"I stayed one night in family room. Our room has 2 floors in this room. One queen bed and single bed is on the mezzanine floor and another queen bed is on the lower floor. Both floors has an amazing view for hawea lake, but the balcony is on the lower floor. Balcony has a sitting area to relax also. All furnitures are new and clean. No lounge, no kitchen, and no dining table. The location is great to relax. At first, I decided to stay at wanaka lake but I wanna have a good sleep in calm. I changed my mind to stay at hawea lake instead, and. I'm not regret. This place is so quiet and very beautiful scenic. I loved hawea lake the most in southern lake. However, there's not much restaurants and shops around hawea lake. There's another cafe and supermarket near this hotel also. We decided to have a dinner at the hotel. Steaks was good especially pork ribs. The stunning views from restaurants also. Free parking in front of your room, unlimited free wifi. Nice staff. Even if he told me that he didnt receive a payment from agoda, but he rechecked with agoda by himself and clear all issues with agoda."

"Loved our stay here at the Wanaka Hotel although it was just a night stay. The room was clean and cozy and I could step out of our room to an amazing view of Wanaka town. Everything was just within our walking distance and we decided to take a cool, breezy stroll along the main street. Parking is convenient as well. Not exactly the cheapest place but it was well worth it. :)"

"I have been to few Wyndham's and finding one at Wanaka was a nice surprise, much like the small resort town of Wanaka itself, its like a hidden treasure . The rooms were spacious, well managed and clean. The rooms were equipped with everything that one can imagine that is requiruired for a stay. The staff was outstanding . Special mention to the lady at the front desk and the bartender - Bruno (if I recollect his name correctly). They are knowledgeable about the place and take a lot of pride in the work that theydo & the city that they represent. The bar didnt have meny options but for what they offer, they do it well. I had a vegetarian pizza along with my drinks and it was fantastic. Its a pity that I took Wanaka as a stopover and could not spend more than a day here. But If I would ever come to this town again, there is no doubt in my mind that I am heading to Wyndham. "

"Hotels in New Zealand are priced similarly depending on the category so it took us quite awhile and a leap of faith to select Fairway Motels and was it worth it. For the budget conscious, the room came fully equipped with a stove, pots and pans that allowed us to do our cooking and it was so spacious for the two of us. We really enjoyed our stay here despite it being a 5min walk to the town centre but it shouldnt affect your decision. "

"Stayed here 1 night for holiday. I really regret it because Wanaka so beautiful you need at least 2 nights to get around it. Lakeview motel is a lovely place to stay in Wanaka. Its got a nice view to Lake Wanaka, and morning time.... the view is just mesmerizing. Really wished to stay longer. The room is spacious, adequate heating and just lovely and clean. I travel 15 days in South Island, and I would considered my stay here is the best value for money. The location is just 1.8km downhill walk from city center. Absolutely lovely place to stay."
