We loved our stay at the quirky Wanaka View Motel. It has the most amazing views of the mountains and lake, is in walking distance to town, everything you need is provided including bicycles if you're keen for a treddle! You have your own little kitchen which is a money saver too. Our chalet was quite compact but had everything... More

Great location just a few minutes from Wanaka centre and good selection of bars and restaurants there. Parking good with rooms very comfortable and well appointed. We were in one of the front chalets and the view was wonderful. Washing machine availability and good wi-fi also appreciated. Helen was extremely helpful from arrival to departure. Can definitely recommend.

Stayed here for only 1 night during my trip but the motel was great! Very accomodating to our schedule and the lake view room was perfect! Rooms are very clean and modern with a very comfortable bed! We enjoyed dinner in our room with an amazing view of the lake. Free wifi and free parking was also a nice touch.... More

Outstanding view and beautifully furnished and decorated. We stayed in the front chalet and loved it. I thought it might be noisy as the street was busy but not at night it was very quiet. Easy walk to the restaurants and bars. Owner on check in was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment (Chalet) which fit 6 person perfectly. The room is very clean. Free wifi is available and worked really well. We planned to stay only one night but end up stay there 2 nights. Great place!!!

WHAT A VIEW from lakeview rooms. Staff were helpful and friendly. Nice rooms comfortable with everything. Laundry and free car parking on site. Big open park over the road. Easy Walk to shops, restaurants. Walk trails nearby or easy drive too. Studio is quite squishy so expect that.

An amazing location and views overlooking the waterfront, and within short walking distance of the city centre. The room was immaculate. Beds were very comfortable. The owners were great, and treated us like long lost friends. Highly recommend this motel to everyone.
