I'm not sure I've ever stayed in a nicer hotel. I have stayed in some lovely places but this was something special. My room had a fantastic view over lush green lawn and the picturesque lake. The service from the staff was lovely, particularly the restaurant staff, where I was remembered and greeted warmly, and drink preferences were also remembered....

If you get a lake facing room this is a wonderful location. From the back the accommodation is rather dull and functional - showing its age. Inside the lounge & bedrooms were very comfortable but the bathroom needed an update- plugs didn't fit, no ventilation and window was jammed shut, showe knob tricky to operate, tiling a bit stained &...

This was a really nice motel visit. We had a spacious apartment, we had a friend traveling with us for a bit and she got a room that was adjoined. It had great views of the lake and you could walk directly onto it for a quick walk. If you wanted to walk to town it was 30 minutes around...

We did not use any of the hotel facilities so the will be brief. The hotel and grounds enjoy a great location beside Lake Wanaka and the twenty minute lakeside walk into town is a delight. Check in was speedy and efficient and the staff are friendly. Our room had a pleasant outlook over both mountains and the lake. The...

The food at Edgewater is fine, though fairly highly priced. However the wait was interminable, without explanation until we asked. 1.5 hours for our mains! The TV plays sports continuously - is this supposed to be a pub? Not with these prices I think. And the same elevator music goes around and around. Not impressed sorry. Edgewater please, at the...

Lovely room and amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. Breathtaking views of the lake and mountains. Would definitely stay here again, we didn't want to leave! One downer was no fresh towels at the spa so we had a cold walk back to our room afterward...

During a walk around the lake to the Rippon Winery, I stopped here for a glass of wine. Although the venue was lovely and the staff friendly, it took 10 minutes to get waited on after receiving the wine list. It then took another 10 minutes to actually get my glass of wine. I was never approached to see if...

The resort is located right next to Lake Wanaka. The rooms were comfortable with great views of the lake. The resort staff were really friendly and professional as well. The breakfast at the resort is surprising great!

This was booked for us and through and agency so we were very pleasantly surprised at our 1 bedroom unit - perfect as we have a toddler so it was nice to have more space, a kitchen and a washer/dryer. We had a quick dip in the lake directly off the hotels grounds, a play on the playground and kicked...

We have had lunch here several times - it never disappoints. Their scone selection is amazing. Especially lemon and poppy seed! They advise a 30 minute wait as they are baked fresh - well worth the wait !!!! And a calming space with lakeside views.
