The hotel was very clean and comfortable. It was close to all main attractions, including shops, restaurants and bars. We would recommend this to others. The Mexican restaurant attached to the hotel served delicious food.

Our stay was comfortable a bit noisy in the first morning with foreign tourists speaking loudly but a nice sleep in the next morning. Helpful staff, a great room to store our mountain bikes and a very comfortable bed.

The room was great; sufficient amenities, bright, good amount of power points and a great location relative to the lake. The hotel also has a number of great food choices in very close proximity which we definitely took advantage of. The wifi was also good quality and staff had some helpful information for the area.

Wanaka is a beautiful place and the hotel is in a central position, nice room, comfortable bed. There was a shared kitchen and laundry facilities if we needed them. The frontage is hotel but it is more of a motel.Plenty of places to eat nearby.

Very convenient Receptionist was a bit funny, but hey...) Location is great, view from the window was great and balcony was a bonus. Communal kitchen is convenient . Good what car park was included. We stayed second night in a much more expensive place, but I liked this one better!)

Wanaka Hotel is more a motel than a hotel. Great bedding and spot clean. Perfectly located in the city center, near the lake and with restaurants and shops all around. However nothing fancy. Dull corridors and reception hall. Efficient, competent but not smiling front desk staff.

I found the staff very friendly and the location of the hotel was very good as it's in the Main Street of Wanaka. The room was very good clean and tidy and up to a high standard. The cafe attached was also very handy to the hotel and the food was good.

A 60s Hotel with little improvement or up grading in that time. We had a very old fashioned poorly fitted room with a bathroom which was more like a cheap hostel. There had been a recently applied paint job; not very professional and didn't offset smelly old carpet or an old extremely uncomfortable bed. The only thing this hotel has...
