We arrived at the hotel during late evening after office closing. On our way from Franc Joseph we didn’t get network to make a call and inform reception about our late arrival, weather was bad that evening… heavy rainfall for 2-3hrs!! When we arrived at the hotel everything was shut, we didn’t know what to do thought lets go close...

We stayed for one night on our way from Franz Josef to Te Anau. We had a downstairs room with a view. Fantastic view of the lake and the town. Also just a short walk down to the lakeside. The receptionist was very friendly. The room was a bit dated but quite satisfactory. The walls were a little thin (re...

I pretty much totally agree with starlight19128 comments except for the restaurant Tate as we did not eat there. We did a lot of walking around the township & really loved it. I would also have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

We only stayed here one night, which was a shame as we thought it was quite charming. We had room 2 on the lower level, double bed, kitchen area and separate shower and toilet. Parking right outside, mind it's a bit tight though if you have a larger vehicle. The accommodation was very clean and well maintained, and the views...

My wife and I stayed here twice in late January - twice because we liked it so much we went back. We were in room 3 which has a bay window with a fantastic view across Lake Wanaka to the mountains. Great for an evening drink outside, or to sit at the bench and munch your breakfast. The owners were...

Lovely views over the lake, this is a small motel in Wanaka and one of the older ones I would say. Away from the hustle and bustle but well within walking distance. No problem with that, it was clean, tidy, well appointed and the hosts were very friendly and hospitable. Price was good. Then there was the resident cat, very...

Stayed two nights at the start of our New Zealand trip. We were on the bottom level which was convenient for parking. Be aware that the driveway down is not too wide but was fine for our compact rental car. As you have read elsewhere, the view is amazing. There is a shortcut to town on foot off Lismore street...

We arrived into Wanaka on a rainy afternoon and the clouds were covering the mountains. We loved the little window seat and sat there enjoying the lake view and using the free wifi to catch up on emails. We were thrilled with this 6 apartments complex hidden in a back street with parking right out the door. Later we took...

Arrived this later than initially communicated to them but they are flexible enough to accommodate us. Area is large with separate toilet and bathing area, Living area, small kitchen and bed at level 2. Couldn't really get used to the bed as the side are enclosed by walls and the window is facing the road. So we kept the windows...
