paradise that is Wanaka and was more than happy to have stayed in the Wanaka Hotel, which is literally a stone's throw from the lakefront, restaurants and bars, with the supermarket and everything else that I needed only a short walk away.
Great value for money, with everything that I needed, plus a great view from my room (see my photos). With slightly warmer weather, there is a nice lawn to relax on to play with the kids, relax with a picnic and wine, or take a 1 minute walk down to the water and enjoy the amazing view (see my photos).
There's lots of parking out the back and they have storage facilities for bikes, skis, laundry and even a guest kitchen if you want to do your own cooking!
The staff were super friendly and happy to give advice, as they're all locals and seem to know everyone and everything that is on offer. The on-site Mexican restaurant (Amigos I think) is meant to be excellent and they're renovating their on-site cafe at present too, which will be a handy addition.
I didn't see any gym and didn't order room service, so can't comment on those.
I would definitely stay there again with the family. It's an excellent 3 star hotel!
