Edgewater is a nice hotel with access to the Lake, located in a quiet residential neighborhood. The town center is about a 5 minute drive away, where all the prominent restaurants/bars/shops are to be found. We were fortunate to receive an upgrade to a 1 Bedroom Apartment with part Lake views on the Ground Floor (Room 805). The room was...

We rented a room upstairs with a nice view of the lake. We were there for a very short time but could see all the possibilities this place had if you wanted to stay longer.

Recommended by our USA travel agent. Located in a residential neighborhood on Lake Wanaka. Older facility but well maintained. Our room (510) had views of the lake in a quiet location. Close to town for shopping and restaurants. Very comfortable room with no AC. WiFi worked well. Staff was very pleasant at check-in. Highly recommend this property.

We stayed in a studio unit on the first storey, that overlooked the lake. Very peaceful, and a lovely outlook. Great location being just out of Wanaka, and a short walk into town around the lakefront. Comfy bed, very adequate but the room is starting to look a bit tired and dated.

Stayed here while in wanaka, the check in process was nice and easy. Room was nice with a nice view onto the lake. Decent bed and bathroom facilities which made for a good night sleep. A decent walk into the town but not strenuous in any way. We didn't dine here so have no comments about the restaurant

This is more like a resort. We had a lake facing room overlooking the mountain range. Very spacious room. Would highly recommend. Can't cook in the room in case you are looking for cooking option. Large green lawns offer a soothing atmosphere while having a drink / coffee at the balcony.

Kia Ora Thanks so much for such a glowing review. We do appreciate you taking the time. I believe you may have been in one of our studio/hotel rooms. They don't have cooking options, as you rightly pointed out, however our suites and two-bedroom apartments offer guests a small kitchenette. Regards Trish

At Edgewater we have genuine local knowledge that complements our inviting accommodation and enticing seasonal menu. We can unlock the very best Wanaka experiences, tailored for you. Edgewater is a four star Qualmark graded property situated on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Come and touch the seasons at Edgewater. ... more   less
