Living in the hustle and bustle of Queenstown it was great to be able to step out of the bubble and take a weekend break in Wanaka. Booked into the Edgewater and we loved our experience and would highly recommend this resort to friends. We made good use of the spa pool and also sauna- just prepare yourselves and give...

Our first impression was a wonderfully positive one with a friendly, warm welcome by the attending receptionist. In fact, all the staff we encountered were first rate. Our room was cosy and the view magnificent. Dinner and breakfast was superb and we left knowing that we would be back again.

Our stay at Edgewater was magnificent. Firstly, my friend and I hadn't planned any transport to the hotel once we had arrived in Wanaka. While making plans at the local tourism information centre (iSite) one of the ladies there went out of her way to call Edgewater for us and get a porter to come and collect us from town....

We really enjoyed staying here, it was a pity it was only for one night! We had room 101 which was right next to the lake with a fantastic view. The room was clean and warm, with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Easy access to the lake meant we could go straight from our room to the walking track,...

It's a shame it rained for the time we were here and the restaurant and lobby was being decorated but that meant we could have food delivered to our room to enjoy the stunning location on the edge of Lake Wanaka. We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment which was huge and had plenty of space to relax. It would...

I stayed here on business and found it pleasant and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful and the view from my room was lovely. Only irritation was asking for a fruit platter and glass of wine at 8.45 (room service was until nine) and being told the chef had gone home. I ended up going down to the bar for...

The Edgewater Resort is ideally located on the shores of Lake Wanaka and was undergoing major refurbishment at the time of our visit. We were staying in the Edgewater Club section of the resort which is time-share accommodation. However, the architecture and internal design of units are quite similar. Our 1br unit was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is compact...

We stayed here for a few nights on our trip through the South Island. The room in itself was so nice, the winter sun coming in the big window/sliding door was perfect and watching the sun rise over the lake from our room was very nice. Reception were nice to deal with & the spa was nice after a long...

Great place. I've been to NZ before but never to Wanaka. Absolutely love it. The 2 bedroom unit is great. Beautiful location and very comfortable unit. My only criticism is that the wall heaters are inadequate for the cool climate. Our first night here went to -2 and the unit was very cold. There are three heaters and all have...

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
