Stayed for three nights whilst we explored the area. The room was spacious and clean with a small kitchenette area (kettle, fridge, microwave) and separate toilet and bathroom. there is a breakfast bar built into the bay window which gives glorious views of Lake Wanaka. There is a barbecue outside, with large dining table, which is perfect for cooking steaks...

Stayed for one night in Wanaka, which is a lovely town surrounded by lakes. This motel has a gorgeous view of the marina on Lake Wanaka. Our room was down the bottom of a narrow driveway. Room itself was fine for a night, but these other factors may be an issue if staying longer: small kitchenette with only a microwave,...

This place consists of 6 units, 3 up top with 3 car parks and 3 down below with 3 car parks which are accessed down a small driveway. Wheelchair access units, i think, would be the ground floor rooms, unsure if there is a ramp from the driveway though, would pay to ask before booking. The guy behind the counter...

The view from this motel was absolutely stunning, even from our downstairs room. We loved the breakfast bar in the bay window overlooking the lake and mountains:) The room was well appointed, bed was comfortable and all was clean. It was great to be able to walk into town, with restaurants, groceries and the lakefront only about 10 mins away....

Room 5 was a loft bedroom room which may or may not be to everyone's liking. Up and down the stairs to the bathroom in the dark in the middle of the night, half asleep - perhaps not. No room in the loft for luggage (saves lugging cases up and down stairs) meant the small lounge area was just a...

I agree with all the other reviews, yes you get excellent views of Wanaka for a competitive mid-range price. Considering how trendy (and sometimes pricey) Wanaka is, it could possibly be the best bang for your buck accommodation in town. I had a top level room which had facilities comparable to a motel, but the interior design was quite modern...

This was a lovely motel with good lake views as in an elevated position. Room was clean and comfortable with enough parking and a BBQ and hot tub. Laundry service available and staff were very and helpful. Wanaka centre was circa a 10 minute walk with steps to use as a short cut and small supermarket nearby.

It's all in the name - Lakeview motel. What you get (especially if you were on the upper floor like me) is a huge vista of the lake and Roy's Peak on the other side with the marina in view as well. It's just spectacular. The motel itself is very close to the main restaurant street but up on a...

We had a quick overnight stay at the Lakeview Motel i Wanaka. We loved the view from the spa and the location up the hill, just away from the main strip. The rooms were also surprisingly cute as well, with a breakfast bar looking over the lake.

We loved staying at the Lakeview Motel! From the balcony view overlooking Lake Wanaka and mountains, to the pristinely clean and comfortably appointed apartment, to the welcoming and accommodating managers, we couldn't have been happier! My husband and I spent 10 days in the southern part of the south island and ended up spending 5 nights here! The knowledgeable managers...
