Absolutely loved our stay in Wanaka and this motel was perfect. It seems to be fairly recently decorated, everything was lovely and modern. Nice filter coffee and the only thing we would change is it would be lovely to have some fresh milk instead of the little long life sachets. The hosts were so friendly and we had a lovely...

We stayed at 3 motels in Wanaka over a 2 week period. This was the best by some distance. Very well equipped and comfortable chalet. Marvellous views across Lake Wanaka and mountains. Friendly and very helpful staff. Ideal.

Clean unit with view over oval to the lake, close to the shops etc. has been renovated, and conveniently includes small kitchen although no exhaust fan over stove. A comfortable bed in a small bedroom. Found it quiet overnight. Ok...

Comfortable and 5 mins walk to town. My son liked his room because it was nice and quiet. Unlike some motels, the cleaner did the dishes for us. There was a cookie for us with tea and coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpfully.

Simply love this place! Beautiful motel with mountain view right outside your doorstep. Vanessa was very friendly and helpful to us. She introduced us to visit some of the local attractions. There is a kitchenette where you can prepare small meals. My husband and I even took the bicycle for a ride (free-of-charge) to explore the nearby town center. This...

Lovely apartment with friendly and helpful hosts. Great location, outside of the centre but still only a few mins walk to everything. We stayed the week prior to the A&P Show so the park opposite was closed off being set up for that, which affected our view a bit and traffic increased closer to show day too.
