We stayed here as part of our two week tour of the South Island. The website was completely misleading. It is a relatively new resort with no character. Our room was extremely small with views!!! The views were of the construction site next door. We approached reception about the possibility of moving to another room this was declined as the resort was apparently fully booked. Not sure where all the people were but in our block their was only one other car in the parking lot the entire duration of our stay and restaurant/pool area empty. This was the most expensive accommodation of our stay and the most disappointing. It is a 10 minute drive from town which is a pain with a small child and if you wanted to go out for dinner and have a few drinks.
Wanaka is such a gorgeous place with lots of great accommodation. We were sad to have had this experience.
