We stayed one night in the Minaret (1 bedroom, En-suite studio with king bed). The hosts, Craig and Michelle, were very friendly, hospitable and helpful. Upon arrival, Craig greeted us and realised that he had seen us earlier at Mt Iron on his run (our walk ;). He then showed us to our room and made sure our dinner plans were sorted out.
We really liked the room especially with the little kitchenette that was well stocked with everything you need for small meals or snacks. Michelle even made some shortbread for us and left it in our room. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom amenities provided were thoughtful and elegant, not unlike what you get in 4-star hotels.
We also enjoyed the continental breakfast that Michelle prepared and we appreciated how she helped us sort out our upcoming plans by helping us check the weather in different areas, calling the skydiving company and hotels etc.
Location-wise this is outside of the main Wanaka lake area but we didn't mind as we had a car, and the lodge is set in a beautiful area. I would highly recommend this place!More
