Good clean comfortable room. A little dated but ideal for my needs. Great location walking distance to most shops. Went for cheapest option. Rooms with a view are better quality with view over lake. Just needed somewhere to sleep and have a coffee

Good view of Lake Wanaka from the room. Room very clean and tidy. Was disappointed that the Bullock restaurant was closed due to no chefs available to be employed. Have dined there on previous visits to the Wanaka hotel.

This hotel is situated in a wonderful place in New Zealand, at Wanaka Lake. The hotel is only average. The rooms are only ok. The net curtains were dirty and the drapes were in a poor state of repair. There is free carparking for hotel guests.
