This holiday park is one of the best. Clean, quiet and deserves the awards it has won. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The shop is very basic and the camp is situated quite a long walk from the central meeting point, the log cabin. There is no public transport in Wanaka and the taxi cost $12.

Great motel just past the main part of town, good range of accommodation some with open fires, the views over Lake Wanaka unfortunately is disappearing as the trees grow taller but the view is still excellent, great service, had great camping and caravan area, spa and sauna, free WiFi but its frightfully slow, easy walk to town

We stayed here last year and then again this month. This is a no-frills type of accommodation and it certainly is well priced for what you get. The views are absolutely stunning and it is quiet and peaceful. The staff are very friendly and are so keen to make your stay enjoyable. We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit which... More

We booked into one of the Bayview Motel's Deluxe studio units for 5 nights and I think it was the same "disabled" unit reviewed by previous reviewers. In my opinion it doesn't live up to the name "deluxe". We usually stay at another motel in Wanaka on our other skiing holidays here, and for $25 less for a studio unit... More

We choose this place because we were staying in nz for a long time and needed somewhere affordable. The place is tired but they do the very best with what they have and we were happy with that.

Unfortunately we too experienced a horrible smell in our unit, and it detracted from our stay significantly. For the price it would have been acceptable if not for this, but I found myself dreading going back to the awaiting aroma.

We stayed in a small studio apartment in the low season. This motel is ideal for those on a budget seeking a relatively quiet place to stay in Wanaka. The room included an OK double and single bed, basic TV channels and the shower was excellent. The room rate included free Wi-Fi, a free newspaper and a free courtesy shuttle... More

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The units are older but they are tidy and clean and very comfortable. Great for the price we paid. Great views. The autumn colours were just amazing. Only a 25 min walk to the town centre. The weather was absolutely superb. Thank you.
