We had a quick overnight stay at the Lakeview Motel i Wanaka. We loved the view from the spa and the location up the hill, just away from the main strip. The rooms were also surprisingly cute as well, with a breakfast bar looking over the lake.

We loved staying at the Lakeview Motel! From the balcony view overlooking Lake Wanaka and mountains, to the pristinely clean and comfortably appointed apartment, to the welcoming and accommodating managers, we couldn't have been happier! My husband and I spent 10 days in the southern part of the south island and ended up spending 5 nights here! The knowledgeable managers...

Lakeview is a very compact building on 3 levels with stunning views over the lake. The few units are spacious, spotlessly clean and very comfortable and each has an individual outside space and overlook the lake. The small communal terrace including parking, BBQ and Hot Tub encourages al fresco dining but this could be more attractive with a little imaginative...

Our group had 4 units here between us. Our unit was on the top floor, and had much better views than the lower units. The bed in ours was a loft type up some stairs, so need to be OK with lugging cases upstairs and not much room to move once there. The ceiling also slopes, so easy to bang...

This Motel is only small with 6 rooms and the rooms are lovely, stunning views from every room and well set out, spotlessly clean and welcoming. We loved our stay and recommend to anyone wanting a quiet motel with views of the lake and close to the town ( 5 min walk to the cafe and restaurants) Manager was so...

The view is great and away from town (5 min drive). There is also a BBQ for use. The rooms were clean, fresh and very comfortable. The service was a little too hands off for me; and I really dislike those little long life milk containers provided for tea and coffee. The other thing to be aware of is street...

We absolutely loved staying at the lakeview motel. Seems they have recently renovated some interiors such as shower and bathroom. Room was clean with fantastic lake view! Kitchen does not have stovetop (microwave only) so not much cooking can be done (is to prevent food odor disturbing next person's stay) but you can use BBQ in the backyard. They offer...

Great spot to stay. A little away from the hassle and bustle of town but 10 walking gets you into the action. Open the curtains and drink in the view. Stunning. After a long day out a seat outside with a glass of wine is the perfect run down
