We rented a 1 bed apartment. Spacious, nicely kept, good fixtures and fittings. Beautiful beautiful grounds to the hotel. Friendly team in the restaurants and bars. Located a little bit out of Wanaka town itself - short walk or quick cycle.

A little further out of town than we first thought but there is a lovely walk back in to town around the lake and takes 15-20 mins. Room spotless and overlooked the lake and 'pond'. Bathroom definitely not 4+* but maybe that is because we are from U.K. where standards higher. Nothing on the menu that took our fancy and...

From the moment of check until departure 3 days later I have to say that I was very impressed with this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, cheerful and clean. The views are stunning. We ate at the restaurant in the evenings and found the service to be prompt , polite and helpful especially with suggestions from the food and wine...

I have to be careful to remain fair with this review as I really did not like staying at Edgewater, but there was nothing particularly wrong with it. I have a very spacious 1 bed apartment with lovely views. There was a large lounge dining area with small modern and functional kitchenette, a large master bedroom with a comfortable king...

As part of our road trip in South Island, we stopped by in Wanaka for 2 nights. Edgewater is an excellent choice for stay in this relaxing town of Wanaka. A short drive away from the town centre, Edgewater Wanaka occupies an enviable location - right on the shores of Lake Wanaka. Almost all the rooms afford views of the...

Located at the lake at a 15 minute walk from downtown Wanaka it offers well equipped apartments with nice views to a garden and also to the lake. Good access to the rooms from the car and also to the garden and lake trail to Wanaka. Dinning room is nice as well as the living room.

We had a lovely room at first floor level and the lounge overlooked the lake. The bed was fairly large with lovely linen and very comfortable. Be aware there is no lift but that wasn't a problem for us. The breakfast area was very cramped with a coach party eating at that time, but generally ok. We found there wasn't...

An OK stay but it did not live up to the promise of its website. First of all it was not easy to find, hidden away amongst a group of houses and the GPS had it in a different location.The room was large and clean and in parkland type grounds. Lake - what lake? Oh yes, found it when we...

Kia Ora We appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences though very clearly we didn't meet up to your expectations. I am intrigued about the GPS matter as we are correctly labeled on google maps. Similarly I'd be interested to know of your room number as Edgewater hotel's rooms do have lake views.....not necessarily the case in Edgewater...

We had been told that Wanaka was a lovely little town. It's not. It's another low rise holiday destination which you have to drive through to arrive at Edgewater! Ahh.... It's around the other side of the lake, so quiet and a very nice green and pleasant resort hotel. There is a walk in either direction along the lakeside. Guest...

This was by far our worst experience in our 40 days in New Zealand. On arrival it felt like we were an inconvenience, where was the normal NZ welcome? certainly not here!
