Stayed here for 3 nights while exploring Wanaka. The rooms were spacious with a separate sitting room and bedroom. There was a full kitchen including a dishwasher AND a washer and dryer IN the room! The sliding glass doors looked out onto a nice seating area and small rushing brook. Several ducks would visit daily. Great location to walk anywhere...

Probably said it all in the title. We liked it so much we asked to stay another night and thanks to a bit of effort from our hosts it was done. Highly recommended if you want somewhere close to town in Wanaka. We would stay there again. P.s. Love that we had ducks by the stream in front of the...

I cannot recommend Clearbrook enough! Checked in late at night after an awful experience at a nearby hostel and John was so lovely and helpful. Put us up in an amazing room with everything you could need - unlimited wifi, tea, coffee, bath tub, television, lovely beds and little touches. Well worth the money paid, especially for the friendly and...

Wanaka is a casualmplace so you dont need so much luxury during your stay. Here ,in clearbrook hotel I felt like home because I found everything I needed - a small kitchen / small diningroom / laundry and a small balcony hosting the ducks :). The price is also reasonable, and the location is very convenient.

A lovely stream flows through the front of the property, it looks so perfect you almost...

Having been biased against motels, Clearbrook totally changed our view! It is very central, so perfect for all places in Wanaka; it is in a quiet position, with a pretty brook burbling through the site. The rooms were fantastic: a large open plan sitting room/diner, with a very well equipped kitchen; a good sized separate bedroom with a very comfortable...

This is a lovely motel, and the best we've stayed at so far on our tour of NZ. We had a lovely, well equipped room, with a patio and lawn in front with the clear brook running past. The owner was very helpful, and supplied us with complimentary milk and washing powder. There was a washing machine and dryer in...

While a bit $$, you do get what you pay for! We had a 1 bedroom downstairs and it was wonderful. Jacuzzi/spa bath, kitchen with great amenities, a washing machine AND dryer, complimentary washing powder is available from reception. There is a clothes airer in the bedroom so you can hang and dry your clothes outside. Downstairs was a great...

The staff was friendly, the room clean, and the service good. The rel plus is the washer and dryer in the food. The large grocery is not far from the hotel with a good produce, dairy, and wine selection.
