20min walk to downtown, fantastic lake view fm the room also the snow mountain in the distance. The room is very comfortable but little bit small, stuff is very nice and helpful. The dinner is also delicious, we really enjoy the stay in Edgewater only one weak piont which is not too much choice for the buffet breakfast.

Basic and clean hotel. We stayed in a hotel room and we had a great view from our balcony. It's about a 25 minute walk into town...a lovely walk along the lake front. We bought some fruit from town to eat, but when we asked for bowls from reception, they said no due to health and safety reasons. I thought... More

This property is all sparkles. Right from the location which is bang on the lake , to its superbly manicured lawns or its cozy rooms. The glass window corner is where u can spend the entire day reading a book..I must say this place is fantastic . Breakfast was basic. Highly recommended

A lovely resort on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Grounds surrounding are well groomed and lush and green. The 1 bed room is small, but at least has a balcony. $100 extra for a suite, which I would have paid if possible to get one. Lots to do, and is walking distance to town. View here from our room.

You certainly cannot beat the location- right on the lake which is gorgeous. The staff seemed inexperienced in the restaurant areas both at night & at breakfast - there were obvious mistakes being made at both times. Rooms were comfortable but not very sound proof.

Manicured grounds, tastefully decorated, plenty of room. I liked everything about this place except for one thing. We paid a reasonable amount and for that breakfast should have been included, it wasn't. No matter we went to Alchemy and it was perfect. All ok in the end.

This was the best accommodation we stayed in during our 2 week tour of the South Island. We loved that it was right on the lake and a little way out of town, avoiding the noise of a tourist town. Edgewater is very professionally managed. If you want to know how to run a resort, just spend time here. We... More

We stayed here for four nights while touring Wanaka. Our room was an upstairs room accessed through a shared door on the ground level. The room had a lake view and was comfortable. We especially liked the heater in the bathroom which felt great during the rainy or chilly days there. The location is in a residential neighborhood and is... More
