We stopped here for one night while travelling north and it proved to be omfortable and better equipped than many more expensive places. Our only criticism was it is a bit of a way out if you wanted to go into town by foot as we did.

Located in a residential area, only a couple of minutes drive from the town centre, this Motel was ideal. We had plenty of space, with a large bedroom, lounge/diner/kitchen, small balcony and bathroom. Felt very homely and all clean and tidy. Good value.

If you're looking out over the lake from town, the hotel is up the hill to your right. Not too far but definitely not walking distance from town. Room was HUGE and lots of space. The space to drive around the buildings was tight and I don't think a camper would have fit.

Comfortable bed, large room, great wifi. Clean and good facilities. Loved the retro feel, stainless steel shower basin, white oblong tiles. This motel was very good value. It is in a residential area near Lakeside Drive, so a walk to town.

Booked a 1 bedroom apartment in jan. The hotel is not far from the town centre and is easy to get to from the highway. The staff was friendly and gave us all the info we needed to get around town. Good value for money!

Booked double room which had own patio and convenient parking. Easy 20 minute walk into town. Took bus to Gibbston Valley Concert. Bus picked up at bottom of crescent, less than 5 minute walk, but bus dropped us at the motel on return.

Located in a quiet neighbourhood which can be hard to find. The reception was friendly, with good info about the town. The room was clean and we found it spacious for a family of four. The provision of plunger coffee was appreciated. Also make sure you get your laundry in early as there is a curfew. There are no shops...

There were three of us and we stayed one night and we were happy with our accommodation. The rooms were clean, comfortable and we had a lovely view of the mountain from the kitchen window. A nice way to eat breakfast! It was very quiet so we slept well and only a short drive into town. We had our own...

The Manuka Crescent Motel was value for money, it had everything you could possibly need and was close the everything. We arrived around 5.30pm and the staff were absolutely lovely, they had put the heating on for us and made sure the room had everything it needed. We had twin beds and a sitting area, very spacious for a motel...

This was a perfect place to stay for 2 nights while we enjoyed the lovely Lake Wanaka. The motel was really well equipped and even had a guest laundry that was free!!! It was an easy walk to town. Would highly recommend to people traveling as a family.
