“Decent older hotel in the center of town”
Reviewed 3 March 2005

The hotel seemed to be a historical hotel as the decor suggested something from another era. While the hotel has seen better days, everything in the room was in good shape and clean and comfortable. I got a quiet room with a queen and twin bed, TV, phone, and it had a partial view of Lake Wanaka. It was right in town so all eating establishements were within easy walking distance. The only quibble I would have was with the small bathroom: separate taps for hot and cold water in the sink, no sink counter for toiletries, shower and sink water pressure a bit low, and the shower grout was brown. It represented an excellent value compared to most of the other lodging in Wanaka, though.
