Fantastic place considering the price. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. The bedroom had two single beds with an awesome heater. The living room had ample space. A very comfortable double bed and a single bed. The double bed could be closed with a roller door. There was a dinig table, a kitchenette with a stove top and plenty... More

I only spent one night and I didn't want to leave! The host was wonderful and welcoming. The room was everything I wanted. Clean, comfortable and a good size. A good sized kitchen, bathroom and comfy bed. I had a great little patio with a beautiful view. Wifi was free, quick and easy to use. A very short walk to... More

We had a great stay in the studio with a view over the town to the lake an mountains. Manager Jenny was so helpful, nothing was a problem. Spacious unit that was really clean. The internet service in Wanaka is slow there is no fibre yet. Would recommend as a comfy and friendly place to stay.

The room is really nice and comfy, very suitable for those who visit Wanaka as a family, because the room is very large and spacious. The room also includes a kitchen complete with oven, stove, microwave, fridge and cutleries and pans etc. though the kitchen is placed rather oddly in the room - at the hallway leading to the door....

Stayed overnight during a road trip of the South Island. This was a good motel in a convenient location. Our room had a balcony with great views over Wanaka. The motel was clean, comfortable and provided all facilities. Would certainly stay here again if in the area.

Our room had a balcony with a great view over Wanaka, was quiet, spotless & very friendly at check-in. It's an easy short walk to supermarket, restaurants, and the lake. There was a separate bedroom we didn't use which does have some noise from the distant road into town, but there are trees to quiet it down a bit.

Wanaka Heights motel fits the formula of an older, spacious, family-run motel with full cooking facilities, our preference in accommodation in NZ. Everything was exceptionally clean and well maintained, apart from a reading lamp that couldn't be fixed, of little concern to us. The bed was very comfortable, and there were tables and chairs both inside and outside the room.... More
