The motel was a little hard to find because we didn't have a map of Wanaka. The room we had was very comfortable, good sized and clean. We were very pleased with our little garden in the backyard and the TV (with Sky). The shower was very strong and steady but the hot water was not enough for 3 people. The bathroom is right next to the main walk path outside our room, and other motel residents could have seen us through the bathroom window - we didn't feel very comfortable about that.
However, the customer service the motel provided was f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c. The motel manager/owner (Ian??) was a great man, he and his daughter gave us HEAPS of information on what to do, where to eat..etc. We were looked after very well, and they even saw us off after we checked out.
Thank you for looking after us, Aspiring Lodge Motel.
