The ensuites are well appointed. Hosts were nice, professional and helpful with useful tips. Location is pretty near town and was not so noisy. We also enjoyed the home cooked breakfast which has a quite few choices. Overall, I would stay here again if I ever come back to Wanaka.

The lodge is about 15 min walk to the shopping center. We always drive to town since parking is easy to find in town. The room is very quiet and spacious with 2 bed and 2 bath. The host is so nice that they even gave us a converter plug for our US computer, I wanted to buy it, but...

We spent two wonderful nights at "Ruby's cottage". The cottage was perfectly equipped with very comfortable interior. Just two minutes walking distance from Lake Wanaka. Our kids loved the Outdoor Hot Tub. Definitely one of those places which we'd love to get back to!

Close enough to town to enjoy but far enough to be quiet & relaxed. Rooms are well done and the bathroom was awesome! Breakfast was above and beyond what we expected! Feels a bit cramped as the upstairs rooms feel like bedrooms in a house.

We had just one night here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was on the small side but very comfortable with everything to make so. Tea, coffee , muffins, biscuits and fresh fruit available in the lounge all day. We enjoyed sitting in the lounge and relaxing. Free laundry facilities. Breakfast was very good and enjoyed chatting with fellow travelers....

We were delighted with this spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and very welcoming accommodation. Excellent breakfast, very good facilities including a central guest lounge, garden with garden furniture and very good laundry. Well positioned for lovely walks by the lake.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. I too enjoy the seclusion and shelter of being surrounded by established trees and gardens and then only a two minute walk to the lake front.

Our greeting was mechanistic and lacking any warmth. Our room had sloping ceilings and felt quite pokey. There are good additional facilities such as free laundry and inviting sitting room. Coffee and tea are available downstairs to take back to your room. The bedrooms doors are very noisy when they shut and we were awoken by photographer guests at 5...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. All feed back is important so we can make changes to enhance our guests stay. I apologise sincerely if my greeting was mechanical. That is certainly not how I wish to portray myself. The room you stayed in is the smallest in the bed and breakfast lodge but is advertised...

Lodge was away from the main commercial district right next to a park and the lakeside. Attractive buildings and very nice rooms. We were told that the building was constructed using materials from an older structure. We were able to do our laundry when we arrived. Nice and quiet at night and breakfasts were superb. We highly recommend this lodge.

This hotel is very nice. Well-appointed, and delicious breakfast! They also have very nice products in the bathroom! It is not directly in the town center, but very close-by. The staff is also very friendly.

Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. The hosts were so kind, the room was clean and cute, the breakfast was wonderful, and the location is just far enough from the center but just close enough too. Highly recommend this one, if you can get a reservation.
