This resort is in a beautiful setting on the lakeshore outside Wanaka. Our room was very spacious, bright and airy with a nice balcony overlooking manicured lawns leading down to the lake. We were only there for one night so didn't have time to take advantage of the excellent facilities on offer - tennis courts, spa, sauna, 9-hole putting green....

Our room, number 115, has a water view and is well appointed in every respect.the breakfast buffet in the morning was very good, with a wide variety of cereals, fruit, eggs, bacon, ham, cheese and many different breads and pastries. Very convenient location...

Was a really nice place to stay, room had a great view of the duck pond, nice comfy beds, nice and clean. No complaints would gladly stay here again. Wee bit more expensive but definitely worth the bit extra.

Friends had been previously and order was lost; however keen to try the much talked about scones, along with anticipated coffee for morning tea, so trying again. Relatively busy and somewhat understaffed. Queued at counter to place orders, informed coffee in 10 minutes and 30 for scones as freshly made (had run out of date scones at this stage? ?...

Great spot for a business lunch with a colleague. The food was excellent. We had the baguette special which today was chicken and brie. Coffee was very good and the wine list was excellent. Price of the baguette was $18 so a fair price if it is possible to put a price on the view!

All organised for us by the Edgewater wedding planner. Great value for money and really special location for a wedding with fantastic views, lovely venue and everything we needed to host a wedding for 70 people. The price even included the wedding suite, a bottle of champagne and breakfast. Thankyou for making it so easy for us.

We only stopped here for 1 night, we had a 1 Bedroom Suite which was very nice, amenities were very good apart from the bathroom which needed refurbishing, the view from the room was good looking over the lake.

Hotel is in good position on the lake and 15/20 minutes walk into town. The room was comfortable if slightly dated but everything we needed. Only gripe was the low free internet allowance, like many of the bigger hotel groups in NZ they haven't quite worked out that good wi fi is a customer expectation.

At Edgewater we have genuine local knowledge that complements our inviting accommodation and enticing seasonal menu. We can unlock the very best Wanaka experiences, tailored for you. Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater. ... more   less
